Your arrival at a party says a lot about what type of time you expect to have while you are there. Obviously, a dinner party, bar mitzvah or other serious celebration should be treated with gravity, but when you are headed out to a blow-out there is no reason not to announce your arrival with a bang that lets party-goers know that the soul of the party has arrived. In this article, we will discuss how to arrive at a party in style.
Things You'll Need
- At least 5 friends to arrive with you
How to Arrive at a Party in Style
Rent a limousine for the evening. Pulling up in a limousine lets people know that you brought a good time with you. It implies that you are ready for a big night and are taking the event seriously.
Plan a pre-party of about 30 minutes. Invite five to ten of your friends over to your house for a pre-party. You can serve light drinks or shots, play music and talk about what a good time you are about to have. This will get everyone in a positive mood and set the tone for the evening. You also may wish to coordinate an eye-catching article of dress during the pre-party. For example you might all decide to wear top hats or carry jeweled canes. This is just another way to indicate that you are ready to have the time of your life when you arrive at the main event.
Arrive about 45 minutes late. As we discussed, if the party is a serious celebration such as your grandmother's ninety-ninth birthday or company picnic, none of this behavior--particularly a late arrival--is appropriate. However, if you are attending a late-night blow-out, in order to make a grand entrance it is necessary to arrive after most of the other guests. 45 to 75 minutes late generally will allow time for crowd to build but not mortally offend the host.
Make a lot of noise while entering. When you get to the scene of the party, pile out of the limo with loud enthusiasm. Do not be rude, just express excitement. Positive comments like "Wow, she really outdid herself tonight," and "This place is rocking!" help make guests inside aware that a lot of positive energy is headed in their direction.
Acknowledge everyone. Greet everyone. One of the best ways to get noticed in a positive way is to say something nice and positive to everyone. Shake hands, slap backs and compliment outfits, drinks, music and decor. Everyone will be delighted you arrived and impressed with your positive, fun-loving style.
