Is your birthday approaching and all you want is to celebrate with loved ones and spend an afternoon or evening together in the warmth of home?
Why not organize a birthday party at home, which allows you to have everything under control (from the time to the menu, to the decorations) and to indulge yourself with original and personalized ideas?
It is a simple and truly unique way to bring all your loved ones together and spend time together between a chat, a toast and a snack! Below are some tips on how to host a birthday party at home.
Choose the mood of the event.
Do you want a formal dinner, a dynamic aperitif or a finger party? Depending on the setting you intend to give to the party, you can decide how to structure the party (spaces, musical entertainment, food and beverage).
Give a theme to your party.
If you know how many guests you will have to welcome and what kind of setting you want to give to the party, choosing a theme can help you in selecting the food, the musical style, the family dress up and the type of settings you will have to create.
The menu of your birthday party is an essential element for the success of the party. My advice is to opt for a buffet, full of snacks and delicious recipes that your guests can enjoy standing up.
The buffet allows you to create a more dynamic and informal situation: all guests can move freely and chat more easily with each other.
Prepare the rooms.
Unless you have a dining room that already has enough table for all of your guests to sit for dinner, chances are you will need to move some furniture left and right. This phase is very delicate because you will have to be careful to predict how people will move during the party from the welcome until the end of the event.
Organizing a birthday party at home means, first of all, creating a moment of sharing in an environment that is certainly exclusive and original, since, even if you want to repeat a format or a stylistic approach, a party organized at home will never have the same flavor organized elsewhere.
