OH BEHAVE. THROW AN AUSTIN POWERS PARTY. YEAH BABY!
Out of the middle of the boons in Averill Park, NY a pretty fun group of friends gathered to celebrate their friend, Larry, for his 50th birthday.
This wasn’t a regular party, however. It was an Austin Powers theme birthday.
If I have said it once, I have said it a thousand times; if you select a theme, you are going to have a blast no matter what. When you select a theme, everything comes together. The decorations pretty much assign themselves and all your guests have ideas and contribute. If you have the guts to do it, it really pays off for asuccess every time, according to my experience and what I have seen.
Selecting the movie Austin Powers for their theme and “Having a blast” is exactly what this group did at Larry’s man-cave, “Mulligan’s Pub” – a big garage with a pool table and all the trimmings
SOME COOL AUSTIN POWERS THEME IDEAS FROM THE PARTY:
1) Make sure everyone dresses up – even with the obscure characters.
2) Put out a “MOJO PUNCHBOWL” with some blue drink – using glowing ice cubes.
3) Tape up lots of colorful flower cut-outs.
4) Colorful lights are a must.
A funny point to mention – I had an Austin Powers costume that sort of looked like Elton John. I did, however, construct it so that removing a few key elements, it could transform into the Doctor Evil in jail look. I figured that with all of the guests, many would have had to come as Doctor Evil. That wasn’t the case. So about an hour in or so, I turned into my Evil self, and had a blast, myself, emceeing in full character.
