A masquerade ball is a great way to spend your birthday

If you've got a birthday coming up, you may be trying to think of a theme that your friends and loved ones will remember for years to come. There are plenty of ideas out there, but why not try a masquerade ball? It's a unique theme that everyone is sure to appreciate. Plus, it's a great excuse to wear fancy masks, dress up in elegant gowns and suits and dance for a few hours. Here are a few simple planning tips that will help ensure it goes off without a hitch.

First, be sure to pick up stacks of paper masks. You can find these fairly inexpensively at any party supplier. Although some of your guests may have masks of their own that they'd like to show off, those without one will appreciate any extras you can provide. You could even set up a decorating station for those who'd like to add a bit of a personal touch to theirs. If you're feeling creative, you can buy a few extras and hang them from the ceiling as well.

Oval paper lanterns can also be hung up to give the party space a quick burst of color. Freeze-dried rose petals can give a sense of class to the party - sprinkle them lightly across your table spread and tastefully place a few more throughout the rest of the space. If part of the party is taking place outside and it's a bright day, having some color paper parasols can help your guests stay cool.

Of course, there should be plenty of music. Stick to Classical pieces for the beginning - even if your guests don't know how to waltz, it's fun to pretend. As the evening goes on, you may find everyone starting to get a little tired of the music, in which case go ahead and switch to something a little more mainstream!

As your guests leave, make sure they walk away with a great birthday party favor. Mini mint julep cups look great and are sure to be a hit. For something a little sweeter, how about mini classic gumball machines? It may not be keeping with the theme, but everyone will love them.

So, if you've been wondering how your next birthday party should play out, give a masquerade ball a shot. It's a fun and unique theme that your friends will thoroughly enjoy.
