Around the World Party

I love the idea of an Around the World Party. The possibilities are endless!
Pick a few countries, offer food from those countries, and if you want to take it a step farther with activities and decorations you can do that too!! Adding adult party game ideas to this theme are a snap, as you’ll see below.
Make the world party theme a birthday celebration by focusing on countries that the birthday guy or gal loves. You can add some adult birthday party games to the event as well.
You can even schedule a progressive dinner with different housing hosting food from different countries. For example, appetizers could be from Spain (tapas), a main course could be from Italy and dessert could be from France!
If you want to adapt this idea to the USA, you could do that as well – serve Memphis BBQ, Tex Mex, Philly Cheesesteaks, Chicago Pizza, etc.
Like I said, the possibilities are endless for an Around the World Party!
Here are a few ideas of countries and activities to go along with them to get you started!

More fun ideas for your Around the World party
For all the countries, check with your travel agent or a tourist bureau for that country for free posters!
You can also hang up flags from the countries as a great decoration.
To tie it all together a map cake would be perfect!
Consider hanging up world murals at your Around the World party. You can even hang up large maps so party friends can "know where they are going."
If you're putting out veggies or other snacks as appetizers, arrange
them in a fun way. You can get festive and create a flag of a country
using vegetables in the color of the flag. For example, to make an
Italian flag - use red pepper strips, jicama sticks and celery - red,
white and green.
