If people call you a natural host; you should think of yourself as blessed. If they’ve actually told you this, you might be not only pretty good at organizing great parties, but may also be very relatable and friendly; making you the perfect host. But don’t sweat it if you’ve not been told that yet. Sometimes, things like parties tend to need a little practice. The more parties you host, the more comfortable you’d get with the task. And even though there is quite a bit of a difference between small, intimate and cozy parties and parties for a larger crowd, you should still include these kinds of parties to your “gaining experience” list. If you’re willing to take the plunge, and go for that big-crowd party that most people hide from hosting, we applaud your courage. Here are a few tips that may help you out.
- The venue of your party – if possible, try to host your party right at home. If necessary, you can even spill your party onto the garden; creating more space. The only issue with this is that you won’t be able to restrict your guests to one part of the house; so, if it gets very wild, you’ll be cleaning up after for days to come. If you feel like the guest list is just a little too long for a home party, opt for engagement venues Melbourne. Just make sure that you don’t go too extravagant.
- The food and the drink – regardless to whether you are planning on hosting your party at home or at function rooms, the food and the drinks will definitely cost you if you’re not careful about your choices. Since it’s a party, you don’t really have to “fill up” your guests. Choose appetizers that look good and taste good, but are not too hard to make (if you’re making the food yourself) or too expensive (if you’re using a caterer).

- The invitations – since it’s not a wedding or an engagement part, don’t hesitate to cut costs when it comes to the invitations. Choose simple yet inexpensive designs. You can also make use of technology here. If you’re good at video editing, try your hand out at video invitations. They are fun to make, and also a fun and quirky way to invite your guests!
- The decorations – apart from the food, the decorations are something that a lot of people splurge on when it comes to parties. While this may be alright when it comes to intimate parties with a small guest list, it only adds to the cost when it comes to larger parties. DIY at least some of the decorations, and try to have multi purposes for them…
