Top Ways To Have Fun On A Friday Night At Home With Your Friends

As people get older, they often find that they don't have the same desire to go out and party as they used to. This is especially true after hitting the late twenties and early thirties mark. A lot of people start to prefer staying in and having fun with their friends in a more low-key setting. And that's perfectly okay! There are plenty of ways to have a great time without leaving your house. Here are some tips for throwing an awesome stay-at-home party that everyone will love.

Prepare everything you need

Planning a party can be a lot of fun, even if it is for a casual Friday you should consider spicing it up a little. Depending on the type of people your social circle consists of, make sure to have plenty of those favorites. From cocktail tools to DND books and extensions, you should have everything to make the party run as smoothly as possible. For those that like to have a smoke or two of recreational marijuana, there should be a few types of dab rigs available as well. They come in all sorts of shapes and sizes, so you can find one that fits your style perfectly. If you want to go above and beyond, get a custom one made with your favorite colors or patterns.

Decorations are another important part of any party that should be planned ahead as well, to ensure that everything goes smoothly on the big day. A theme can help to narrow down the decoration options and make it easier to choose items that will complement each other. Neon lights and inflatables with unique designs are a great way to add some unrepeatable flair to the decorations, and they can be customized to fit any theme. You can even have those inflatables with the lights built in to combine the options and have a win-win decoration. Planning ahead for the decorations will help to make the party more enjoyable for everyone involved.

Set the mood with some music

One of the most important aspects of any party is the music. It should be upbeat and lively, but not too loud that it becomes obnoxious. Make sure to have a diverse playlist prepared so that everyone can enjoy it. If you're not sure what kind of music to play, ask your friends beforehand so you can get an idea of their taste.

Have some games ready

No party is complete without some games to liven things up. Whether you want to keep it classic with charades or Monopoly or go for something more modern like Cards Against Humanity, make sure you have a few options on hand. If you have a large group of people, you can even break off into teams and have a tournament. The possibilities are endless!

Make sure there's plenty of food and drink

No matter what kind of party you're throwing, food and drink are essential. If you're having an intimate gathering, you can prepare some simple snacks and have a few bottles of wine or beer. If you're planning on staying in, then it's important to make sure you have enough alcohol for everyone. Whether you prefer beer, wine or spirits, make sure you have enough for everyone to enjoy themselves. But if you're expecting a larger crowd, it's worth it to order catering or make a big batch of cocktails. Whatever you do, make sure there's enough for everyone and that everyone knows where to find it.

Turn off your phone and other distractions

Friday night is party time, so make sure you're fully present for it! One of the worst things you can do is have your head buried in your phone the entire time. Not only is it rude, but you're also missing out on all the fun. So put away the electronics and focus on enjoying yourself and catching up with your friends. You can even include a rule in the invite that phones are not allowed.

Make some space

If you're going to be inviting people over, it's important to make sure you have enough space for everyone to comfortably hang out. This means clearing out any clutter and moving furniture around if necessary. You want your guests to feel like they can relax and not be cramped up. If you have a large living room, you can even set up a dance floor. Just make sure there's plenty of space for people to move around freely.

Create a playlist

No party is complete without a killer playlist. Whether you're into dance music or prefer something more low-key, make sure you have a good mix of songs that will get everyone in the party mood. You can even create a playlist specifically for the party and have everyone contribute their favorite songs.

Clean up before everyone leaves

Last but not least, don't forget to clean up before your guests leave. This includes everything from putting away the food and drink to washing any dishes that were used. It's also a good idea to vacuum or sweep the floors so that they're clean for the next day. If you have time, you can even tidy up the furniture and decorations. For those closest to you make sure they stay and give you a helping hand, you can have fun and do the most bothersome chores with some music and have fun along the way.

Online Hangout

Sometimes life happens, and there’s just no way to see your favorite people in person. An online hangout spot is the perfect solution when distance strikes, but you still want to keep in touch with your family and friends. From clubbing on Zoom to talking books over FaceTime, there’s no limit to the different fun things you can do online. Yet sometimes Skype and Google Hangouts just leave you wanting a little something more. If that’s the case, there’s no reason that you can’t add a new and exciting option to your virtual hangout mix!

Whether you're throwing a small get-together or a large party, these tips will help you make it a night to remember. So invite your friends over and get ready to have some fun!
