Now we can all agree that good music goes with parties, friends, and if you’re like me: adult beverages. I want you guys to trust me on this Summer 2017 playlist that is a must for the car or your next shindig. Check out the list below.
So now that I’ve shared a somewhat random list of songs for your Summer playlist..ha! I also thought I’d share a few tips for your next party.
* Make sure to pre-plan your playlist for the mood of the party. Hopefully you can use some of my songs from the Summer ’17 playlist or Pandora has the best playlists you can select under certain artists.
* Candles with a pleasant, but not overpowering scent are perfect for uplifting the guests and adding an aroma to your space for that special night. Scents like lavender, eucalyptus, citruses, sandalwoods, and vanilla should be your go-to.
* Avoid serving heavy foods at your party unless this is a barbecue/cook-out. Go for small bites so guests can have something on their stomachs while they partake in alcoholic beverages.
* Consider your audience and make sure you are catering to what will ultimately give them a night to remember. For example, if this is a unisex party, make sure you’re serving something like whiskey and beer for the men, so they won’t be limited to wine and my favorite: rose. Balance is key.
* Think about giving out a little token or gift for your appreciation (This usually goes for more intimate parties like bridal showers) When people take the time out to come to your party, a little thoughtful gift such as a small candle or wine stopper is a very classy thing to do.
* Have mints or small candies around in containers for guests to welcome themselves to. This will avoid any insecurities when people want to get a little closer and have a deep convo…ha!
*Delegate. You can’t do it all alone, so why not bring a couple of girlfriends to boss them around (just kidding), but a little help goes along way. Divvying up duties will leave you less stressed.
*Don’t feel the need to have plenty of details. Maybe 3 impact details and 3 small details are necessary to show that you were really invested in whatever theme you planned.
