You might not want to spend too much on food when planning a party. You have two options. Order some finger food and roast chicken from the local deli, or ask for contributions. The latter option is better, as your guests can feel like they are creating the party with you, and bring different meals and snacks they enjoy, so everyone’s taste is catered for. You don’t want to spend days cooking just to cater for a few guests.
To take advantage of the private setting, you want to have a large table where everyone can chat to each other. Unlike in a restaurant, you can design your seating, so everyone is feeling welcome and included in your party. You can spice up your house party by adding funny name cards or creating personalized challenges for each person sitting at the table, which are hidden until they take a seat.
Of course, you want your friends to have fun at the party. You can hire a band or entertainment company to provide live acts and make your event unforgettable. Check out the available options on this page here and choose the act that is the most suitable for your guests’ taste and music preferences. You will also have to make sure that you have adequate sound systems in place, so everyone can hear the music but can have a conversation at the same time.
Combining Indoors and Outdoors
While you might expect good weather during your summer party, not all people will love the sun and the heat equally. If you have a conservatory, make sure that you have spare seats there for people who would like to avoid the direct sunlight or need some space. In case you are holding your party in the garden, provide shade through gazebos and parasols for people with sun allergy and Vitiligo.
You can find plenty of DIY tips on how to create your party decorations on a budget. From personalized placemats to garlands and solar string lights, there are several ideas you can implement to make your party perfect. Fresh flowers and plants are great, as well as unique tissue garlands and signs.
If you are looking to create a relaxed atmosphere in the summer when you are catching up with friends, having a house party is a great idea. Make sure that you are catering for everyone’s needs and taste, providing a choice of food, seating options, and entertainment, too.
