The number one rule of hosting a party: plan ahead. If you plan on entertaining guests within the upcoming days or weeks, you should start planning everything now; food, drinks, entertainment, etc. The more you do ahead of time, the more you will be able to relax and enjoy your own party. Use these four tips to host a party you and your guests are sure to enjoy.
Make punch. A bowl of punch offers the good time of a cocktail party without the need to make dozens of individual drinks throughout the night. Just make sure you have plenty of ice and a big enough punch bowl to get the party started. Here are 25 great adult punch recipes, courtesy of Cosmopolitan.
Clean ahead of time. You want to do as little as possible on the day of your party so you can spend your time enjoying the company of your friends and family. Clean your home for your guests the night before to save yourself precious time on the day of the party. Start at your home’s front door and work your way in, cleaning all surfaces and vacuuming the floors.
Buy paper goods. After you have thrown a successful party, you will inevitably have to clean up after your guests. One of the ways to make this process quicker is by serving your food with paper goods. Eliminate doing dishes and spend more of your time relaxing after the awesome party you just hosted.
Make foods which can be reheated. Like previously mentioned, you want to do as little prep work on the day of the party as possible. Like cleaning, cooking for your party can also be done in advance. Some dishes can be prepared one or two nights ahead of time and reheated on the day of your party. Click here for a list of 20 freezable recipes that your guests are sure to love.
