University is finished and you want to get everyone together to have a good time as a group once again. You want to host a party which isn’t an easy thing to do, so here are 12 tips on how to host a party.
Be a good host
It is your party, so host it. Be approachable and ooze charisma because it is you that everyone will be talking about as this party comes to fruition and becomes a success.
Send the guest list as early as possible
This is so people have time to prepare for the event and plenty of time to find outfits and plan themselves.
Don’t leave things last minute
The best thing for you to do is to create yourself a ‘to do’ list with everything listed on it, so you don’t forget anything important
Wherever you host this party, whether it be at home or in an apartment that’s being rented out. Tidy up and store anything break-able away. You don’t want to be paying any extra for anything.
Pick a theme for the party
A party with a theme is more fun. You can get your guests dressed up in an outfit which matches the theme and this makes your party a topic to talk about and discuss.
Give your guests tasks
For example, have one guest make sure that everyone’s’ drink is topped up and have another who is checking on people as they enter and taking coats etc. This gets people having conversations and allows people who may not have spoken to each other at university a chance to mingle.
Why not host an event at your event
Something competitive where one of your peers can win something, maybe an egg and spoon race. It’s something fun for everyone to participate in.
Your guests may want to pick at bits of food, so it’s great to have some platters of different appetisers for them to choose from. No one wants to have to travel in the middle of a party to get some food.
Make sure you pick a good DJ for the party as music can really make or break the party vibe. Music will be a major key in conversation when people talk about the success of your party.
Bring a drink
One way that you can save money is to tell people to bring a bottle, this way you don’t have to splash out on alcohol or any other soft drinks. You can purchase a few but let everyone else get involved as well. This is how to host a party.
