Your Guide To Throwing A House Party To Remember


House parties will never go out of fashion! One may get tired of clubbing for days at an end, but when it comes to house parties, the freedom to be yourself in your own space makes it a hit, even with non-party enthusiasts. Also, the whole idea of ‘feeling out of place’ doesn’t belong here as there is no age limit or problems of ‘stag entry’, and the only thing on everyone’s agenda is to relax and have fun.

Nonetheless, to organize a foolproof house party one needs to plan in a proper manner. Here’s a handy guide to help you throw the perfect bash.

The Initiation

These are the basic points to cover before you even start planning the party, the first being the occasion. Once you have the reason for the party in place {birthday, engagement, holiday, or even just to relax with friends}, you can go ahead to think about other details like the date, number of people you want to invite, what kind of party it would be {brunch, dinner, cocktail}, sending out the invites and then planning the menu.

Coming to the menu, one way to ensure that a house party is even more special is by serving home cooked meals and cocktails {if you however feel intimidated by cooking, don’t worry as you can just order some food from your local caterers or through app like Scootsy. Use your card on the Scootsy app and get 20 per cent discount as well}.

Alternatively, you can also book a bartender, who will come to your house and whip up some amazing cocktails. If you plan to cook your meals, we recommend you get your food-related items from a good departmental store, which is affordable and high on quality as well. In case there isn’t much time to go out, you can get it all online from big basket.

 Pre Party Arrangements

Half of your work was done during the initialization and the pre-planning is more about just making the arrangements. The RSVPs will give you an idea of the number of people attending which will help you decide on the place settings and food. For the décor, think of items like birdcages, fairy lights, lamps and even succulent plants, that can turn your space into a fancy and cosy hipster spot. Also, don’t forget to plan out your music playlist, and have in place the supplies needed like paper plates, disposable glasses, napkins, trash bags, etc.

Tip: Want to take it up a notch? Skip the cliche plastic red cups that everyone buys for a party and opt for cute mason jars and glasses, in which you can serve up all your drinks.

Day of the Party

On the day of the party, one of the most important things that you shouldn’t forget is ice and loads of it! Hence, it’s better to get packed ice rather than setting ice at home.

Finally, get the house cleaned, the complete party set up ready, and when comes the much-awaited moment, have a ball!

Also, it is a good idea to end things on a sweet note with yummy popsicles home delivered! If you’re just spending it with your squad with a with a movie and PJs, then how about some cookie dough or brownie pops, that you order online from the comfort of your home.
