Party guests not showing up

You heard of many children and adults stories about parties where no guests showed up. It’s shocking for the host to experience this unfairness but often it’s their own faults. To stay away from guests not showing up don’t celebrate a party on special dates, for example, like the big football game or TV events.

If you can’t dodge them, then plan around them. For instance, gather your friends to see the big game or show on the big screen TV while still celebrating your party. Bring the pizza, chip-dips, and sodas or drinks and enjoy.

Also, double-check your invites to ensure you have the right day, time and place. Remember to follow up for Rsvp as it helps. 

Party on but people bored

You served the food and the drinks; the music is rocking, however; the party hasn’t started yet. Maybe the party people’s chemistry could be off, often, visitors may not know one another, or no one wants to get the ball rolling. 

The best thing you can do to make the mood more hip for your guests is to make sure the music is upbeat, acquaint visitors with each other, and plan a few activities or games. Have some word games, board games, brain games, drinking games, anything that gets everyone moving or at least interacting. Soon these guests will go down on the dance floor and boogie, all they need is a little push.

The uninvited guest

The world is small and sometimes the odds of an invitee bringing an old ex, someone you dislike, or even more guests you don’t have space for, can bring an uncomfortable situation. To prevent uninvited visitors from appearing just explain that you have limited space on the invitations. That should dishearten anyone from bringing the unexpected visitor. 

However, as word spreads of your party and individuals still show up uninvited, tell them you don’t have enough space and that they need to leave. The best way to mitigate this problem while looking good or at least polite is to allow them to stay only if you have enough space, drinks, and food. 

Controversial topics

One second the room can be happy with cool and light-hearted discussion and in the following minute, they are chairs flying like in WWE. Heated discussions about religion, favorite teams, and, even race can regularly shut down a party. Once something like this happens, it’s difficult to recover the happy mood. 

However, you can prevent a WWE match by reminding each visitor they are entitled to their opinion but without offending one other. But try not to pick sides, help the ambiance with a simple topic for everyone to discuss. As a host, change everyone’s mood to something more positive. If you see a future argument, do an activity or just mitigate and ensure the visitor don’t hold feelings of resentment. 

The drunk visitor

When making drinks accessible at a gathering, the aim is typically to loosen everyone up and help them have fun. However, after a few drinks, a nice mannered visitor can turn into a loud, obnoxious visitor. Sure indications of the impolite and unpleasantly alcoholic guests are empty glasses piling up, loud screams, and confrontational body language. 

Prevent drunk visitors from ruining your party by counting the number of beverages they’ve had to drink and checking on their state often. Sometimes you can’t stay away from a drunk visitor since with or without you they will get alcohol. The best thing you can do is not to serve drinks or make a happy hour that lasts about two hours. Also, don’t allow drunk people from the outside to come and ruin your day! Finally, get them a cab or call Uber if they drove to your party and look wasted.

The bustling host 

As a host, practically all the obligations of the gathering falls on you. Tasks can pile up and before you finish with everything, the gathering can be over. Try not to become too involved with the difficulties that accompany setting up a gathering.

If you’re throwing a significant event get someone to help you, for example, a party planner. When you host a small gathering ask friends and family members to help. Usually, essentials such as food, drink, and, entertainment will need some additional hands. 

The last thing your visitors want to see is a panicked, busy, and unsocial host. The main aim of the host is to offer attention to their visitors and have a good time.
