Despite the pandemic, it’s hard to stop attending parties, especially with Halloween right around the corner. Here are seven quick tips on how to host a safe party during the holiday season:
Host your parties outside
While the weather changes to colder temperatures, you can still hold parties outdoors. Find a cheap fire pit from Walmart or Home Depot. Or you can make your fire pit with bricks stacked together. With a bonfire, you can have a warm party going all night long.
Provide extra hand sanitizer and cleaning supplies
For your guests to feel safer, provide hand sanitizer. Make sure there is a big bottle in each room for guests to use. If at all possible, provide wipes for your guests to clean off an area they have used or will be using.
Create an RSVP list for the guests
By creating an RSVP list, you can know exactly who will be attending and how to make your house safer for your guests to attend. You can tell guests they must reserve a spot at the party due to limited space.
Limit the number of guests in each room
Once you know how many people are attending the event, you can estimate how many people can safely fit in a room. Guests will also be able to hear one another better with a limited number of people in each room.
If you are attending as a guest, try to distance yourself from attendees you don’t know. Stay with your friends. Don’t try to be too social and meet new people. Doing this can help prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Help the host
If at all possible, help out the host in any way you can. Bring any supplies you can to help keep the party safe. Ask the host if there are any rules or anything they need help doing. Make the host feel less stressed and do your part to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Remaining safe during a party is paramount in these times. But, don’t let this overtake the party. Becoming too preoccupied with hand sanitizer, guests per room and safety precautions can ruin the vibe. Be mindful, but enjoy your time with your guests.
