Rather than looking for new and exciting ways to blow the roof off your next party, why not take your bash to a whole dimension by hosting it underneath the sparkling night sky? Roof parties (when the weather allows for it), can be memorable ways to generate incredible experiences, make new friends, and make the most of some pretty awesome themes.
For people who like a party with a view, a stunning soiree can be so much more from an elevated location like a roof or a balcony – all you need to do is make sure that you’re doing everything right.
1. Prepare and Get Permission
Before you can throw a rooftop party, you’re going to need to get permission from the building owner, or landlord. If you own the property – then there’s no problem, otherwise, you need to ensure that you’re not breaking any codes or rules. What’s more, you’ll have to ensure that there are walls or railings everywhere to keep your guests safe when they start sipping on cocktails.
2. Think of a Theme
Just like any other party, a good rooftop bash can be excellent if you choose the right theme. Decide what you’re celebrating, and find a way to add something special to the standard set up. For instance, are you networking with new business associates, or getting the most out of an incredible birthday?
Once you’ve figured out the theme and the drive behind your party, you’ll be able to start stocking up on appropriate food and drink to last you and your guests throughout the night.
3. Organize Your Space
Once you’ve figured out your theme, food, and other essential details, you’ll need to clean and organize the rooftop space so there’s plenty of room to party – and figure out how you’re going to decorate.
As you glance around your space, think about what kind of furniture you’re going to need (if any), and where it should be placed. The essential items might include:
- Sit-down dinner spaces
- Chairs and sofas
- Side tables
- Cocktail tables
- Plenty of lighting and lamps (to keep your evening sparkling)
- Canopies and umbrellas
- Extension cords for music, and electronics
4. Transform Your Roof
With the plans out of the way, you can transform your rooftop into the perfect outdoor bash with coordinated colors, stunning scenery, and plenty of bright lights to keep the energy levels high. Get your party started!
