7 Steps to Create a Delush-ious Party for Spring
Spring time is well and truly here – the days are getting warmer, the evenings are getting longer, and the start of a new season always has us in the mood for celebration! And what better way to celebrate spring than with a cocktail party – so how do you make the most of a beautiful afternoon?
Pick a Theme
Having a theme makes it easy to plan a party – and spring makes it easy to find a theme! Think beaches, nature, or florals – which are very in this season.
Send Out Invites
We all know how hard it is to get a group of people to all agree on one day for an event so make sure to send out invites at least a week in advance so that you don’t have to stress out too much on the day!
Sort Out Food
Don’t overcomplicate things when it comes to food! No one wants to spend the entire day of the party worrying if the food will be ready on time or if everyone is going to eat enough. Organise a few easy foods that don’t require a lot of cooking – and that can be served cold if all else fails – and get it all prepared the day before or the morning of the party. If you’re looking for some inspiration, we have some easy and tasty recipes that pair perfectly with DELUSH wines! (Make sure to check in advance for allergies or food preferences!)
Curate a Playlist
Nothing sets the mood like a good playlist, but no one wants to hover around a laptop for the whole night making sure the next song is good. Search out a few good playlists on Spotify, or have your friends send you their favourite songs so you can make a playlist that everyone is sure to like! There are also some great apps like Flo Music and GrouPlay where people can add to a collaborative playlist as the night goes on.
Mix Up Cocktails
Cocktails are the best way to get a party started, and to take the stress away from keeping multiple drinks cold! We have some beautifully simple cocktails made with our own DELUSH wines that are easy to put together and taste incredible (find the recipes here)! Find a few big mason jars or punch bowls and mix up a few cocktails before the guests arrive (just remember to grab a few bags of ice!). Add some beautiful signs to let your friends know what they are about to enjoy, and then sit back, relax, and enjoy your drinks!
Set Up for the Night
One of our favourite tips for the perfect party is to set up for the whole night in the beginning. What we mean is, think about things that will be needed later in the night (like candles for when the sun goes down, blankets for when the chill creeps in, and extra snacks) and get them out early! It will make the night so much more relaxed if you don’t have to keep running around to grab things when you would much rather be chilling with your friends and enjoying time with your friends!
Sit Back and Relax
Just before the guests arrive, make sure to take a moment for yourself and pour a nice glass of DELUSH wine to enjoy in the peace and quiet. Then all that is left to do is to turn on the music, wait for your friends to arrive, and have a great night!
