holiday cardAs seasons begin to change, and we start to redecorate our homes, the overwhelming urge to host a party begins to set in. We have pumpkin spice candles burning, cinnamon brooms tucked away around the home, and that crisp autumn air flowing through our open windows. With such a feel good setting, why suppress this urge?

However, there are a few more things you will be needing in order for your party to be a success. In an effort to have you named the best party thrower in town, we are going to share with you a few of our favorite party DO’s.

Party DO’s

As long as you have the list of do’s, why create a list of do not’s?

1. Make It a Bonfire

This is an ultimate part DO. If you want to have a get together where all of your friends can enjoy themselves, whether they are shy or boisterous, a bonfire is the perfect choice. Set some chairs around the fire, the ingredients for s’mores, and you will be on your way to a flawless party. However, you SHOULD always make sure bonfires are legal in your neighborhood before having one.

2. Play Good Music

This seems like a given, but you wouldn’t believe how many silent parties I’ve walked in on. It is human nature to feel more comfortable with the filler noise in the background. Create a playlist of music that you and your friends enjoy and let it play all night long. Make sure you keep the volume at a comfortable level, as to prevent your guests from shouting over one another.

3. Have Good Food

What is a party if there’s nothing to munch on? For those of you who would rather not cook for a large group of people, consider having your party catered. Kettleman’s Bagel Co. in Ottawa provides the best catering around. With everything from baked goods, to sandwiches, and even veggie / fruit platters. Everyone will love the food, so naturally, everyone will love your party.

4. Play Games

People often think that games are for children. When you’re having an “adult party” all you need is some alcohol. This is untrue. Outdoor games like horseshoes, cornhole, etc are perfect. They give your guests something to do even if they don’t know anyone. Also, for those who don’t like anything else that’s going on at your party, they will love being able to escape to the games area.
