Brazilian carnival-style party
How to organize a theme party so that guests and the birthday boy will definitely remember it? A cool idea is to arrange a real Brazilian carnival right in the loft! It is better to warn guests about the theme in advance so that they have time to prepare bright costumes. Girls can come to the party in multi-colored swimsuits decorated with feathers, rhinestones and sequins – they are all their own in the loft, and there will definitely not be sidelong glances. A suitable outfit for guys is swimming shorts, a Hawaiian shirt and sandals.
Pay special attention to music – it should be dynamic and incendiary, use exclusive tracks for the most atmospheric parties, created by the best DJs especially for Bash Today.
During the party, it would be great to have a master class in lambada or samba.
The Brazilian party menu includes tacos, tartlets, fruits and vegetables. For dessert, you can order a bright cake with an edible carnival mask in the pastry shop. According to tradition, a figurine of a child god is usually hidden inside the cake. The one who finds it in his piece will have good luck all year!
Goth Party is an easy way to throw a classy party. The dress code for guests is extremely simple – black, leather, chains, massive shoes. Girls can make up their lips with purple or scarlet lipstick, line their eyes with black pencil or make vamp-style makeup.
It is better to darken the room – you can choose a loft with blackout curtains for your party. Arrange candles throughout the room, decorate the location with skulls, cobwebs, black and red helium balloons. You can add dry ice to the interior, which will create a mysterious “fog”. It’s great if there is a smoke machine on the site of your choice.
To decorate the table, you will need black satin textiles, crystal wine glasses, elegant cutlery, dark ribbons and red roses. Treat your friends to marmalade in the form of eyes, snakes and frogs, “bloody” muffins with raspberry jam. Pour red wine or a Bloody Mary cocktail into glasses.
Organize a tarot card reading or a mystical quest to entertain your guests.
India Style Party
If you’re thinking about throwing a mehendi party, it’s a great idea to throw a party that’s all about Indian culture.
To decorate the venue, you will need garlands of natural or artificial flowers, incense, aromatic oils, multi-colored fabrics with traditional patterns, pillows with tassels and fringes, figures of elephants and monkeys. You can print images of Ganesha – a cheerful god in the form of a half-elephant-half-human.
An invited master can decorate the hands of guests with mehendi, another option is to buy special henna in a needlework store and try to paint the palms with patterns yourself.
India is also famous for its serials and dances. To have a fun party, prepare some episodes with traditional shootouts, escapes and dances – let the participants act out these skits in teams and have a good laugh!
Invite your guests to taste the national dishes of Indian cuisine – chicken curry, fluffy flatbread, tea with milk and spices and halva. You can treat your friends to a hookah, because it was in India that the culture of smoking was born.
We’ve curated a variety of party venue styles to make it easier for you to find the perfect one.
Are you wondering how to organize a party full of secrets and mysteries? Throw a James Bond-style spy party! Organize an interesting detective quest — you can order it from professionals or prepare it yourself. Show your imagination – “steal” one of your friends so that others can find him. Leave clues in the corners of the loft in advance, quietly pass the secret codes to each of the guests. Let the dress code be official: business suits for men and elegant black dresses for girls. All guests can be given hats and dark glasses, as well as toy guns.
Treats at a spy party can be anything, the main thing is to decorate the table in style. Champagne pyramids, a chocolate fountain, bar catering – all this will make the holiday elegant and memorable.
Greek Style Party
If you’re choosing which style to throw your party in, a “journey” to Greece is a bright idea. It is very easy to find clothes for such a holiday – light beach tunics or loose cotton shirts are suitable for girls, and guys can build themselves a tunic from several meters of white fabric, fastening its ends on the back with pins.
To decorate the room, you can find plaster busts – they are sold in needlework stores. Also great are posters depicting ancient gods, old vases and lamps, candles and flowers.
The menu for a Greek party is easy to compose – prepare a Greek salad, canapés with cheese, olives and tomatoes, serve seafood in a lemon dressing as a hot dish. The main drink of the evening will be red and white wine.
Awaken the spirit of competition among guests, organize sports competitions – your own Olympic Games with laurel wreaths for the winners. The evening can end with a friendly sirtaki dance, this national Greek dance can be performed by everyone after watching any video on YouTube.
Around the World Party
This is the perfect idea for a surprise birthday party for an avid traveler. Guests will be able to visit different parts of the world and learn the traditions of different countries without leaving the walls of the loft. Choose 3-5 states that the birthday boy likes and organize several thematic zones. Let each reflect the culture and traditions of the chosen people, their music, history, clothes and hobbies. You can arrange a quiz, during which guests will learn interesting facts about the life of other countries, and also come up with tasks in the forfeit format, for example, dance the Argentinean tango or play the African drum.
Buffet catering will be an excellent solution for treating guests – order dishes from various cuisines of the world and decorate each table in the appropriate style.
The Vampire Diaries Party
What kind of birthday party would you throw for a Vampire Diaries fan? Most likely, he will be pleased with the holiday in the style of “vamp”!
Loft can be decorated with posters with the characters of the series, artificial web and bat figures.
The main colors of the party will be black and red. However, it is not necessary to wear special costumes – all the characters of the series looked like ordinary schoolchildren. But you will definitely need makeup – apply a lot of light powder to make your face porcelain-pale. You can draw red streaks near the eyes, which appeared on the characters when they were angry. The main attribute is fake fangs, you can buy them in the prank shop.
Treat your friends with “blood” – it will be especially cool to pour red wine and tomato juice into donor bags. If the budget does not allow, you can pour red cocktails into glass alcohol bottles and stick labels on them with different blood types and Rh factors.
During the party, each guest can be given a vampire ring like those that protected the heroes of the series from the sun’s rays.

Flower Party Style Birthday Party
If you’re wondering how to throw a party for a girl, a delicate flower party is a great idea.
Pay special attention to the design of the room – it is better to invite a professional florist to such an event. He will decorate the site with flowers and create the atmosphere of a spring garden right within the walls of the loft.
The birthday girl can dress up in a puffy dress or skirt in a bright color, a headband with flowers will become a beautiful accessory. Guests can be presented with bracelets with silk roses.
Decorate a table or candy bar with vases with rose petals. It is better to make treats light and colorful, offer guests desserts with icing flowers, fruits, berries, fresh juices and smoothies.
A master class on floristry will perfectly fit into the style of the holiday — an experienced presenter will teach participants how to create flower arrangements in just 1-2 hours.
Monsters on Vacation Party
A cartoon about funny and clumsy monsters that kids and adults love – use this idea to throw a fun party. It is important that before the holiday, parents also watch at least one part of the cartoon, then it will be much easier to bring it to life. Invite the birthday boy and guests to choose images of different heroes – Dracula and his daughter, Frankenstein, the Egyptian Mummy, the Skeleton and Quasimodo will gather for your holiday.
Turn the loft into the Transylvania Hotel for one evening: black and purple colors and silvery details – stars, candlesticks – are suitable for decoration. You will also need figures of skeletons and spiders, black balloons and artificial web.
The festive table can be covered with a black tablecloth, and elegant cutlery can be placed on it. Decorate the candy bar with candles and scary cupcakes with vampire fangs and bats.
There will be no problems with the music for the party – the cartoon has a lot of moving soundtracks, to which children will happily arrange their own disco. You can order a neon show – the guys will be delighted with the luminous figures that appear in complete darkness.
Nautical themed kids party
Any time of the year there is a way to get your child in the summer mood – for this you can arrange a nautical party! To design a loft, use not only all shades of blue, but also red, white colors. The room can be decorated with ropes and fishing nets, figurines of ships and lighthouses, steering wheels and anchors. Hang a lifebuoy on the wall, and put glass jars with sand and shells on the festive table. Inflatable flamingos and a donut-shaped swim ring will be cool elements of the photo zone.
Dress the birthday boy in a captain’s cap, give him and the guests vests. To entertain the kids, arrange a sand painting workshop for them. From mobile competitions, treasure hunting and tug-of-war will fit perfectly into the theme.
The holiday menu includes fish, salads with seafood, caviar tartlets and cupcakes with figures of underwater inhabitants. You can invite a bartender who will prepare colorful non-alcoholic cocktails for guests.
Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Party
The boys are sure to be excited to participate in such a party!
Before organizing the holiday, it is important for parents to watch a couple of episodes so as not to confuse the Turtles and their features.
Ask the birthday boy’s friends to come in brown or beige pants and green T-shirts. Prepare red, purple, orange, and blue headbands for guests, as well as toy swords, nunchucks, tridents, and bo poles (sets are sold in toy stores).
Turn your loft into a turtle hideout with paper garlands, themed posters, and life-size puppets.
The main treat of the evening is pizza! Turtles love anchovy pizza, but it’s better not to risk it and order different toppings so that everyone can find something to their liking.
Candy bar can be divided into 4 color zones: red, purple, orange and blue. In each place cupcakes, lollipops, marmalades of a certain shade. Sweet drinks can also be 4 colors, for example, cranberry and blackcurrant juice, orange juice and green tarragon.
Entertainment for fidgets should be as active as possible – organize a quest to “save the city”, fight with artificial swords, contests for accuracy, dexterity and speed.
Disney themed party
If your child loves Disney cartoons, they will love the idea of having a Disney themed loft party. The theme of the holiday is suitable not only for girls, but also for boys – invite guests to come up with a cool image in advance. Girls can become Belle or Aurora for the evening, and guys can become Mickey Mouse, Olaf from Frozen or Fox from Zootopia.
You can print posters from Disney cartoons, garlands with flags depicting heroes, tablecloths and tableware with princesses to decorate the room. A fabulous atmosphere will be created by floral decorations and helium balloons of various colors. The photo zone can be decorated with soft toys of the characters, the children will definitely be delighted to be photographed with them. Place caramel apples from Snow White, edible roses from Belle and oriental baklava from Jasmine on the table.
Pink Party Style
Pink Party is a cool idea to throw a nice party without spending a lot of money. The dress code is extremely simple – invite friends dressed in all shades of pink and white. Yes, yes, and boys too!
The choice of decorations is huge: you can easily find pink garlands, lush tablecloths and disposable dishes. So that the design is not monotonous, we advise you to dilute it with silver details (candlesticks, trays, balls) – you get a really cool combination!
Book a themed candy bar with fabulous cupcakes, cake pops and lollipops. Pink macaroons, delicate jelly and smoothies will also appeal to kids. Milkshakes with marshmallows and marshmallows will become a magical decoration – you can order a master class during which the guys, under the guidance of the presenter, will prepare amazing sweet drinks for themselves.
Arabian Night Party
Arabian Night Party is an opportunity to give your child a real oriental fairy tale for their birthday. For inspiration, you can watch movies and cartoons about Aladdin and Princess Jasmine, reread fairy tales from the collection “1000 and 1 Nights”.
To decorate the area, you will need an oriental carpet – lay it out in the very center of the room. Decorate furniture with velvet capes, satin cushions with fringe and tassels.
Girls can dress up in silk costumes of oriental beauties, tunics and headbands embroidered with coins, turbans and bloomers will be useful for boys. Some of the guests can choose the image of Genie or Ali Baba.
To create a mysterious atmosphere of the East, turn on the aroma lamp or set fire to incense, put on a playlist of Arabic music.
The holiday menu includes oriental pilaf, kebabs, a lot of vegetable salads, halva, baklava and nuts for dessert.
Fidgets will be happy with mobile activities: invite them to participate in the search for a magic lamp, a battle with toy swords or a belly dance master class. After the holiday, each guest can be presented with oriental bracelets as a keepsake.
Choose the theme you like and have the coolest and most fun parties!
🏡 Don’t leave the room: 15 photo ideas at home
Content of article
While you are at home, you can indulge in the pleasure of taking beautiful photos. You can take amazing photos without any equipment on a regular phone. In my photography school – Alexander Slyadnev’s school of photography – I always repeat that the idea is the main thing in photography. I am happy to share with you simple but spectacular ideas for a photo. Specially selected ideas so that you do not need to leave your home anywhere. The maximum you need to order a few kilograms of flour in the online store (later you will understand why).
15 photo ideas at home
The play of light and shadow
See your room at a magical time: within the first hour after dawn or one hour before sunset. You will see what a beautiful, soft light this time is. What intense shadows! Use the play of light and shadow for your photos. Any props will do: curtains, flowers, a hat, paper snowflakes (suddenly you haven’t removed the New Year’s decor yet), even your cat.
Food photography with unusual props
Try to combine the incongruous to get a really unusual photo. Beautifully set the table, light candles, rub plates and cutlery to a shine. Remove food first. Even regular fried potatoes, whatever! Then let yourself be fooled. For example, pour a poisonous blue mouthwash into a beautiful glass, and put something inedible on a plate too. At least soap. Go ahead. The crazier the better. Enjoy!
Photo with flour flakes
Here I remember one of my photos – a distraught housewife. By the way, the history of the creation of the photo can be read here . So, each of us has a pack of flour at home. Perhaps for a spectacular and crazy photo you need a little more than a couple of kilograms. But the result will be worth it. Come up with your own image, shout plenty, throw flour up. You can ask your family to throw flour at you. Both entertainment and photography. You can set the camera on your phone to a timer if you shoot alone.
Photo in a bathroom full of water
Here, too, you can let your imagination run wild. Dissolve a fragrant bomb in the bath, you can add chamomile flowers or any flowers you like. Milk is also suitable: some a couple of liters of milk and you can take an unusual photo in a milk bath. And spa treatments, and an idea for a photo. Thanks can be written in the comments.
Photo against a plain wall
The simplest idea for a photo at home, but one of the most effective. Put on contrasting clothes and experiment.
Dance in the frame
Seriously, turn on your favorite music, set the camera on your phone to a timer, put on a loose white shirt and dance around. Yes, you have to dance properly in order to get a masterpiece out of dozens of frames. But we’re not in a hurry, are we?
Use for a photo of a cat (a dog, guinea pig, rabbit is suitable)
No need to torture the animal, but you can still create a beautiful frame with a sleeping fluffy lump. Beautiful textiles, pillows, a kitten curled up in a ball – a classic Instagram photo that never gets old.
Photos with unusual objects
Raid the closet, mezzanine, balcony (if there is something to profit from). You will be surprised, but a cool shot can be made with a regular rotary phone, for example. Dig into your deposits of the past, there is definitely something interesting there.
Photos with old pictures from your childhood
Being at home is a great excuse to get an album of old photos. You can make a flatlay composition with some important photo for you. And write a story related to her under your photos on Instagram. Here’s a topic for an interesting post on Instagram.
For beautiful water photos you will need our magic light (one hour after sunrise and one hour before sunset). Find a beautiful glass vase, at worst, a three-liter bottle of grandmother’s pickles. It is important to wash the dishes, rub dry, and then fill with clean water. You can use boiling water or ice. Try it, beautiful macro shots are provided to you.
For example, in this picture of me there is glass, water drops and a lot of M&M’s. And what is the result)
Photos of today’s home look
Show off your Mickey Mouse pajamas and your favorite slippers. Being at home is not a reason to refuse photos of your favorite clothes. Or maybe you like to wear an office suit at home during working hours? Then you can take a funny picture of yourself in a cozy home environment sitting in a strict office look. And under the arm a cat, where without it.
Photo with a garland
So what if the New Year has passed. On Instagram, for example, photos with New Year’s garlands are an eternal trend in all seasons. They are put in vases, laid out on beautiful bed linen, hung from the ceiling or even on their heads (whoever is in what much). And you try to use a garland in some unusual way. Don’t be afraid of your imagination.
Photographs with books
Every house has a large or small library. Books can be laid out in a beautiful composition. You can just take a selfie with your favorite book in the part of the room where you usually read it. Don’t forget beautiful light.
Photograph unusual makeup
Yes, Halloween is also behind us. But films about the end of the world and zombies have become more popular. Do a cheeky zombie makeover, for example. And an aggressive photo. Post it on Instagram on Friday night (moo-ha-ha)
Photographs with the effect of “flight”
Taking such a photo is quite simple: you need to cover the floor in the room with a sheet or any other dense, plain white fabric, then spread out various objects and lie down on the floor yourself. If you scatter your hair “in the wind” and play “flight” with your face, you get a funny picture. Important: you will have to take pictures strictly from above. You need an assistant with long arms on a stable stool or with a selfie stick in your hands.
