Are you hosting a party some time in the near future? If so, you may want it to be infused with the culture of the Philippines. Filipino parties can be a ton of fun, even if you have no Filipino blood in you. This country has great music, food, entertainment, and more. All you have to know is what you need to bring elements of that country into your party. Here are a few tips that may help you out.

Filipino Foods

No Filipino party would be set without Filipino food to eat. There are a few different ways you can go about getting this food for your party. You could order a Filipino party platter from a restaurant in your area, or you could decide to cook the food on your own. All you need for the second option is a few Filipino recipes and some authentic Filipino ingredients to get started.

For an extra kick, you could add Filipino drinks to the menu, like aloe juice or jelly tea. Then your party guests will get the full taste of the Philippines when they come to your event.


Videoke is the Filipino version of karaoke. You can get a Filipino videoke machine to use at your party, and that should provide enough entertainment to last part of the night. Different machines have different songs and requirements, but you should be able to find something that is perfect for your party.

Filipino Movies

If your party-goers are not the type of people o rock out to karaoke, you may decide to get some Filipino movies to watch instead. Then you would have a chance to actually see the culture you are trying to emulate in your party and you would have something to keep your guests entertained for an hour or two. You could all talk about the movies afterward to see what you thought about them.

Filipino Scents

It would not be a bad idea to scatter some Filipino air fresheners throughout your house so you literally have the smell of the Philippines for your party. These scents mixed with the delicious smell of the food you order should provide you with the perfect setup for your Filipino party.

With a little creativity, your Filipino themed party is sure to be a success. Hopefully the tips above will give you a starting point to build on in the near future.
