With the UK having celebrated freedom day, it has many of us looking to celebrate the things that we haven’t been able to do in the past few months. We can now make up for all the lost celebrations, birthdays, anniversaries and baby showers that we weren’t able to do while we are in lockdown. We can see our families, have people inside our homes again and celebrate in ways that we used to before we had to worry about Covid and lockdown. If you are looking to plan any kind of social event and make up for everything that we lost in the past few months then luckily we have put together our top tips on how to throw a great party.
Tips For Planning A Social Event
1. Think Of A Theme
The best parties have a theme and that is why it’s important to think carefully about what you would like to base your party on. There are many themes out there, from a tropical theme to Great Gatsby, the noughties and many more. You can theme your outfits, your decorations, your food and even your cocktails. You can get special lightings such as LED string lights or other lights from Lepro – it can be a good idea to check out Pinterest for some ideas too! Make sure to give people enough notice to find a costume, sort their hairstyles and get fully involved!
2. Decide On A Great Music Playlist
Music is an important part of any party and you want to make sure that you plan a playlist ahead of time. This will give you a chance to think of the songs that everyone will love and will ensure that they get dancing. Think of the songs that will best suit different parts of the evening, from early on when you want more chilled songs, to more dance songs as the evening rolls on and progresses.
3. Try Not To Overthink It
After a long time of not being able to get together, it is important not to overthink it. Everyone will just be happy to all be together and be able to catch up and appreciate each other’s company. With so much to talk about, the conversation will flow much easier than you might expect and people will likely be in the mood for dancing and socialising. Remember that the little things you might be stressing about will be things that others won’t even notice.
4. Think About The Venue
When throwing a party, the venue is super important. Decide if you want to throw the party in your house or if you want to hire a venue. You are going to want to book ahead of time to avoid disappointment so be sure to do your research!
This is just a few of the top tips that can help you to throw a great party. By implementing these into your party planning you will find that you have a great time and will enjoy it as much as you can.
