A lot of people nowadays prefer home parties and celebrate in the comfort of their own home. This also means the same level of organising to keep guests entertained and well-fed. Catering, decoration, entertainment and return gifts are all things which need to be planned. It also depends on whether the home party is indoors or outdoors which can impact things like the catering and entertainment options. If this is indoors you will be prefer a different type of catering, If this is outdoors you can consider live barbeques, live food counters or even food trucks!
Home parties can be equally fun, if not more fun. Depending on the weather there are so many elements you can consider. In the winters you can arrange bonfire and funky camping seating for guests, have a big screen and watch something together whilst enjoying some drinks and great food. In the summer, you can have a rain dance set-up I the outdoor area where your guests enjoy dancing and cool off with water. If it’s a kids party, you have activities for children at home from games, treasure hunts to arts and crafts.
Table decoration and general decoration is also important. This could be simple balloons, a themed event or predominantly flower decoration. This depends on the actual occasion and who the celebration is for. From birthdays, retirement events, anniversaries to cocktail parties; there are some things which you will know that you want and the approximate amount you want to spend on it. A lot of people even prefer DIY events at home where they themselves get creative and make decorative items and return gifts for their guests. This also gives people a chance to roll their sleeves up and get fully involved.
There are things which are outside of the box even at home parties that guests remember, for example, if you’re creating a movie night experience have a live popcorn machine and give your guests that experience. If you want a different cocktail event set a theme for the guests in terms of their outfit for the night. Not in the mood for that? Have a pajama party. Whilst the internet is flooded with ideas, a lot of elements are as such that we know what we want. We can of course, draw inspiration from ideas all around us.
Home parties do not need to be boring, have entertainers at your home to entertain your guests even if this is for a brief time during the event, it is something that will be remembered. Magicians, illusionists, balloon-modelling artists and comedians are all things that guests will appreciate.
