Throwing a party is a creative yet simple activity:
Invite people you like…
Provide food and music you like…
Combine and mix gently.
I think the reward for a host is knowing that their guests are having a good time.
In addition to being a DJ and Master of Ceremonies I am also a Pianist and lead a number of ensembles in performances throughout Southern California.
In this episode I relay a story of playing piano for 2 different holiday parties and the common thread that bound them.
The first was a spirited gathering involving the entire neighborhood of the Venice Canal Historic District complete with a flotilla of decorated boats that cruised up and down the canals.
The second was a Christmas house party; an open house. Neighbors and friends were coming and going. At any given time there were about 75 guests in the house. The kitchen was the focal point for food in a very large room with tall ceilings where the grand piano was.
The hosts of both parties thoroughly enjoyed creating their party making sure their guests had everything they needed.
It might have been that hiring a caterer with service staff would have made the task of throwing these parties easier for the hosts. Though they worked hard to see to every detail, it was evident that their parties were a success and they had fun.
And now please enjoy 2 Successful Parties. Wedding and Event Podcast Episode 71.
