One of the inexpensive and easy deal for a scrumptious mid-night supper could be ‘Baked Potatoes’. Ensure to grab some of the biggest potatoes available at home and load them into your oven at around 10:30 PM at 400 degrees.

To create a party environment at home, decorations play a vital role. It is not a mandate to spend a fortune to make your decor worth partying. Simple items like hanging few colourful ribbons along lighting fixtures, doorways, lamps etc. or illuminating the house with candles or hanging some glittery handmade paper snowflakes may set your home ready for a rocking party.

Go For a BYOA Affair

The concept of BYOA (Bring your Own Appetizer) may sound little unusual, but your friends will find it a fun in bringing something relevant to their taste. It may be a cheese cake, some raw veggies and hummus or might be a container of mixer nuts. All you need to manage is serve them presentably!

Great Music

Great Music

Music is definitely a great fun-booster for any party. Whether soft or electrifying, it helps in crafting the party mood. You may start your party with some soothing tunes and let your guests enjoy munching which can be followed by some foot-tapping numbers to drag them to the dance-floor later on.

Try to follow the ‘social host’ law by refraining your drunken guests to drive back home. Insist on them to sleep over at your place or you maybe call a cab.
