Tips on host­ing an amaz­ing party

Kuwait Times - - LIFESTYLE - By Yalda Gol­shar­ifi

As you guys may know, my 31st birth­day was a few months ago and I hosted a 'trop­i­cal themed' birth­day party at my house. I throw a party al­most ev­ery year for my birth­day be­cause I re­ally en­joy the whole process. I love to host my friends and fam­ily and cel­e­brate my birth­day with them; it makes my birth­day so much more en­joy­able and spe­cial. There are a few tips that I like to fol­low to guar­an­tee a suc­cess­ful night and avoid get­ting stressed and over­whelmed which can hap­pen some­times.

1. Avoid stress by hir­ing a party plan­ner you trust

I al­ways hire a party plan­ner to help me out when throw­ing a party be­cause it takes away so much stress off my plate and gives me more time to think about the per­sonal touches I'd like to add to the party, which make so much dif­fer­ence to me! "Lets Sparkle" are my fa­vorite party plan­ners be­cause I feel like they un­der­stand my taste and what I like and they al­ways man­age to get it ex­actly right which is so im­por­tant.

2. Choos­ing the right Theme

The theme for my party was "trop­i­cal". Choos­ing a theme first is so im­por­tant be­cause it will help you to then choose a cor­re­spond­ing de­sign as well as food, mu­sic and even your out­fit. Not choos­ing a theme will leave you stuck and over­whelmed with your choices be­cause there is so much out there to choose from so its al­ways bet­ter to nar­row it down.

Food: Since my theme was trop­i­cal, I went for sushi as my choice of food for the night. I chose Ovo Bar to han­dle the cater­ing and they did an amaz­ing job. We had a sushi bar and canapEs which the guests re­ally loved. I did a tast­ing be­fore my party, which I rec­om­mend every­one to do when choos­ing a cater­ing ser­vice.

Mu­sic: Go­ing with my trop­i­cal theme, I set the mood at the be­gin­ning of the night with some live mu­sic which was a re­ally great way to start and gave a re­ally nice vibe as guests where ar­riv­ing. Later on in the night was when the DJ started. I chose DJ Hesh to play at my party. He's a good friend of mine and an amaz­ing DJ that I trust. It was so im­por­tant to me that my party had the best fresh, new mu­sic play­ing so I made sure to make that hap­pen!

Out­fit: I chose to go for a col­or­ful, fun dress for my party to match the trop­i­cal sum­mery theme. My dress was cus­tom made by Am­gad Al Adab, an amaz­ing de­signer and a good friend of mine. You al­ways want to feel and look your best dur­ing your party so make sure to choose some­thing to wear that makes you feel com­fort­able and beau­ti­ful.

As for my make up and hair, Coif­feur 17 hooked me up with a gor­geous hairstyle and Yas­min Oth­man did a beau­ti­ful make up look on me! I al­ways rec­om­mend go­ing to some­one for hair and make up that you are fa­mil­iar with and have tried be­fore. If not, then make sure you do a trial look be­fore your party just to make sure you are happy and com­fort­able with ev­ery­thing be­fore the day.
