Choose a party theme
Travel back in time to the glamorous 1920s with a Gatsby themed party or go for a futuristic vibe and ask your guests to dress like it's the year 3000. You could even tie in your food to the theme with speciality dishes. Browse our range of fancy dress outfits for inspiration.
Plan dinner table games
If you've got a dictionary at home, try this fun word-based game. Choose a guest to select an obscure word that no one has heard of. Then everyone writes down a definition of the word and the 'picker' reads them out. Your guests all choose the definition they think is correct and that person wins a point.
Find the perfect party outfit
From a classic LBD to sequins and sparkle, it's essential to make a great impression when you're hosting. Organise your outfit at least a couple of weeks before your celebrations to avoid last minute shopping. Take a look at Tu party dresses.
