Looking for vision board party ideas? At Peerspace, we get it!
Vision boards are amazing motivational tools. They help you give your dreams, goals, and aspirations a visual form. They help you clearly see where you want to go – and give you aesthetic motivation to make it there.
Vision board parties are also picking up steam online. They’re an awesome way to share inspiration with your friends — and a great excuse to get together for food and drinks. So if you need inspiration for your equally inspiring vision board party, you’re in luck. Here are 13 fun vision board party ideas to uplift your creative spirit.
1. Pick your theme
First things first — what kind of vision board do you want to make? What special goal do you need help visualizing? Maybe it’s your resolutions for a new year or a destination you’d like to travel to?
Pick a goal for your vision board that you can design at your party. Special themes for a vision board could include:
- School or career goals
- Healthy habits
- Relationship goals
- Travel or vacation destinations
- Hobbies like painting or music
- Positive affirmations and motivation
- New year’s resolutions
You and your guests could all design your boards around the same goal, or everyone could choose their specific vision to craft. Either way, working on your visions together can push you to make them a reality.
2. Send your invitations
Now that you’ve settled on a theme, it’s time to get the word out. Sending paper invitations can help you capture the tactile DIY experience. Of course, digital invitations can do the trick just fine if you don’t want to bother with snail mail.
Facebook events are a great way to invite your social media friends, or you can use a mailing service like Evite to customize and send digital party invitations.
3. Find an inspiring venue
By hosting your party at an inspiring venue, you can encourage creativity in your guests and set the tone for an afternoon of creative fun. But where’s the best place to find aesthetic and inspiring party venues? One word: Peerspace.

4. Make it digital instead
Of course, not all of us live in the same cities as our friends. So, why not make your vision board party digital instead?
Host a digital party via Zoom while you craft your vision boards at home. You can also use a digital app like Canva and share your screens while you design. It’s a fun remote vision board party idea to bring your friends together.
5. Grab some boards
Assuming you’re going to design physical vision boards at your party, you’ll first need to gather some actual boards.
Poster board works fine as a vision board base. You can use glue to attach cutout images to the board. But you can also use cork boards and pins to curate your designs. And hey, don’t be afraid to experiment with alternative boards to up the aesthetic factor.
For example, if you’re designing a vision board based on the food you’d like to cook, you could use an old cutting board as your vision board base.
6. Gather your supplies
Okay, you’ve got the board out of the way. Now, you’ll need pics to fill it. Old magazines or newspapers are a goldmine for inspiring, aesthetic images. You’ll also need scissors and glue or pins to attach them to your board.
For maximum variety, ask your guests to bring a magazine or two so you’ll have a greater selection of sources to choose from.
7. Design your vision
Once you’ve got everyone together with your supplies, it’s time to design your vision boards together.
Start flipping through the magazines to find pictures that speak to your goals. You could also slip in inspiring quotes, photos of yourself or friends, or any other affirmations that feel right. There are no rules here — your vision board just needs to inspire and motivate you.
8. Make a collaborative vision board
Instead of working on individual vision boards, why not create a group vision board for your collective goals? It’s an awesome way to visualize your future plans, hopes, and dreams as friends. Plus, you can rely on the design skills of your creative friends if you’re not particularly artistic.
9. Bring on the snacks
Is a party really a party without snacks? We think not.
Snack trays are ideal for a vision board party since you can place them in the middle of your tables and nibble while you work. Fruits, cheese & crackers, and veggies & dip are all Bueno to us.
Or, if you want something more elaborate, you can ask your Peerspace host to put you in touch with a local caterer for a buffet spread. It’s an awesome perk when you book your party venue with Peerspace.
10. Don’t forget the drinks
Beyond food, you’ve got to have drinks. If you ask us, this is a cool excuse to open a bottle of wine. But mocktails also work for guests who’d prefer to avoid alcohol. It’s a wonderful vision board party idea to create a multi-sensory experience.

11. Play inspiring music
Speaking of multi-sensory experiences, music can help you set the tone for creativity. Classical or inspirational music can help your guests focus and get in the zone. Or, if you’re planning travel-based vision boards, then playing music from your country of choice can help you capture the theme.
12. Take pics when you’re done
Once the glue is dry and you’ve laid your scissors to rest, it’s time to immortalize your hard work. Take a group photo with all your friends to capture your new vision boards. It’s fun to see how everyone interprets the challenge differently — especially if you chose the same theme for your boards.
13. Plan a follow-up party
Congrats, you just threw an amazing vision board party! What should you do now? Start planning another one for next year, of course.
Make plans to meet up again next year with all your friends and see how many vision-board goals you’ve all accomplished. It’s a great way to stay accountable — and to re-evaluate your goals as you grow and change.
As you grow and change as a person, so will your aspirations.
