Hosting a party can sound like a simple affair, but it can sometimes be nerve wrecking if it is not planned properly. Amidst all our busy schedules we still want to astound our guests with a house party that is unforgettable. All this requires is a little bit of planning and these following tips will help in hosting a party that blows their mind.
- Decorate the rooms according to the theme
Decorating each room of the house can leave a sense of excitement and can keep the guests on their toes. So, make sure you don’t forget to decorate the porch, backyard space, bathrooms as well. Also, remember that having a theme can make a party much more exciting as people will start getting excited about the clothes to wear.
To make it different even the food can be theme-based so, make sure to plan in advance as you will need time to procure the ingredients. If you have a list of the ingredients, it will help in buying only what you need and not impulsively buy everything that you think you need. Also, be sure to have extra food as there is a possibility that more people than estimated could come to the party.
Keep in mind that some people could have allergies and have special requirements so try to have different types of foods that carter to them as well and label each food. Overall, try to have foods that are simple like cold cuts with different dips as these are easy to prepare.
There will be people that don’t prefer alcoholic drinks so, make sure to carter to them and have ice tea, water, juices or a better idea would be to have a non-alcoholic drink party.
If the party has a mix of people that don’t know each other, have some ice breaker games or activities that will help people to get to know each other. Some games to have are piñata etc. Create a playlist of songs that people can have fun listening and it will also help in keeping a high energy. The next thing that would be great is to have fun props as well as selfie sticks that people can use to take photos.
Prepare small gifts for guests that they can take when they are about to leave the party. These can be candies, cupcakes, necklaces etc that can be set up in a table.
Planning a party can be a fun event, but it does require proper planning and execution. If you don’t plan before the event, you can end up getting stressed during the party which can be chaotic. So if it is too much, get your friends involved because at the end of the day it’s about having fun together. Therefore, it will make the whole process much more smooth and you can also enjoy yourself without putting yourself under a lot of pressure.
