Whether you are the party type person or the non-party type, something is common among all of us. We all want to make it an unforgettable time for our friends once the party starts. And being the host is not an easy task, specially when we want to throw the best house party ever.
So here are some tips to transform your house for a party.
Do not leave important stuff out of the party, especially because it can spoil the whole experience.
So tick what is essential:
✔ Opener for beer and corkscrew for wine
✔ Disposable and environmentally friendly serving utensils
✔ Disposable and environmentally friendly cutlery
✔ Lighter or better matches
✔ Garbage bags or cardboard boxes
✔ Napkins and toilet paper
✔ Uber or Ola app and some friends who can drop home the high or hungover ones.
Some LED lights will create a romantic ambience if you hang them here and there around the main party area. Not expensive, not difficult at all, these lights are in all decorative shops and you can hang them with a double sided tape.
Light up a candle for an hour before the party starts. Blow it out and relight it after an hour for about twenty minutes before your guests arrive. This will give your house a welcoming aroma that coats not only each corner of the house but also your guests.
The more the number of guests arriving to the venue, the warmer it gets. You don’t want them to feel sticky at all! So set your AC or fans before the party starts and keep the party cool.
Do not forget to keep your drinks chilled! Place the beer, soda and other beverage in the fridge for one or two hours before the bell rings. But if you forget it and you need to make them chilled, place ice cubes in a bucket with water and put your bottles there for at least 15 min.
No party is complete without a serving of the most delicious snacks, or potato chips, depending on the type of party. Snacks are the heart of the party, so make sure you place out all the favourite ones within easy reach around the house. And keep an eye on which ones get over faster to re-fill the plate.
Play songs 20 to 25 percent lower than the average conversation to keep the guests’ conversations going. Do not make them scream out loud to hear each other, neither should they fall asleep on the sofa for the lack of music.
Remember that in all parties there are people who end before the party ends. So be prepared with a room or some mattresses for those who cannot even walk out of the house and keep them safe with the pillow and blankets.
