Tips To A Successful Karaoke Party
Regardless of whether you hold your party at Christmas or at another time, these following tips will ensure that your karaoke parties are the best that they can be.
Create Your Playlist Before The Party:
Whilst it’s great to be able to have “requests”, you still want to be prepared.
Creating the playlist before the party starts will ensure that you have a constant supply of music. There is nothing worse than having a karaoke party and having no music for half the time.
Also play all the songs through before hand to make sure that it all plays smoothly.
A great way to navigate the playlist would be to have the list of songs written down for everyone to see. Guests can then write their names next to the song that they wish to sing.
Then simply play the playlist and let the magic begin!
Set up the Karaoke Machine:
Ensure that your set up of the karaoke machine and microphones is all good to go BEFORE the party starts. This includes testing everything to make sure it works.
This way everyone can get into the spirit of things straight away without having to wait around for things to be coordinated.
You may wish to use your own karaoke machine, or hire one for the party.
Have Several Microphones:
It would be ideal to have up to 4 microphones available so guests can sing as small groups if they want to.
This will also help even the shy party guest become involved.
Have The Words Available:
If your karaoke set up doesn’t have the words to the songs, then ensure that you have a printed version of them.
People might “think” they know the words until it becomes time to sing!
This is easily avoided simply by having the lyrics available for guests to sing along to.
Consider The Location:
Take some time to think about where you will set up the karaoke. You want to ensure that this is not in a walk way with people tripping over wires etc.
Likewise it needs to be in a spot that is easily visible and other guests can sit and watch or join in and have a dance.
You may wish to decorate behind the karaoke “stage” with a party backdrop, or have disco balls or disco lights for some added fun.
Karaoke Party Food
The easiest food to serve at a Karaoke party would have to be finger food.
This will allow all the guests to help themselves when they want, and also matches the chilled vibe of the party.
Finger food will also enable a constant flow of music to occur rather than having to stop to eat dinner together.
There are lots of delicious treats that can be coordinated, and Christmas charceterie boards would also work wonderfully at this type of party.
Ensure that there is a variety of food for both the kids and the adults, as the singing will work up an appetite!
Themed Christmas Karaoke Party Ideas
To make your karaoke holiday party that little bit extra special, you might like to organise a themed party.
Whilst everyone is enjoying the karaoke party, this is also a great opportunity to coordinate some other Christmas activities.
You have the music playing, so why not enjoy it and have some extra fun. These following ideas would be easy to coordinate into a Christmas karaoke party.
Ugly Sweater Christmas Party:
Invite all guests to wear an ugly sweater to the karaoke party.
This is the best way to ensure that guests are already relaxed and expecting a fun time. No one expects you to be serious when wearing a Christmas ugly sweater!
Cookie Exchange Party:
Invite all your guests to bring a plate of cookies that can be swapped during the event.
Gingerbread House Making:
Not everyone loves to make gingerbread houses, but for those that do, this would be the perfect opportunity.
Have some ready made kits available, and when guests don’t want to dance or sing, they can create a gingerbread house.
If you love to get crafty, then you could set up an area where guests can make their own Christmas ornaments.
This only needs to be very simple, but is also a lot of fun.
Secret Santa Gift Exchange:
Either during the middle or at the end of the party, all guests could participate in a secret Santa gift exchange.
Request all party guests to bring a wrapped present to the party. Set a limit on the amount that can be spent to ensure all gifts are of a similar quality.
Give all the guests a name of who they are buying for, and ask for that name to be placed onto the gift. This is a nice way to have some added Christmas fun during the party.
If you are looking for a unique Christmas party idea, then a karaoke theme party could be the perfect thing for you.
With everyone celebrating with some delicious Christmas treats and belting out some awesome tunes on the karaoke, this kind of party will definitely spread the Christmas cheer.
