Do you want your party to be fun, exciting and full of great people? Follow these steps!



1Pick a place. Where are you going to have a party? Will it be a big event, or a little get together? If the party will be held in your home, make sure to pick an area for the guests to sit, chat, and eat. Clean the area beforehand and tidy up to ensure that the guests are comfortable and won’t be touching any of your personal items (ex. children’s graded quizzes, private photos, mobile phones, children’s toys, or anything that your children, spouse, or you aren’t comfortable having other people see.)


2 Decide on a theme. Will it be for an occasion? If so, think what will please the guest of honour.
3 Determine a date/time for your party. If it’s a birthday party, most people try to have the party on that date. Also, make sure to pick a date where most of your guests are free.
4 Decide on a budget. Are you able to spend a lot of money on this or that kind of party. If you don’t have a boyfriend/girlfriend, then invite someone who you really click with. Do not, however, depend on this element to keep you company throughout the night. You’re the host so you ought to mingle with everyone invited if you can.
5 Take into consideration who it is you want to invite to your party. Not everyone wants to dance, not everyone wants to listen to the music, some people want to talk and relax. Accommodate for different interests and levels of social comfort with space planning if it is possible, and if applicable, different age groups.


6 Start picking the people. Only invite guests that you want. Only invite people who respect you, not kiss-ups. Invite people you would like to get to know better, and if you want your party to be big, tell them to bring their friends. Get as accurate a count as you can before the party so as to make certain you have the space, parking, food and drink to accommodate.
7 Make invitations or buy them. Pass them out within a reasonable time frame of notice. If you plan on instructing your invitees to bring friends, don’t send out the invitations too soon or you could end up with a bigger party population than you can handle.
8 Determine what food to provide. Your food choice packs a big punch in your party. If you don’t know what to get, ask around to see what your future party-attendees would like. Do not neglect drinks or chilled storage for these drinks. Don’t up the booze too much. You don’t want your place smelling like a dump.

9 What’s a party without music? Pick music that you think will be most agreeable to the spirit of your party and your guests. It’s a good idea to have an iTunes window open on your computer so you can download tunes that guests suggest. If you don’t have the money for iTunes and don’t have a lot of your own tunes, ask your guests to bring their own. You could also play a radio station that has whatever is hot, and call in with requests!
10 Set the mood/tone of the party with your music, lighting, decoration . If you want to have an energetic dance environment, have music, strobe lights, lasers, fog machines and maybe some video synchronized with your music.
11 Clean your house and clean yourself. Nobody likes a dirty party. It’s a good idea to have some cleaning stuff around, and stain stick just in case someone spills on themselves or your furniture. Make sure there is enough toilet paper! It may sound weird, but you don’t want the only memory of your party to be an empty tube, and you really don’t want someone you may not know using your hand towels.

12 Have some party games set up. This does not mean what it used to with pin the tail on the donkey or spin the bottle. Some games of everything as players deal with divorced parents, mediocre jobs/income, and marriage. It can be a real laugh.
Halo 3: This game is ONLY available on Xbox 360, but is extremely fun when playing multiplayer. I would recommend it for the Boys, but some girls are interested in it too. There are Three Game types you can play on this game. Forge Mode: You can spawn any vehicle or weapon or equipment or scenery whenever you want to use it. Custom Games, I like this one because, unlike forge, you don’t get all the guns and vehicles you want instantly, you need skill, I would recommend playing this if there are more people. And lastly, there’s Matchmaking (Xbox Live is required) In matchmaking you play online against other people around the world, I would recommend this one if less people are coming over. If you have more than 4 people coming over I would recommend taking turns or doing a System Link: That is where you hook up two Xbox 360’s together and play against each other. If you want to do this just ask a friend if he can bring his Xbox over.And Lastly,

Before the Party Make Several Map Variant and Game Variants so your friends won’t get bored playing A normal Map, another fun option is to have everyone make their own bases on forge than save and play it on custom games. VERY lastly, make sure you try the infection game type, it is extremely fun.
Rock Band: This game is available on multiple game systems with the objective of playing as members of a band with the use of the guitar, microphone and drum kit included with the game.
Guitar Hero series: This can be a one or two player game depending on which edition you choose. Like Rock Band, it uses its own controllers of the guitar nature to play through the game’s levels.
Dance Dance Revolution: This can be one or two player depending on what controllers you have available. Step to the music as directed by the arrows on the screen. Even if only a few people play this game, depending on which edition you choose, can provide some great music.
13 Have plans to address rules and guest safety.
14 Make sure you have a good time and enjoy it.



Always have extra room ready in your house in case someone needs to stay over.
Card making programs on your computer can be helpful, but if you don’t have one of these, just wing it
Make sure you talk to everyone and ask how they are doing to ensure everyone feels like they are getting enough attention. No one wants to sit all by themselves the entire party.
Invite your crush. You never know what may happen though do not get hung up on your crush’s presence. Remember, if something good does happen, great. If not, you haven’t lost anything.
If you aren’t creative, buy your invitations. Invitations set the tone of your party so choose wisely. And be sure to be personal by putting names on your invitations. This will improve your party’s attendance and make for a more memorable party.
Always invite a few more people than you plan on having at the party because it will make up for the gap of people that do not show up.
Always show up at the place of the party 2 and a half hours before the party starts to take care of decorations, cake, drinks, food, and music, etc. Make sure that everything is perfect.
Make sure you don’t invite someone because you feel like you have to. Invite them because you want to spend time with them.
Let people know about the party in advance! If people know about your party weeks in advance then this gives them a chance to make sure they do not plan anything on the day of the party.
Consider a theme. Try to pick something that goes with the season and has a catchy name. Grab a few decorations, conversation starters or party favors that match the theme. Invite people you like and/or know -inviting people due to their status won’t enhance the status of your party or its quality.





Don’t invite someone who is negative; they may bring your night down.
Never get in a fight at your own party.
Do not let guests invite their friends over without your approval first.
Try to avoid people who dislike other people on your guest list.
Don’t invite non-friends. They may ruin your party.
If you are under the age of 21, do not serve alcohol (in United States, the drinking age may be different abroad). Your party could be busted which means you would get in trouble with the police, your parents, and your friend’s parents. Your friends would be in trouble with their parents, too.
Don’t have drugs present. It can result in arrest, and trouble with your parents. It could result in trouble with your friends’ parents while they would be in trouble too.



The 5 Biggest Party Mistakes You May Be Making When You’re Hosting At Home

There’s nothing more satisfying than throwing a fabulous party. When your friends and family have a great time at your home and thank you for being a gracious host, you won’t even mind cleaning up afterwards. But pulling off a stellar shindig without a hitch isn’t always so easy. There’s a lot to remember to make sure it runs smoothly.

Here are five party mistakes we’ve all been guilty of and how to make sure we won’t make them again.

1. Making Everyone Stand, Awkwardly. We’ve all been there: You’re at a party, trying to find a place to lean so you can actually enjoy that hors d’oeuvre, but there’s nowhere to go.
Instead: Pull out anything that can be used as a seat — ottomans, footstools, anything — so guests can take a break now and then. Throwing a bigger event? Rent folding chairs.


2. Not Giving A Clear Time Frame. Will your guests have to block off their entire Saturday for your party? Or do you just want them over for a few hours? When no one knows, people will either awkwardly linger, or abruptly leave.
Instead: Note the hours you’ll be entertaining guests on your invitation.


3. Not Having Enough Food. You don’t have to serve dinner at your next cocktail party, but you should make sure to offer enough snacks so guests don’t immediately get tipsy after one martini.
Instead: When in doubt, pick up more chips and salsa. Or, outsource your appetizers by ordering a slew from your favorite take-out place.


4. Sending Unclear Invitations. Can your guests easily find your home? Do your guests know where to park, if you live in a busy area? These are the biggest unknowns when receiving an invite.
Instead: If you’re having more than a few close friends over, err on the side of overcommunicating. Let them know where they can park and any local landmarks for navigation.


5. The Standoff. No, you don’t have to hover in every guest’s conversations. But, without an introduction, some people might not mix as well as you’d like. This usually ends up in a “standoff” of two groups that won’t mingle, or worse, silence from all parties involved.
Instead: Introduce guests to each other when they arrive.
