Ok, here goes… this is my 1st ever blog party (how exciting)! It’s the Ultimate Blog Party 2010 hosted by 5 Minutes for Mom and is running from April 9- 16th.
So what makes a great party?
- Friends & Family (can’t really have a party by yourself)
- Food (hungry guests are cranky guests)
- Music, Games, or Entertainment (no one wants to stand around twiddling their thumbs)
If you’re throwing a party at your house I think a comfortable number of guests is 6-8 (but in the case of the UBP- the more the merrier). You always want to have an even number so that for games noone is left out. Party food should include lots of finger foods (preferably non-greasy)- chips n dip, fruit tray, nuts, meat n cheese. And don’t forget some sweets also- brownies, m&m’s, cookies, etc. And of course, you need an assortment of beverages, everything from water & pop to beer & liquor… or just make it BYOB. Some of my favorite party games are Guitar Hero
I also love playing cards- euchre, spades, & cribbage.
Hmm, all this talk about party necessities is making we want to throw a party at my house… have to talk to the hubby about that one. Have a great day everyone & hope you enjoy the Ultimate Blog Party 2010!
