Hosting a party in your home is a great way to gather all your friends in one room and finally have that long-promised 'night out' - which in this case a memorable party! But not many people opt for home birthday parties, whether it is because of the lack of space or just because they don't have enough time to plan it, they usually avoid it. Here are some tips on how to organize a perfect party in every home, in no time!

Be smart and think ahead

The most important thing to do when hosting a home birthday party is to plan ahead in order to save time and avoid spending too much money at once. So, obviously, the first step is to set a budget and make a plan – pick a date and make a guest list. As soon as you know the exact number of guests you can start making a shopping list and plan the menu within your budget limits. A smart way to make sure you have enough of everything is, well, to buy a just a bit more than you originally planned.

Birthday theme

Pick a theme and decorate everything

Start by picking a theme for the party so that you can decorate your home and create a perfect party atmosphere for your guests, and obviously, yourself. Why pick a theme – well, it is much easier to decorate when you when you have one.

For example, you can organize a GIRLS NIGHT IN B-day party and make it a pampering party. Gather your girlfriends and host a board game-sleepover-movie marathon party where you can indulge in DIY facials, mani, and pedis, playing games or watching your favorite movies while drinking wine (because you're adults) and gossiping. Well, who wouldn't love that?!

Or throw a Great Gatsby inspired birthday party, put on a flapper dress and rhinestone tiara and dance the night away. Ask your guests to dress up accordingly and serve chilled margaritas and finger foods – it is not a dinner party, it is a dance all night one! Rent a Photo Booth Me bespoke booth, play with the 1920s inspired props and create an unforgettable party! You can also surprise your guests and plan a murder mystery game. Your guests will have a blast!

Birthday menu

Plan the menus

Prepare party foods that go well together with your party theme and print out the menus. Think of smart new names for your recipes and let your guests guess what they will eat. Find easy online recipes and make the courses before your guests arrive so that you can concentrate on socializing and hosting instead of cooking. There is no need to complicate things, you can make simple recipes and decorate the food in a specific way to make it extraordinary. Play with different flavors, prepare exotic food such Chinese or Indian and add spices - to spice it up a bit! Make sure to avoid food that causes allergies and check with your friends about the food they don't eat or dislike.

If you don't want a dinner party, make sure to have enough finger foods and concentrate on how to present drinks – for example, create customized cocktails for each guest.

You're never too old for a cake

And don't forget about the cake and candles! Luckily, the internet made it easy for all of us who dislike cooking and baking because now you use online cake delivery and instead of making a mess in your kitchen and losing too much time on preparing sweets and baking a perfect cake, you can get a cake by the time you finish your coffee.
