Our top party tips

Our tried and tested party tips:

  • Too much food and drink is always better than too little so always go slightly over what you think you might need. You can always have it for leftovers the next day!
  • Create a few different playlists to suit the varying vibes of the day. You might want a chilled playlist for daytime socialising, followed by some floorfillers come evening.
  • Have some soft drinks to hand for kids and non-drinkers.
  • Be sure to check for any food allergies and dietary requirements prior to a dinner party.
  • Prep as much as you can before your guests arrive so you can properly relax and enjoy yourself.
  • Set up a play area to keep the little ones entertained so you are free to socialise.
