4 STEPS TO HOSTING A SUCCESSFUL GATHERING AT YOUR HOUSE
1. START PLANNING EARLY
One step to hosting a successful gathering at your house is to be prepared. Start the planning process as early as possible. You want to make sure guests put the date on their calendars and are available to attend. Send out invitations to confirm the date of the gathering and what type of party you’ll be hosting. Let guests know if they should bring anything and what time to arrive. Then begin making a checklist of what you need to complete and get done before the party.
2. FOCUS ON THE FOOD
People care about food when it comes to attending an event or gathering. If you want to please your guests then focus a lot of energy and effort on the menu.

Think about what you want to cook and bake versus what you prefer to buy at the store and serve depending on how much time you have to prepare and your cooking abilities.
3. TIDY UP
Another step to hosting a successful gathering at your house is to get your home ready for having people over. You must make plenty of time to tidy up and get your house in order. Consider which bathroom your guests will be using so you can ensure it’s presentable. Also, you may want to spruce up your patio or outdoor space a bit if you think you’ll be spending time outdoors too. Do a deep clean of all areas you’ll be using and guests will be seeing in and around your home and organize your dishware and glassware so it’s ready to go.
4. BE A GOOD HOST
If you want to throw a successful gathering at your house then you must commit to being a good host. Dress for the season and occasion and be ready ahead of time so you can be at the door greeting your guests as they arrive and making them feel welcome. Be sure to introduce people at your party to one another and offer your guests something to drink and let them know when the food is ready to eat. Have plenty of seating for your visitors and turn on some music in the background to put people at ease and create a party atmosphere. Remember to be yourself and to relax and have a good time but also be mindful not to drink too much alcohol as the host.
Cheers to tons of successful gatherings in the near future!!!
