5 Chic Ways To Throw the Best Party on the Block

Throwing a party is the best way to gather with friends and family in celebration. One of the most important aspects of throwing an event is having enough food, drinks, and decorations. However, it’s also essential to know how to throw a great party. So, the following are some ideas to throw the best party on the block.

Maximize Your Lighting in and Out of the House

You should place lamps and string lights by the front door. Put a lamp near your patio seating area to provide extra lighting outside when entertaining guests on summer nights.  A window candle is an excellent way to add some festive ambiance inside, but if you are concerned with safety, make sure to place it in a sturdy holder that can’t tip over easily.

Don’t forget about outdoor lanterns either – they are perfect for backyard barbecues or pool parties where you want light nearby but not necessarily overhead.

Lights come in all shapes and sizes, so feel free to use them creatively throughout your space. For example, you might consider hanging a smart LED strip from the ceiling above dining tables or lining pathways with candles for special occasions like weddings or holidays.

Have a Creative Party Theme for Dress Up

Themed parties are always fun because they allow you to step away from the norm and celebrate an event. Themes can range from a Wizard of Oz party, or Disney themed party, for example. Of course, there are countless themes out there, so it’s really up to you how far-fetched or realistic you want them to be.

Having a creative party theme for dress-up will make your party planning a lot easier, especially if you’re trying to throw an adult-themed get-together.


Don’t Bake – Hire a Baking Company for Treats

When it comes to throwing a party, the more fun and entertaining you can make your guests, the better. One way is to provide mouthwatering treats that everyone will enjoy. Stop baking at home and hire a professional bakery instead. Hiring a baking company will save you time and the hassle of dealing with a hot oven.

Plus, they’re sure to have some delicious treats that will impress your guests – think cheesecakes, cupcakes, cookies, cake pops, all sorts of pies, tarts, or other goodies.


Hire a DJ That Understands the Party Theme

There are lots of DJs out there who can provide great music for the party. But not all DJ’s understand what it takes to make a successful event that everyone will enjoy and remember. So when you hire a DJ, be sure they have experience with the type of theme or style you’re going for.

Don’t get stuck with a DJ who doesn’t get what you’re trying to do. Instead, make sure they know your desired theme and music tastes so the guests can feel good.

Have a Photo Booth With Props

Decorate the photo booth with many props and different backdrops, such as a shabby chic backdrop or an inner-city street scene. This will provide guests with plenty of photo opportunities to take memorable photos. You can also use some fun Halloween party costumes for decoration.


With these ideas under your belt, you are sure to throw the chicest party around. Your guests will be talking about this for weeks.
