When most people travel in search of entertainment/nightlife they seem to end up on the other side of the world, doing the same things they would do at home just with the luxury of not cleaning up after themselves. But if you are able to put up with a bit of a spring clean after your dwellings here are some excellent party/celebration ideas!


Initiation - a primal instinct!

Guests will gather with excitement as the lost city of an Aztec realm is unveiled in a grand ceremony. The opening to the lost city will make you feel like you're in a scene of Indiana Jones. Wander through a dense forest of vines into a open space with two stone pillars with drums, entertainment, live music and possibly a bonfire. The two pillars are where the initiation and ceremonies happen. If you know the stereotype of Aztec parties to 'sacrifice' a virgin then there's your initiation, if not a simple celebration of becoming an adult is sufficient enough!

Roaring Twenties/Flapper/Prohibition

This idea is probably one of my favourites. One of the most glorious eras in our lifetimes; the fashion, the rise of gangsters such as Al Capone and 'Greed is good'. Guests will be greeted by a motley bunch of Capone's gang, who will want to check that no cops or rival gang members gain access. Once they have been admitted, your guests will be stunned by Capone's transformation of the old factory into a glitzy party venue. The only evidence of its everyday use is the 3D wagon laden with bootleg liquor and the moonshine distillery in the corner. Tables will be dressed in black and white, to match the dance floor with black slips and table centres of plumes, gangster hats and feather boas. Intelligent lighting will remind everyone whose party it is by swirling Al Capone's name around the room. A black and white gangster backdrop will enhance the stage.

Here is a list also if you are stuck, these ideas are easy to understand and at your expense to make it the best:
Winter Wonderland,
Wild Wild West
Mardi Gras
Harry Potter
Alice in Wonderland
Las Vegas
Around the World
