Having your own apartment means freedom – you have the place all to yourself. No one in the neighbourhood can tell you what to do because it is yours after all. But the best thing about owning one is that you get to throw a party.
Are you planning to celebrate your first work? Or perhaps your long-hauled project has finally been recognized at work? Instead of just going for the usual stuff like silent disco, why not try to throw a party at home? And if you have no idea where to start, there is nothing to worry about. Here are some of the many types of parties you can do at home!
- Housewarming Party
Housewarming Party is a total give-in. But make no mistake: it is one of those types that many people tend to forget about. What they do not know is that this party is the best way to get some of the best stuff for your turf. All you need to do is invite your friends and other people over some food and drinks, all of which are free. But in order for them to get access, they all need to bring some small gift. Seriously, they will not mind it. They will instead be happy to oblige!
- Dinner Party
If you want to class up a bit, you can invite some people over for a dinner party. It does not have to be extravagant, though. If you are short on budget, you can always go for a potluck. It is where the people you invite will bring their own favourite dishes for everyone to share and enjoy. And the best thing about the dinner party is that you can invite as many people as you want. You do not even have to put up a dress code. It could as usual as you like it.
- “Find Your Drink” Party
Unlike the aforementioned, this one right here is ideal for people who find going to bars a bit intimidating. It is ideal for people who are going to drink or experience what a party is for the first time. More importantly, it is meant for people who have no idea what exactly to order at a bar. “Find your drink” party is definitely perfect. You can ramp up the even with some cheap drinks or go mix up a couple of pitchers, so you can introduce a few different kinds of popular drinks.
- Themed Party
Seriously, if you have not tried themed parties before, you are missing a lot. And there is nothing to worry about it, especially since it can be anything you want. Do you want a party where all of your guests are going to wear their favourite Anime characters? Or perhaps you want a theme party based largely on a TV show or movie? It is really up to you. Not only is it easy to put together, but also offers you a handful of options when it comes to planning.
Just simply start by picking a theme that you like. Let your friends know about it. For the design of the house, go for decors that mimic the theme. In reality, there is no need for you to spend so much on decorations. Just make the setting simple. Let the costumes of your visitors speak for it. Remember, however, that the success of this party heavily depends on the aspects of the theme itself. So from costumes to food to music to decorations, they all must be consistent with them you are trying to put up.
- Beer Olympics
The idea here is pretty straightforward: You just have to let your guests compete in dozens of famous drinking games. It could be anything from flip cup to beer pong just about anything else you can think of. Make sure to encourage everyone to join and select their respective teams. If someone is not part, make sure to involve him. This is how the spirit of the party can be enlightened. More importantly, you must be ready to prepare a deluge of drinks – you are going to need a lot of them! If you want, you can introduce an opening and closing ceremony to liken it to the real Olympics event.
