All great parties have these 9 things

What makes a great party? There are nine elements that make a great event. These things are essential to a successful party. Without them, your guests will not be left thinking “That party was incredible”

Make sure that these key components are present to ensure your guests continue to think about your event even weeks after the party.

1. An Enticing Invitation

invitation is a party planning element that is often forgotten, but should not be. Why? It sets the mood for the event. Your guests will be excited to attend the event when they receive a thoughtful, enticing invite. Alluring invitations come in many shapes and sizes. A beautiful, thick calligraphy can be lovely, but a heartfelt, hysterical message is equally as charming. Include all pertinent information (time and location, event, dress code etc.). Include any fun facts, the more personal the better.

2. A group of interesting guests

Your event should have a certain amount of exclusivity. You don’t have to invite everyone. You can create a list of interesting people by selecting a few guests. Bring people together from different aspects of your life. Do you think your new co-worker and your old high school friend would get along? Seat them together at a dinner. Take into account the personalities of your guests. You want a mix of introverts and outgoing people, good conversationalists, excellent listeners and all ages.

3. Festive Decor

Even if you’re in a studio, you can transform the space with fresh flowers, twinkling candlelight, and a beautiful tablecloth. Also welcome are balloons and streamers.

4. A Lively Playlist

A party without music can be like a meeting. So turn the tunes up and create a fun playlist. Make sure you have enough music to last several hours and select songs that will help the party flow. Music played during the dinner should differ from music played afterward. During the meal, keep things mellow and chill. Then bring out some dance music to get everyone moving. Another idea? Set Spotify as a favorite channel.

5. Consideration for Details

The best hosts are thoughtful, and they will take care of the small details to make her guests feel special. She will serve the favorite foods of her guest of honor and decorate in their favorite colors. All of these small details, such as a seating chart and place cards with a menu on a chalkboard, or a favor guests will enjoy, Do not overlook the small details!

6. Crowd-pleasing Food

A party is not complete without delicious food. Don’t forget to include on the menu. You still need to provide snacks to your guests, even if it’s at odd hours. For example, a bridal party that starts after lunch begins at It’s not necessary to be an expert chef to create a beautiful cheese platter. You just need to make friends with the cheesemonger in your local supermarket

You can also serve a platter of chicken wings or crudites from Costco, provided you remove the packaging. Serve the food on elegant platters or chafing dish to keep it warm. Do as much in advance as possible if you are planning to serve finger foods and homemade dips. Don’t spend your time in the kitchen while guests are having fun in the living area!

7. Delicious Drinks

Alcohol is not necessary for some people to have a good time. I am not one. You don’t have to be the bartender for the entire party. So, if you are able to prepare a cocktail ahead As your guests arrive, serve them margaritas, sangria or a large pitcher. You can also set up a small bar where guests can make their own drinks or offer wine and beer. Glassware is ideal, but it’s not mandatory. Solo cups will do in a pinch.

8. Group Bonding Activities

You can make your guests more relaxed and friendly by playing games. It doesn’t need to be cheesy. Adding a competitive element to your party will make it more fun. They are timeless, classic party games that never go out of style because they’re so much fun. You want something more modern? Cards Against Humanity can be a great way to get everyone talking, while Table Topics is perfect for a more relaxed dinner party.

9. A Surprise Element

Your event should have a surprise element, whether it’s an unexpected photo booth for guests to take funny photos or a dessert table with a variety of sweet treats. You don’t need to go crazy. Just do something that nobody expected. It’s a party! Serve the bread from a new bakery that is popular and has a long waiting list. Have a port tasting after dinner or serve an expensive magnum red wine.
