After-parties are all about having fun, so make sure your guests have something entertaining to do once they are there. If you decide to have an after-party at a club or bar, then the music and the atmosphere is enough to get guests in the mood. But if you celebrate it in a different location, you still have to provide some entertainment for the guests. Depending on who the guests are, it’s a fun and easy idea to organize drinking games such as Beer Pong or Flip Cup. Guests will be brought back to their student days and there will be a great interaction with everyone. Party planning: you need to have this skill.
Having a party after your wedding will give you some extra time with your loved ones and allow to interact with people that you might not have spoken during the reception. An after-party gives you the chance to do that in a fun and relaxed environment. If you’re all about the after-party, Flip Cup is a fun and functional game for you and your guests.
Party Planning: Flip Cup
Flip Cup is one of the most popular drinking games. It’s a perfect game for large parties, because it is simple to set up and you can play with a lot of people. Flip Cup is most often played in tournaments to see which team is the best.
What you need:
- 1 Red Cup per person
- A table
Flip Cup is really simple, even a tipsy person could play it- and they will! This game is a race; the purpose is for your team to drink all of the beer (or non-alcoholic drink) and flip their cups upside down before the other team does. To play, just split the group up into two equal teams and line the teams up side by side along the long ends of the table so that the two teams are facing each other. Each person will get a cup that is filled at least halfway with beer placed in front of them on the table.
How you play
At the beginning of the game, the first person of each team will begin drinking their beer. Once the player finishes drinking the beer they place the cup bottom-up on the edge of the table and try to flip the cup. They can do this by flicking the bottom of the cup until the cup turns over and lands upside down on the mouth of the cup. The player can keep resetting and re-flipping the cup until it is flipped. As soon as the first teammate finishes flipping the cup, the next person in line can start on their cup. This continues until one team gets through all their players. The first team to finish drinking – and flipping – all cups, wins.
