As we move into summer party season, it's time to start looking at the latest party trends that are sure to be a hit in the coming year. From new and exciting themes to innovative décor and entertainment options, here are the top party trends for summer 2023:
1- Sustainable Parties Sustainability is becoming an increasingly important trend in all areas of life, and parties are no exception. In 2023, we can expect to see more people embracing eco-friendly party planning, from using paper-based biodegradable or compostable decorations to serving sustainable food and drinks.
2- Virtual Parties With the rise of technology, virtual parties have become increasingly popular in recent years. This trend is set to continue into 2023, with more people hosting virtual parties to connect with friends and family who are far away. From virtual dance parties to online game nights, there are plenty of ways to make virtual parties just as fun and exciting as in-person events. Consider sending out matching cupcake wrappers and toppers prior to the event for each guest to decorate their own goodies before the big day.
3- Unique Themes Tried and true party themes like a “luau beach party” or “princess birthday” are here to stay however, we are seeing more creative and unique themes popping up more regularly. Consider an "80s throwback party," "underwater wonderland," or "enchanted forest" theme.
4- Interactive Entertainment While DJs and live music will always be popular entertainment options, interactive entertainment is set to take center stage in 2023. From virtual reality experiences to escape rooms and interactive performances, guests will be able to immerse themselves in a wide range of fun and engaging activities.
5- Bold Color Schemes This summer we can expect to see more parties embracing bold and bright color schemes, such as neon colors and metallics. These vibrant colors will be used in everything from decorations to food and drinks, creating a fun and exciting atmosphere.
6- Creative Food and Drinks Finally, food and drinks will continue to be a key focus of parties this summer. From custom cocktails to gourmet bites and artisanal desserts, guests can expect to indulge in a range of creative and delicious food and drinks at parties throughout the year. Cupcakes are replacing the standard cake and candy buffets are still a popular favorite. Try swapping out traditional candies for something new!
