OK, you?re having a party. You have the guest list prepared. You have a good idea of the menu. You even have a good idea of who you?re going to invite. Now for the really important stuff. The party supplies.
Now, don?t pretend you have no idea of what party supplies are. I?m talking streamers, poppers? and those funny costumes that everyone thinks are great on the night but cause so much embarrassment (Only joking). Seriously, though, some great accessories can really add a touch of fun to any party, even a dinner party, as long as it isn?t too formal. Even if the party isn?t fancy dress, the host dressing up in a costume for part of the evening can make for a real talking point.
And as for streamers, it doesn?t have to be a Christmas or New Year party to get them out. A wild throwing about of some paper toward the end of the evening is always worth a giggle. (Try to ensure your guests help to tidy up afterwards and do watch the goldfish bowl!) Same with the poppers. Make the night go with a bang.
And don?t forget the more mundane stuff, like coasters, or napkins. A good supply of coasters can protect the varnish on that new coffee table. And napkins are essential to help clear up mess, which is almost inevitable.
Talking of drinks, there?s one thing which is almost as inevitable as a spilled drink, and that?s to not have enough glasses, or not have enough of a particular type of glass. The solution is simple. Rent some glasses for the party. Many companies will deliver and pick up later. This is one less headache to think about.
So whatever you do, don?t forget the party supplies, and don?t forget to have fun.
