If your mother has a love for all things French, Japanese, German, Mexican, Swedish, African or Balinese, surprise her this mother’s day with a vacation-themed party. Turn your home into her dream vacation and invite friends and relatives for a real “destination” party.
Start with making your home look as much like her dream holiday villa as possible. Table cloths are a great way to change things up a bit. Red checked tablecloths can evoke Italy, colourful Mexican designs and hats could remind her of Latin America. Flowers, lights, printed materials, anything and everything that you think will help you to evoke the right mood in your home.
Even if you aren’t able to get all the decorations perfect, playing the right music immediately gets people into the right mood. Play music from the country which you are setting the theme for. If you subscribe to a music streaming service like Spotify you can always search for playlists which other people have compiled for the mood and destination which you are looking for.
In Singapore, this really isn’t too difficult. If you enjoy cooking, you should be able to buy just about any ingredient you need to replicate most recipes. If you aren’t a cook, then you can always order a meal from an authentic restaurant and bring it home. Arrange it on pretty platters and you’re ready to go!
Make your guests part of the “scenery”. Tell everyone to dress up in costume and once your home is filled with everyone, you’ll not only have the décor and music, but you’ll also have the “actors” as well.
Every country has special drinks associated with their culture. Prepare a mix of alcoholic and non-alcoholic variations. Get a friend to relative to take on the role of bartender and the party will get started sooner than you know!
