Everybody knows that the house party is the quintessential social gathering. The music, guests, cuisine, and closing time are all up to you, unlike in a bar or club. But with power comes responsibility, and if you don’t properly plan a house party, your next invitation could be thrown before it’s ever opened. Have you considered space when organising your house party? If you don’t have the space for the party you’re planning, you may want to consider renting a party home.
To guide you further, we’ve compiled this advice on how to organise the ultimate house party.
A theme is an essential component of any spectacular event. Your visitors will be more excited about the party if you have the right costume or dress ready to go on the day of the event. When planning a house party that will be talked about for years to come, think outside the box and come up with an unusual theme, like dressing up as an emotion. Having a theme for your party is a great way to get people talking and provides you with an opportunity to hold a contest for the best-dressed guests. Your guests will put in more effort when they know they have the possibility of winning something if they know they’re competing against each other for the prize.
When picking a theme for your house party, you also need to think about the location. Consider a country bumpkin theme or an extravagant ball dress code if you’re renting a house in the country to avoid noise interruptions (because, let’s face it, the music will be loud). Get out of your comfort zone and think outside the box!
Check the Forecast
At any house party, the weather will have a significant impact. It’s possible that there will be some people who aren’t interested in going into the garden, but it’s more likely that there will be a large number of individuals who would prefer to sit outside. To ensure that visitors who don’t want to be inside and those who like to smoke aren’t drenched by the rain, you might set up a few gazebos and some Booths By Lux so that they can create wonderful memories and don’t have to worry about getting wet.
If the weather is great, why not add a little something extra to your house party? There’s nothing better than kicking back with a cold beer and a burger or hotdog as the sun shines. It’s a sure way to spruce up your next house party.
Don’t Try Too Hard to have a Good Time
Finally, many hosts make the mistake of trying to push their visitors to participate in activities. Avoid doing this! People will enjoy themselves if you have a couple of decks of cards available and a game of beer pong set up and ready to go. Also, as the drinks start flowing, the games tend to fall by the wayside, and the major focus shifts to the people around you. If you’re having a party, don’t stress out too much about the entertainment. In the end, have fun!
