Avoid  Hosting  Party Mistakes

We have spent a lot of time on this blog discussing good ideas for parties. There are nearly endless ways for you to delight, entertain, and bring joy to your guests. Unfortunately, there are also a few things you can do to bring your party to a screeching halt. These are party hosting mistakes you may not even think about until it is already too late. Here’s a list of party hosting mistakes you should absolutely avoid.

Not Breaking the Ice

This is a huge mistake that is really easy to overlook on the day of the party. You are going to have a million things to worry about, sometimes introducing your guest to each other slips your mind. Remember, if they don’t already know one another, you are the common element linking everyone at your party. Make introductions and get the conversation going. This will end up paying huge dividends for the rest of the night.

Trying to do too much

We see this constantly, and we totally understand. When you are hosting a party you want everything to be absolutely perfect. No matter how much you plan and prepare ahead of time, this is still not a one person job. Enlist the help of a spouse, friend or family member. If you take on too much by yourself, people will be able to feel your stress. We wouldn’t be surprised if your guests and friends are actually excited to help out!

Plan for Music

Music is one of the best ways to set the tone for a party. You can create a playlist to fit any mood you desire. Popular music service like Spotify can be a huge help as they curate rich, interesting playlist for a wide range of occasions.
