Are you sick and tired of throwing boring parties? Well, your time has come to organize the best party your friend group has ever seen. No matter if you’re celebrating a birthday, throwing a bachelor’s party or just hanging out with some friends, here’s how to keep all your party guests entertained and happy:
Start with a guest list
You might think “the more the merrier” but that’s not always the case. A good party contains a mixture of people who you know get along, love the host and enjoy going a little bit wild. Also, make sure to limit the number of people you invite so that everyone can fit comfortably in your home or party venue. If you’re planning a dinner party, see if you have enough chairs and come up with a good seating arrangement. When you put a fun group of open-minded people together, your party has the potential to be lit!
Curate your menu
Hungry guests are grumpy guests, so make sure to provide plenty of tasty snacks for your visitors. Your safest decision is to opt for finger food that’s easy to put in mouth without having to leave a conversation. If you want to take a classic route, pigs in blankets, spring rolls, cured meats and some nachos with dip will be a hit. If you want to make a more formal event, find a good caterer to create something unique yet easy to eat while mingling. Dinner parties require a three-course setup, so choose these only when you’re ready.
Stock up on drinks
More importantly, make sure to provide a lot of booze—this will get the party started. If you have a buddy or a family member who loves to be creative with drinks, ask them to come up with a signature cocktail. On the other hand, if you want to go simple, opt for some Australian beer, chill it in ice and most people will love the setup. Want to go really wild and surprise your guests (this works best for bachelor parties, birthdays and other informal occasions)? Here’s another Aussie thing you might want to invest in—beautiful Gold Coast Strippers in Australia will go topless for your party and serve, chat and entertain your guests all night long.
Come up with some games
To break the ice and get the party started, it’s best to provide your guests with some games. You can go old-school with beer pong or Jenga, but if you have a Google Assistant or Alexa, you can find party games like Truth or Dare or trivia games like I’m Feeling Lucky. If you want to get people involved, you can also choose Alexa’s true-crime games.
Provide some party accessories
To end up with a lot of laughs and some amazing Instagram photos, make sure to buy party hats, little trumpets, confetti, silly string and funny party masks. Create a party hashtag and let people tag you in their photos, and in the end, you’ll have a free party album!
Pick out a good playlist
If you don’t want to complicate things, you can simply visit any music-streaming service and get a bunch of party playlists. You can find anything from “Party mix” to “Classic Soul BBQ” or “Hipster Cocktail Party”. The next day, you can blast a “Cleaning Playlist” and make cleanup a little more bearable. If you have a special occasion, you can hire a DJ and leave everything in their masterful hands. They know how to set the vibe, make the music flow and get the crowd to dance.
You don’t need a lot for a successful party. Crucial elements are people, booze and good music, all the rest is details that can make your party even better and more unforgettable!
