Family Party Planning Tips

Becoming the Best Party Host

As I grown older I find myself becoming more nostalgic. I begin to take strolls down memory lane reminiscing of all those great family get-togethers. I cherish the moments and crave them more and more. Creating family traditions and gatherings is never too late even as your children get older.



Family gatherings are an essential part of our lives, as they provide an opportunity to bond with our loved ones, create lasting memories, and strengthen family ties. Hosting a family party can be a fun and rewarding experience, but it can also be stressful if not planned properly.

The Importance of Food and Drinks




Food and drinks are the very essence of any gathering, as they create a sense of togetherness and shared experience. They not only nourish the body but also feed the soul, as people bond over delicious meals and refreshing beverages. A well-planned menu can make a gathering memorable, as it caters to diverse palates and preferences. It's not just about the taste, but also the presentation, which adds to the overall ambiance of the event. The right beverage, like this one, a Long Island Iced Tea can make a great happy hour drink or beverages paired with food can elevate the dining experience can create a harmonious meal.. Food and drinks are the glue that holds a gathering together, fostering stronger bonds and creating lasting memories.


Plan Ahead

The best parties begin with a plan. Consider what you are hoping to achieve with your family party and what you would like your guests to experience at the party. Details like your invite list, your date, the time, the theme, your location, whether or not you have any dietary requirements for your guests, age ranges for the guests, and anything else that you know is important to you for your magical family party. Get a detailed checklist of the things you would like to get organized—from invites to clean up—and a timeline of the tasks that you will need to do to get there. Even asking for opinions on the dish you want to make can help. You might find out that guests want simple cleaning eating dishes. Hence, having opinions can help you understand if it is the right decision.

Get Personal

To be a be a good party host do things differently by making the party feel personal. Customize the decorations and table settings creating a warm and inviting atmosphere. Pay attention to lighting, music, and the wow factor, and consider fresh flowers, candles, and textiles to give warmth and elegance to our space. Present a friendly face when your guests arrive, offer a nice ice-breaker refreshment when your guests arrive, and encourage mingling so guests can feel more comfortable and connected.


Plan Fun Activities

My most favorite family gatherings that created long lasting memories for everyone usually consisted of some sort of activity. Hanging around a bonfire sharing our favorite stories of family gathering in the past is one everyone could partake in. My family loves a good board game from Clue to Taboo to Apples to Apples. We also love a good trivia game.


Capture the Memories

Don’t forget to get lots of photos and videos so you can cherish the memories. Years down the road you can bring out the old pictures and videos at another family gathering. Another great idea is to create photo books as gifts for your family members.
