When was the last time that you were invited to a party? Not a kid’s party, but a real adult party that combines fun and good spirit? If you can’t remember, then it’s probably time to hold one of those parties. After all, you’re never too old to have fun, and it’s unfair to let kids have all of it! So, get your address book ready, and start inviting friends for to your party. But first of all, get the food, drinks, décor and games set up! Here’s your party DIY for grownups and with still as much of the fun and only half the troubles.
Get The Party Food Ready
Forget all the cherished memories of your childhood with jelly puddings, colorful sandwiches and brightly colored fruit juices. Unless you are planning on inviting your five-year-old neighbors, you want something a little more grownup for an adult party. However, adult party doesn’t mean that you have to pick dull recipes. For a start, don’t choose anything that you would pack in your lunchbox during the week: No crisps, no pizza, no wraps or anything of that sort. While you don’t want to cook something too sophisticated that would turn the party into a dining event, you can make a buffet with simple salads, such as MyGreatRecipe pasta salad, and warm dishes. This would keep the food feeling friendly and yet exciting, because everyone loves a buffet!
Has Anybody Said Party Drink?
Do you know what makes adult parties better than any other party? It’s the booze! However, avoid preparing a cool box full of bottles of beer. While this is a party for adult, there is no need to go back to students lifestyle and cheap alcohol options. You need to remember that most adults nowadays will take the car to go out in the evening, consequently, you need to limit the presence of alcohol. In short, focus on one good option, such as a delicious cocktail that you can prepare for your guests, and leave it at one glass only. You can prepare soft drinks for the rest of the evening, such as flavored water for example.
Set The Party Décor
What makes the difference between a party and an evening with friends is the décor. Just as you would prepare a décor for your kid’s birthday party, what is stopping you from planning a little imaginary world for the evening? A great favorite is to used balloons filled with confetti, or to hang your decorations to the ceiling and the walls. If you are planning your party outside, you can impress your guests with a bucket of ice to keep the drinks cool and a cute wooden table in the middle of the garden.
There Are Still Some Fun Party Games For Grownups
It might seem difficult to picture an exciting adult party without a lot of alcohol. But this is because your memories of parties might date back from your student years! In truth, there are plenty of social games that are not only perfectly suitable for parties but that can help to break the ice in a group where some guests don’t know everybody. For example, playing games that involve discussions, to find out the truth and the lies for example, can be a great way to get people to know each other in a relaxed atmosphere.
