May the party gods ever be in your favour.
Music is literally the life of your party. Yes, good food is a must, and we'll get to that in a bit, but you need to really decide what music you want. Obviously, you're inviting your friends over and you know what kinda music they like. Make a playlist with songs that most people would want to listen to, and some that will satiate the ones with a slightly different taste. Make everyone happy.
2. Get a DJ
You don't want your friends plugging in their phones in your stereo saying, "Dude! You have to listen to this!" Your party isn't a wannabe DJ shack, not if you want it to go down in history.
So, instead of having to politely refuse friends and break their fragile hearts, get some professional help. Score the number of the DJ who plays at your favourite restaurant and ask them to breathe musical life in your party.
3. Get good speakers
Your computer speakers, even at the highest volume, aren't high enough. So you can either rent, buy or borrow speakers with bass powerful enough to make all them shawtys get low, low, low, low, low, low, low.
4. Lights. Camera. Party.
In case you haven't realised already, "disco lights" aren't just limited to discos anymore. Motivate your guests to make a dance floor out of all the empty area in the living room by renting good lights. Remember, looking after these small things make the most difference.
5. The most crucial thing ever - Food
The icing on the cake called party, food will be the deciding factor on whether your party will get a para in the history book, or a full chapter. If you want a chapter, play it smart and load up on finger food. Different kinds of chips, samosas, cutlets, watermelon and cheese kebabs, popcorn chicken, fries, etc.
Light food, with variety that won't make your pals sleepy is what we're talking about. The French call it hors d'oeuvres and the rest call it appetisers.
6. Say hey to alcohol; and a bartender
Everyone knows someone who studies Hotel Management. And they know someone who is attending bartending school. Hire a student who will man the bar for you for cheap and can mix basic cocktails. Get a crate of beers, and bottles of Smirnoff Vodka, Rum, Signature or Black Dog Whisky along with packs of cranberry juice, pineapple juice and flavoured sodas.
7. Cleaning up made easy
Make good quality disposable plates and cups your new party BFFs. Only your food bowls and cutlery need to be silverware. Less mess, more happiness.
And that's it! Now go create a Facebook event titled "Party at my place" with confidence.
