How to Host a Party Right
Now, you may be thinking to yourself that the title of this article is so basic and so simple that it doesn’t really deserve an article of its own. Well, you’re more than welcome to think that way, but unfortunately, just like with common sense, this isn’t very common.
A lot of people think that if they’re going to host a party, they just need to pick up the phone, call a lot of people or send the same text message over and over again, or better yet, put an event notification on Facebook and call it a day. They think that they just need to communicate with people, round people up, serve some drinks, and everybody’s going to have a good time.
Now, it would be nice if the world operated that way. It would be nice if hosting a party were that simple. Unfortunately, if you’ve ever tried your hand in hosting a party, regardless of the size of your party, it’s going to suck if you don’t have any form of advance planning.
To make matters worse, even if you plan ahead, if you don’t pay attention to the right details, as well as getting the right materials and drinks and food for your party, chances are quite good that it will fall flat on its face.
You want to host a party that people will continue to talk about for a long time to come. You want to be seen as the next great host in your block, in your city or your district. You want to make a name for yourself. At the very least, you want to have people continue to talk about your event because they had a truly great time.
Well, none of this is going to happen. In fact, a lot of this is going to go straight down the toilet if you screw one element up of hosting a great party. I’ve listed below the things that you need to do so you can rest assured that your party is going to be something that people will continue to talk about for a long, long time to come.
The first thing that you need to do is pick the right audience. Think of a party as a performance art. You’re not going to invite the world because whatever you are performing or the signals you will be sending out is probably not targeted to that broad of an audience.
A little bit of targeting goes a long way. So there has to be a theme that speaks to the needs of that targeted group. The more targeted the group, the higher the chance people would have a good time.
There has to be a large enough percentage of the people in your party that know each other. This level of familiarity can go a long way in ensuring that people start enough conversations, and this will spill over into new introductions to strangers.
With the right blend of acquaintances, intimate friends, longtime friends and strangers, your party or event can become quite successful. Screw this up and it’s going to be like pulling teeth. It’s anybody’s guess whether people can connect. It’s anybody’s guess whether people will have a good time.
Make it easier on yourself by increasing the level of familiarity to a certain degree so that it makes it easier for people to connect.
I know this sounds self serving because this is a Seagram’s Gin website, but I would be doing you a major disservice if I leave this out because you don’t want to be associated with low quality food. You don’t want your event to be dismissed or even insulted because you served the wrong drinks.
Make no mistake about it, gin is not created equal. Let’s just get that out of the way. You want gin from a tried and proven company with a long history of excellence as far as distillation and flavor is concerned. And that’s why Seagram’s Gin has always been at the top.
