Life is all about memories. And we make the best memories when we spend quality time with our friends and family.
If it has been quite a long time keeping up with your nearest and dearest ones, having a small get-together can be a fun idea to catch up.
Hosting a get-together shouldn’t be a challenge if you plan it ahead of time. Any party, big or small, usually requires a welcoming atmosphere, music, and delicious food. And though event planners can help pull off everything, the cost may be exorbitant.
An alternative option could be to let CookinGenie prepare your food while you take care of the other details.
Here are some quick tips to help you plan your upcoming get-together and explain how CookinGenie can be your ideal culinary companion.
Having a theme for the party helps bring all the aspects of the occasion together, be it food, drinks, music, dress, or decoration. As a host, it allows you to blend extra fun into the celebration, let your creative juices flow, and reflect in everything you do with decoration, entertainment, and food. And, don’t make it a surprise; let your guests know your plans, so they know how to dress and what to expect.
Creating a guest list is crucial. It helps you determine the number of attendees to expect and set the date per the notable guests’ availability. Once you have that list, send invitations. The best way would be to call each guest personally. And while doing so, make sure to know their dietary restrictions and preferences like veg/non-veg, halal, kosher, vegan, etc. All this information will help you customize their experience and plan your party better.
No party or get-together can be fun without some colorful lights and groovy background music. With a combination of String Lights, Lanterns, and Tiki Torches, you can easily create the perfect mood and atmosphere for your indoor and outdoor parties alike. Also, arranging good party songs shouldn’t be a task, thanks to YouTube and apps like DJ51, PlayDeck, BeDJ, etc., that allow multiple people to add to the playlist and get the party going.
Here is what the thumb rule states: two drinks per person for the first two hours and one drink per person for each following hour. You may want to ensure that you have all the basic drinks that an ideal home bar generally has – Beer, Whiskey, Rum, Gin, Vodka, Tequila, and Wine.
However, don’t forget to have Coke, Club Soda, Cranberry Juice, Lemon, Tonic Water, and plenty of ice cubes to complement the drinks.
With all this and just a little math, you should have enough liquor for your guests to be in the mood throughout the party.
Every effort to host a fantastic get-together can feel tasteless if flavorful dishes do not complement it. People always love a party where they can socialize over food and drinks. So, it will be best if you serve your guests a variety of delicious food that satisfies their taste buds.
Depending on the number of guests, preferences, and dietary restrictions, you can choose from the following options to meet the food requirement.
If the number of guests is less and you have the culinarian touch, you may consider preparing the dishes yourself. However, prepare everything before the guest’s arrival so they don’t feel out of place and you don’t miss the fun.
Potluck might be a centuries-old tradition of sharing food, but it still has not lost its charm. It’s a great way to connect with people, have a good time and make memories. If all your guests agree to the Potluck idea, it’s an excellent way to celebrate your get-together. However, avoid keeping the dishes a surprise and discuss the menu with everyone viewing allergies and dietary restrictions, and of course, to prevent food clashes.
If self-cooking and potluck ideas don’t seem to be working out in your case, you can go for the takeout option. It’s fast and a savior for those last-minute party plans. Just remember to seek suggestions from your guests and place/pick up the order well before the party begins.
