Are you feeling tired from work? Are you too stressed out in dealing with your boss or your officemates? Work can be toxic indeed. You got no choice but to spend most of your time at work because you got to pay the bills and secure your family’s future. However, you do need a break too. A simple party with your friends and loved ones will definitely lift up your spirit and help you relieve stress from work.

Some Australians hesitate to throw parties because they think it’s very expensive plus requires a lot of work and time. Well, that’s not true at all.  You can organise a simple get together with your closest friends and family members in the comfort of your own house or housing communities like Lendlease in Perth.  Yes, you do not need to hire expensive venues just to have a party.

Here are some tips to help you organise your party at home:

  1. Plan the date – first thing that you should do is plan the date of the get together. You should be doing this event on a weekend so more people can go. If it’s a family event, then Sunday is perfect but if you’re planning to invite friends or colleagues then you might want to check your schedule for Saturday evening.
  2. Invite your friends and family – once you decided the date for your event, make sure to inform your guests ahead of time. This is so they can free up their schedule to secure their attendance. You should allot at least a week notice.
  3. Think of a theme –it would be nice to think of a specific theme for your party. You can come up with some wacky ideas like costume party, Hollywood theme, superheroes or whatnot. It would be a lot of fun for sure! But you can also come up with other themes like pot luck, pasta Friday or Saturday, pizza, tacos or anything that you feel like eating that day.
  4. Prepare foods and drinks for the party – having a theme makes it a lot easier to know what types of foods and drinks to prepare. If you enjoy cooking, then you can personally prepare and cook foods. It would be nice to share to your family and friends your specialty cooking. But if you don’t like to cook or you don’t have time to prepare then you can consult catering service for the foods in this get together.Or you can ask each of your guests to bring food – pot luck style. It would be fun and intimate too!

Find time to enjoy the fruits of your labour too. You should unwind once in a while and one way to do that is to have a get together with your family and closest friends. That way, you will be able to enjoy more and prevent stress.
