As with any party, there is a difference between planning a party that is forgotten the next day versus one that will be remembered for a long time. If we are going to the trouble of hosting an adult party, let’s take the time to plan it well and make it truly memorable for all involved. Here’s an ultimate planning guide.
Pick the Guests – take the time to really think about who to invite. We want a good mix of people, some who are outgoing and talkative, along with others who are a little more reserved. The guest list can really make or break the party so consider how different people may interact and keep it interesting. It might be that the party is for all one sex, for couples or a mixture.
Select a Theme – adding a theme to your adult party makes for a ton of fun. Think of a theme that will suit the occasion and can be incorporated into the decorations, food and drinks. The theme can also be incorporated into games and other entertainment for guests. Ask guests to come dressed according to the theme as well.
Food and Drink – if the theme is selected, the food and drink can be themed as well. Otherwise, we can prepare the food ourselves or hire a caterer. Establish whether a full meal will be served or just finger food and nibbles. Lastly, make sure there are a variety of drinks for the guests or ask them to bring their own. Even if it is BYO, it is nice to serve a few special cocktails or a nice bottle of champagne to set the mood for the evening.
Entertainment – music is always a must for a great party. Select music suitable for the theme and mood of the party. We can also look to incorporate an adult party plan for something different. These can be based on adult toys, lingerie or some other product and are always fun (not to mention memorable).
Party Bag – consider giving guests a party bag, just like the kids get when they go to a party. This can serve as a reminder of the great night, while thanking our guests for coming and contributing to the party. A party bag can include a few small gifts and a thank you card. This personal touch will make sure the party isn’t forgotten quickly.
Hosting an adult party can be done by anyone, but to make a truly memorable night is not so easy. Follow the simple guidelines above, and it will be a party no-one forgets for a long time.
