Essential Party Checklist: What you need for a good party!
We've all been to a party that just wasn't very exciting. The atmosphere was dull and you'd rather be at home in your PJs with a drink than out and about. To make sure your next party is a hit, or to liven up a dull one, here are six easy steps to follow.
1. Play good music.
A well-chosen playlist can create or break the atmosphere at a party. My favourite aspect of a party is the music, and I'll pick that over the people any day! Throwback classics that everyone can sing along to are the tunes of choice. Get into some nasty bangers or whatever suits the mood of the party after the night has begun.
2. Fresh air.
To avoid a stuffy environment, ensure that the location has enough ventilation. An overcrowded, stuffy room where individuals sweat a lot and stink like they've been in a cubicle for days on end is the pits. If possible, an open floor plan that allows for seamless transitions between the inside and outside is desirable. You may also use an air conditioner or a window to let fresh air in.
3. An inclusive environment.
In addition, splitting people into separate rooms of the house is an easy way to wreck the vibe of the party. Try to limit the amount of rooms being used & have all the singing and chit-chatting in the same space. An open space should not make people feel alienated from one another, but rather should encourage social interaction.
4. Stay hydrated.
When I've had one too many I live by the motto, "get on the waters." For a good night out, it's best to keep yourself well-hydrated and eat something to keep your energy levels stable through the night. Think of it as a kind of delayed gratification; you'll be able to have more fun during the party and not have to worry about a hangover the next day.
5. Introduce a drinking game.
To add an extra element of fun to the party, consider introducing a drinking game such as Beer Pong. This classic game is a favourite among party-goers and is sure to get everyone laughing and interacting with each other. To play Beer Pong, you will need a set of red cups, a ping pong ball, and beer for each team member. The instructions for Beer Pong are easy to follow and can be found online.
6. Provide information.
Make sure to provide guests with all the necessary information about the party such as the time, location, and dress code. This will help to ensure that everyone is on the same page and knows what to expect.
By following these simple rules, you can turn any party into the ultimate night of fun and enjoyment for all guests. With good music, fresh air, an inclusive environment, and a well-hydrated crowd, you'll have a recipe for success.
