For anyone out there who has not yet hosted or been to a Eurovision Song Contest party – 2011 is the year. It is a must in everyone’s calendar. You do not need to love the contest, or the music or the voting – but a party to remember the night by will be more fun than you’d initially imagine.
Here is my list of essentials to make your party go with a swing:
The infamous scoreboard. We included all guests with a country but also left a space for a phone vote. There is nothing more entertaining than calling someone (another party, a friend, or as we did, my mum) to get their votes. True-Eurovision style). Put them on loud-speaker for extra effect!
Crazy guests willing to dress up and brings flags. Flags are a must!
A trophy for the winner. (Blue Peter would be proud).
Food to represent the countries particpating in the contest. Ideas here.
Dance moves… There’s nothing better than dressing just like the performer of that year.
Scoresheets (and guests who are really putting the effort into it).
A good imagination is always needed. Look at these countries. Can you guess which country they represent?
I would love to have a Eurovision party this year. But….. I’m going to the real thing! Look out for me in the crowd of 24,000 people!! Enjoy the show.
