Holiday time is over, yes I know… it is a bit sad knowing that we have to incorporate ourselves into our daily jobs and routine, but hey! That does not mean that you can’t have some fun in your time off. As we are entering to warmer weather, it is an excellent opportunity to enjoy from the sun and the outdoors. There are countless ideas to have fun, and even though the budget is a little tight after the holidays, you still have a blast by hosting a lovely, intimate and economical party with your loved ones.

If you think of it, having a small gathering at home does not involve a lot of budgets, you only need to consider a couple of things like food, comfortable seating and some entertainment for both, the adults and the little ones. Party rentals Miami can provide you with fantastic ideas that will suit your budget!

Tips to host a great get together at home

Fun activities

January is the ideal time for a fun time in outdoors, especially for the kids, but let’s face it, entertaining kids can be a brainer, as kids get bored quickly with toys and activities. A great idea is to rent a neat bounce house for your little ones. There are a ton of options for bounce houses in Miami. You can take your pick, from themed bounce houses to combo bounce houses that include more than one activity for kids to be distracted for hours! Most combo inflatables include a bouncing area, obstacle courses, and interactive games like basketball hoop or even boxing rings. Kids will have plenty of fun!

Easy food equals grilling time:

This time is fantastic to enjoy a delicious barbeque in your backyard. Now, if you don’t have a grill, this is the time to rent one for as much as 80 dollars. Throwing some meat and hot dogs to the grill is one of the easiest ways of serving food. As I call it, grill and eat, is that easy! Also, you can fix a healthy bowl of salad for everyone!

Barbeque and salad are perfect for self-serving if you add the proper utensils. Remember to pick some disposable plates, so you forget about doing dishes

Party supplies

I’m pretty sure you still have some disposable dishes and cups laying around since the holidays! Well, this is the time to put them to use! But if you still are missing some, here’s a list of supplies that you may need:

  • Bluetooth speakers
  • Home music system
  • Candles
  • Instant camera
  • Wine glasses
  • Cocktail Napkins
  • Ice bucket
  • Disposable cups for cold drinks
  • Disposable cups for hot drinks
  • Plates (disposable)
  • Utensils (disposable)

If your gathering isn’t as intimate as expected, you may need to call your party rental and acquire a few folding tables, tablecloths and chairs.

Be a smart drinker

Setting up a bar for a party can be expensive! But you can always find the way around it! Try to stock your bar with the basic drinks like vodka, rum or wine. If you are a wine drinker, you can look for the wine calculator app; this is an amazing tool that will tell you how many bottles of wine you should get, by just asking you a few questions. Also, if these holidays left you with a very restricted budget, you can even ask your guests to bring over their favorite alcoholic drinks.

Setting the mood with music

You don’t need tons of money to set the mood! All you need is music and maybe some lighting! Set up your playlist with all kinds of party music to get the groove on! You can even build an Arduino-Powered music player that plays your guest’s favorite tunes automatically! Is time to say goodbye to your Dj times!
