How To Be The Best Host or How To Entertain Guests

Updated on March 13, 2012

As a general rule, any party begins with a traditional gathering at the table. All the guests get together at the party, give gifts, sit down and enjoy for some time eating of the delicacies offered by the hosts. After this comes dessert and probably some dancing, everything depends on the mood. But it is not really what was expected. The goal of any party is to have fun, socializing, expression of emotions, feelings of the guests and even making new acquaintances.

In order to make the party more interesting and let the guests really enjoy it you should pay attention to some essential details: imagination, creativity and a bit of free time.
It is very important to create the right atmosphere before starting the party, many people coming to the party and meeting some new guests feel somehow uncomfortable. What to offer to the guests while waiting for the arrival of all the other guests? In this case, it is not advisable to give them to look at family photo albums, of course, if the guests express this desire. For example, you can offer guests who waits for others to come, a small appetizer, which also will serve as an excellent way to meet new people, to offer them some topic for conversation, etc.

When the party is in its full progress, everything exposed on the table almost all eaten and drunk, you can entertain the visitors with interesting games.Do not think that game is most suited for children's parties; there are much to do for older people older as well - karaoke and dancing (Kinect dance games). But here, it is also important to choose only entertainment, depending on age and mood of the present company.

By the way, you need to know that the "warm-up," it is better to give preference to outdoor games, after them - to select and offer some intellectual and logical games (for example, charade) and only after that you can offer something unusual or more open, here we can mention some more personal conversations.

Well, sometimes you find yourself in the company of people where is so boring and nobody does anything to improve the situation.

In case you have such kind of situations, you can take an envelope and put there pieces of short little phrases and sentences cut from newspapers and magazines. It quickly may turns into a fun game that can amuse your guests or people in the company with whom you are.

Difficulty: Easy

1 step

Cut short phrases and interesting pictures from newspapers and magazines
2 step

Put them in an envelope

 3 step

When the guests are bored, have them play a game called  “I have…,  in my pants,,  It's always intriguing :)

4 step

The first guest gets a cut piece from the envelope, and begins the sentence with: I have in my pants ... and read out the sentence, which he read from the cut piece from magazine or newspaper. It Could turn out very funny phrase, for example: I have in my pants a nuclear potential or, in my pants ... a bomb detector, portable solar chargers. Or "I have tested it in practice and it works effectively and 100% reliably."

 Are you smiling?  Be sure your company will have an irrepressible laughter.

Just Enjoy Your Life
Just Enjoy Your Life

5 step

When to finish the game? You will feel. Your guests will remember this fun, even after time. Do not believe me - check!

Tips and warnings:

• Involve in collecting the pieces from magazines and newspapers your family, or friends not explaining, why. They will be intrigued.

• Chose for different content, it will depend on the audience.

• For adults, you can use it with a spicy hint.

• Even people with no sense of humor will enjoy the atmosphere of uncontrolled joy :))

Cheerful Company is the guarantee of a well-spent holiday!
