Then how can we have fun and have a blast at the same time? That’s what we are going to find out today. Here are some tips for the host on how to host a party safely and not be a jerk while doing so. If you are planning to throw a party, this is for you.
Choose Your Guests
The reality is, not everyone is your best friend. But that doesn’t mean everyone other than your friends is your enemy. On the contrary, their people you can make friends with. And what’s the best way to make new friends other than a fun party! Choose your friends first and then people you want to make a good relation. Ignore those who don’t feel comfortable with it.
Make Your Party Invite-Only
Even if you invite only those you want to invite, words are going to spread. Try to use invitations, it’s a lost art. If you have to use texts, email or other social media make sure that your party is invite-only. That will reduce the chance of gatecrashers.
Party Should Be Fun
A party is supposed to be fun and entertaining. You may and should try to do something unique but don’t forget to arrange for the usual entertainment. Games, karaoke, music for dancing, pool if you have one and movies should open to everyone. Don’t force everyone to have fun with you. Instead, let them have fun at their own pace.
Food and Drinks
One of the most important parts of a party is food and drinks. If you are having alcohol at your party then try to control the amount. Don’t tell your guests to drink less, order less alcohol. Avoid salty food because they make one thirsty easily. Arrange for cokes and plenty of water. Also, offer foods and drinks yourself so that you can subtly keep an eye on things.
Check Safety and Security
A little mishap can turn out to be a fun memory in the end. However, an accident is just dangerous. Many things can happen so check your house for security reasons. Check if the alarm systems and wifi smoke detectorare working properly. Electrical and water systems should be checked as well. Keep your phone close to you in case of emergencies. The last thing you want is for everyone to remember your party as they are running away from fire.
In the end, that’s all there is to it. Keep a cool head and enjoy yourself with everyone. Party is supposed to be fun for everybody including the host. Don’t forget to make some great memories with the people you care about.
