May promises flowers and beautiful Spring days, making it the perfect month to host a special get-together!
There are many joyous occasions in May that can be incorporated into themed events. Read on to learn about our top 5 May Party ideas!
No Diet Day/Eat What You Want (May 6 or 11) Take advantage of one (or both) of these delectable diet free days! No diet means no worrying about what foods or beverages to serve to party guests. Institute a “No complaining” rule and invite attendees to bring their favorite unhealthy snacks. If you wanted to add decorations to the party, anything food or drink related would work.
Mother’s Day (May 10) Mother’s Day is the perfect time to demonstrate appreciation. After all of the years of planning annual birthday parties, it’s time to give the moms a break and throw a party to honor everything they do! Invest in some bright or pastel colored decorations that spell out “Mom.” Flowers would also be appropriate for decor. Contact your mother’s favorite catering company or restaurant and make sure they provide all of her favorite foods!
World Baking Day (May 17) Calling all bakeaholics! This is your opportunity to host a bakeathon party! Make that sweet treat you’ve been dreaming of and invite all your friends or family over to indulge. You could even experiment with a couple of delicious desserts and see which one is most popular among your guests. A fun party favor idea would be cute aprons and print outs of the recipes used to make the baked goods.
Indy 500 (May 24) Set your engines to party mode because the Indianapolis 500 Car Race is taking place Memorial Day Weekend! Car enthusiasts would love attending an Indy 500 themed party. A successful party would include car themed decorations, such as car table runners, cups, napkins, streamers and checkered flags.
Neighbor Day (May 30) May 30 has been declared National Neighbor Day! National Neighbor day falls on a Saturday this year, so that weekend is going to be the best time to organize a block party. We recommend a potluck-style party and invite each neighbor to bring their own dish. Set up some background music and fun games that would be enjoyed by everyone.
We hope you try one of these festive theme party ideas and may your month be full of flowers, sunshine, good food and fun!
