How to Throw an Extravagant Party at Your Home

Many people shy away from hosting a large-scale party at their homes. To outsiders, what seems simple can be a daunting job for the average homeowner. It would help if you decided what you want to serve, how much you will cook, and how to organize your house so it doesn’t look like a hurricane swept through after the party. We’ve put together tips for hosting an extravagant party at your home, from decorations and BBQ to hair and clothing rules.

1. Decide on the Theme of the Party

You need to decide what type of party you want to throw. Is it going to be formal or casual? Will there be kids around? Do you want everyone dressed up? These are all things that need to be decided before you go further with your plans.

2. Plan and Make Sure to Be Fully Prepped

Plan, plan and plan some more! You need to have everything marked off your checklist to have your party run smoothly. This includes food, drinks, music, and entertainment if necessary. Have someone else handle these things while you focus on getting other items ready for the party. The most important part is to make sure that you have everything ready before your guests arrive. First impressions are everything.

3. Invite Only People You Know.

If you’re hosting a party for the first time, invite-only people you know well. This way, if anything happens during the event that makes someone feel uncomfortable, they’ll be able to leave without feeling awkward about it later — or worse yet, being forced out of your house against their will by someone else who doesn’t know them as well as you do.

4. Get Started Early

Please make sure that everything is prepared before guests arrive so that they can focus on having fun rather than cleaning up after themselves afterward. For example, if there’s going to be alcohol served at your party, don’t wait until the last minute to purchase it — buy enough so that everyone gets what they need.

5. Entertainment

If someone wants to sing karaoke but doesn’t have a mic or other equipment. You can buy or rent microphones and speakers at most electronics stores such as Best Buy or Radio Shack for $50-100 each depending on quality and features such as Bluetooth capability and wireless connectivity capabilities like Apple AirPlay that allow users to stream audio wirelessly from their iPhones, iPads or iPods.

6. Theme and Décor

When hosting a party in your own home, you can use your residence to inspire the party’s themes and décor. Look at some pictures of design ideas. This can give you an idea of the right color scheme and palate. 

You could get help putting together ideas or host a party planning event with friends or family to help brainstorm the best party ideas that would work well in your home. The people whom you invite should also be a reflection of your home design theme. Think about how their personalities fit with the music to ensure everyone will fit in and have fun.

7. Keep the Sun Outta the Fun

If you’re the type of person who likes to throw parties that last all day long and have lots of people over, then you should consider renting shade tarps. This will help protect your guests from the sun, while they’re sitting on your patio. It will also help at night by creating breakers between the evening breeze and your guests.

There are several reasons why having shade tarps at your backyard party can be beneficial. First of all, they protect from the sun’s rays so that your guests don’t get burned by the harsh heat of the sun. 

Secondly, they keep guests cool on hot days and allow them to enjoy themselves without worrying about getting overheated or dehydrated due to high temperatures. Here are some tips to help you plan your next big bash at home.
