10 ideas to become a better host

Hosting a party is no easy task. There are so many responsibilities and details to take care of, it’s hard not to worry about everything going wrong! But don’t let that stop you from giving the best possible experience for all your guests.

Here are some ways as a host you can make sure everyone has an amazing time:

  1. Make a plan for the party or get together
  2. Create an event checklist and assign tasks to guests
  3. Make sure to have enough seating for everyone
  4. Prepare food ahead of time in advance so you don’t have to worry about it on the day of your event
  5. Keep drinks in the fridge so they’re always cold and fresh
  6. Set up a guestbook for people to sign when they arrive, make sure there is enough space for everyone’s signature
  7. Put out some snacks before the guests arrive so that they can mingle while eating 
  8. Have plenty of napkins, utensils, plates, and glasses available
  9. Plan activities for people who may not know each other as well, such as games or puzzles
  10. Designate someone as the hostess who will greet all new arrivals with a smile and hand them their drink (this person should also be responsible for helping with cleanup)
