  • Connect With an Event Planning Company
  • The Venue
  • Music Selections
  • Invitations
  • Incorporate Yummy Foods and Drinks


The People

When it comes to planning a karaoke party, the people you invite can make or break your event. While karaoke is typically a fan favorite, some of your pals may have stage fright or not enjoy the idea of singing in front of others.

If you want your party to be full of great energy, make sure that everyone you invite is ready to not take themselves too seriously. This energy of a karaoke party comes from the people in the crowd and in the spotlight. So— choose your guests wisely!


Theme it

Every party feels more fun when there’s a theme to it. This can include your karaoke party. Make your party guests pull out all the stops when it comes to creativity. Maybe even require your guests to attend dressed as their favorite musician!

Something as simple as a theme can dictate the energy and mindset people bring into an event. Get creative with your themes too and tap into your inner child. The more opportunities you have to make an event special, the better.


Connect With an Event Planning Company

If you don’t feel confident in your ability to throw a great karaoke party, you may need to enlist the help of a local event planning company. To make the most out of your karaoke party, you will want to find a company that has access to proper karaoke sound systems, venues, and lighting or decor.

Working with a professional event planner will make putting together your event much easier. If you don’t have the time or energy to plan your own event, don’t hesitate to lean on the help of a party planning company.

The Venue

A party venue can speak volumes to the energy of your event— especially your karaoke party. This means having plenty of space, bathroom access, karaoke systems that make choosing and performing songs easy, and a comfortable, decked out environment for people to enjoy your event together.

If you’re looking to have a chill, laidback karaoke night, opt to host your event in your own home! Often a small gathering can be just as enjoyable as a big bash.


Music Selections

Without access to great karaoke lyrics and music tracks, your party won’t be as successful. Be sure to load up on a large number of songs from every decade. Include hits as well as songs that your friends will love!

Remember, you can hire a company that has access to these lyrics and songs, or you have the option to order karaoke packages when hosting your own celebration.



If you’re ready to throw the karaoke event of a lifetime, don’t skip out on sending proper party invitations. A timeless tradition, sending actual invitations to your party guests can make them feel special and set your night up for success. These invitations can add a personal touch and get people in the party mood— while also offering important detailed info.

Whether you decide to send out digital or paper invitations, your guests will feel excited and honored to attend your karaoke party.


Incorporate Yummy Foods and Drinks

When planning any party, you’re going to want to provide your guests with yummy snacks. Especially when your guests are going to be singing their hearts out for a few hours! Even if you have light refreshments paired with chips and dip— your guests will feel hydrated and ready to sing their next favorite tune.

Depending on the occasion, you may also choose to provide alcoholic beverages. An event company can help provide you with whatever vendors you need for your event.

When it comes to your karaoke party, these tips are just the beginning. Really work on making your event your own and surprising your guests with a night to last a lifetime.

Planning a rockin’ karaoke party doesn’t need to be restricted to the activities and considerations you’ve seen in the past. Try something new and have fun as you put together your next event. Your guests will thank you. Contact FADDS Events today to plan your next exciting event!
