HELL NO. WE WON’T SOLO. That’s what the Anything but Cups party theme is all about. Red party cups are about as clichéd as that stupid picture of John Belushi that has adorned the wall of every college dorm since the beginning of time.
The red party cup needs to go. That’s what the Anything but Cups party (AKA the other ABC party) embraces.
Before your Anything but Cups party inform your guests that to gain entry to your house they must bring a vessel to drink from that is anything but a cup.
We suggest that you tell your guests to go to Goodwill or Walmart to purchase low price drinking vessels. Although, usually the most creative drinking apparatuses come from Home Depot. No joke.
Anyone that bedazzles the shit out of their drinking vessel gets in for free. No breaking this rule.
We previously wrote an article entitled 7 Alternatives to the Red Party Cup that provides a good basis for what the Anything but Cups party is looking for, but for more ideas see the list below.
- Beer Bongs
- Martini Shakers
- Coffee Pots
- Spray Bottles
- Tea Pots
- Laundry Detergent Bottles
- Super Soakers
- Pool Noodles
- Pots and Pans
- Plastic Lawn Ornaments
- Crunk Cups
Play any song that celebrates the crunk cup. Because, lets be honest, you’ve got a whole house full of them.
Anything works for this part, but as always you should provide a variety of drinks for your guests.
This party pairs very well with the Pong Golf game that we posted a while ago. You’ve already got all the cups… Why not play a round of pong golf.
KEYS TO SUCCESS
The only way you can mess up an Anything but Cups party is by saying your having an ABC Party and forgetting to specify which type your guests.
The Anything but Cups party often comes hand in hand with an abundance of broken glass. people bring big vases, and other drinking devices that they inevitably get drunk and break. Have a broom, a vacuum, and a number of heavy duty garbage bags on hand. You don’t want your guests getting all cut up. This is a huge liability.
