Sometimes a lame party can be worse than no party at all. Great parties, on the other hand, can be memorable nights that keep people talking for weeks. Here are four signs of a lame party and how to avoid them:
1. No Preparation
Failing to properly plan a party can ruin the party before it even begins. What kind of party will it be? Is it a casual get-together or an all-night rager? Theme, size, guest list, and entertainment are all factors to consider before commencing. Be sure to have enough food, drinks, and party favors beforehand so no one is stuck making runs to the store after the fun has already begun.
2. No Mingling
The first downfall of any party is a lack of mingling between guests. You don’t want everyone staring at their smartphones and then leaving a few hours later. A great party gives people a break from the drudgery of their normal lives and allows them to let loose. Games are a great way to break the ice between guys and gals. A movie projector can give everyone something to look at and talk about. Have ample seating and space so that groups of people have room to interact.
3. No Dancing
It might not even be possible to have a party without music. Even the most formal dining affairs have some mellow background jazz. Great parties make music the centrepiece. A live band or DJ is a great way to get everyone relaxed and on the same page. You don’t want a concert, but you do want people on their feet. Don’t forget about disco lights or karaoke to take it to the next level.
4. No Memories
Sometimes, the best part of a party is a few days later when you finally see the pictures of what happened. A photo booth will memorialize the good times for those that want a keepsake. A caricature artist or professional photographer could also be a great addition depending on the formality of the party.
