Expert's 7 Tips to throwing a GREAT Party!
1. First things first...a GREAT invite!
In the past I had way too many drink options and then was left with TONS of alcohol that took me years to use up. If you have a bartender this is not a problem, however if you don't, simplify it.
2. Simplify your drinks
Elizabeth Allen, an event planner with offices in Boston and Manhattan, gave great advice on Oprah.com. "If you can't afford a full bar," says Elizabeth, "have red and white wines and a novelty cocktail."
If you have a party with adults and kids...pick two serve - yourself adult drinks like wine and beer, one premade signature cocktail drink, and some water for non drinkers. For kids, make one premade drink of fruity lemonade or a fun punch recipe with extra juice boxes for back up if you run out.
