Adult parties can be as fun or as formal as you want. Depending on the crowd you might want a super fun childish event with all the works, magicians, face painters, games, etc. If your crowd is a little more reserved, an event with less pomp and circumstance may be a better option. Find the party that is ideal for your group and either go all out with decor and activities, or keep it to a minimum with just a slight hint of a theme. What matters is that you and your guests have a good time!
Marie Antoinette Party
The great thing about a Marie Antoinette Party is that it travels across all ages, enticing young and old alike with the assortment of color, sweets, and richness of the decor.
Make the centerpiece of your party a beautiful and elegant dessert table.
Go to a grocery store or bakery and buy a wide assortment of pastries and desserts. Since you have so much variety, don’t worry about buying one piece per guest, chances are people will not try every single dessert! Go the extra mile and write a banner over your dessert table that reads ‘Let them eat cake”
Purchase a few fake jewels or feathers to decorate the dessert table with or to scatter over the main eating table.
If you like to serve a tea party style meal don’t forget an assortment of teas and a few finger foods and tea sandwiches.
Find some frilly table cloths or use large doilies as placemats.
Have pretty fans laid out so guests can cool themselves just like the royals in Versailles. Double them up as favors.
We love these adorable cake pops which come in sets of 12 and are great on the table or as party favors.
If you have young children, serve their beverages in these Pink Cupcake Cups (8) so as to avoid any spills.
Games and Activities
Set up a hat making station for your guests. Buy a few simple straw hats and a lot of decorations such as fake jewels, feathers, ribbon and allow guests to make their very own fancy hat.
Have a Marie Antoinette photo op. Buy or rent a few period costumes for the guests to try on and then take photos and give them to your guests as a favor.
