Make a list of all the things you want to do for your night
First of all, you need to decide on what type of Friday night party you want to have. Do you want a small get-together with friends or a family? Whatever your choices, make sure that it’s something everyone will enjoy doing for the whole evening.
Put on your Friday night playlist! Music is a great way to get people in the mood for Friday night. Pick tunes that are upbeat and happy so you can keep everyone’s energy up all evening long. If guests have requested, be sure to put on their song too because who doesn’t love some good music?
Offer activities for adults and children alike. If there are any kids coming, look if you can include them in the adult activities or think of something just for them. Make sure there are things like coloring books and crayons available because sometimes this will be more exciting than sitting around playing games with older generations.
Food!!!!! Nothing says Friday night quite like Friday night food. This is the one thing that everyone will enjoy and you should take it seriously. Make sure to have a variety of options for those who are vegetarians, vegans, gluten-free, or anything else because these days people don’t eat regular food anymore!
What about drinks? Keep in mind how old your guests might be and see if they would like something other than alcohol. If so, make sure there are plenty of nonalcoholic beverages available as well as some tasty mocktails too.
Have a movie night with drinks
Movie nights are a great way to spend time with your friends or family and enjoy a movie together. This is an easy recipe for how to have a movie night at home:
- Have some drinks available (wine, beer, cocktails)
- Pick a movie you all want to watch
- Decide what food everyone wants before the movie starts
Now that you’ve got this down, there are tons of potential activities throughout the movie! Throughout your favorite movies in Hollywood history, there are always moments where actors/actresses make faces or hilarious gestures during dialogue scenes. These may not be intentional but they’re still pretty funny when you notice them on repeat viewings. What’s even more interesting is that these reactions often happen within close proximity of each other. So why not make it a movie night activity to find the funniest moments in your movie and see whose reactions are most like those of famous actors?
Here’s how you can play:
- Pick a character from your favorite movie.
- Make an expression that best matches something said by that character.
- Take turns with friends as they search for the next funny moment.
Have a game night
Game night is a great Friday activity for your family or friends. There are several game night games to choose from, such as Taboo, Charades, or Cranium Crackers. Scrabble is another game where you will need to think and spell words. Word games, in general, can be very fun for everybody and they make you think.
However, since you do want to have fun and not compete with people too much you can use the word unscrambler to make your life simpler. As it says on Unscramblex, it’s your secret word game’s weapon. This way you’ll have fun and won’t be breaking your head over harder words.
These are just some of the many game night games you could include in this activity. The bottom line is that you pick something everyone loves.
Make a theme party
If you’re opting for something original, why not theme your party? You can theme to anything you want, and have the guests dress up accordingly. There are plenty of theme ideas, and most theme parties have a dress code to match the theme.
If you’re throwing a Halloween party, get some decorations that remind people of witches, pumpkins, ghosts…whatever your choice maybe! For Christmas, decorate with reds and greens for an extra festive feel. It doesn’t have to be a holiday theme either, theme your party to anything you want!
Play music that everyone likes
You should never fight about what party music to play because it will make people unhappy. The solution is easy: just find a playlist that everyone likes and enjoy the party. This way, no one has to compromise and everyone is happy.
You will all just have a great time singing and dancing to songs everybody knows and lives and that’s the whole point of any party. Before the party, ask people what their favorite party songs are and make sure to include them on your playlist.
If you really want people to have a great time, just play party music that everyone likes!
