Last time while I and my family members were planning to host a birthday party for a grown up teenaged niece, we decided to make it pretty unusual from the regular parties. Many chipped in with several ideas, but somehow some or the idea looked worn out and no one could figure out a proper plan. At the same time, one of my younger brothers was busy sending emoji to his WhatsApp group. That emoji’s enlightened him and he came out with an awesome party theme to plan for anyone. He gave an idea of hosting a party themed with emojis. And that was it. Without a thought, everyone in the room agreed to the idea. And believe me, it was so far one of the most memorable parties I have ever attended. Therefore, I decided to share our emoji birthday party ideas, and also, other party ideas that flashed through our timid brains while we got our theme to life.

You can opt for facial masks with different emoji for different guests, in case you think not everyone can attend the party dressed like a smiley face. That wouldn’t make them awkward or feel left out.
One can also use their wits to design their own headgears that replicate an emoji. It would be a great scene to witness the world full of emoji’s enjoying their selves to the fullest.
