With the festive season fast approaching it may be time to start organizing some parties. People still have birthdays around Christmas so if it isn’t a Christmas party it may even be a birthday party that you are hosting.
Whatever the occasion are you struggling to know where to begin? Take a look at the guide below to throw the most amazing party anyone has ever been to.
The first thing to consider is where the party will be held. Are you hosting it in your own home or will you hire a venue? Hiring a venue is a whole lot easier than holding it in your own home. For a start, you can cater for more people at a venue, and the cleanup is included in the price.
You might be wanting to serve something like a BBQ meal or smoked meal from a barrel. Therefore your venue will need to have an outdoor space to do this. A vertical drum smoker will provide amazing food for your guests.
When you think of parties, what is the one thing you most remember? Is it the dancing or the songs? No, it is more often than not the food that you ate. Food is a quintessential part of any party and when it is done right it can be amazing.
When it comes to the food you have a few options available to you. You could make the food yourself and display it on large platter plates for your guests to help themselves. You could also use the services of a catering company to do the same thing. This saves you the hassle and you can focus all your energy on other aspects of the party.
You could also completely throw out the idea of a traditional buffet selection and go for something more fancy depending on your guests. You could arrange for a restaurant to create some dishes for you and serve your guests a proper sit-down dinner around tables.
Every party needs music, without music it wouldn’t be much of a party. You need to think about how you are going to play music at this party. Are you going to hire a DJ, traditionally DJs are in charge of keeping the guests entertained with various tracks and a few jokes thrown in for good measure.
You could save some money and create your own playlist for the party. There are various apps available including Spotify and apple music to name a couple. You could play this through speakers on shuffle mode to keep the spirits of your guests up.
Depending on your guests you need to decide if you are having any entertainment. For example, if it was a kids party you could have a magician and a balloon man. If the party is for adults then you could have a band playing classical music or pop music, whichever you decide.
Another great addition to a party is a photo booth, these have become increasingly popular among the adult population. They create funny lasting memories that you and your guests can treasure forever.
We hope this guide helps you along the way to the best party in town. Give your guests something they will never forget.
