An Introvert’s Guide to Attending Parties

Being an introvert is hard, and attending a party is even harder. Whenever introverts, like me, hear about a party held in a few days, the anticipation is always broken into 2 parts, excitement, and intimidation. So, what should you do?

Here are a few nice tips that will help you ease yourself out before, during and after a party. Extroverts can also read this, just to get an understanding of how to interact and talk to introverts like us. After all, everyone should have a great time at a party, right?

Tip # 1: Don’t overthink:

This is probably the most annoying things introverts do and have to bear doing. Take a good long rest before the party, make yourself relaxed, and don’t think of how you’ll spend the party and who you’ll spend it with. Remember, only time will tell what’ll happen.

Tip # 2: Be true to yourself:

In other words, don’t do something you aren’t comfortable with. Don’t like the guy sitting on the table, don’t go talk to him. Simply, avoid placing pressure on your own self, and don’t force topics you can’t bear. Just be authentic.

Tip # 3: Find something to keep you busy:

If you don’t want to just stand around and talk to everybody, you can always volunteer! Go to the party’s host and offer some help. It can be anything from filling drinks to serving dishes. It not only keeps you busy, but will also increase your social skills and will help you bond with other attendees.

Tip # 4: Bring an extrovert:

You have a friend that is extremely chatty? Bring him/her with you! They will not only lighten your mood, but will also make you feel company. Not only that, they can also pull you out of your secret comfort zone, and that’s great because parties are the best way to interact with new people and make new friends!

How the Best Man Creates a Bachelor Party Planning Guide

Bachelor Party Planning is the procedure of planning, organizing and setting up a party held for a bachelor, a person who is about to get married, also called the groom-to-be. A bachelor party represents the final night of freedom in family commitments and social dependencies of the groom before taking the oath of marriage. Usually, stag parties are being planned by the best man; either he is the groom’s older or younger brother, or a very special friend to him. The job of the best man is like tying a knot – he needs to tie the knot nicely but tight. As to planning a bachelor party, he needs to ensure that every aspect of the event is well-planned to make the one last night of merrymaking with all the guys closest to the groom a very great rewarding moment before he make the big “I Do.”

To plan for a bachelor party, the best man should have a serious conversation with the groom. Doing a party planning needs both the groom and his best man to talk about many things in order for the event to become special and unforgettable. The very first thing that the planner should do is to ask the groom what kind of stag party he likes. Oftentimes, grooms prefer camping out, cruising some nightspots and hanging out on clubs for a beer party. It is good to ask the groom what he wants for the event. But if the groom is still confused on what kind of party he likes to have, then altered the party to fit the character or personality of the groom. If he loves soccer, then go to a soccer field to watch a soccer game.

After knowing the groom’s preferences, discuss the probable dates and times on when the party will be held. Try not to confuse the groom about deciding anything about the party except by telling him that both of you needs to set a date, locate for a venue, and gather the names of your guests to be included in the guest list. After discussing these things, start estimating the total costs ahead of time. But when it is a big stag party, the best man should talk with the groom about setting the date and time, considering the budget, building a guest list, sending invitations to guests, choosing a theme of the party, booking of the venue and planning for the menu.

The planning is about to be completed, but there’s one more thing left to be discussed – how the invitation goes. Of course, guests and VIPs need to be invited. If the party is a formal one, hard-copy invitations are to be released, but for less formal parties, electronic invitations such as emails, blogs and text messages are suitable to use. In every party planning, creating invitations is necessary, for these serves as the “informant” of whom and how many are invited in the party. Make sure all the information about the event will reach out the guests to ensure that the celebration will be held according to plan.

As the best man of the groom, do not hesitate on creating a very special bachelor party. After all the days of being under family, academic and social commitments, the stag party is the groom’s last chance to party with the closest guys of his life before he walks along the wedding carpet. Hereafter, a bachelor party planning must be done properly and effectively in order to have a very wonderful party for the bachelor…

Wow your friends with a spooktacular outdoor Halloween party

Well, we both know that Halloween is the perfect time of the year to host a party that will thrill your friends and family. This is one of those holidays that’s steeped in fun, threats, and magic. Probably you’re only used to seeing kids running and playing across your neighborhood decked in a different costume, and you only think it’s a day for young children alone. This is not true. Adults can also have lots of fun on this particular day while embracing their festive and creative sides.

The first thing to keep in mind when planning for that outdoor Halloween party is your imagination. Remember, this is the time to create a big social event just before the busy holiday season begins. It, therefore, means that you’re supposed to do everything possible to make your party ‘Spooktacular.’

Start by Picking your Venue

Whether you’re planning to host fifteen or twenty-five guests, be sure to choose a scare-perfect venue. Since we’re talking about an outdoor Halloween party, find a place that will allow for easy decorating and provides enough space for games and other activities. If your backyard doesn’t have sufficient space for your guests, you may need to find somewhere else. Whether you decide to use your own backyard or use your friend’s backyard, keep everything simple and safe. Don’t forget that every party needs proper planning and attention to detail.

Create a Spooky Space and Add Creepy Treats

The next step is to select the theme for your party. Here is when you come up with a list of spooktacular decorations. It’s important that you use your own creativity as this will help you save money. Place some Halloween costumes and masks in the outdoor space and use some creepy music to make the whole even spookier. Consider using white pieces of cloth to cover your furniture and orange, red, black and purple bulbs for lighting.

Once you’re done decorating your outdoor space, go ahead and create delicious treats for the party. The tablespace available should be enough for all your guests.

Come up with Minster-ish Games

Your guests will be coming to have ghostly fun which means you need to include games and music on your planning list. Have some friends to help with the games and amenities. Some games ideas include setting up a photo booth with scary items like fangs and wigs, playing scary musical chairs, having a costume contest and more.

Halloween is the time to embrace a ghostly atmosphere and encourage your inner goblin to get out. Don’t forget that food or rather refreshments are just as valuable and important as your Halloween décor. Since you’re the person hosting the party, this is your only chance to look Halloween sensational. Don’t put on a costume that will limit your movement. Have something that will allow you to move freely. It’s important that you attend to your guests and keep the event ‘alive.’
