There can’t be a party without any drinks! Alcohol, of course, lots of alcohol is needed, but don’t forget the mixers!

5. Plastic Cups & Straws

If you’re providing the drinks, you can’t forget the plastic cups and straws. We always recommend using plastic cups as this prevents any breakages and let’s be honest, nobody wants to spend the next day being hungover and washing up hundreds of glasses do they? Oh and straws, well it keeps that lipstick on for longer doesn’t it!
