There’s never a bad time for a party, and with Malaysia having multiple holidays and long weekends, there’s nothing better than gathering your pals and just enjoy each other’s company.

To party, first you and your friends need a place to throw it. Step in humble you, who decides to offer your household to be the venue. With that offer, comes a huge responsibility, and a massive headache. Fret not, we’ve got some tips to help you be the host of a memorable party.

1. Consider a theme!

A killer party has to have a theme.Your ultimate goal is to fuel your own reputation of being a great party host. We’re not asking you to throw a party you can’t even remember, but consider the mood and the intention of the party before moving onto the next step.

Set aside a little bit of time to think about who is appropriate to invite, the dresscodes (so to avoid wardrobe malfunctions and inappropriateness), and what agenda should the party adhere to. That way you don’t have to beat yourself up trying to think of what to buy, and waste money unnecessarily in the process.

It’s made even easier with the amount of festivities we have here in Malaysia, just saying.

2. Is this a potluck?

Home events, or parties nowadays, especially when it is organised just amongst a small group, or with closest friends and families, have fallen down the trend on potlucks rather than the traditional catering. Food is a huge problem when it comes to throwing parties, as there are many things to consider, such as who can take what food, and so on. It is understandable then that a potluck is an easier alternative, with everyone tasked to bring a portion of their own choice of food to be shared amongst those present in the party.

That doesn’t mean you’re out in the clear yet, party host. You’d have to ensure that there is at least something from your end for the party. Here’s where another headache comes in: how do you make sure that you get the right portion of food, and how are you going to keep the hole in the wallet from getting any bigger?

Here’s where we have a solution for you: try Boozeat! They’ve got party packages that you cannot refuse, and it’s bound the make you the host of a party your guests will never forget.

3. How many can you fit?

Your house is not an event space, remember that. There’s only so much your home can handle, so make sure you have a guest list set up! Consider the type of home that you’re living in as well while you’re at it.

If you live in a high-rise unit like Maisson, Ara Damansara, there’s only so much you can fit into your unit, not to mention you would have to go through the hassle to register your guests names with the security guards there.

On a landed property, such as the terrace units in USJ 2 or even a semi-detached home located in Kota Kemuning Hills, you’d obviously be able to fit in more, but consider the space for other items as well, like your props, food, drinks and accessories. You wouldn’t want your guests to go bumping around each other or crashing into things now, would you?

In all of these cases, some homes, even the high-rise ones have multi-purpose halls you can book in order to accommodate the amount of guests you want to bring in. All you have to do is plan ahead!

4. Entertainment!

It isn’t a party without the entertainment value! Depending on the theme of the party, you can consider planning some things to lighten up the event. You wouldn’t want your party to be just a day where people bring food, eat food, just talk and then leave. It’s time to make an impression!

Entertainment in a party can be as simple as just having a small gift exchange during Christmas, to revealing your deepest secrets through a round of “Never Have I Ever”. You could even call Boozeat to bring in some drinks to give your pals the confidence they need in certain games!

5. Your background sound

Believe it or not, music has played a very big part in how an event turns out. Research has suggested that we are more susceptible to subtle cues depending on our mood. In a lively and busy setting, such as a party, this can turn into an important playing card for the host.

If you want a party or event to be lively, fast paced and good enough to end the party early (because you’re cool like that), play some high-tempo music, like rock or dance songs. If you’re organising something that is more relaxed, like a reunion, play some classical music so that your guests have time to calmly speak and reconnect with long lost friends.

Once again, think about the theme and the mood you want your party to lean towards, and then plan your playlist!

6. Be a law abiding citizen!

We at PropSocial emphasise this heavily when it comes to organising an event or a party. It may be something fun to plan out, but ensure that you follow the rules and regulations that has been set by your residence’s management, and most importantly, follow the law set in the country!

Ensure that you have informed your fellow neighbours and your residence’s management of the event that your organising so that you don’t get uninvited guests (i.e the cops/guards) to your party. As a party can sometimes be a lively occasion, be sure to keep the noise levels at a decent mark, especially after midnight, as it could land you in a lot of trouble if you don’t.

Remember to keep your party guests at check, especially if they had a little too much to drink! They could damage your property, or even worse, cause problems in the neighbourhood. Offences done at a house event, such as excessive noise after midnight and vandalism can be persecuted under the Minor Offences Act 1955, which could land you or your party guest with a hefty fine, or even jail time!


There you have it, things to consider while you organise an event at home! We hope that your next home event will be one that your guests, and yourself will talk about for years to come!
