Yeah, selfie parties are a thing! They’re big in Japan. In fact, we heard that among some high-end Tokyo fashion types, a selfie party is cooler than karaoke. So, 2017 is here and it’s time to plan your ultimate selfie party.
The best selfie party will involve at least a few friends, but if that’s not possible, you can throw a solo selfie party. No worries — it’s like a tea party only with selfies, lots and lots of selfies.
Here’s what you need to know…
Make A List 🗒
The most important aspect of a themed selfie party is the preparations and the list that includes everything you need to make the selfie party happen.
In other words, this list can make or break your party — so, make it before you go shopping for supplies unless you want to realize you forgot a bunch of stuff an hour before the party.
Draft An Eclectic Guest List 👯
Since this is a selfie party, people will be the highlight of it. You want your guests to have fun by taking pictures with interesting people, poses, and maybe even a few cats so that they can post them on the SelfieYo Chat App for iPhone or Android.
Think of all the cool people you know or people who you know your guests will love to interact with at the party.
Even if you’re not that close to someone, invite them — remind them that selfie parties are big in Japan — and if they have two cents, they’ll want in.
The more the merrier. Also, invite people at least 8 days before the party is scheduled so that they have plenty of time to clear their schedule for this all important event.
Where The Selfies At, Yo 😘
This is where you and your guests will be taking the pictures — beaucoup de photos. You can make your own DIY SelfieYo station or you can decorate a wall that will become the background of every picture. Since it’s a party, you have to make sure that its super attractive and funky looking.
Another trending thing is photo booths. If you have money to spare, you can always hire one on rent and have it at your party.
Booth pictures like these remind people of that amazing party that they went to. Just be clear on the selfie booth kissing policy. Things could get a little spicy.
Selfie Snapping Food 🍌🍒
Since it’s a selfie party, you don’t want to serve anything that makes people feel bloated, might force a bathroom run, or, would otherwise dissuade them from wanting to take full body selfies.
Avoid food that is likely to make a mess when you eat it. Keep it light, but also filling since everyone would be expecting to have something to eat at the party. An idea is to focus on smoothies or a tropical, fruity spread that has a burst of flavor to it.
Maybe some chips, cream cheese, tacos and beer, too. Can’t forget that!
Also, if you don’t want to put on a heavy menu, time your party between meal times so that you can join a bunch of people after the party to catch a bite to eat and you don’t have to be bothered about snacks at your own place.
Last but not least, don’t forget to keep your SelfieYo app updated. We’re making new updates on the iPhone chat app and Android chat app so you can keep posting and innovating in your selfie game throughout 2017.
We ❤️ you!
