What makes a party perfect? Is it the guest list, the music you have selected for the night, the food and wine, the ambience? Maybe it is a combination of all these things, or maybe there is a special X factor. We may not know the one thing that can make the perfect party, but we do know that a combination of two factors can make your shindig go from muted whispers to a full on roar – the combination of light and sound.
The Near Perfect Party
What’s new about that, you may think. The trick is to use light and sound in a style that highlights the theme and mood of your party, instead of just having them there because that is what you are supposed to do.
Let’s start with the lights. There is no better way to impress upon the guests your sense of style than with the proper lighting. If it is too bright, it could resemble a circus; if it is too dark, your guests may trip over one another. It is imperative that you set the right light tone, which will then heighten the ambience and the mood you are trying to create.
From lighting we move on to the sound. Now sound is not restricted to the music you have on the speakers. You could use ambient sound, such as a miniature fountain or wind chimes, to introduce your guests to the mood and theme of your party. You can then use your selection of music, which will increase the energy and tempo of the gathering.
Impress Your Style
The way you use the lights and sound to create a unique party experience for your guests is what will remain with them. Distinguish your style from the rest, and you would have created a perfect party.
