Nerf themed birthday parties are very popular, and the following tips will help you plan this type of party:
Find The Right Venue
Whether you are going to host this party at home or at a venue, you need to figure this out, and this should be the first step of the planning process. You need to find a suitable location, and if you are going to do this at home, you need to make sure you have enough space so that the guests can run around and play comfortably. If you prefer a Nerf venue, you can rent the space for a few hours, and because they specialize in these types of parties, they will have the perfect environment consisting of ramps, small towers and obstacles so that the guests can hide behind them.
Find The Nerf Equipment
You can’t have a Nerf party without the right equipment, so you need to make sure you have all of the necessary items. You can rent the equipment if you are hosting the party at home, and if you decide to rent a venue, they will provide you with all of the equipment as part of your package. Necessities include Nerf blasters and Nerf ammo, which come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. Safety goggles are a must so that the eyes are protected, and if you want to take it up a notch, you can also rent vests.
Set Up An Obstacle Course
If you’re hosting the party in your own home, you will have to set up an obstacle field and will have to create targets and places where the players can hide. You will have to make sure you have enough space for the guests to run around, and you can get as creative as you like. For example, you can use cardboard boxes and paint them to create a fun environment. If you choose to have the party at a venue, you won’t have to worry about this step because they will already have the obstacle course ready.
Send Out Themed Invitations
Since this is such a fun and popular theme, it would be really exciting for guests to receive Nerf themed invitations. Make sure the cards are colourful and include all of the necessary information so that your guests know the time and date of the party. Include a phone number and an RSVP section and try to match the Nerf colour scheme to make it more exciting.
