Are you hosting a soiree at your home and need to take count all things you need to consider whilst doing so? This article may be of help, so take a look to find out more.
What’s your theme?
You need to know that a fancy soiree can’t happen without some theme, which you may already know. We emphasis on the colour scheme, be it a fancy dress or suited category. The colour pattern will really enhance the theme.
Our favourites are the black and white theme, boho chic mix up of colours and classic all white themed party. You can also be bold and do something new.
What’s your head count?
Have you checked back in with the RSVPs, please ensure you do that so you could sort out sitting, food and beverage arrangements as soon as possible
What’s your décor like?
Have you thought about your décor, since you are hosting at home – adding in some décor will really invite and make the atmosphere fancy!
If you are into all things new and sustainable you could purchase some earthy area rugs. They would go perfectly under coffee tables and your couches too. The best part is, you could continue using it in your home space after the event ends and just make it an add on in your home space.
What’s your food and drinks like?
We have to emphasis the food, after you have got your rsvps – finalize your food and drinks- if you are having a potluck type soiree where your guests bring in a dish, make sure to send them a message on the final head count.
If you are the only host, call up your caterers and ensure you have a rundown of the menu. Since it’s a soiree, you want your cheeses and cold cuts, your main dishes, dessert and lots to drink!
What’s your back up food plan?
Do you have a back up food plan, there are those instances where situations arise. In this context, we would suggest you call up a second place and try to book in meals but where you have the option of paying after the event, just in case.
We don’t want you and your guests to miss out on the mains!
What’s your attire like?
Soirees are always fancy, but it’s up to you. You can do your own thing, the most fancy dine in for women would be a dress and a jump suite for that extra jazz & for men, black tie or semi casual, whatever you prefer for your people, but do ensure you’ve mentioned it beforehand.
What’s your ideal wind down time?
As much as events are fun, its best you give your caterers or helpers a thumbs up on what time your guests would leave so that they can prepare for all – nighters if needed.
Have the best time, enjoy the vibes, make memories whilst you can and stay safe!
