Big Damn Shindig: A Firefly Party at WhedonCon

Big Damn Shindig

Firefly – it’s more than just the enchanting insect spotted during summertime. It’s also the name of the short-lived, but beloved sci-fi western show that stole the hearts of a generation. Joss Whedon really did a number when he created the verse of Firefly, birthing an adoring fanbase that even fifteen years later, still calls for season 2. Here at Damn Good Shindig, we are proud Firefly nerds and definite fans of how well the show incorporates so many different cultures and blends them into a realistic future world. (What we would give to fly about space in Serenity, going on questionably legal adventures with Mal and Co!) And to our immense joy, at WhedonCon 2017, we had the opportunity to throw a Big Damn Firefly Shindig.

Magicians Shindig: Brakebills Cottage Soiree

Magicians Party

We’ve been crazy big Magicians fans ever since we read the books by Lev Grossman years ago. When the show premiered last year, we were beyond stoked that it turned out to not only be good, but be everything we knew (and didn’t know) we wanted. The magic, the art direction, Eliot, the embracing of its innate nerdiness, the intelligence. We knew that we’d have to find an excuse to throw a Shindig to celebrate it.

Doctor Who Shindig: A Party Through Time and Space

Doctor Who Birthday Party

All our dear friend Tanya wanted for her 30th birthday was a Doctor Who party for the ages. As big Doctor Who fans ourselves, we were excited to oblige, and embraced this quirky time-and-space faring theme for our winter shindig. We loved the idea of creating an experience whereby entering Tanya’s house, guests would enter the TARDIS itself, ready for some adventures around time and space.

Magical Details for a Dreamy Harry Potter Party

Harry Potter Party Details

They say the Devil’s in the details, and with our Hogwarts Alumni Dinner, we found that it was the magic in the details instead! A Harry Potter party turns out to be the perfect vessel to showcase lots of magical details. When planning an immersive theme party, the broad strokes set the stage.  We’ve already done a post on transforming our home into Hogwarts – but it’s the little things that really deliver on making the party personal and enchanting for the guests. Party guests just love spotting easter eggs and all of the small things you do that aren’t necessarily the center of attention.
