Without further ado, let’s jump right into how to throw the perfect Kansas City house party for your loved ones!

Send Invitations Out

Step 1…send those invites out! Whether you go the Facebook event route or the e-vite route, you will want to make sure these invites go out well enough in advance so your guests can RSVP and you can start planning! 

Get Organized 

Don’t wait until the last minute to organize the details and get your house ready! Start planning early and envisioning how you want the night to go. Tidy up the house and ask for help if you need help! Most of your guests will be happy to assist you with party prep.

Decorate Or Have A Theme

Buy some flowers for the dining room table or some lights for the backyard! Themed parties can also be a hit. A few fun favorite themes include murder mystery, Kansas City Chiefs, luau, fiesta, casino night, gatsby, or 70’s! Once you pick your theme, head over to Pinterest to get tons of great ideas. 

Set Up The Music 

Music is key! Make sure you have a long playlist set up beforehand to play throughout the party. Music is great if there is ever any silence, and you can ask your friends to send you their favorite songs to add to the list!

Make Some Signature Cocktails

Signature summer cocktails will be the highlight of the party! Craft the perfect rum runner or drink of your choice for the warm summer night. Your guests will be impressed by your mixology skills!

Build A Charcuterie Board Or Cook

Everyone loves charcuterie boards, and they are as simple as can be to make! Find some nice cheeses, meats, and fruit… and voila! It will be a party favorite. If you like to get crafty in the kitchen, find some online recipes and work your magic! Don’t forget gluten-free and vegan options just in case your guests have certain dietary restrictions.

Set Up Outdoor Games

A game of cornhole or ladder toss is just the right way to get the party started! Be sure to set up some outdoor lawn games to really please the crowd if it’s a nice night. If the weather doesn’t permit, make sure you have a deck of cards or some board games ready!

Have Fun!

We know hosting events can be stressful, but try to have fun! You’re in a room with all of your favorite people and you planned a great party. Once all of the pre-party details are taken care of, don’t worry about the rest. Relax and enjoy now!

Katy says: “We recently moved into our home that Hearthside built and we couldn’t be more pleased with how everything turned out in our home! The entire process was smooth and they were very clear in their communications with us on what to expect and where we were at in the process. They were always very quick to get back to us on questions we had and stayed on schedule.”
