So if you want to know how to host a party that will go down in history as being the most memorable event of the year then keep reading...
The decor - Give your party the wow-factor by taking the time to get creative with the decor. The decor and the lighting that you choose can help to set your party’s ambience so make sure that you get it right! Strings of fairy lights, pretty candles and lanterns can create a great party atmosphere in the evening and late into the night. If you have time to get crafty and create some DIY decor yourself then your efforts won’t go unnoticed! Try browsing Pinterest for party decor inspiration, remember it’s the little touches that will make your party special.
The entertainment - The most memorable party entertainment is always something that is a little unusual, unexpected or original. Try to think outside of the box when booking or buying the entertainment for your party in order to get something that will really get people excited. For a family-orientated, outdoor party why not hire a giant inflatable screen for a weekend of lazing outside watching movies and eating good food and drink? Or for a teenager’s party why not hire some giant water inflatables like a floating trampoline or a giant water bounce and let them go wild?
The food and drink – The food and drink is an extremely important part of your party. No matter how much time and effort you put into booking the right entertainment or perfecting your decor, hungry or thirsty guests will quickly become irritable and unhappy! Make sure that there is a good selection of food and drink available and that you’ve catered for a variety of different dietary requirements. Your party spread should include non-alcoholic beverages as well as alcoholic ones and food suitable for vegetarians or any guests with particular food intolerances.
Be a great host! - There’s no doubt about it, hosting a party can be pretty stressful but try not to let it get on top of you. Do yourself a favour and plan and prepare as much as possible before the day so that you’re not running around like a headless chicken whilst your guests are there. Make the time to chat with your guests and enjoy the party yourself, if you’re having fun then your guests will too!
