How To Host An Unforgettable Event With These 4 Tips

You're ready to throw a party, but you aren't sure where to start. You want to make sure your guests all have a great time, but you feel like you don't know what you're doing. Don't fret! Here are four tips to have you host an unforgettable event!

Choose a theme

One of the first things you should do is pick a theme for your party. If you want to go all out and ask your guests to dress up for a Great Gatsby party, go for it. If you don't want to do anything crazy, though, you can stick to thinks like a theme that involves food. If it's near a holiday, like St. Patrick's Day, you can make food that fits in with that theme and incorporate some green decorations to reinforce the theme.


Amazing food and drinks

Speaking of food, they say the way to someone's heart is through their stomach. You've probably been to a party where there wasn't any food, or the food wasn't great...and it probably didn't go down on your list of "Best Parties Ever". Make sure you have a lineup of delectable food for your guests. If you aren't a master chef, you can order food in, have it catered, or simply stick to things you're good at. Don't forget about dessert either (my favorite meal of the day!). And keep in mind that you can also pair your food with beverages to impress your guests even more.


A place for photos

If your guests are having fun, they're probably going to want to take photos with each other. This is where ceiling draping, backdrops, nice lighting, and the other important design tools come in. You can use these items to create a "selfie station." You can even include props so your guests can get silly and have fun!


Make a playlist

Finally, you'll want to make a great playlist for your party. Put songs on the playlist that you know your guests will like. It goes without saying (but we'll say it anyway) that songs you can dance and sing along to are usually a hit. You'll want to make the playlist around five hours long, as most parties don't last longer than that....if it does, make it longer.


There you have it, four simple but time-tested tips to help you be the host with the most. If you're still struggling, the U.S. party and event planning industry employs nearly 134,000 people, and you can enlist one of them for more help.
