A party is always a lot of trouble, althoughpleasant in their majority, but still taking a lot of effort. To make the holiday a success and there were no failures, it is necessary to make a clear plan in advance, which will help to arrange everything as it should. In this article, we will tell you how to make a party so that it is liked and remembered for a long time by all your guests.
Date, place and time
If your party is confined to somea personal holiday such as a birthday or wedding anniversary, you do not need to strive to have a party on this particular day. It is best to move the celebration closer to the weekend so that most of your guests do not have to go to work the next day and they can rest and relax peacefully.
It is also necessary to determine the venuenoisy celebration. Before you make a party at home, think about whether it's worth to expose your home to danger if you plan for a really stormy fun. Perhaps it makes sense to rent an apartment.
Also, try to immediately warn the guests, beforewhose hours you are planning a celebration. The fact is that if the party finishes deep after midnight, the guests will have to think in advance ways how to get to the house. You need to be prepared for the fact that someone might want to stay with you for the night. Or, in advance, warn that this is not possible, or prepare beds to ensure that guests have the most comfortable.
Theme of the evening
The next question, which worries many, iswhat kind of party can be made to make it fun and original. Here, much again depends on what reason you decided to collect friends. You do not need to organize a themed party, but the standard gatherings at the table are already boring for everyone. Think of some script of the evening, competitions, decorate the interior in the house in the appropriate style, pick up music, etc. However, be careful with costume parties - not all of them like.
If you are hosting a party at home, you are unlikelyyou can invite a whole crowd of people. With respect to the number of guests, start from the area of the room where the event will take place.
In addition, try to find a company of peoplewith similar interests or vice versa, a company where everyone can find a like-minded person. Someone likes to sing and dance, someone prefers long talk about politics in the kitchen. To everyone was fun and no one was bored, try to take into account the interests of each of the invited.
Budget of the event
You do not want to go broke after this party,true? Therefore, you need to think in advance how much money you will need to hold the event and how much you are willing to spend on this. Reduce the cost of the party can, if in advance to ask friends to bring with them to the holiday some food and drinks.
We do not send officialinvitations to home parties. Usually everything is limited to phone calls to guests. However, here you also need to be careful not to forget anyone. It is better to write a list of guests on the leaflet and, as the guests are notified about the upcoming party, delete them from the list. Do not ask someone to convey your invitation to another guest: the person you do not bother to call personally can be offended and does not go to the party at all.
Think out the menu for the party. If you want to cook something for yourself, you need to buy food for the party and start preparing in advance. We offer you the following options for snacks that are easy to prepare:
- sausages on skewers;
- various canapes;
- fish or meat rolls;
- light salads served in the croissants;
- cookies, crackers, cakes.
Now there are many options to order food from the restaurant with home delivery. In addition, as we already mentioned, you can ask the guests to bring food with them.
Given that alcohol helps peoplerelax, relieve stress and it is easier to find a common language with each other, this point should be given special attention. Of course, it all depends on the guests who will attend the party, but if you do not know their tastes, then we should stop on the following list of alcoholic beverages:
This is the most popular drinks with a degree, so among the guests there is no person who does not fit at least one of these hot drinks.
Of course, do not forget about the non-drinker audience. In order not to upset people, do not settle for banal sodas and juices. Take time and prepare the following cocktails:
- Non-alcoholic Mojito
- Banana-pear smoothies
The main entertainment at the party should bedance, so do not forget to stock up on good musical equipment. However, even real music connoisseurs will not condemn you if as a stereo you will use a laptop with connected speakers. If you are an adherent of one style of music, do not forget that everyone has different musical tastes (if it's not a themed party), so try to make sure that the playlist consisted exclusively of modern dance hits.
Do not forget about those who are not a fan of music. For them you can create separate "islands", in which the guests can:
- have fun with video games;
- To take part in active games (table tennis, twister, billiards);
- have fun in various competitions.
