1. Its All About The Ambiance and Accessibility.
Setting the mood at a party is very crucial. This will determine how the party will play out. Simple things can help with the party environment, like different lighting. For example a peach dim light will create a lounge, sexy, feel that will make people want to mix and mingle more with a drink in their hand. Putting a blue light or black light will create a nightclub scene which will get people in the mood to dance and have a good time. For accessibility guests don’t want to have to ask for everything and have to wait while you the host get orders from everyone in the party. If you are serving beer, have colourful buckets on each side of the room filled with ice and different drinks. This will make it very easy for guest to get their own drinks mingle throughout the room inside or cloaking up on one side. Same goes with the food and snacks.
2. Bite Sizes are Bigger Than Expected
Most of the time at parties, people do not want heavy food to carry around. Try to keep it light and snack like. For example, a full steak is a no no, unless you’re having a dinner party. Chicken wings, Quiche, Sushi and Samosa’s are great foods for the main portion of the party and for dessert or late night, cupcakes are light and easy to eat.
3. Specialty Drinks
Speciality drinks are an amazing way to get people talking. However, keep it simple and stick to one or two max. This way you don’t have to over spend on extra mixers and alcohol. Among other drinks make sure to have enough drinks to cater to all guest. There’s nothing worst then running out of boozes in the middle of the night.
4. Just The Right Amount of Seating
This can be tricky, having a balance between the right amount of seating. Having to much chairs around will encourage guests to sit down, which is not what you want. Although, having guest stand uncomfortably is not a good look either, this is why having seats placed in different areas will spread people out but still have them up and partying.
These few tips on throwing parties are more than likely going to help create a memory filled, successful night. Have fun, relax and get creative with it. Parties are suppose to be fun and effortless, Enjoy!
