Trend Alert: Video Game Truck Parties!
Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about the hot new trend — Video Game Truck Parties! Kids have been asking for video game parties for quite some time now but NOW the new trend is having these Video Game Trucks come to your party where you and your guests can play video games together inside the truck with laser light shows and stereo sound creating the ultimate video game party experience.

At the forefront of this trend is Games 2 U who specialize in bringing the mobile entertainment to your party. They make it super easy to host the ultimate video game party experience as they have outdoor activities that can complement your favorite video game theme. Check out how I used this trend to create the ultimate Army video game themed party experience.

Trend Alert: Tween Party Bars (Kittylicious Pink Cat Birthday)

Tonya Coleman here from Soireé Event Design, and I’m back with the “Trend Alert” where I share with you some of the hottest trends in party planning! Today’s guest post is all about setting up self serve Tween Party Bars a fabulous addition to any Tween party!

Throwing a party for a tween is hard! They are at that age (between 10-12) where they are in between being a young kid and a teenager.  They don’t want “baby” themed parties anymore, they want a bit of independence and they definitely don’t want mom hanging around during the party.  So what do you do?

Set up Tween Party Bars which are self-serve activity stations that the kids can do and enjoy on their own. To pull this off in true Tween Scene style, make sure to create a party space transformed just for them in a not-so-kiddy theme.  The look and feel should be grown up, yet age-appropriate and trust me, your kid and her friends will think you are a total rock star!
