Summer is all about partying and here is how to host the best one to show off to all of your friends and family.
Sort your music playlist
Poor music choices are the number one thing that ruin parties. If you get it right, the evening will be a success, and your guests will have the opportunity to bond over their love (or dislike) of your playlist during those awkward first few minutes. Try the jukebox app, which enables visitors to use their phones to log in and choose music for you. Most awesome party ever.
Work on your opener
Canapés arranged in a stunning presentation on the table as your guests enter? A hilarious karaoke session to end the night? The middle of the night will take care of itself if you plan a fantastic opening and closer to the evening. Psychologists claim that is the part that people will most likely forget.
Keep the canapes and beverages basic
Better yet, just buy the chips and nuts. The fact that you made the pastry for the vol-au-vents yourself or not won’t likely hurt your relationship with your partner because your guests are looking forward to your company. Additionally, the “Pratfall Effect,” a psychological hypothesis, asserts that the less perfect you are, the more popular you become. Instead of using a tonne of various components to make elegant cocktails, why not try Blossom Hill’s new Spritz line? Cherry, Elderflower and Lemon, and Raspberry and Blackcurrant are your options. They’re a light, fruity take on wine that is quite pleasant. Make sure you get enough drinks as well, you will need to know things like how much beer is in a keg, you don’t want to get halfway through a party and run out.
Get the heat right
It may sound technical, but a party’s temperature can make or break it. Cold temperatures are known to make us unhappy (and who wants to be sitting in woolly sweaters at a party? ), while excessive heat makes us irritable and frazzled. Just keep in mind that you’ll probably be a little warmer than your guests due to running around arranging drinks and appetisers (besides, alcohol causes flushed cheeks), so tone it down for the sake of everyone’s happiness.
Concentrate your attention on a single person
It’s enticing to participate in each and every hilarious conversation taking place at the party because, after all, how often do you get to be with all of your friends in one place? Try to concentrate on only one person at a time, though, as we pay less attention and perform worse when we switch from task to task (or person to person). Give each visitor your whole attention, and pay close attention to what they have to say.
Be open to playing party games
Party games are the BEST method to energise a drowsy crowd, despite the fact that organised fun can be embarrassing. You can try traditional ones like monopoly, ones on apps or Cards of Humanity is the game that is sure to elicit the loudest LOLs, so play it safe.
