We have just had our House Warming Party and it was a success – everyone had fun, there was no drama, everyone behaved and nothing (apart from two wine glasses 😦 ) was broken.
So if you are planning on hosting a party, follow these steps:
- Prepare your house.
Is it carpet central? Do you want to be hoovering it on a hangover and worry all night that beer and red wine being spilt spilled all over? No? Thought so.
We used self-adhesive carpet protector, and it was amazing. You can buy some here.
2. Make cool drinks
We prepared an Apple Mojito Punch and Raspberry Vodka Punch.
I have also made 120 vodka jelly shots. Layered. 🙂
3. Establish the rules
Ensure that you have enough bins and kitchen roll. You don’t want to get your house trashed, right?
5. Have a theme
We chose to hold a Beer Pong Tournament. Everybody loves Beer Pong.
6. Encourage your guests to stick to the theme.
Holding a fancy dress party? Prepare a prize for the best costume. We have decided to choose the ultimate Pong King and Pong Queen.
Congratulations to Luke, His Majesty the King of Beer Pong and Bryony, Her Majesty the Queen of Beer Pong.
7. Show your gratification
Being a great host requires ensuring that all guests are having a good time. When you are expecting presents, show some appreciation for the best present.
8. Use photo props.
9. Take group photos
…But make sure that everyone is looking to the same camera 🙂
10. Prepare some mid-night snacks
When all of the snacky food is gone, roll out a tray of sandwiches after 12pm. Trust me, they will be gone within minutes.
11. Have coffee on the go.
Everyone can only handle that many games of Beer Pong before getting sleepy.
Luckily, we have a cool coffee machine, and it was in high demand!
12. Relax and enjoy yourself.
It’s your party.
