Remember when Survivor was the biggest thing on television? It seems you couldn't go anywhere without hearing about the latest development. The show is still on, though it's not the cultural phenomenon that it once was. However, that doesn't mean the show hasn't given some great party ideas! That's right - a Survivor party could be just what you're looking for to give your next birthday bash a unique touch. Your guests will love the thrill of friendly competition, and fun little prizes are sure to go over well. Here are some ideas to help get the planning process started.
The first thing you may want to do is divide everyone up into tribes. Though you may be tempted to let your friends pick their own teams, it's far more fun if you make it random. Place a small tray in the middle of the group and have everyone pick an object. Make a list that indicates which item corresponds to which tribe and divide your friends up accordingly. If you're feeling industrious, you could create a stack of bandannas that indicate which team they're on - it's not necessary, but it's a fun little touch that your guests will certainly appreciate.
One challenge you can give everyone is to build their shelter. Hand out a few common household items like paper towel rolls, pencils and soda bottles. See who comes up with the best design! If you have a few kids running around the house, enlist them to judge the competition - they can even act as a tribal council when needed. Make sure to give them prizes for participating! Mini classic gumball machines and personalized animal candy bags will definitely be well-received.
When it's time to determine a winner, make sure you have great stuff to hand out. For instance, the champions can receive mini cocktail shakers and personalized playing cards. The runners-up should definitely receive something as well. A small favor like glass photo coasters or silver fortune cookie keychains will work just fine.
A Survivor party is a great way to bring your friends together for a thoroughly enjoyable evening. It's a unique theme that they'll definitely get a kick out of! They may very well be talking about your awesome bash for years to come.
