Monsoons are usually a bummer for the outdoorsy type. So the next time the rains threaten your party plans, then just make that transition indoors. It is as simple as that. You may have attended an array of house parties, but here’s how to make yours even more memorable.
Hashtags are fun
This is 2018. And 2018 is all about having some fun, and frolic with hashtags. So get into the groove and disclose those hashtags to your guests so that your after-party photos are all over social media. This is also a way to organise the photos because we all know your guests come from different spheres of life, so they won’t necessarily be each others’ friends on social media.
A signature cocktail is a must
This is a piece of great advice that almost always works. Spice up your party with a signature drink that will make your friends gush and go back to the bar for more and more. Here’s a list of five easy-to-make cocktails to enliven your party. Likewise, you can hire a bartender for the same if it is too much for you to handle on your own.
An element of surprise always works
Want to see your guests in an elated mood? Then add an element of surprise to your get-together. An art/book installation to keep your guests occupied is a good idea, and so is arranging for a DIY photo booth with fun accessories like fake moustaches, hats and the like. This not only keeps your guest occupied, but also spreads good camaraderie among strangers. Another idea is to hire a stand-up comedian to jazz up that party.
Goody bags for adults
Parting gifts aren’t only for children. A bag full of goodies that may include bracelets, stationary items, bubble bath, music CDs, et al is the greatest idea to see that excitement brimming on the faces of all your guests.
The kitchen is where the real party begins
If you’re looking for a way to help your guests mingle with each other (especially those who do not know each other prior to the party), then invite them to the kitchen. Create stations where guests are required to “make their own pasta” and some-such items. You can go around helping each one of them and do you know what's even better? Make chits, and pair the ones who do not know each other to build a rapport.
