Hosting a party is an art. Knowing how to make a fun, exciting, and fulfilling time for a group of people isn't just second nature to everyone. It's something you come to learn with time.
All of the little unique things that you do for your guests can elevate the party from a gathering to an experience. Making people feel thought about and cared for while they are at your event is a lovely way to say — thanks for taking time out and sharing it with me. Converserly, when you're at a party where there is nothing to snack on, no place to relax, or poor ambiance, it can make the party end faster than it began. You don't want your party to feel like an obligation, but rather something people are looking forward to attending.
I have definitely been to a number of parties where the host did nothing to make their guests feel welcome, even to the point that the tv was suddenly turned on and everyone just sat there staring at it until they fell asleep. Not my idea of a fun social gathering.
So for all you party hosting experts out there, what fabulous tips do you have for people to up their game? Please share your ideas for making future parties especially memorable.
