A Guide to Throwing an Epic Party

So, you’ve decided to throw a party. Whether it’s a small get together at home or a huge celebratory bash at a Melbourne nightclub, there are a few important things that everyone should remember when planning an event.

To make sure your event hits all the right notes, we’ve compiled a list of DO’s and DON’T’S to party planning. Take a look to make sure you’ve got everything covered…

DO hire a DJ

Music is essential to any party. Without a great playlist that your guests can get down to, any event is as good as dead in the water. Hiring a DJ ensures that your event will always be filled with amazing tunes that your guests will love.

A DJ will be able to read the crowd and know what is working and what isn’t, and change up their set accordingly. Trust us – if you want everyone to have the time of their lives, this one is a non-negotiable.

DON’T forget to offer food

In an effort to save money, you might opt to put a few bowls of chips on a table towards the back of the room for those people who get hungry throughout the night.

The truth is, though, that most people come to parties assuming there will be some kind of food offered there. So, if they arrive only to find that an almost-empty chip bowl is their only option, it might put a bit of a damper on the night.

A room full of hungry guests does not make for the best of parties, so get some cheap but yummy food and bring it out throughout the night to avoid this dilemma.


DO choose a big enough venue

The last thing you want for your big event is to find that all of your guests are squished into a space with barely any room to move, let alone dance. Luckily, there are a few ways to avoid this problem. First of all, make a comprehensive guest list before you book a venue.

This allows you to envision exactly how big of a space you’ll need to comfortable fit everyone in attendance. It’s also important to take into account areas like seating, the DJ’s set-up and tables, as they will reduce the amount of free space you have to work with.

If you absolutely can’t afford to hire a bigger venue, we suggest shortening your guest list. It’s much better to throw a great party that a select few can enjoy than one where everyone you’ve ever met is forced to rub shoulders with each other –literally!

DON’T forget to make the space comfortable

Whether it’s an 18th birthday or corporate function, tables, chairs and couches are essential for any great party. Yes, every host has a vision of their guests spending the whole night dancing, but the reality is that even the best events are ones where people can sit down, relax and chat when they want to.

It costs very little to scatter a few chairs around the room and your guests will love you for it, we promise!
