Different people consider entertainment in different ways. Some consider watching television, listening to the radio and spending time with the family as entertaining. It all depends on how you view THE term entertainment. If you are someone who likes to host small tea parties at home then you must think about doing it differently. You can even make your own muffins and cupcakes for the event. Do keep in mind that a great party involves conversing with others, making them comfortable, serving good food and drinks and playing great tunes. Here is how you can plan an entertaining party at home:

 

SET THE MOOD

You must focus on setting the mood for the event. Your home must be cozy and inviting for others. You must stay calm before the event begins. Do not spend time pulling and moving items from one area to another. You must make sure that you do these things a few days early. Do wear something which makes you smile. You can even wear a dress with some bangles for accessories.

 

LIGHT SOME CANDLES

You must light candles of various lengths and heights to make your party look different. Light must be spread across the space in an even manner. It must convey a glow which will make the space look soft and soothing to the eye. You can even pick some sweet smelling ones to make the space look great. Make sure that you do pick ones which are unscented.

 

BE PREPARED

You must be well prepared for the tasks ahead. You must finish cooking your main food items and plate the salad before people arrive too. There are many items which you must have prepared beforehand. Do prepare the appetizers and drinks in advance too. Sometimes you can even mix the cocktails in a flask. You must also create a cheese plate for your guests to munch on.

 

CREATE GREAT PLACING CARDS

You must create placing cards which are made of great materials. You can even use glitter and colored markers to draw attention to your items. Do make them fancy if your event is a fancy one. If they are simple then you must make sure that your table mats look colorful and inviting. If your table is inviting then you will make the event a great one too. Remember that planning an entertaining home party is not always easy as it sounds. You will have to be well prepared for the task ahead. You must figure out the menu items as early as you possibly can. Do not wait until the last moment in order to do so.
