Know who is coming
The key to a successful party is first of all for the host to know who will be coming to the party. Whether it is a party for adults only or where kids will be included, you the host will be doing yourself a huge favor if you do your best to ensure all your guest acknowledge they will be attending or not. That said, that also means you have to send out invites early. This will give your guest enough time to decide on whether to attend or not.

Prepare a menu for all
If you know who is coming then it will probably help you in preparing the menu for the day. If you are inviting very close friends and family, you may already know their likes and dislikes and any special dietary requirements. If you will be having guest with whom you are not very close, do not hesitate to ask if they have any special dietary requirements. This will help ensure that all your guests are correctly catered for the day.
Prepare activities for the day
Most times when we invite people over, we just assume that the food and drinks should be enough to keep the guest busy. However, we are often surprised to find that once the guest have had something to eat and drink, they crave for other activities or they may start leaving earlier than the host anticipated. To avoid such situations, it is advisable to look for fun activities that guest could get involved in during the course of the day or evening. You could get them to do karaoke for some old school songs. Even if you don’t have a karaoke machine there are karaoke for hire that you can get for the day. Other fun activities could include the devils baskets and guess.
The above are just a few tips that those planning to host friends and family can use. Note that this is not an all inclusive lists as there are many different ideas. However, if you want to succeed, you have to start planning early and ensure that those you expect to see on the day have schedules that allow for that.
