I like to come up with fun things to do and pranks to play on people.
How to Throw a TikTok Themed Party
If you are looking for something fun and different to do for your next party, consider having a TikTok party. TikTok is a social media app that allows users to create and share short videos.
The app has become increasingly popular among young people, and there are now many ways to incorporate it into your party planning.
Here are 20 ideas I have come up with about throwing the ultimate TikTok party. Use them as a foundation to build on with your own ideas to give it your own twist!
1. TikTok Entrance
Get the party started with a bang by creating a TikTok-themed entranceway. Decorate your door or porch with fun streamers and balloons in all your favorite colors. Then, get ready to dance the night away!
2. TikTok Snacks and Drinks
Serve up some delicious TikTok-themed snacks and drinks. Set out bowls of candy and snacks that look like they came straight from your favorite videos. And don’t forget the drinks! Create a special TikTok punch or serve up some fun cocktails.
3. Play TikTok Viral Hits
Play some of your favorite TikTok songs throughout the party (anything that is 'on trend'). Get everyone moving and grooving with hits from Charli D’Amelio, Addison Rae, Dixie D’Amelio, and more. Probably a good idea to get a Spotify playlist together.
4. Set up a Photo Booth
Set up a photo booth with TikTok-themed props. Guests can dress up like their favorite characters or use props to strike a pose. Be sure to have plenty of camera phones on hand to capture all the fun!
Have a dance-off! Challenge your friends to see who can recreate the most popular TikTok dances. The winner gets a prize, of course!
6. Lip Sync
Organize a lip sync battle. Have guests perform their favorite songs and videos. Then vote on the best performance. Try to recreate some famous TikTok videos.
Play some fun TikTok games! There are tons of TikTok-inspired games out there, from “How Well Do You Know TikTok?” to charades. You can even create your own versions of popular games like truth or dare.
8. Best Costume Competition
Give out prizes for the best costumes! Encourage guests to dress up like their favorite TikTok stars or characters. Or, come up with a fun theme (like a beach party or ‘80s night) and award prizes to the best-dressed guests.
9. TikTok Crafts
Set up a DIY station for making TikTok-inspired crafts. Have supplies on hand for making slime, duct tape crafts, and more. Guests can take their creations home as party favors!
Have a karaoke party! There are tons of popular songs on TikTok, so there’s sure to be something for everyone. Grab some friends and belt out your favorite tunes!
Get plenty of snacks and drinks. No party is complete without food and drinks! Be sure to have plenty of snacks and drinks on hand, including some non-alcoholic options.
12. TikTok Decorations
Decorate your space with TikTok-themed items. From streamers and balloons to posters and banners, there are tons of ways to decorate your party space. Get creative and have fun!
13. Make Sure You Have Spare Phones
Make sure you have enough phones or tablets for everyone. Since TikTok is all about videos, you’ll need to make sure there are enough devices for everyone to use. Have extra chargers on hand, just in case! The likelihood is everyone will bring their own phones anyway.
14. Filming Area
Set up a designated filming area. If you want to get fancy, set up a designated area for filming TikTok videos. This can be as simple as a blank wall, or a sheet hung up on a clothesline.
15. Include Props
Have some fun props on hand. Props can make any video more fun! From wigs and hats to costumes and accessories, have plenty of props for your guests.
16. Encourage TikTok Videos
Encourage guests to film their own videos. Not everyone is comfortable being in front of the camera, so be sure to encourage guests to film their own videos. They can even team up with friends for group videos!
17. Collect the Videos
Collect all the videos and post them online. After the party, collect all the videos from your guests and post them online. You can create a special hashtag for the TikTok party just for the party, and you could even collate them all together and post a video on YouTube.
18. TikTok Themed Gifts
Send everyone home with a TikTok-themed party favor. There are tons of fun options for party favors, from t-shirts and stickers to slime and duct tape crafts. Your guests will love taking home a little piece of the party!
19. Prizes and Competitions
Give out prizes for the best videos! This is a great way to encourage guests to get creative with their videos. Have a panel of judges (aka the party host!) choose the winners.
20. Don't Forget to Experience the Party
Have fun and be safe! This is the most important rule of all. Be sure to have plenty of fun, but also be safe. Have a designated driver or plan for transportation ahead of time so everyone can enjoy the party and get home safely.
21. TikTok Cakes
TikTok cake! What’s a party without cake? Have a TikTok-themed cake made, or even better – make one yourself! There are tons of great online tutorials for making cakes that look like they’re straight out of a video.
22. Use the TikTok Color Theme
Use the Logo Color theme! Use the official TikTok logo colors in your decorating scheme – blue, black, red, and white. You could even use these colors in your cake or cupcakes!
23. Good WiFi Connection
Make sure you have a good WiFi connection! This is important for two reasons – first so that you can post your videos online after the party, and second so that guests can use the TikTok app during the party. Nothing is worse than trying to film a video and having it buffer constantly.
The Bottom Line
TikTok parties are a great way to have some fun and get creative. Be sure to follow these tips to make sure your party is a success! And most importantly, don’t forget to have fun as that's what it is all about. Make it memorable.
