Tips On Throwing A Party For A Mixed Crowd

For the inexperienced, organizing a party for the very first time, can feel intimidating. How many people do you prepare for, and what do you need to do in order to make yourself known as a good host? After all, first impressions are lasting; and people can be a little unforgiving if you botch up your first attempt at being the host.
Things get only more complicated, when the party you are entertaining consists of a mixed guest list. This means a mix of age groups (like a family party), or even a mix of preferences; be it in the food, or the likes. If you are about to throw a party for the very first time for a mixed group of guests; then these tips are for you.
Food is the primary thing to focus onPeople can be very picky when it comes to food. Taste, preferences, religious or ethnic beliefs, and even special diets of your guests must be kept in mind. Try to find something that will fit everyone present. For example, if some of your guests include Muslims, then as part of the preparation, you might want to hire halal food catering services. Just ask them to have a few vegetarian options available as well.
The bars and the barkeepersA good party will definitely include some good drinks. After all, drinks, be it alcoholic or not, have a way of putting people at ease. Just like you pay attention to the food, it’s important that you remember to pay attention to your guests’ drink choices as well. While you might be tempted to have an open bar option for all, in the case of hiring halal wedding catering in Singapore, you might want to have some non-alcoholic drinks at hand as well. This applies even if you have children in your guest list.
The entertainmentJust like the food and the drinks, when entertaining a mixed group of guests, one must be prepared for a variety of entertainment as well. If possible, try to “separate” the adult entertainment area from the children’s; or make arrangements so that the “common” entertainment happens during the initial part of the party; and once the children are familiar with each other and ready to mingle, gently divert them towards another part of your home. This way, the adults can have fun without the kids being underfoot.
Apart from this, you need to pay attention to the decoration as well. If you have plans to have a mixed guest list which includes children, then we advise that you keep the decorations simple. After all, the last thing you want is for your decoration to endanger a child’s life while the adults’ attention has been diverted.
