Is it your special day or an ordinary day that you want to spend time with your friends? Whichever the occasion, planning an epic house party will give you the opportunity of making your day unforgettable. It’s not as simple as you may think. You will need to make proper arrangements and assessments. Take the tips below into account when making any plans.
Create a Budget
Be smart and make plans after thorough assessment and arrangements. It takes money to hold a grand party, so don’t make any rash decisions. Even if it will take a month or two, it’s still going to be your party, therefore, ensure you have a budget.
Have a Guest List
Having a guest list is the key thing that you need to know before you make any plans. How many guests do you intend to invite? Which people will you invite? Will it be family members, including close friends, colleagues, neighbors or just the people you know? Knowing those you intend to send invites to will give you a clue on how to make the necessary planning.
Find the Perfect Location
The location of your party should be where your guest will easily access and which will offer lots of freedom. More so, find a place that has a unique setting that will intrigue your guests. It doesn’t necessarily have to be expensive. It can be your own house/penthouse, favorite restaurant or local club. You can even make it extra exciting and hire fully fitted luxurious party buses and pitch camp in a secure location. Remember, when it comes to the party location, just a little bit of creativity and you are good to go.
Drinks and Food
A party is not a party without drinks and food. Have a variety of drinks including wine, beer, and some snacks as well. Be thoughtful. Not all your guests will want to drink, so make sure to pack up some soft drinks and juices. It’s better to have more than less.
What kind of party do you intend to have? Do you intend to have a white party, a beach party, a disco theme, or a Halloween theme? A theme will make your party captivating.
Means of Transport
Will you host many guests? You may have to show consideration to those who may require transportation. Maybe it’s a football team after-party or a birthday party with all your relatives. In that case, you may have to hire party buses for your guests to be ferried in.
A party without entertainment is just like a house with no roof. You want your guest to move around and mingle happily. Have your special playlist or even hire a DJ depending on your budget. Have your guests entertained by hyping things up, being a fun host and engaging your guests with jokes and games will top everything.
Enjoy and Capture the Moments
Since it’s your party, go all the way and have fun, your guests will follow suit. Also, use the Nikon camera that you normally hide in your cabinet. You can’t call it an eventful day if you don’t take photos of the day for keeps. The good thing about the photos is that nothing is lost, and you’ll always remember the moments.
Look Your Best
It’s your party so you must stand out from the rest. More so, go with the theme of your party when choosing attire. You can as well ask your close friends to help you choose something that befits the occasion.
It is quite important to show your guests some appreciation. For instance, if it’s a white party or formal party, try to give tokens of appreciation. When they leave and after the party, you can offer or send them a thank you note as a sign of gratitude.
