Around The World Party 

Around The World Party Invitations

Cut out pictures from travel brochures & use to make a collage on the front of a folded piece of A4 paper or card.

Write the party details inside.

Draw flags or a globe on a piece of card & write the party details on the reverse.

Get hold of a variety of cloth/plastic flags from embassies in London & write the party details on one side.

Print out some of your holiday photos or download pictures from the internet & use to make postcards with the party details on the back. Make sure you send out in an envelope though or the postman may come to the party too!

Create a passport for each guest with the party details inside.

Around The World Party Decorations

Decorate the walls with posters, flags & maps obtained from travel agents or embassies & place brochures around the room. Make flags from strips of material & drape over the furniture. These or a large map can also be used as a tablecloth. www.flagsandbuntingstore.co.uk has a wide range of suitable goods or check out the multi country flag bunting at Party Pieces.

You could also make different sections of the room(s) different countries & add as many accessories as possible. For example along with posters, France could include a string of garlic or onions, a beret, a box or bottle of (empty) wine or even lean a bicycle against the wall if there’s room – I know this is a caricature of the french but it makes it easier!

Indian Girl: coloured t-shirt, length of material wrapped around waist & shoulder to create a sari, bracelets.

Around The World Party Games

Flags – give guests a piece of paper with a list of countries on & a row of corresponding flags along the bottom or have around the room for everyone to see. The first team/person  to match the flags to the countries correctly, wins.

Atlas –  print out some maps of the world but without the names of countries on. See if guests can name the ones selected by you.

Culinary Knowledge – see how well your guests know their food by showing them pictures or a list of dishes or ingredients & seeing if they know which country they originate from.

Quiz – compile a list of questions about as many different countries as you can.
