Wednesday, March 13th, 2019

If throwing parties is one of your hobbies, then best to brush up with these simple life hacks designed to delight you and your guests on your next gathering.

  1. Define your purpose, shape your party theme. The era of “just because I can”, has been slowly dissolving and identifying the significance, why are we gathering in the first place will give more sense to the event you organised, Thrive Labs founder,  Priya Parker, emphasizes in her book,  The Art of Gathering: How We Meet and Why It Matters.

Guests will be more eager if they know why a party in the first place or why is a classic countryside style the theme of your baby shower.

  1. Give time preparing the invite and DIY party decorations. Giving the party decorations your personal touch will be a good start, but the personalised invites is like the crème de la crème of all gatherings. Try something like be carefree, join this party, let’s order in something special so no one has to cook.
  2. Set the Party Tone. It does not have to be the grandest of speech perhaps a toast at the start in order to acknowledge your guests and let them feel how happy you are with their presence. Make sure you are all are gathered in a cozy, but ample space of your living room or dining area and ready to party.    There are times when the venue is too huge, the night suddenly runs over without you noticing the guests have already left. There may even be times that almost everyone is suddenly gathered at the kitchen getting the refills, but are enjoying the tinier, cozier space.
  1. Game Rules the Night. It depends who your guests are, but it pays to have some unique games that will challenge and keep them interested and mingling all through the night. Perhaps, at the start you could say if anyone says the word “kids” will be penalized by drinking a pint.
  2. Let the Food do the talking. You might be considering a buffet of finger foods comprised of cold cuts, vegan, gluten-free platters, or even some fruit and pastry platters. Remember, the food, is what your guests will talk about for days. Let the kitchen expertise of a reliable food caterer do all the “dirty” kitchen work.
