What do you think about planning a different kind of party or picnic? Looking for THE new idea? The one your guests will remember for a long time : the Poke Party. Here comes a short list that will help you achieve the party of the century with a creative and healthy touch.
1 – GUESTS
Think about a spicy guest list : convier des gens hétéroclites laisse présumer un bon party. Who is the funny guy? Who is the slightly arrogant dude? Who is the princess? Will sparks fly between some? A « princess » and a « gino-camaro » are oposites that will for sure make your picnic interesting!
2 – SAVE THE DATE
Carefully select a date when you know your guests will be free to come. Let them know well in advance, write a short invitation and a teasing title.
3 – MUSIC
Build a killer playlist for the night with energic rythms that will gather your guests. No need to show off with some obscur artist nobody knows ;)
4 – REMINDER
Write a few days before the party to remind your guests of the event to come.
5 – DECORATIONS / MOOD
Your goal :
Set up the perfect scene for your poke party.
Code words :
Tablecloth, dishes, glasses, flowers, lighting, candles, straws, and some decorations.
6 – FLING
If you ask your guests to wear a white bow? A hat? Something light, that dosen't need them to prepare a lot or pay for a costume location, but that will add some fling for sure. Worst case scenario ... it's soooo Instagram!
7 – APPETISERS
It's the thing that will kick off the party and it has to take place soon after your guests arrive. And if you were to serve skewers in glasses? Cocktails are also a safe bet. Place side by side a gin bottle and some kombucha, lemonade, ice cubes, lime slices and everyone can make their own.
8 – SCENE
Plan your bowl bar : trays, serving utensils, forks and napkins.

10 – ON MEMORY LANE
The following day, send a picture to your guests. Maybe add a little cheesy quote reminding them a funny thing that happened during the night!
