The sun might be retreating and the nights might be drawing in, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t have fun. But if your idea of a fun night is witty banter, and catching up with old friends and family you might feel that the traditional house party isn’t for you. If you don’t drink or want to support a partner or friend who is teetotal, a more sedate occasion like a dinner party might seem like a better option than a traditional house party… but that would involve chaining you to the oven when you could be mixing with friends and loved ones.
The truth is that you can have an incredibly fun and lively party with nary a drop of alcohol served. You don’t need to worry about how your friends will react. They’ll come to see you, not to get squiffy! Besides, you can pull out all the stops to show them that you don’t have to drink to have a fun and memorable party…
Just so everyone knows what to expect, it’s a good idea to remind guests beforehand that they will be attending a dry party. They might want to go for a drink or two beforehand and that’ll be their prerogative. Just so long as they know that while you won’t be serving booze you’ll be serving up a whole lot of fun.
Get some help in the form of dry bar hire
There’s an infinite number of taste combinations that can be unlocked in the form of delicious and refreshing drinks without the need to add alcohol to the equation. But rather than experiment with different combinations of libations yourself and risk things going horribly, horribly wrong, why not consider a Dry Bar Hire? You can choose a variety of different styles to suit the theme and tone of your party and with a flexible choice of staffing, you’ll have a skilled professional on hand to keep your guests refreshed and entertained.
Alcohol can fill the void when there’s nothing to do. The more tiddly people are, the less inclined they are to restlessness or boredom. But if you have an itinerary of fun games to play, this will ease conversation and social interaction in a much more meaningful way than alcohol consumption.
No matter what kind of crowd you’ll be entertaining there are always a fun range of games to play together whether you want to yuk it up with a game of Cards Against Humanity or break out the Twister mat.
Don’t be stingy with the snacks
When your palate isn’t numbed by alcohol, everything tastes better! Make sure that you capitalise on this by serving up a great selection of snacks and finger foods to delight your guests. You can go as high or low end as you like, but try and make sure everyone has something tasty to snack on, even if it’s just a mini pizza bagel.
Take lots of pictures
Finally, be sure to take lots of snaps of the fun. Showcase the tasty food and delectable drinks and all those happy, smiling faces. Hopefully when you post them online you’ll show people that they can have a great time without drinking.
