Who wouldn’t like a great party? Throwing a party is a great way to gather with family, catch up with friends and have some fun. The occasion could be anything; a birthday, anniversary, graduation or simply because you feel like it. Parties can be stressful matters since you hold the full responsibility of making it a hit or a flop. You will have to look into so many aspects such as décor, food, music etc. so here are some of the things to do when throwing a party.
- Party budget
Your budget will depend on the scale of the party. Very special occasions can be celebrated a bit lavishly than others. For example, spend a bit more on 21st birthday cakes for girls Auckland since this milestone isn’t going to come again in life. Plan for each and every item, and separate specific amounts for each of them. Decide on what you are willing and able spend, as you need to continue with your daily life after the party. Stick to your budget since going over the top is of no use if you are throwing a simple house party. Always look for unnecessary costs you can cut off.
- Pick a theme
Themes make parties so much more fun. Select your décor, food and entertainment to match the theme. You can even ask everyone to dress a particular way and come. For example, if you pick a pirates theme, you can download some pirate music, bring some vintage wine bottle, ask your guests to dress like pirates, get a pirate cake from nice cakery Auckland, prepare food that pirates would have and create a complete ambience. Organize a few pirate themed games too, give your guests pirate names and simply have fun. Themes make it easier to pick décor, food and entertainment.
The most cost effective venue is your home, however if it isn’t spacious enough, you can always go for a small restaurant or banquet hall. Have a rough idea of how many you will invite to compare with the halls’ capacity. The advantage of having at your own home is you have more freedom; however you never know when the neighbours might complain. Even though outside places costs more, will get everything done. You simply have to welcome the guests, mingle with them and have a good time. If at home, you will be busy preparing dinner, showing a million people where the washroom is, yelling countless times not to break anything etc. You better inform your neighbours well in advance.
