If you want to add a sense of mystery and novelty to your party then there is no better bay to go than with masks! Human beings have been fascinated with this enthralling accessory since time immemorial and it has been embedded in the history of virtually every culture of the world, be it in dance, theatrical performances or even religious rituals. Whatever be it, masks come out at the time of celebration.
You can be sure your guests are going to be intrigued when masks are involved in your party. Masks are typically used in Mardi Gras parties and at masquerade balls, but in fact any costumed event could be appropriate to wear a mask. Nothing can spice up an ensemble like a mask does. It instantly renders a seductively mysterious air to your costume.
Party masks are usually made of plastic or cardboard and come in limitless designs and colors. They are often sequined and beaded. It is also not rare to find them crowned with a striking plumage. But you also get special character masks, more popular ones of them being “the phantom of the opera” or “the joker.”
Masks are immensely fun for everyone and lend a whole new flavor to your party. They could be romantic as in a dance where your partner seems all the more seductive veiled behind a mask; or a little terrifying, when you find your friends in the guise of a ghoul or a witch on Halloween. But then again, if you think about it, masks hold a whole different appeal as well – the promise of allowing one to take on a whole new persona for an evening!
You can make all your guests the Belle of the Masquerade Ball when you supply them with elaborate masks. Buy them in many gorgeous different colors and pass them out to each guest as they enter your party. This will add to the decorations of your party and also serve as a fun party favor so they can remember all the fun they had.
