Summer is finally here and it is the period of parties, wining and dining and of course garden parties. Everybody enjoys attending these events, but behind all of those glorious parties, there is the host who organizes it all!
The Con Gusto Team has helped organised many events in our time, so we thought we would put together a little 'top tips' list for being the perfect party host, as it isn't always easy knowing where to start!
Tip One - Number of guests
Getting the number of guests right is crucial. This is for two reasons. Firstly regarding event space. You want the room full but not crowded. If you have just a few, select guests coming, choose a space with is smaller and more secluded so it doesn't feel sparse. Secondly, the number of guests changes the number of seats / glasses / canapes that you need too! Try and get an RSVP at least a week before the event so you can finalise these numbers
Tip Two - Music
Music adds ambiance to the event, where it is background music or a live singer, it adds an extra touch to a party which makes it more enjoyable.
Tip Three - Drinks
A drinks reception is a requisite. Be it alcoholic or non alcoholic, to be the perfect host you should always have a drink on hand to satiate the thirst of your guests.
Tip Four - Food
Food is the finishing touch for a party. From finger food to a sit-down meal, it is the talking point and makes for happy guests. We believe that no party should be without at least some canapes! Why not indulge yourself in some of our menus for some ideas!
Tip Five - Circulate
To be the perfect host it is important that you circulate and talk to ever guest. Try not to spend the whole event speaking to just one group or one person - you have invited the people close to you so dedicate time to make them all feel welcome
