Your group enjoys a good party. How do you make sure you host a good party? In real estate, they say success is “location, location, location”. In partying it’s “people, people, people.” In real estate, not all businesses are located on the choice spot. And in partying, you have to make consolations for the people.

Let’s assume you are preparing for a party of 50 or more people. That’s a considerable sized party. Even if it is just friends and co-workers, and everyone expects to bring extras to make the party better, you have to have some control. If you aren’t hiring a party planner, you must do these few steps to make sure your party is great, and that your friends and co-workers have a incredible time, and are safe.

Have the menu professionally prepared

With such a large number of people to feed, it is quite difficult to ensure food safety, and quality in a home environment. Caterers and restaurants are well prepared for making buffet amounts delicious food and have it ready in time for your party. Additionally, see if the caterer has a person that will serve and clean up. It will be well worth the price to keep your place tidy and organized.

Hire a bartender

Everyone imagines they are a bartender. Even worse is when you as host allow your co-workers to tend bar. Who sets limits? Do you have any idea what the financial and not to mention the mental cost of allowing someone to over drink and then get involved in a collision? A professional bartender can keep this under control and assure your guests have professionally made drinks.

Hire a dj/kj for dancing or singing

A karaoke host in control of the music will make sure the music hog that wants to play or sing only their kind of music won’t ruin your party for the other guests.

Have professional entertainment

A magician, mentalist, psychic, fortune teller, black jack dealer or any of a number of entertainment choices will make sure your guests can find something to enjoy and share with the other guests. Don’t over do it, though. One entertainer with the appropriate music entertainment should be enough.
