Planning a party for a birthday, holiday or otherwise can seem like an overwhelming task for any host. What type of food to serve? Who to invite? Where to host it? – May just be a few questions running through your head.
Luckily, we”re able to make your life a little easier with these six entertaining tricks. These tips will not only make you look like a party planner extraordinaire, but also allow you to hold a chic party and wow all your guests, young to old.
Use Affordable Decorations
Create an easy centerpiece by taking a big Styrofoam ball and sticking lollipops into it! It”s easy, cheap, and an edible solution to keep the kids occupied.
Let Your Guests Pick the Tunes
Choose music that you think will be most agreeable for your guests. It”s a good idea to have an iTunes open on your computer so you can download tunes that guests suggest.
Serve Fuss-Free Food
Instead of slaving for hours in the kitchen, opt for festive finger foods that are easy for guests to munch on throughout the night.
Create a Specialty Concoction
It”s fun to include at least one specialty cocktail that leaves a lasting impression with your guests. Serve your drink in a chic glass or incorporate a creative garnish for extra flair.
Set Up a Kids” Table
It”s smart to set up a separate area for little ones to have their own fun. Cover a table in butcher paper and place bundles of colored pencils in Mason jars, so each kid can channel their artistic side right on the table.
Make Clean Up Easy
Set a plastic dishpan in the sink and fill it with warm, soapy water. As empty dip bowls and serving utensils pile up, plunk them into the bucket allowing them to be easier to deal with after a good soak.
