Be Festive – Whether you are throwing a Fourth of July bash or a high school graduation party, be sure to decorate! Setting the scene will make for a fun event that your guests will enjoy! Either buy cost effective decorations that you can use and toss when the party is over or make some DIY décor with items you already have around the house. Regardless of how you choose to decorate, the last thing you’ll want to do is clutter up your home with party decorations that you’ll use once a year or once in general.

Music – What’s a party without music? Always be sure to keep your guests in mind. Vary your playlist and be sure to address the music tastes of everyone on your guest list. Factor in the chance that your guests may overstay their welcome. Make sure your playlist is long enough to last throughout the entire party.

Have Something for Everyone – If the guests at your party are going to be diverse, make sure your party is too! While the adults are sipping on sangria, have games or summer activities to keep the kids occupied such as a slip ‘n’ slide.

Purchase Disposable – Just because you’re hosting a party doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy it too. There’s nothing worse than hosting a party and being stuck in the kitchen washing dishes and cleaning the entire time. Once everyone is done eating, all you have to worry about is that they threw their plates, cups, etc. in the garbage. Also be sure to have enough garbage bags. Factor in at least one large garbage bag for every ten guests. Large parties with an abundance of trash can be easily taken care of by renting a dumpster from Cali Carting.

Take Summer Weather into Account – Summer days can be hot, and summer nights can be buggy. Be sure to offer ways for your guests to stay cool during the day and keep the bugs away at night. Tiki torches are a cool and effective way to keep your yard lit and bug-free once the sun goes down.
