Every phase of life, especially when we are young, is a stepping stone to becoming an adult. Most of us remember getting a driver’s license or being able to vote for the first time.
Different passages of life happen through culture, education, religion, and other affiliations. Celebrations are a part of growing up, and milestones we all reach on our journey to adulthood.
Members of Gen Z – those born in 1996 or after – are “more racially and ethnically diverse than any previous generation, and they are on track to be the most well-educated generation yet. They are also digital natives who have little or no memory of the world as it existed before smartphones.”
So, as an adult planning special celebrations for your family member, how do you choose a theme, a venue, and activities that aren’t lame?
Whether you are ready to host individual milestones like a Quinceanera, a Bar or Bat Mitzvah, or generational events like a Prom, finding the right space and creating the right atmosphere is key to making the event successful.
Here are a few ideas to help spark creativity and set the course for a momentous occasion.
Before the pandemic happened silent discos were making a splash across conferences and events. Imagine a room full of participants wearing headphones and jamming to their own choice of music. Digital natives will love the personalization of this activity and the ability to choose their own music. Different colors flash on the headphones helping you to find someone whose color matches yours and is feeling the vibe just like you. Incorporate the opportunity to dress up and you have a unique dance event with all the trimmings.
From a quiet event to an interactive festival, games, and gaming is something Gen Z enjoys. According to YPulse “94 percent of 13-39-year-olds play video games at some capacity, so it shouldn’t be all that surprising that it tops the list as their biggest hobby.”
The ballroom at Infinity Park Event Center can transform into a 360-degree digital experience with video game competition on the screens. Build an event that includes video games that will fuel the energy and experience. Serve gaming snacks like Doritos and Mountain Dew, (yum) and award a trophy to the winning team at the end.
Traditional events like Bar/Bat Mitzvahs and Quinceaneras can have a host of themes from a masquerade ball to Candy Land to sports or even butterflies. Be creative, be bold, involve the guest of honor and have fun with the theme. Fully immerse the party with our digital screen and imagine the full experience with your own catering choice, and activities.
Above all celebrate and recognize these passages from youth to adulthood and enjoy making memories with your family members and loved ones. The experienced staff at Infinity Park Event Center are here to help make your life celebration unforgettable.
