Parties are considered to be an event with fun and enjoyment. This is the major reason why parties are seen as large gatherings. However, that may not be what everyone wants. If you want to give someone a speciale verjaardagscadeau, arranging a small party for them with their close friends can be a great idea.
It is easy to arrange a small birthday party. Here are a few things that you need to do:
- Select your location
A small party is usually an intimate event and the location where this party is thrown should resonate perfectly with this idea. It can be a good idea to throw such a party at home, but if you don’t want that, finding a location needs to be the first step. Select a small and cozy place and make a booking well in advance to avoid any troubles later on.
- Prepare a guest list
As this is a small party, you might not be willing to invite a lot of guests over. However, it is important to still make a list of all the people that you are inviting. Once, the list is prepared, confirm with your guests if all of them are available that day because you might not want to miss on any of them.
- Make a formal invitation
Invitation cards are very important to make sure that all of your guests are able to get a formal note for the party. Include your name on the invitation and a subtle description of how the party is going to be like will help your guests understand your idea and come prepared according to that. Also, if you want your guests to bring something extra, like an extra pair of clothes, make sure to include this information in the invitation as well. Be specific about the location, date and time and put it very clearly on the invitation and make the reason for the party clear to them as well. You can print the invitations once they are ready and hand it over to your friends. Or you can also send an e-invite, but make sure they check it on time.
- Stock up the pantry
This is a very small party and your total guest list might not have more than ten people. However, when people come to a party, you will need to serve them. Get some food and drinks according to the dietary requirements of your guests. Take care of the special eating habits of everyone, like if someone is gluten intolerant, make sure you get some gluten free snacks. When you are inviting people for a small party, you need to make sure that all of them are enjoying.
- Do not forget entertainment
To make sure that your guests do not get bored, arrange for good music according to the taste of your guests. You can also include some fun events and games to keep your guests engaged. Make sure they have a fun time and do not feel bored because here are not so many people in the party.
