House parties can be fun, but they can also become boring at times if you are doing the same things at every party, over and over again. To make sure that people actually start looking forward to the parties you throw, here are five tips that are guaranteed to spice up your next house party.
Introduce a Theme
Theme parties are fun and don’t let anyone tell you otherwise. You don’t have to necessarily make your guests wear medieval costumes right away, just start with something small like a party where everyone has to wear a crazy hat or maybe choose a color code for all the guests to follow. Feel free to make it a bit wacky. Full-fledged theme parties are, of course, the next natural step.
Serve Syringe Shots
Jello shots are fun, but do you know what makes jello shots even more fun? Jello shot syringes of course! They are already quite popular at nightclubs and public events, so it’s time you introduced them to your house parties as well.
If you are wondering how to prepare them, check out this syringe shots recipe for all the information you need. Just in case you are wondering, the “syringe” is used to push the shot into your mouth and no actual needles or injections are involved here! It’s purely for fun.
Spice Up the Menu
The quality of the food and liquor you serve at your parties is of prime importance because, just like any other social gathering, your party will be judged on the basis of those two above all else. You have already added jello shots in syringes, now add some new food items to the menu that you have never served up before. Also, make sure that even if you do not have the most varied selection of liquor for your guests, whatever you do have is of good quality.
Keep People Engaged
As long as you are involving at least a portion of the guests, you will have the attention of everyone. Introduce party games that involve people such as truth and dare, spin the bottle, dumb charades, karaoke, etc. Unless you have a bunch of people that actually enjoy playing video games or cards, keep them out of the picture for this one. If there are a bunch of people in your parties who do not involve themselves in any way, it might be time to think about striking their names off the next party guest list…
Revamp the Playlist
No party is complete without music and you need to change up your playlist every once in a while to keep things interesting. If you really want to take it up a notch and you can make space in your house for a dance floor, hire a DJ.
For best results, make sure that you try out multiple of the tips on this list at once, instead of trying them one by one. Keep changing the games, the drinks, the menu, and sometimes, even the guests themselves to keep you house parties fresh and desirable for everyone.
