A mime party is a gathering of persons dressed like mimes who have been invited by a host for the purposes of socializing, conversation, and recreation with mime activities. A party typically features eating and drinking based on the theme too. Below we have listed some of our favorite ideas for a mime party.

First let's talk about what a mime is:
A mime artist is someone who uses mime as a theatrical medium or as a
performance art, involving miming, or the acting out a story through body
motions, without use of speech. In earlier times, in English, such a per-
former was referred to as a mummer. Miming is to be distinguished from
silent comedy, in which the artist is a seamless character in a film or sketch.

On Stage and on Street
Mime has been performed onstage, with Marcel Marceau and his character
"Bip" being the most famous. Mime is also a popular art form in street
theatre and busking. Traditionally, these sorts of performances involve an
actor wearing tight black and white clothing with white facial makeup.
However, contemporary mimes often perform without whiteface. Similarly,
while traditionally mimes have been completely silent, contemporary mimes,
while refraining from speaking, sometimes employ vocal sounds when they
perform. While mime acts are often comical they can also be very serious.

How To Plan A Mime Party!

1) - Plan A Mime Theme Party
You don't see mime parties very often because most people think there just
to hard  to host but nothing could be further from the truth. Once you read
our list below you will see just how easy it is and how much fun it would be
to have one. Now that you know the definition of a mime; it makes it a lot
easier to plan your mime party. Get your pen and paper ready to take notes.

2) - The best mime parties are costume parties:
Really! It has to be a costume party where everyone comes dressed as a
mime. Mime costumes are the easiest of all to dress for. Just have you and
your guests dress in black and white. You can go with the traditional tight
black and white clothing with white facial makeup or you can go with casual
black pants with an easy white mask instead of face paint. You can find
them at craft stores or if your crafty you can make your own.

3) - Party Food & Drinks
Oh yes! Every mime party has black and white food for sure. The closest thing to black is dark chocolate so you can't go wrong with a chocolate fudge cake with white icing. Cupcakes are a fun way to go too. You can decorate the top of the cupcake with mini versions of masks or you could be fun and put a black and white flower on top. Why a flower you ask? Well we don't really know. haha! but for some reason you see alot of mimes performing with a flower in their hand. You may like to go with cookies decorated with icing in the shape of a face. It doesn't really matter what you go with.... cupcakes, cookies or cake- all will work just fine.

Don't be afraid to go with cream colored potato chips or a white sour cream dip either. Hey it's a party! Go with it! Use your emagination and think up other black and white foods. Were thinking...... baked potatoes and butter. You can go fancy or casual. You call all the shots.

3) - Party Drinks
This is ever so easy. There's an unlimited number of choices for black, white or clear drinks. You can go with non-alcoholic drinks like coke, dr pepper, 7up or sprite. You can go with a dark punch. You can go with mixed drinks like white russians, black russians or make it easy by serving dark bottled beer or glasses of white wine. It all depends on the style of party your going to have.

4) - Games, Activities, Gift Giving or Door Prizes?
No question about it!! The fun in a mime party is miming, or the acting out a story through body motions, without use of speech. We kid you not- half the fun is watching your guests who are not professional mimes, mime. Something as simple as miming a song is just as entertaining as story telling with no sound. The fun part too is you don't have to do any of it alone. You can do it as couples, individuals or do it like a singing group of 3 or 4. There's no right or wrong here. Just have fun with it but make sure your guest know they have to think up some type of skit for the party. Now if your lucky enough to know a professional mime, what a treat that would be to suprise your guests with a real show.

5) - Decorations
You can't get any easier than black and white decorations. Black table cloths with white napkins are perfect. Black streamers and white balloons are perfect.

6) - Added Fun
If you really want this party to be over the top then make sure you provide a small stage with black material for a background. Some performers perform with the lights out so all you see if their white face and white hands when performing. This makes for some fantastic entertainment.
