If you’re planning a birthday party in Longhoughton, the Longhoughton Community Centre is a great venue to host it. With a spacious hall, ample parking, and a central location, it’s an ideal spot for a fun and festive celebration. But how do you make sure your party is a hit? Here are 5 ideas to keep your guests entertained:

1. DIY Photo Booth: Set up a DIY photo booth area with props and backdrops. Create a themed backdrop or just use colourful decorations and hang them up as a fun backdrop. Encourage guests to take photos with fun props like hats, glasses, or even feather boas. This is a great way to capture memories of the party, and it’s also a fun activity for guests to do throughout the event.

2. Hire a Caterer: Instead of spending hours preparing food for the party, consider hiring a caterer to provide delicious food and drinks for your guests. Many caterers offer a variety of menus to fit different dietary requirements, so you can find one that fits your needs and budget.

3. Minute-to-Win-It Games: Minute-to-Win-It games are quick, easy, and fun challenges that can be played in a small space. Examples include games like “Face the Cookie” (where players have to move a biscuit from their forehead to their mouth without using their hands) or “Junk in the Trunk” (where players have to bounce ping pong balls out of a tissue box attached to their backside). These games are a great way to keep the energy up and get everyone laughing.

4. Karaoke: Karaoke is a classic party activity that never goes out of style. Hire a karaoke machine or use a phone app like Smule, and use our stage for guests to perform their favourite songs. You can also have a contest with prizes for the best performance.

5. Scavenger Hunt: A scavenger hunt can be a fun and engaging way to keep guests entertained and active. You can create clues that lead guests to different areas of the community centre or surrounding area, and hide small prizes along the way. This can be a great way to get everyone involved and working together, and also adds an element of excitement to the party.

No matter which ideas you choose, the key to a successful party is to make sure your guests are having fun and feeling included. Keep the energy up, provide plenty of food and drinks, and don’t forget to snap lots of photos to capture the memories.
