I typically want party ideas which are unique and out of the box. I learned that Youtube is without a doubt a terrific resource for this type of ideas. All you need to do is browse through Youtube and perform a search for "event tips" and you will see hours worth of video clips with a lot of very good points. The trouble is, who exactly has enough time to watch them all? Thus I am on a regular quest to collect some notes in order to save me and also perhaps other people some time.
Here is a great video with some insane party ideas - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wUlJSgYGmFw
I hope you see some good ideas for your future celebration on Youtube!
