Ideas For Organising a Eurovision Party

April 16, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 248

May is approaching fast and that can only mean one thing... It's almost time for Eurovision! Though many people look down on the contest, calling it an embarrassment to Europe and its singer and songwriter community, it can be grounds for a really fun evening with friends if not taken too seriously. Over the years it's become really popular to honour the annual event that used to be accompanied by Terry Wogan's amusing commentary in the UK with a party. It's become the subject of games and other activities. So why not go all out this year and host a night to remember? Here are a few ideas for how you could celebrate the occasion in as cheesy a way as possible.

Game Ideas

Fans of Eurovision have come up with games that you can play before and during the show. One option is to place bets on whoever you think is going to win the show. You don't necessarily have to bet for money. Come up with more interesting prizes such as a Eurovision greatest hits CD or alike. Or let the winner set challenges to others, such as making them belt out a karaoke version of the winning song.

There are also drinking games you can play while watching the event. These revolve around the lyrics of the songs and require you to take a sip of your drink each time a certain word or topic is mentioned. Common favourites include "love", "world peace" and "friendship" that seem to be subjects covered repetitively every single year. Make sure you're not drinking anything too strong as otherwise things could get messy fast...

Costume Party

An obvious idea for a Eurovision night is to wear costumes representing the different nationalities taking part in the contest. If you've got an international group of friends, ask them to come in their national costumes. Alternatively, dress up to represent your favourite act of the year or the act you think is going to win.

Garden Party

In May the weather should be good enough for you to be able to host an outdoor party. You just might want to warn your neighbours though! They should be as prepared as you are for a night of loud, often dancy music with terrible lyrics.

If you can get your hands on a big projector and screen, this could be the best way of watching the show outdoors. In this case make sure you have electricity on hand to power the equipment. If your cables and extension leads don't stretch far enough into the garden, look into power generator rental. With the screen up and running, make sure you and your guests have comfy seats, blankets to snuggle up in if it gets chilly and lots of food and drinks to keep you going until the end of the night.
