You’ve finally found the perfect venue, the invitations have been sent out, and you’ve thought up the perfect theme for the night. Organising a party is one thing, but then what? If you’re the one organising, everyone is going to be looking to you to be the perfect host/hostess. It’s not as easy as it seems. But don’t fear, we’ve got the perfect list of our top 10 Dos and Don’ts to hosting. Follow this guide, and you’ll be hosting a party that people will be talking about for years.
Do greet everyone as they arrive
Depending on the size of your venue, or the number of people you are expecting, greeting every single person can be difficult. Particularly as guests arrive later, you might not even notice them arrive! Do your best to say hello to as many as you can, as soon as you can, as it might be difficult to get a hold of them later. This way you can direct them to food and drink, and tell them about any other festivities you have planned!
Do think about people’s jackets
Is there a room in your venue where you can have a cloakroom? Or a rail at the entrance? If not, it’s a good idea to invest in one, even if it means going out of your way to buy something suitable. No one wants their jackets and scarves on their arm all night or draped over a chair. You can direct them to your makeshift ‘cloakroom’ when they arrive, and you can guarantee that all your guests will appreciate it.
Do have plenty of food and drink
Even if you’re not having a free bar at your party, a drink on arrival would still be well received by everyone when they get there. Make sure that there is plenty of food for everyone, as guests can get hungry later on into the night. If you are worried about waste, choose food that won’t perish quickly, and have containers so guests can bring some home if they want to. Remember to have a selection, so that there’s an option for people with dietary requirements. If you know a lot of people are vegetarian or vegan, make sure there is something that they can eat.
Do have a start and end time
Put an accurate starting and ending time on invitations. If you need everyone there by a certain time, make sure you specify that you your invite and put an incentive to discourage lateness. The same goes for ending time. If everyone needs to have vacated the building at a certain time, make sure people know in advance so that they can have their transportation booked. There’s nothing worse than a dozen people standing outside in the cold desperately ringing taxis.
Do stay on theme
If your party has a certain theme or if you’ve asked your guests to dress a certain way, make sure that the party reflects this. Decorate the venue to match and add in some personal touches of quirkiness that your guests will appreciate. If it’s a more formal event, make sure that the food served reflects this as well as the music being played. If the ambience of the party isn’t right, it can make an event that sounded great on paper become stilted and forced.
Don’t neglect introductions
While you might be busy at times, leaving a guest in a room full of strangers is a big no-no. Not everyone has the courage to speak to a group of strangers who are already telling stories and laughing. Make sure that you introduce people to others, even if it’s very briefly, and add in something that they have in common if you need to dash off. If you know someone is arriving on their own, pay particular attention to them if they don’t know the rest of the crowd.
Don’t drink too much
No one likes a drunk host, and unfortunately, it’s up to you to keep the event rolling smoothly. People might have questions for you throughout the night, particularly if the function is in aid of a charity or there are any special events happening. You’ll need to be able to give your full attention to whatever needs done at a moment’s notice.
Don’t neglect the party games
If your party is the type where party games wouldn’t be out of place, them make sure that you include some! There are a lot of really fun ideas out there to get people mingling and they can really lift the mood of the entire room. Once people start laughing and relaxing, then the party really gets started. When in doubt, there’s always a dance off!
Don’t go overboard
Sometimes, there can be a point when a party is ‘too much’. Your guests are all there because they want to be, and they don’t want to be overwhelmed by there sheer amount that you have going on. While décor is important, simple is still better, and you’ll be the one cleaning it up afterwards. Don’t put too much pressure on your guests to dress up, as they might end up ditching the party altogether.
Don’t forget to enjoy yourself
While you are hosting, it’s still a party, and you should relax and enjoy yourself. After all, the planning is over now, and there’s nothing more that you can do other than let the party take its course. Make memories with the people around you instead of checking on other things every five minutes. Have some fun!
Once you’ve hosted a successful party, it’s something that you’ll always remember, and so will your guests. If you follow these top tips, your sure to have a night to remember, just don’t forget to take lots of pictures to remember it by!
