Everything you need to throw the ultimate, insta-worthy pride party

Pride month calls for lots of celebration and with the help of Interior Decorator, Aly Velji, we're sharing our top tips for throwing the ultimate pride party! And best of all, these tips can be applied to any party all year round. 

CREATE AN INSTAGRAM-WORTHY ATMOSPHERE

If no one is snapping photos of a party for Instagram, did it even happen? Let's face it, having an aesthetically pleasing environment is cruicial for most successful parties. A great way to do this is by making use of balloons, preferably colourful ones to match the pride rainbow! By using different sized round balloons, you can create your very own art installation that will have everyone on your timeline wishing they were there!

HAVE THE PERFECT SEATING AREA

Having high top seating is a great way to enhance the dynamic of any space. It's the perfect way to create conversational areas where guests can set down their drinks and chat. While the actual seats of a seating are are cruicial, so is lighting and table accessories! Good lighting is everything and for an amazing party you'll want to pay attention to detail. Geometric lights are a great way to do this while also adding a glam vibe. When it comes to decorating tables, try to stay away from florals and ordinary decor. Celebrating pride month is all about celebrating uniqueness, so you'll want to choose vibrant and interesting accessories for centre pieces.

MAKE AN EPIC DANCE FLOOR

Every pride party needs a dance floor and it's arguably the most important detail! Even if you don't have the space or materials for an actual dance floor, it can actually be simple to create a makeshift dance floor. By using an area rug, you can seperate a space for dancing without it taking over other sections of your party. 

SET UP A BAR

Whether you're serving up mocktails or cocktails, having a bar at your party is a great opportunity to include even more of your theme. There are endless options when it comes to pride drinks and your guests will love this detailed touch! You can even pick up pride-themed bottles of your favourite drinks, like these rainbow Bud Light cans.
