Come, Lets Party at Home!

It is Christmas and New Year time and all the restaurants and food outlets may be overflowing with party lovers. So, how about hosting a party at home and making it fun? You could have the entire night and it could do some good on your wallet as well! Hosting a party at home is not a daunting task as it may appear. Here are a few tips to host a fun-filled, entertaining and a limited budget party at home.

• Choose a day that is convenient for your guests and most importantly, a day when you have enough time to make pre-party preparations.
• Plan the food menu, theme and events for the party in advance. Keep it simple!
• Send out an invite and get a fair idea on the number of guests who will be joining you so that you can make the arrangements accordingly.
• Go over your checklist once again on the day before your party to ensure you have everything taken care of.
• Make sure you welcome each and every guest at the gate/door on your party night. They would love the gesture!
• Break the ice by introducing them to each other and set the mood for the party. A dance party or some entertaining games are a few ideas to keep them occupied!
• Try not to devote all your time to one particular guest, even if he/ she is very special to you.
• Encourage your guests to sit wherever they desire and provide adequate seating for all your guests.
• Music is a must!! Put on some music and pump it loud. No party is complete without good music. This will also keep the guests distracted and bring life to a quiet atmosphere.
• Be a wise planner; Make sure you do most of it on your own so you are sure of all the details. Take help whenever you can.
• If you decide to prepare your own food, start early to make sure you're set by the time the party begins.
• Allow enough time for the guests to arrive before serving a meal. Buffet style can make everyone feel at ease and encourage socializing.
• Keep the beverages area separate.
• Count your serving plates and glasses to make sure there are enough for everyone. Go for disposable tableware to lessen your work of cleaning the dishes after the party.
• Include a few healthy food options in the menu. Cook something different so that it could become a topic for discussion.
• Always make sure there is ample food for everyone. Fruit platters will usually do the trick.
• Don't pressurize yourself. Even if it is not perfect, no one will mind.

Remember, if you are having a good time at the party, others will definitely have one too. Smiling is the key and it will take you a long way to becoming a good host. Smile, dance, eat and be merry! Host and enjoy a fun-filled party!
