5 Fun Party Items That Will Make Your Event Memorable

Posted On June 28, 2018

Parties aren’t what they used to be. Thanks to social media, we now know that there are over 1,000 themes for kids’ birthday parties. Seriously, who ever heard of a safari-chic birthday party before Pinterest? It’s not just birthday parties that have been taken to the next level. People are also coming up with creative ideas for baby showers, graduation parties and bridal showers too. With all of these imaginative party themes, how can you make your party stand out from the crowd? Here are 5 fun party items that will make your next celebration memorable.

1. Cotton Candy Machine

Are you having a carnival-themed birthday party? Delight your guests with cotton candy. Most people only have cotton candy once year at best, so this snack will be a welcome treat for party guests. Cotton candy is not just for kids. Eating the sweet snack will be a nostalgic treat for adult guests. We recommend renting a cotton candy machine instead of buying one. There are a more affordable than you think.

2. Ping Pong Table

Keep your guests entertained for hours on end with a ping-pong table. Play ping-pong at birthday parties and family get-togethers. With its simple rules, the game can be enjoyed by guests of all ages.

3. Snow Cone Machine

Another fun party item is a snow cone machine. It is perfect for birthdays, family reunions and holiday celebrations. Due to its compact size, snow cone machines are easy to set up in your backyard or a small space. We recommend giving your guests at least two flavors to choose from.

4. Cornhole

Get the party started with a game of cornhole. It is arguably one of the most popular outdoor games in the country. Even ESPN airs cornhole matches on their network. Capitalize on the game’s popularity by hosting a mini-cornhole tournament at your next birthday or barbecue. Reward the winner/team with a fun a prize. If you’re not ready to invest in cornhole, rent the boards from a party supplier.

5. Outdoor Misting Fan

Most people would not describe number five on our list as a “fun” party item. However, a misting fan is a “must” for any outdoor party during South Florida’s sweltering summers. Keep in mind that not all outdoor misting fans are created equal. We recommend getting a high-quality fan because some of the cheaper versions may leave your guests drenched instead of refreshed.

Renting fun party items are often the way to go. You can enjoy these items and then return them without having to deal with the cost, hassle and maintenance of owning them.
