I’ve been to a lot of parties. Some of them were more fun than others. I was just thinking back to some of them, and trying to figure out why some celebrations were great and some were not so great. There are all sorts of things that either work well or go wrong, but I guess I realized that one very important factor is the venue for the celebration. You want to make sure that you choose a good place to hold your party. It’s a big decision because you need to set it in advance. You can’t just announce it to people the day before the party, especially if there’s going to be a bit of travel or distance involved.
Now, in some cases, it’s great if the party is held in a friend’s place. After all, since it’s a home or pad, then you have a lot more freedom to do what you want there. You can move the furniture around, or bring in additional furniture. As long as you don’t make too much noise or somehow annoy the neighbors, you’ve got a lot of freedom and flexibility. So that can be great.
But in some cases, it can be better to hold the party somewhere more neutral. You don’t want to hold the party in someone’s home, if the host isn’t really all that enthusiastic about it, or lays down too many rules. So to keep people happy, you can choose to reserve a place in a venue like the Bella Vista Napier motel or somewhere similar. The idea is that, as long as you follow the rules of the place, you can all have a good time. It’s not super expensive, and there may be particular rooms or venues in the motel or hotel which are really designed to handle larger gatherings of people.
