A Rubik's Cube Party is a lot of fun, a great ice-breaker, keeps the event interesting, and will result in so many fantastic photos! To learn how to play (plus all the other important info such as guest favours and food inspiration), read on!
THE AIM OF A RUBIK'S CUBE PARTY
Have each guest arrive in an outfit that resembles an incomplete Rubiks cube (i.e. they are wearing the six different Rubik's cube colors - white, red, blue, orange, green and yellow). The aim during the Rubik's cube party is for guests' to swap articles of clothing until they have 'solved' the cube (i.e. wearing one colour only).
In other words… the aim of this Rubik's Cube game is to leave the party in someone else’s clothes #ohbehave!
GET YOUR SWAP ON
YOU MAKE THE RULES
As mentioned above, the aim of the game is for guests to arrive in a 'Rubik's Cube Costume' and swap pieces of clothing until they're wearing one colour only. Simple, right?
Make the game extra fun by setting one of the following Rubik's cube themed party rules...
Guests must make a quick swap of 1 clothing item:
The final two dot points are hilarious when guests’ are able to swap clothing items without the bride noticing. Gradually during the party she’ll realize her girls are slowing morphing into whole colours and won’t know when or how it’s happening!
Don't like the idea of one blanket rule? Instead, think of numerous rules to be followed throughout the night; for example:
If you want to make it even more difficult: no rule may be used more than once per person.
BECAUSE A LITTLE COMPETITION NEVER HURT ANYONE
Have prizes for one or all of the following:
HOW WILL YOU PLAY?
THE CHOICE IS YOURS
You decide how to include your hen in the game.
Make sure she is the only one to end up in all white (you could make a rule that the bride must get the white item from every single guest!).
Ask your hen to arrive in all white, and have guests wear the remaining five cube colours (red, blue, orange, green and yellow). You can then use the 'bride mentioning a particular word' rule outlined above; discreetly swapping clothing items. When she notices what's going on, have her join the fun. The catch? Whilst guests must become one single colour, your hen must become an unfinished cube (leaving the party in all six colours rather than white!).
Everyone, including your hen, arrives as an unfinished Rubik's cube and plays the game together.
RUBIK'S CUBE PARTY FAVOURS & PRIZES
Food items such as colourful cupcakes, biscuits or lollies make great gift ideas. You could even go one step further and decorate square cookies to look like actual Rubik's Cubes, or create a Rubik's Cube cake for the ultimate themed treat (sending slices home as 'favours').
And whilst we're on the topic of food, beeswax wraps are another fantastic option. Coming in a range of fun colours and patterns, they will go perfectly with your bright and bubbly celebration!
For those after something completely different? Why not go with living gifts! Shop around for plants flowering in the Rubik's cube colours (white, red, blue, orange or yellow) - they will not only make the event look beautiful, but will also make a lasting gift for your guests (which in turn will become a permanent reminder of the fun had at your hens!).
And last but not least, if you're after something special to put your guests' goodies in, look no further than these awesome, instant download, Rubik's Cube favour boxes! Print them off at home, put them together and fill them up. Easy, themed gifts!
THE GAME MAKES UP FOR IT
Thanks to the fun nature of this game, guests' and hen alike will have an amazing time whether your decorations are scarce (i.e. a few bunches of flowers in your theme colours) or elaborate (e.g. themed food, themed drinks - such as assorted coloured shots, flowers, colourful fabric bunting, etc.).
This Rubik's cube game also works perfectly when incorporated into an 80s theme party. Think along the lines of bright colours, fun photo-booth dress ups (from hilarious ball gowns to leg warmers, you'll be sure to find an amazing array of options at your local op shop!), hilarious photo props (DIY Pac Man props, anyone? Or how about famous movie quotes from that era?) and a vintage boom box/cassette tapes (borrowed from family or friends).
If you would prefer to purchase 80s party decorations/products rather than DIY, here are some great items to get you started (click the words to view the products):
Handy hint: If you do decide to go ahead with this theme, make sure you have the funkiest 80s music playlist to ever grace a party on hand, and that guests join the fun by turning up in 80s costumes (in the Rubik's Cube colours, of course!).
SOME HANDY TIPS
A HEADS UP FOR YOUR PARTY PEOPLE
You may wish to include the following tips on invitations:
Make sure you send out invitations early, giving your guests’ enough time to plan and/or purchase the most out-there get-up possible.
