A new year has just begun, and you still have a chance to throw the most memorable party of the decade!
The following 5 tips will help you throw a party that people will remember for ages to come.
Tip #1: Have all your bottle gear ready to go
No one wants to be scrambling for bottle openers or other bottle accessories! If you want to forego the traditional and sometimes unreliable corkscrew, opt for a sturdy Bottle Wrench - Beer Bottle Opener that will get the job done every time. And don't forget to get your bottle stoppers so that everything stays nice and airtight! If you want to really make a splash, purchase a stylized opener like the Bottle Bear - Gold Bear Bottle Stopper.
Tip #2: Set out snacks for people to nibble on before (or after!) dinner
Snacks are an essential for any party, whether they're on the table before dinner or after dinner. Don't stick to boring old bowls and dishes for your party: spice things up with a Pistachio - Serving Bowls for your favorite nuts; a Footbowl - Snack Bowl for all your chip needs, or a Tipi - Snack Dish that can easily store bite-sized snacks and tooth picks for everyone to enjoy. If you're in the mood for something a little bigger, opt for the cute Jonah - Toothpick Dispenser that lets guests shake the whale to get their handy stick.
Tip #3: Don’t forget the ice—and ice alternatives!
No one wants a lukewarm drink on a party! Make sure you have plenty of ice made, and to make things more special, store it in ice bucket with a scoop so guests won’t have to dig around in your freezer. If you’re serving nicer drinks, invest in some metallic drinking stones that will keep everything cold without diluting them. Polar - Iceberg-shaped Metallic Drinking Stones are a great option for some uniquely shaped stones that guests will love.
Tip #4: Plan a special dinner menu
A dinner party’s most important element? The dinner itself! Plan a special dinner menu that shows guests just how much thought, effort and time you put into your dinner. The dinner should have options for every guests tastes (so make sure to find out if any guests are vegetarian or have allergies); and don’t forget to serve multiple courses to make things extra special.
Tip #5: Don’t forget decor
Décor is an important element of any party! Some well-placed streamers, twinkling sparkle lights, and nice table clothes can make all the difference. If you want to get a bit silly, opt for décor accessories like a BottleTie – Corkscrew that will have any bottle looking dapper.
Make sure to keep the above tips in mind so that your dinner party is truly special.
