Preparing for Earth Hour
It’s time to count down to the biggest Earth-themed party celebrated the world over. Once a year, lights go off all around the globe for 60 minutes to celebrate Earth Hour. In the next few days, as part of your event countdown to Earth Hour, here are a few things you can prepare for your rockin’ party.
5 Must-Haves for a Rockin’ Earth Hour Party
1. Friends: The More, The Many-er!
You can’t have a party all by yourself, now can you? Regardless of what you have prepared, it’s always best to have as many friends as possible with whom to celebrate this momentous and exciting event. Think of it also as getting more people involved in the cause, which is to spend that one hour in the dark to raise awareness about conservation practices. How bow dah, right?!
More friends means more laughter, more fun, and even more reasons to want to save the world. Besides, Earth Hour gives you a legit reason to party with your friends, as it’s technically for a good cause.
2. In-the-dark Games
It’s already fun just as a party, but raise the excitement with a unique twist to games for the night. You can have a relay race using glow-in-the-dark balls or eggs. You can play blindfolded twister where the players are coached by spectators. You can also enjoy the newspaper or statue dance game in the dark with friends.
Enjoys loads of fun limited only by the light and your own imagination. All for the sake of fun and the Earth.
3. Live Music
It can’t be an Earth Hour party without live music. If you have the budget for it, or are an eventure organizer, then you’ll probably have some famous musicians in your tow that you can invite to share their talent for the sake of the planet. You’d have to pay them, of course. They’re still technically working that night.
Of course, if your budget’s (more than just a little) tight, then just gather around while one (or more) of your friends play an acoustic set.
4. Wide Open Space
How better to celebrate Earth Hour than to be with the elements. Though your back yard is actually good enough, it would be nice to be in a wide open space (like a field or a park) so that you maximize the view of the stars. When the lights go off all around, the stars become more visible and spectacular. It adds a magical feel to your party. Can you say La La Land?
5. Booze and Bites
For your rockin’ in-the-dark celebration of Earth Hour, it would be best to provide pica-pica or bite-sized snacks throughout the night. Think of it as an indefinitely long cocktail. Imagine trying to feed your guests a whole meal in the dark? Spaghetti smears your sofa, while drinks get toppled as guests trip over anything and anyone.
Swingin’ shots and firewater are a staple to any rockin’ event. So here’s one for the Earth and a shot for all, as we celebrate Earth Hour. Cheers!
Over the next few days, prep for the biggest annual in-the-dark party and event for the world!
