If you are anything like me, you love to throw a great party and are always looking for a reason to play host. Even though the holidays are right around the corner, they are not quite close enough to start holding any events that are holiday themed. When it is that time of year, you can always come up with other reasons to have a party. For me, the best I can come up with is throwing a kind of housewarming party to show off my new home renovations. This can be a fun way to get everyone together to enjoy an evening of catching up of great food and drinks. Whether you just painted a room, or have finished building your new addition to the house, throw a little party to show off your hard work.
Even though I love to play host and throw a good party, it can also be a lot of work to plan. However, I have done it enough that I came up with some great way to make things easy and seamless. If you want to make sure that you are not going to be stressing about the little things last minute, then keep reading this guide below.
Start with The Invitations
Once you have a date set, you can start by sending out the invitations. It has become more and more common to send evites instead of hard copy invitations but it really depends on what you prefer and how much time you have. You can make both a really cute and informative way to invite people if you do it right. There are a lot of websites that have predesigned evites you can fill in the information and fire away through your email. Otherwise, stop by your local stationary store or find a template online to design your own paper invitations and have them printed. Make sure you include all the information needed like the date, time, attire, address, and any landmarks that may help them find your house.
Dress for Aesthetic and Comfort
Even though this is your party and you want to look great, it is still important that you are comfortable so you can enjoy yourself. Unless you have done something very fancy and elegant with your home renovations, you can probably stick a cute outfit from PacSun. One of the great things about that brand is there good prices for both men and woman. Make sure to where something you will be comfortable in all night.
Think About the Food in Advance
Food is such an important part of any get together, so you want to make a decision about what you will be serving in advance so you have plenty of time to order it or prepare it if you are cooking yourself. There are a million recipes online if you need inspiration for good party food. When it comes to drinks, I recommend having one signature cocktail, with beer and wine. If someone really wants another type of cocktail, they will bring their own liquor.
