Are you in love with chocolate and want to throw a party that revolves around chocolate? Do you want to surprise your child for his birthday by throwing a spectacular chocolate themed party? This article will make sure that you know all the things you need to do to throw an unforgettable chocolate-themed party!
There are two kinds of chocolate parties. First one is a party that has chocolates, and the second one is a party that is all chocolate! If you are throwing a real chocolate-themed party, you want your guests to know that you are serious. Instead of just mailing them or sending out simple invitation cards, send customized invitation in the form of a chocolate bar. And don’t worry about the cost – you can create such invitations on your own, or you can get them without spending too much.
# 2. Chocolate Dress Code
Why is the chocolate invitation bar important? It shows that you mean business. Now, tell everyone that they need to be dressed in traditional chocolate colors: cream, dark brown or light brown.
# 3. Chocolate Décor
Your chocolate party needs to feel like a chocolate party. Playing Charlie and the Chocolate Factory on the TV may be good enough for some, but your party is special! One of the best things about chocolate is that it is pretty easy to mold into different shapes. In addition to chocolate colored curtains and cushions, you can have small castles, people and other objects made from chocolate. You may not want to convert your whole room or house into a chocolate palace, but using chocolate décor as a centerpiece is a must.
# 4. Chocolate Fountain and Drinks
One of the essentials in every small and big chocolate party is a chocolate fountain. You must have seen one of such fountains at wedding or other parties. You can easily find a local company or chocolate artist to set up such a fountain. Apart from the chocolate fountain, drinks prepared from different kinds of chocolates are also an essential at a chocolate-themed party.
# 5. Healthy Chocolate Dipping
While some refuse to accept that there can be anything like ‘too much chocolate,’ you don’t want the kids to overload on chocolate and fall sick. In order to make your food offerings healthy, you can offer fresh fruits and dry fruits on a stick as dipping items! In addition to being healthy, this will also add the much needed variety to your food offerings.
# 6. Play Chocolate Games
While you don’t want to come across as a controlling host, it is considered a good idea to have some organized activities during the party. You can play games and hold a quiz about chocolate, or ask the contestants to close their eyes and name a chocolate simply by tasting it. Or, you can add a chocolate twist to any of your favorite games and make it fit your theme. If you have enough people who like cooking, you can also organize contest for cooking innovative chocolate items!
# 7. Turn on Choco Music!
If you follow the above points, the participants will be smelling, seeing and touching chocolate – they will be immersed in a world made from chocolate. You can make it perfect by playing music about chocolate. Some popular songs that jump to the mind are: Chocolate Girl (Animal Collective), Chocolate Cake for Breakfast (Bill Cosby), Chocolate Candy (Art Paul) and Pink Chocolate Cookies (Candy Can).
