1.Selecting a venue

First, you should choose whether to hold it indoors or outdoors. You can decide depending on the number of people invited. There are different advantages and disadvantages to these two types of venues.

Pros and cons of indoor

The pros of indoors are that you don't need to worry about the weather. Also, everything is conveniently located. Including colorful lighting,tables,chairs,and a sound system.

The cons are that indoor venue rental costs can be surprisingly high. As an example, an event space that can accommodate 75 people can be rented for between $825 and $1025. And indoor air does not circulate, plus the need for tables and chairs, if the venue is not large enough will seem very narrow.

Pros and cons of the outdoor

The best thing about the outdoors is obviously that it has beautiful views and fresh air. In today's epidemic situation, this is a great advantage. Also outdoor do not have to be restricted.

The cons are also obvious, you will need an event tent. Quictent's 20x20 party tent, which can accommodate 75 people, costs $730. Not only is this less than the cost of renting a venue, but the event tent is also reusable, making it a very economical option.This will provide a weatherproof space for guests to dance, rest and eat in the tent. Also, you will need to consider whether you want to install a floor, grass may not be the best option for dancing.

No matter what venue you end up choosing. One thing to keep in mind is whether there are residential buildings close to the venue. In that case, you will have to consider the time of the ball as well as the volume level. We don't want the police to end the party, do we?

2.Pick a theme

Ball themes can be very diverse, and it also depends on what kind of style and budget you want. If the budget is not sufficient, then I would not recommend the Carnival theme. Because it will require a lot of brightly colored decorations as well as fancy masks.

And the costume of this theme is not suitable for dancing. In contrast, keeping it simple is the key to a successful party. The 80s theme is classic and does not require too much decoration. Or you can choose the most popular themes of the moment: "Euphoria" and "Bridgerton", which will certainly make your party the most popular.Or do not know how to match the clothing and shoes, may try the simplest sneaker ball party.

What is a sneaker ball party?

As the name suggests, it's all about wearing sneakers to the ball, and that's what makes it different from other themed balls. This may be completely different from what you think of as a prom. Compared to high heels and leather shoes, sneakers can keep you comfortable and dance all day long!

What to wear to a sneaker ball party?

Just because it's a sneaker ball doesn't mean you can wear a t-shirt, jacket or jeans. Instead, you need to wear gorgeous outfits such as gowns, skirts, and suits. There is a strong contrast between the glamorous outfits and the sneakers, and this contrast will also allow you to send out the best photos. This is one of the interesting things about sneaker ball.

3.Choice of music

Once you've chosen a theme, music is your crucial next step. After all, music is one of the most important elements of the ball! Consider hiring a live band to play, which always makes the music more engaging.

A DJ can also be a good choice, so there will be a professional to help you choose the music list. And they are also masters of setting the mood. No matter what type of dance you want to choose on the dance floor, tell your DJ that they can help you choose the most appropriate music.

4.Proper decoration

No matter what the theme of the party, the decoration can determine your atmosphere. And lighting is the basis of the decoration. If the venue is outdoors, then hang string lights in the large party tent, and lanterns can be placed in the corners.Or flags, which are inexpensive, easy to hang and add a festive touch to the tent.

There are also balloons that are a classic party decoration that can add color to a event tent. You can use them to create a balloon arch, gather them together, or scatter them throughout the space.It's best to incorporate personalized decorations. Think about what makes your ball unique and figure out how to incorporate those elements into the decorations.

Indoor venues will have more options, gorgeous chandeliers, or vintage disco lights. But the color of the light is best to choose a soft yellow light rather than white light. You need to create a harmonious atmosphere. On the dining table, place candles with gold or silver candle holders of different shapes. If you are afraid of safety issues, you can also use simulated battery candles, which can also provide lighting.

In addition, you can choose balloons, ribbons, and flowers according to the theme. Fresh flowers can be used not only for decoration but also as a photo prop. At the end of the party can also be handed out to guests, is a multi-functional party decoration.

5.Prepare the food

Remember to feed your guests before the dance so that they will have enough energy to dance. If the ball party will last for several hours, a full meal can be provided. And for guests to be able to refuel in the middle of the dance,  simple finger foods can help.

Some small cookies,cut up fruit or cupcakes. If you are inviting people with dietary restrictions, please refer to their needs as well. Don't exclude drinks either. Some of the most popular drinks at the ball include champagne, red and white wine, and signature cocktails. Besides alcohol, plenty of water and non-alcoholic beverages need to be on hand. Don't forget to make sure straws are available. You get the idea, right?
