In every party, there are a lot of things that the host is not able to control. The most uncontrollable element in an outdoor party is the weather. The last you would want to happen during your party is for the rain to pour.
So, you do not have a choice but go with an alternative plan in order to save the party and ensure that you are your guests have a great time. Here are some ideas.
1. See the rain as a positive thing.
They say, when it rains, it’s a blessing. Try to make your guests think this way as well. The rain might disappoint or annoy some guests, especially those who do not want to get wet. But maintain your composure. Invite your guests inside immediately without panicking for it may cause a commotion. Lead your guests into your living room, or if you have a garage, you can use it instead. Give them some time to get warm. You can play songs about rainy days, to lighten up the mood of the group.
2. Proceed to indoor games.
Fun and thrilling games can change the mood in the party. It can be a bit hard to shift the mood from bad to good but as your guests begin participating and enjoying the games they will forget everything about the rain. Show your creativity in conducting outdoor games inside.
3. Sing the blues away!
Singing using a karaoke machine is a great idea to forget about the bad weather and just have fun. You can ask for volunteers to sing, or hold a friendly singing contest. If most of your guests do not like singing you might want to think of creative and fun ways to coax them to sing. Later on, you will just be surprised to see a lot of people requesting for a song to sing.
4. Turn to food.
You can proceed to serving the food. This will also lighten up the mood of your guests; or present them with desserts. Food, especially desserts have a great way of making people feel better, and of course satisfied and relaxed.
5. Let your DJ for hire do the work.
Professional DJs for hire, particularly those who have tons of experiences in parties know how to handle this type of situation. Perhaps they have gone to a party before where the rain almost spoiled it. When you go for c, make sure you talk about this possibility regarding the weather, how to handle the situation, and how to ensure that everybody still enjoys the party.
