The world would be a much better place if everyone would unwind and dance every now and then. Of course, people love awesome party hosts and some of the best memories in life, in general, come from a party somewhere. That’s why it is important to learn how to organize a private party properly. Going to a party is awesome but throwing a party, that’s even better. It requires some work but the feeling is awesome.
The all too important first impression
The first impression is really important. It’s basically the same as when you meet a person. You usually form an opinion based on the first impression and that opinion is hard to change. That’s crucial, you have to impress them as soon as they’re in. First of all, make it easy for people to get into the party, if you’re throwing it at your home, put up a sign that the door is unlocked. Put signs up on the gate of how to get in. If you opt for a venue, check it out before party and come earlier to ‘decorate’.
Be careful with the guest list
Even though this doesn’t sound nice, it has to be said. Be selective with your guest list. Your guests are the ones that are the life of the party. So, you have to choose carefully. Include a set of key invitees that are a guarantee that things will go smoothly. Some people simply know how to party better than the rest and they can play a major role at your party. Also, always have someone who doesn’t drink. Rational thinking is important because sometimes things tend to get wild. And should someone knock on your door, it’s best that you send a sober friend to talk and calm down the situation.
There is no rule about where you should have your party but it would be awesome if you could do it in the comfort of your own home. However, if you don’t have a large enough house or you simply live in an apartment building where there can be no partying, you have to find a nice place that everyone will like. For example, if you’re living in London, you could look for secluded spots for your private party in London. Remember, failing to find a good place can really mess things up. If the club or bar where you are hosting your party sucks, the party will suck too. Same goes for your home. Tidy up! It has to shine!
You have to be a good host if you want your party to be awesome. Check on your guests and make sure that they’re stocked up on food and drinks. Every now and then approach them and ask if everything is fine. Get to know the less familiar guests. People often bring their friends or relatives along and it’s really important that you make those ‘less familiar’ individuals feel good. Integrate them, ask them to introduce themselves and socialize with them. Get to know them.
Make sure that the place is spick and span before the party. Decorate it, make a playlist of songs that everyone likes and shop for groceries and drinks. Do this before the party. Don’t do it on the day of the actual party. Things tend to get messy when we rush.
Some of these tips may sound easy and obvious but people still forget them. And sometimes it all comes down to fundamentals. Make sure that you master the ones above.
