If you really want to have a good time and have fun with your friends – throwing a party is a great way to do that. In this article, we are going to discuss how to pick a theme for your party, what activities to do, and what supplies you will need. So make yourself comfortable and get ready to discover a recipe for a perfect party you and your friends will never forget.
What is the reason for you to organize a party? Is this a holiday, a birthday, or just a Friday-night with your friends? Considering this, you will easily come up with a theme for clothes, decorations, drinks, food, and guests. Another reason is to forget about all your problems and serious issues such as how will winning this scholarship help you attain your goals or how to raise GPA and find a part-time job.
Consider where you would like to throw this event. The most common options are your own house, your friend's house, club, bar, outdoor picnic, restaurant, etc. If you are up to organize an in-door party, make sure to ask your neighbors if they are okay with loud music, laughter, and a large company of your friends. If your choice is a bar, restaurant or a club, make sure to call them in advance to book a table.
A party cannot be perfect without an interesting theme. In addition, themed parties will make your guests feel more comfortable in a group of people who have something in common, especially when some of your guests are strangers to each other. Moreover, choosing a costume is fun! For instance, you can throw a zombie, black and white, retro, Mexican, jungle, pajama, or Western party. Choosing something specific, make sure that international students in your company know the connotation!
As a rule, when students have a party, they usually eat junk food like pizza, ice-cream, cakes, candies, and potato chips, because it is cheap, easy to maintain, and tasty. But try switching to something more interesting according to the theme and motive of your holiday! Be creative! And forget that some of your friends are vegetarians.
Usually, students buy beer and shots for their parties. But why not trying something else? For example, make cocktails with different juices and sodas or sangria. You might also consider wine or liquors. Of course, at least a half of your guests will choose beer anyway and buy a couple of cans for themselves.
Remember, if you decide to have alcohol at your party, you are responsible for your guests. Make sure that they don’t drink on empty stomach or mix too many different beverages. Also, encourage people to drink water and stay hydrated to be sober and avoid a hangover.
Of course, decorations should be based on the theme of your party. It is important to make good decorations for a themed party because this will create a great atmosphere and more fun. If you cannot find enough relevant decorations, consider buying some balloons and streamers. Also, a fairy lights is a great idea, even if it is not a New Year party.
After your guests have enjoyed amazing food, beverages, and decorations, they would like to do something. Offer some games and activities to them. For instance:
Choosing the music, you have to think about the preferences of your guests. If they have different tastes, make sure to play different types of music during the party. Make a selection of the most popular or your favorite hip-hop, pop, rock, or funk souls. In fact, anything rhythmic will work.
Make sure that everyone is okay with one another. Don’t forget to introduce those who don’t know the whole group of your friends. Also, monitor the alcohol counter to avoid your guests overdoing with it. If you are a host, your role is to keep everything in order and joy! When the party is over, make sure everyone gets home safely and give them a call or write a message.
