Farewell Party-Movie Premiere (cont)

This requires quite a lot of preparation. But, major effort goes into producing a movie for this party. You can either produce a slide show with all the memorable pictures, or produce a video with your personal message.

(Tip:Use movie maker to make a simple video. Line up all the pictures, and put in a farewell song. )


Have a long red carpet runner leading to your party area.
( 7pounds)

The Party Area will have a food section and a movie viewing section (where your TV is!)

Have ceiling decorations, with film and stars hanging down.

Have a cocktail party with:

1) hors d'oeuvres/Finger Food
Buffalo Wings
Mini Pizzas

2) Alcoholic or non-alcoholic drinks
Alcoholic: Cocktails, red, white wine
Non-alcoholic: Mocktails, punch, sparkling grape juice

Farewell Party Ideas- Movie Premiere

Theme: Movie Premiere

This is quite a cool and fun idea. All the guests are invited for a movie premiere. But, the person/people who are going away will be the VIP for the night. So, invite the guests half an hour earlier, and the VIP will come when everybody has arrived.

Once the VIP arrives, they are welcomed by a sight of a red carpet leading to the party area with all the guests already in it. They walked in with camera flashing, (a few designated cameramen), and once they reach the party area, the party officially starts!!

Now, on how to execute

Farewell Party Ideas- Fly Away and Goodbye!!

This is a basically a very simple theme-balloons!!
However, it's important to get the ones filled with helium.

The idea is to get bright colour balloons, and either:

1) First, write in big bold letters: GOODBYE!! and then get all the guests at the farewell party to write their names on the balloons. (for eg: 10 small names on a balloon)


2) Write goodbye in every language you can find on different colour balloons.
Goodbye - English
Salam - Arabic
Ciao - Italian
AufWiedersehen - German
Au Revoir - French
Hejdå - Swedish
Aloha - Hawaiian
Sampai Jumpa - Indonesian
Adios - Spanish
Paalam - Filipino
Zai Jian - Chinese, Mandarin

Tie each one with a knot and attach ribbons to make it more attractive.

Let it float up to the ceiling, if you have many.
Or you can decorate it at certain corners of the room.
Or you can even use it as centerpiece for your buffet table.

At the end of the party, gather everybody to the porch. Give them except the VIPs a balloon.
At the count of three, let go the balloons into the air, to signify the final farewell!!
(Note: The balloons will go up and finally pop and burst into small pieces!! It's quite a sight!!
Remember to detach the ribbons before you hand the balloons to the guests to let go. This is to reduce litter when the balloons bursts)

Movie Night Party 2- The Incredibles

"The Incredibles" is such a good movie, it's jam packed with action and at the same time leaves you with a warm fuzzy feeling. We chose this movie for the weekend, and also for the kids so that that can enjoy themselves.

The theme of the party follows the movie dominant colour: BRIGHT ORANGE!!

Instead of the usual pizza party, just to make it a little special:

Everybody gets a mask just like what the incredibles family have. (You can see from the picture above that there are a few shapes.)
