In event planning, there is so much that you need to think about in order to ensure that people have the best possible time. When you’re throwing a party, specifically, you should always try to design it in such a way that each and every guest feels truly welcomed to the party, and that’s something that can be quite tricky to actually get right. However, if you can bear the following in mind, you should find that your guests feel a lot more welcome the moment they step into your next party.
Make The Entrance Clear
It might sound obvious, but one of the first things you’ll need to make sure of is that the entrance is as clear as possible to anyone arriving at the event. After all, if it is not entirely clear, then you are going to find that people arrive confused and get off on the wrong foot, which can make a surprising difference to how the rest of the event unfolds. So make the entrance as clear as you possibly can, with signs and whatever else you might need to make this work, and your guests will be happier with it.
Put A Drink in Their Hand
As your first act when someone enters the room, it’s wise if you simply step forward to greet them and put a drink in their hand right away. That is a very effective way to involve them, and it means that they are going to already feel as though they are at a party, which is obviously the whole point. Ideally you’ll have a range of drinks for them to choose from, but for the welcoming drink you can simply stick to something like a prosecco or a mimosa, and perhaps an alcohol-free option too.
Smile & Say Hello
The way you personally, physically greet people is going to be really important too. It’s simple: you just need to smile and say hello, and extend your hand. That’s a very simple thing to bear in mind, but as long as you do you will find that you’re going to have much happier guests in no time on the whole. So smile, say hello, and make sure that you are as warm as possible. That’s generally the best kind of approach you can take in all this, and people are always going to be grateful for it.
Make Them Comfortable
Finally, do whatever you can to put them at ease and make them feel as comfortable as possible right away. This is the kind of thing that can make an enormous difference to how the whole event pans out, so it’s something to make sure that you are working hard for. To make someone comfortable, just ensure that they have somewhere to sit, and take their coat if they have one.
