Relax And Have A Party: 10 Ideas For Millennials

This is a guest contribution from writer Boom Rizal.

A huge population of Filipino millennials lives in Metro Manila where traffic is horrendous, public places are always crowded, and the entire capital region turns into a furnace in daytime. Going to work is a struggle for young professionals, most of whom are just trying to survive.

If you’re a millennial battling the daily hardships of city living, we salute you. You deserve all the comforts you can afford. Take a breather. Create a no-stress zone at home. Throw a party once in awhile.

Yes, dedicated taxpayer. Let down your hair and have fun with peers. With a little creativity, you can organize a hip event without breaking the bank (or your back). Here are unique tips on how to organize parties for millennials.

Beat the heat

Beat the heat

The record-breaking heat in Metro Manila can be blamed on a number of factors including pollution and overcrowding. Until the government and the private sector find the way to address these problems, you and I are left to our own devices. So how can you organize a party when people prefer to stay indoors whenever they can? Hold a night swimming party in your condo. Check out top-notch leisure amenities at La Verti for rent. Ditch the alcohol. Serve chilled fruit juices instead, and pump up the atmosphere with your summer playlist.

Natural high is the real deal

After a week of energy-sapping commute, the last thing you need is chemicals running amok in your system. You don’t need artificial elements to have fun. You’re a smart millennial. Your definition of fun is always natural. Enjoy a flow of adrenaline while competing with friends in a video game tournament. If your condo unit can’t accommodate all players, DMCI Homes has game rooms you can rent as your video game party venue. You can also livestream your event for friends who can’t join in.

No-brainer themed parties

Themed parties are fun. But who wants to spend hard-earned money on an intricate mardi gras costume? You can have a themed outdoor party without too much effort. Organize a Mexican-inspired get-together by the condo leisure pool, complete with nachos and mariachi music. You may also have a Hawaiian party at  Arista Place for rent. This Asian tropical themed condo community has a clubhouse for events.

Play hard without stressing your body

That work hard, party harder mantra is out. Hardworking millennials recognize the importance of a healthy lifestyle in pursuing career goals. If you need party games for the adults, try board games. Pop culture website Geek & Sundry recommends Blood Rage, Codenames, and XCOM: The Board Game. Serve chips and iced tea.

Organize a tribute party for graduates

This season, tens of thousands of millennials are graduating from college. Throw a simple dinner party for family and friends who successfully earned their degrees. Make significant celebrations, such as graduations, memorable by holding it under Manila’s beautiful evening skies. Know about the picnic grove / open lawn at Flair Towers for rent for your special events.

Install a DIY photobooth

The world applauds the millennials’ seemingly unlimited supply of creativity and energy. These explain why companies are aggressively enticing those born between the 1980s and early 2000s to join their teams. Use your creativity in coming up with unique party ideas. Consider installing your own photobooth. This is quite simple. You can print and mount a backdrop on a wall. Get a couple of head gears, wigs and other props. A photo booth is your answer on how to keep your guests entertained.

Have a fun speed dating event

The concept of speed dating, where people are matched at random, perfectly fits millennials. It’s fast-paced, spontaneous and fun. If you need dinner party ideas, consider organizing a speed dating event in your condo’s function hall or swimming pool. For a grander version of this event, which you can plan with friends, explore The Tent at Taguig City.

Go fresh with the refreshments

With the scorching weather, it’s a struggle to even think about going to public events. The prospects of socializing in this painfully hot season may appeal to teenagers, but not very much to millennials. Millennials, according to studies, have better lifestyle habits compared to other generations. When thinking of what to serve during parties, choose fresh and healthy foods. Lots of greens instead of grease. Why not have a Mongolian buffet dinner with fresh vegetables and yummy sauces?

Alcohol is out, fruit juices are in

Alcohol is out, fruit juices are in

Do you know that alcoholic drinks dehydrate the body? Drinking vodka on a hot weather, whether it’s morning or night, is risking extreme fatigue, muscle cramps and heat stroke. If you’re organizing a party this season, ditch the alcohol and go fruity instead. Serve watermelon shake or chilled orange juice. Go the extra mile by holding your get-together by the poolside. Cold fruit juice + swimming = the coolest summer party idea!

Bring out the millennial power: have a brainstorming party!

Bring out the millennial power: have a brainstorming party!

You know how usual parties go—pleasantries are exchanged, latest gossips are shared, food and drinks are passed around. However, this is the age of startups and young billionaires. You need to level-up. It may sound nerdy, but why not brainstorm on a project with friends? It doesn’t have to be as complicated as app development. You can explore the possibility of starting an online store or simply plan your next out-of-town trip. Gather your closest friends in your home, prepare cold drinks and let ideas flow.

The congestion in Metro Manila is draining people’s energy, resulting to reduced productivity and burnout. Skilled and hard working millennials are among the hard-hit victims of this serious public problem. It’s not surprising why an increasing number of Filipinos are leaving the country not only for better job opportunities but also for a better quality of life. If you start manifesting signs of burnout, take a time to relax. Call your family and friends and have a good time. Throw a party if you must!
