Patio Party Checklist

Do you want to amaze your guests at your next patio party? There are a few aspects of party planning that every amazing hostess must check off their list in order to throw the perfect party. Theme, entertainment, food and atmosphere are just a few key points any great hostess wants to be sure and cover when throwing a party. Remember, the ultimate goal is for your guests to enjoy themselves in a great environment. Good luck!

Theme

Theme

Decide on the theme you want to center your part around. Fun themes include, beach party, pirate party, tiki bar and wild wild west. The whole point of a theme at a party is to encourage people to dress for the event. Also, have fun games and food to go along with the chosen theme.

Entertainment

Entertainment

Entertainment is a huge factor that can make or break a party. Often guests judge how much they enjoyed the event by what kind of entertainment went on during the party. One way to secure the opinions of your guests is to let them have input on the activities that take place.

Food

Food

This is one of the most important factors of party planning; at least your guests think so. Besides the entertainment food is also a main part of the party. Everyone goes to a party expecting to be served authentic hors d’oeuvres and delicious desserts. As a host you want your food to go along with the chosen theme for your party. For example, if your party is a pirate theme you can serve parrot punch, octopus hotdogs and skeleton cookies. As a host it is imperative to remember that great parties always have a signature drink or dish that makes them unique.

Atmosphere

Atmosphere

The atmosphere of a party can all depend on the theme, entertainment, food and your guests. The most important aspect of the atmosphere of your party is making your guests comfortable. If you throw an outside party in the winter you should consider buying or renting heaters to keep your guests warm during the activities. Also, if you are throwing a party outside during the summer you want to provide your guests with cool shade and a great way to do this is by using an awning. Here in Utah the weather can be extremely brutal in the summer so an awning would be a great investment if you plan to throw several parties. Awnings are also a great way to keep the cost of your electricity bill down during the summer months in Utah. Rather than having a door open letting the inside of your house cool the outside as much as possible, an awning can instantly add more shade to any backyard.
