My cousin, best friend, and creative consultant for Pocket Full of Parties just held her 27th birthday party, inspired and designed by Pocket Full of Parties (although the business focuses on children, we cannot resist planning ANY great party!).
The theme was psychic readings/fortune telling, and the color scheme was purple, silver and gold. The best part of the party, of course, was the psychic who provided 30-minute readings to all interested party guests (and, let me tell you, based on Melissa's reading, this psychic was GOOD!!).
The party guests delighted over all of the little details: the amazing invite (designed by Melissa herself), a signature purple party cocktail (e-mail me for the recipe...it was a hit!), rooms illuminated by color-coordinated candles, an amazing selection of appetizers (fried ravioli being my favorite choice!), and the perfect sprinkling of purple desserts (lavender M & M's in purple bowls, a purple flowered ice cream cake, and brownies drizzled in purple frosting and presented in gold cupcake wrappers).
The mystical mood was enhanced by a combination of relaxing mood music (think yoga) and modern music with just the right flair (think Silversun Pickups, Muse, Metric, Incubus, Shiny Toy Guns, etc).
Additionally, guest entertainment and fortune-telling fun was enhanced by way of fortune cookies and Magic 8 Balls (so hip!). Also, a spiritual healer accompanied the psychic and kept the guests mesmerized between psychic readings.
This was one fabulous birthday party with a theme that tops my list of unique party ideas!
