Parties are the only functions that everyone can slow down and have a good time unless you are with your bosses, of course.
Let’s throw work at the door and focus all your energy on organising the most impressive and unforgettable party. Though these elements are subjective, there are ways where you can create this atmosphere for most of your attendees. Let’s get right on it.
How Do You Create the Perfect Party for Your Buds?
Hosting a party is easy as long as you know how to have fun. It’s all about bringing your inner child out and infecting others with it. If you know the depths of human nature, you would understand that the more out of the norm something is, the more it appeals to everybody. So consider these fabulous party ideas and reinvent how a party should be right in your neighbourhood.
If you and your buddies like good beer, this would be the bright idea for a home party. Order up all the beer brands you can find. Get people to take a blind test contest of the beers you have in your bar. If they guess it right, they have to douse it down. If not, they’ll be drinking in a teeny tiny cup. Use beer pong sets to get people that are brave enough to drink booze in one long gulp.
For the look of your party, recreate the alehouse of The Hobbit or Lord of the Rings. Make sure to have the tallest beer mugs in town. If you have the budget, you can hire a beer connoisseur to give your guests the right blend that they want from your bar.
James Bond Theme
Of course, everyone should embody the tailor cut black tie suit donned by the infamous double O-7 when attending your party. Make your attendees feel the excitement of being James Bond for a night. Instead of the old doorbell entry, you can hang a 2-m wide net obstacle that’s securely fastened into your exterior wall and leads onto one of your windows where the guest can enter. If someone does not want to climb that, then he or she is out. You can build the excitement before the party by sending in invites with a note: “Be ready for an action-packed party. No one should be afraid of heights.”.
Game Show Series
Get your people to show what they got physically and mentally. Indulge them in a series of game shows that will surely zap their energy and will force them to use their brains more than they have done before. Minute to Win It games are relatively simple, and you can get almost all the equipment right inside your tool shed or your kitchen. Let them rack their brains out with smart and trivial questions to host e Who Wants to be A Millionaire game show. You can use a projector and an online game emulator to create the right ambience for the game. Other games that you can play at home with your friends and buddies are Jeopardy!, Wheel of Fortune, and Deal or No Deal. Of course, you can still use many fun games to make the party a fun-filled memory for everybody.
A BBQ party is a classic and everyone would surely enjoy it. You just have to make sure that you got all the best BBQ cuisines in your area or you could cook it up yourself. Almost everything tastes savoury when grilled.
Must-have recipes in a BBQ party are steak, home-made burgers, pork, hotdogs and sausages, chicken, kebabs, fish, shellfish, and salads like coleslaw, potato salad and other appetisers. Of course, booze is a must at a BBQ party. Set up a fire pit in your backyard and a grill. You could also let your comrades cook their food to give them something to do as they talk and mingle with everybody.
Pay Attention To Your Playlist
Even when everybody’s enjoying and having a good time, it can feel quite empty if there is no background music to boost their energy. Ensure you got all the songs you need depending on the type of party you want to throw. If it’s a birthday party, a birthday song is a must plus some fun and upbeat music when playing games and getting the party into the mood. You should also anticipate that there would be dancing and some quirky dance moves from your attendees, especially when you have a family function. Uncle John sure would want his 80s music played when he busts his moves.
Make Sure to Attend to Everybody
Being a capable host means you got everybody in your radar and you know when to show your presence when needed. Mingle with everybody but do not lose sight of what’s going on in the background. Always be on the lookout for things that may go awry, especially when some of your peeps just had more than enough of booze and starts to stir trouble. Always have a designated clean bathroom for people to use and those who might need to throw up after having too many to drink. Don’t allow for any horseplaying in the party to avoid having to break up a nonsensical fight.
Mull The Menu
It’s an age of vegans, allergies, and intolerance. So give attention to this and add in some notes in your invite to alert you of any food allergies and considerations that you have to factor into when deciding on your menu for the party. Also, be well-prepared to have an EpiPen injection if someone had accidentally eaten something that he or she is allergic to. You also have to check if the ingredients in your menu are available now. There are seasonal dishes so take your time to check with your caterer or if not, check with your local restaurant. They would surely be knowledgeable about that.
Prepping for an unforgettable party is all about the ambience, the vibe, food, and excitement. You should just need to know how to cater to your people’s needs, and everything will go well. Just be ready for any unexpected events that might surprise you.
