The iconic Burberry is up and ready to take center stage once again! Welcome back to the third installment in our series of How-To guides on throwing fabulous designer-themed parties. We’ve already explored the exquisite worlds of Yves Saint Laurent and Hermés, and now, we’re voyaging back across the English Channel to celebrate a British brand renowned for its luxurious cashmere, timeless trench coats, and iconic check pattern: Burberry.
But before we dive into the world of Burberry-inspired festivities, let’s clarify one thing: we’re talking Burberry, not Blueberry. Although, if you’re feeling adventurous, you could always contemplate the intriguing notion of blending the two and hosting a whimsical blueberry Burberry party. Who knows, with a touch of creativity, it just might work. Or perhaps it’s an idea that’s deliciously daring in its own right. Let’s explore how to infuse the essence of Burberry into your celebration and make it a memorable affair.
Here’s How To Throw A Burberry Themed Party.
1) Burberry Themed Party Dress
Burberry is famous for a signature beige check aesthetic, among its lux cashmere scarves and trench coats, so, of course guest have to dress the part! Even if your birthday is in the heat of summer, you can still rock a Burberry inspired look. If you stick with check in beige, and black, you really can’t go wrong (and now and then they throw in some navy or Cobalt blue). For more inspiration, get it straight from the legends themselves here.

3) Don’t Be Stiff
Just because Burberry is a British brand for mostly winter clothes and scarves, with serious looking models, does not mean this party has to be void of fun. In fact, Burberry had an epic pub after party a few years back that had two DJs and a live performance by The Kooks. Some folk sported amazing face-paint. At Yombu we have professional face-painting artists who will come to your party and keep the guests busy with creative designs while you snack on your Burberry biscuit.
4) Burberry Themed Party Activities: Have Mannequins And A Fashion Show
Following on said serious faced models above, create a model-ly feel and have dress display forms at your party. Dot them around the room, and on either side of a runway – however you choose to make it – for a fabulous modelling show where the kids can model their check and give their best stern modelling face. More than likely it will result in more laughs than blank faces, but that’s the whole point. The dress display forms often come in a light beige color, making it compatible with the aesthetic, and they actually just look pretty cool. They can even double as coat hangers. Shop for them here.
