party in just six very easy steps


menu choices to you, and attendees can vote on what they want. If you’re doing it by yourself, you’ll need to write a few lists of the food you want to serve - the easiest option would be one in the style of a buffet. You’ll need to write a few lists of what you want to serve, as well as a shopping list for ingredients. See if you can rope in some other people to help you, as it’s a big responsibility for one person alone. Once you’ve got your list and know what you need, it might be wise to order online and have it delivered. Supermarkets


are great for online shopping, and many often have special offers on to save you money.


5. Decide on the beverages It’s not a party if there aren’t any


drinks, so you’re going to need to know which drinks to get and how much you’ll need. As a general rule, to prevent drunken mishaps, limit people to two alcoholic drinks for the first hour and then one per hour after that. If you’re providing table wine, then it is generally considered correct to allow two glasses (half a bottle) per person. People are usually less fussy about drinks when they’re free so don’t worry about catering to everyone’s tastes. Just pick a few different alcoholic drinks


- it will save you a lot of headache. Remember to provide water and soft drinks - some guests won’t wont to drink, or won’t be able to. You also need to make sure that those who are drinking alcohol are doing so safely, and that means making sure there are non-alcoholic drinks available for them too.


6. Plan the entertainment for the evening


For some people, good music


and a space to dance is enough, but if it’s in your budget, there’s no harm in increasing your expenditure to accommodate more entertainment on the night. Examples of extra entertainment include a poker table, a photobooth or even karaoke.
