Every party has the opportunity to be the best or worst night of someone’s year: so it’s important to put in the work to ensure it’s on the better side!  Whether this is an engagement party or a birthday, there are tons of things you can do to ensure it succeeds.

These are the best ways to ensure your party guests have an amazing time and that your event is talked about for years to come.

Hire Entertainment That Stuns

Entertainment carries a lot of weight for any event, so it’s vital that you hire someone you can trust to blow the crowd away.  Look into someone who has a unique take beyond the basic garage band.  A Spanish DJ can add some heat to any party and ensure everyone has a great time dancing and having fun, or a cover band can give your era-themed party a touch of legitimacy!  

Don’t be shy about theming your entertainment, it gives you the chance to push your party a little further and have fun with things!

Ensure You Have Enough Food and Drink

Are there enough drinks and food for everyone?  The worst type of party leaves guests dehydrated and starving instead; make sure there’s more than enough food and drink for everyone.  You don’t have to offer a ten-course meal, but keeping food available will allow a natural place for guests to mingle and a space that will keep them full and entertained.

Whether or not you offer alcohol depends entirely on your own taste, but there’s nothing wrong with giving people a choice to drink if they decide to.  Just make sure that the alcoholic beverages are clearly labeled.  

Pay Attention to the Guest List

The best part of any party is the people you invite!  To keep a party high-energy and fun, ensure that there are no clashing parties on the invite list if you know that two people can’t get along in the same room or that they’ll make things uncomfortable, either trade-off who you invite from party to party, or avoid inviting either of them if possible.  The main point of any gathering is to have fun and relax, and that’s not possible if people are at each other’s throats.

Consider Interesting Optional Activities 

Mandatory activities can be a problem since not everyone wants to partake in these: but you can brighten up any gathering by offering optional activities.  These should be both fun to interact with as well as fun to watch.  For some parties, this can be a drunken art lesson for a group, or for others, it can be fun party games, but make sure you have a good mix of options for anyone who’s there.  

Every Party Should be an Incredible Event

Whether this is the first party you’ve thrown in years, or you’re hosting an event that aims to set itself apart from all others: your party requires work to be good.  Consider some of the above options, and you’ll throw a bash everyone will want to go to!
