Be smart and think ahead

The most important thing to do when hosting a home birthday party is to plan ahead in order to save time and avoid spending too much money at once. So, obviously, the first step is to set a budget and make a plan – pick a date and make a guest list. As soon as you know the exact number of guests you can start making a shopping list and plan the menu within your budget limits. A smart way to make sure you have enough of everything is, well, to buy a just a bit more than you originally planned.

Pick a theme and dress code, decorate everything

Start by picking a theme for the party so that you can decorate your home and create a perfect party atmosphere for your guests, and obviously, yourself. Why pick a theme – well, it is much easier to decorate when you when you have one.

For example, you can organize a DISCO B-day party. All your friends should put sexy disco clothes and masks and sneakers with LED lights. This defenitely will boost the party mood.

Or throw a Great Gatsby inspired birthday party, put on a flapper dress and rhinestone tiara and dance the night away. Ask your guests to dress up accordingly and serve chilled margaritas and finger foods – it is not a dinner party, it is a dance all night one! Rent a Photo Booth Me bespoke booth, play with the 1920s inspired props and create an unforgettable party!

Plan the menus

Prepare party foods that go well together with your party theme and print out the menus. Think of smart new names for your recipes and let your guests guess what they will eat. Find easy online recipes and make the courses before your guests arrive so that you can concentrate on socializing and hosting instead of cooking. There is no need to complicate things, you can make simple recipes and decorate the food in a specific way to make it extraordinary. Play with different flavors, prepare exotic food such Chinese or Indian and add spices – to spice it up a bit!

If you don’t want a dinner party, make sure to have enough finger foods and concentrate on how to present drinks – for example, create customized cocktails for each guest.

You’re never too old for a cake

And don’t forget about the cake and candles! Luckily, the internet made it easy for all of us who dislike cooking and baking because now you use online cake delivery and instead of making a mess in your kitchen and losing too much time on preparing sweets and baking a perfect cake, you can get a cake by the time you finish your coffee.
