The scenery of Shanghai at night has to be seen and the Bund is a must. The ornate classical and modern buildings take on a new and exciting look as they are lit up by an abundance of colored lights. Looking across the Huangpu River to the Oriental Pearl TV Tower and Jinmao Tower is a magical sight. A night-time Huangpu River cruise presents a wonderful opportunity to appreciate the night life on the Bund. The view to be seen at night will be sure to live on in your memory for years to come.
1、Set up 6 to 8 stations throughout your party where guests can try different crafts like paper cutting and straw insects making. The artisans should be well dressed in traditional Chinese dress. Guests may purchase or take the gifts from the artisans.
2、Your arts & crafts theme party is the perfect place for guests to learn a new skill. Ask artisans who are particularly skillful at their crafts to give brief tutorials to those who are interested in learning － a sugar figure molding expert can go over the basics for beginners, an ink painting blower can demonstrate the art of blowing painting.
3、Live classic music or background music by Chinese traditional string instruments like Guqin or Pipa is played to provide an atmosphere of happy time together.
4、A theme party is successful or not. Food plays a very important role. Since this is an arts & crafts party, food with live demonstration like noodle making and mini dumpling making will be a very good choice. At least around 6 live food demonstration stands should be provided.
5、Never ignore the importance of gifts for party attendees. Think about seals or chops carved with guests' names in Chinese.
