How to Throw the Best Party Ever

Party clean up

Don’t let the threat of having to clean up the mess stop you from partying!

A successful party, even the most last minute soiree, requires planning. These plans to not have to be excessive or hyper-detailed, with every aspect of your party timed down to the minute by any means, but you should have a clear outline, so you know what you’ll have to do in order to get your party in full swing. With these tips in your arsenal, you’ll be more than prepared to host an unforgettable celebration in a prepared and clean house.

Have A Clear Concept

This can be fun for your guests and also help focus your attentions and planning. Without a theme, it may be hard to know which kinds of dishes to serve. Even if you are having a potluck, they can be invaluable as it guides guests on what kind of dishes would be appropriate to bring. This is a surefire way to avoid everyone bringing chili, or people bringing a bunch of incongruous plates that do not work well together.  

Choose Party Friendly Foods

We all want to make sure our parties have the best possible food, but it’s important to be realistic when considering what dishes you will serve. If you choose anything over complicated, you will spend a stressful night in the kitchen, rather than out amongst your guests enjoying your party. Make sure that the vast majority of the food you serve can be made ahead if you are cooking it yourself. Creating a variety of dishes, with some that don’t need to be served hot, will also free up room in your oven, which is especially useful on food-heavy holidays or gatherings.

Use A List To Minimize Stress

The tasks you have to complete can quickly pile up, and become overwhelming without the help of a handy dandy list. Arrange everything in an efficient way, so you know what you have done and what you need to do to keep your home clean and organized while maintaining a fun atmosphere for your guests.
