You can always throw a party but how can you make it extra memorable that the celebrant and all the guests can one day remember it as the best among all the party celebrations they have ever witnessed? Aiming to host the best party celebration is quite overwhelming as that means more than just planning an event. It is about creating beautiful memories that will last a lifetime. Here's how to throw a fun and memorable party.
- Begin by focusing on the occasion and the guest of honor. All the preparations required for a successful party are dependent on the type of occasion you are hosting and how well you know the celebrant. Is it a stag party, bridal shower, baby shower, debut party, kiddie party, birthday party, welcome party, or send-off party for your best friend, grandmother, brother, office mate, etc? When you plan the event, your primary goal is to make the guest of honor the happiest celebrant and that is no difficult feat if you know him well because you can arrange a party according to his interests. Remember to include his favorite food, favorite music, and of course favorite people who make his day. If you are not too familiar with the celebrant's tastes, you can always refer to his family or friends. Ask around before you start with the rest of the planning.
- Create a planner. Unless you hire an events planner that caters to various party packages such as kids celebrations, singles parties, dinner celebrations and the like you need to create a planner or timetable to help you organize all tasks relative to the event from the budget, invitations, theme, decorations, rental arrangements, menu, parlor games, to the program. Even an expert on planning events does not simply rely on memory or word of mouth. With a functional timetable, you do not miss a task. Regardless of how big or small the size of the party is, using a timetable will help you run your event smoothly.
- Create an element of surprise. You can choose to make the event itself a surprise which means you will conjure with family and friends but the celebrant does not know that there is a party coming up. Bring a surprise in the form of a gift or special person whom the celebrant has been missing for years. Party celebrations that are remembered as the best are usually the ones with beautiful or thoughtful surprises that people will never forget.
- Carefully plan the menu and entertainment. Food and fun activities make everybody enjoy parties. To make the event extra special for the celebrant, make sure to include his favorite cuisine. Serve food that everyone will enjoy and prepare games, music, and other surprises. Let everyone circulate.
Never forget to have pictures taken during party celebrations. While you can hire a photographer to capture candid and special moments, you can always assign a friend or member of the family to do the job. Photographs are memories you can always revisit and one way to document the best party celebration.
