Sometimes it is hard to define exactly what separates a good party from a great party. Usually the first thing you should think about is the music. Even if you don’t immediately notice it, music sets the entire tone of for the party. Whether the music is softly playing in the background, or you have a rocking dance floor, creating the perfect playlist takes work.
Understanding the Audience
The first step to getting the music at your party perfect is considering your audience. First off, exactly what type of party are you hosting? Is it a casual party, perhaps and outdoor BBQ? Or is it something more formal like a cocktail party? Depending on the party, you guests are going to have a certain set of expectations. While surprising them could be fun and interesting, it could also bring your party to a screeching halt! Match the playlist with the audience with the event and you can’t go wrong.
Now that you know the vibe you are going to be going for, you have to create an actual playlist. This is the hard part. Not everyone is a music expert or has an extensive library of music to choose from. Online steaming services can be a huge help, and most of them are free. Pandora and Spotify are two popular options. Choose an artist whose musical sensibilities you know will fit in with your party. These streaming services will allow you to build a radio station based off of that artist. Now you can sit back, relax, and let the play list build itself.
Easing Guests In
A last piece of advice, ease guests in to the night. Don’t crank up the volume and overwhelm them right when they arrive. When there are fewer people in your home, the music will be more noticeable as well. As more guests arrive and conversation grows, you can start raising the volume and the mood a little bit.
