Throw Parties like a Pro

Play the perfect host!

Playing host can be quite tough! Invitations, food, music and décor – everything must go perfectly. Follow these tips to polish your hosting skills and keep your guests holding their breaths for plenty more invites from you.


House parties set quite the stage for socialising. They also come with the burden of painfully detailed planning. The guest list must be screened, the entertainment must be a crowd-pleaser, the food has to be sensitive to all palates and allergies, and toughest of all, setting the right mood is completely the responsibility of the host. One wrong call and you might just lose your standing as party-giver. Stay on top of your game with these helpful pointers.


Plan your guest list:


The success of a party is directly proportional to the number of memorable moments made; and that depends on the guests. Don’t forget to invite your neighbours; if they are part of the party, there is no scope for complaints!

When you send out invitations, ask for an RSVP. This is a great way to help you plan the food, drinks, and party events.

Ask yourself what type of party you’d be comfortable hosting, before you send out invitations. If it is going to be an intimate affair, make it a group of 8 to 12. If wild bash is what you’re going for, expand the list. Whatever the size, remember that all executive duties will be yours. Invite a feasible number that is within your comfort zone.
