Preparing a for Your Backyard Party
If you’re putting appetizers together, you are most likely getting ready to have a party at your home, and you want everything to be perfect. It’s understandable that you want to make sure that you have the best setup possible. These parties don’t have to be stressful, and you can have a lot of fun instead of worrying about how the food is going to turn out, who is going to show up, and what people are going to be saying.
Have a Theme
When preparing for your party, make sure that you have a theme. Everything should compliment and go along with that theme, so when you are choosing your appetizers, make sure you keep the theme in mind. There are plenty of fun things that you can make up so that you can have your favorite appetizers. Maybe you will have an evening in Italy, Paris or a Hawaiian theme so you can break out those pineapples you’ve been eyeing.
Besides the food being on theme, you could ask your guests to come dressed for the theme to add some extra fun. Sure, the food is great, but you need to make sure the rest of the party is up to the same standards as the food. Guests can wear their own clothes, but add some props for photos so you can have fun playing around with the props and taking photos.
Your party invitations should be the start of the theme, so you are able to prepare everyone for the fun. You’re going to have more people show up to eat your appetizers if the party looks like fun and they want to come. If you are having a Paris theme party, don’t forget to put the Eiffel tower somewhere on the invitations.
When you are setting up your party, make sure you have plenty of seating and little nooks where people can go to sit, talk and eat. Keeping these details in mind will keep you from having to run to the basement looking for spare chairs you forgot to bring up to the party. You might want to grab a few folding tables as well.
Always make sure you have enough appetizers so everyone can eat to their heart’s content. It’s not a problem if you overcook since guests are often happy to take any extras that you don’t want off your hands. To make it easier for your guests to take the goodies that you no longer need, keep some disposable containers that you don’t care if you get back or not. This is easier than trying to track down your dishes after they’ve wandered home with friends.
