Let’s face it: planning a night-long movie marathon at your own house can be a hectic task. But you can’t stress and take the fun out of the house party, right? There are just a few things that you should keep in mind while planning a house party so that you don’t have to panic at the last minute. So, if you want to enjoy just as much as your guests, plan ahead and keep these six tips handy before inviting your friends over for a memorable time.

Pick A Theme

For a movie marathon, start by picking a theme. Are you and your friends going to watch the Harry Potter Series with a magical theme, or you watch a classic romantic trilogy with your girl gang, or you’re looking forward to an action-filled Marvel movie series? After deciding on the movies, you can decorate your surroundings according to the theme chosen to match the vibe.

Popcorn And Coke

Having a station with buttery popcorn and everybody’s favourite soda is a non-negotiable for every movie night. But if you’re throwing a house party for a movie marathon, you should have some premade stock of popcorn with a variety of soda options that can last all night long. You can also prepare different types of popcorn, like plain salted, caramel, cheese, etc, to add more fun and flavour.

Arrange The Seating

Since you’re going to be pulling an all-nighter, you should arrange comfortable seating. You can grab a soft mattress with some plush cushions and arrange them on the floor. Also, ensure that you have great lighting to avoid any strain on your eyes. The most important thing is to keep the snacks near your seats so that you don’t have to swing to the kitchen to get refills.

Get Your Snacks

You can either choose to make quick snacks like fries, onion rings, or cheese nachos with dips, or you can buy ready-made bags of chips. Whatever you choose, ensure that you have sufficient snacks and as the host, you don’t have to get up continuously to make more snacks for everyone.

DIY Sundae Bar

If you and your friends have a sweet tooth, you can make a DIY sundae bar where anyone can make their favourite sundaes. You can have a few options for ice cream and a range of toppings like chocolate chips, chocolate sauce, sprinkles, caramel sauce, cookie crumbles, and so on. This will surely add so much fun to your house party that will make it memorable.

Make Cocktails

Finally, to add some fun to the house party, you can all make cocktails together. You can set up a station which can have base spirits, sodas, and basic ingredients like lemon juice, orange bitters, sugar syrup, ice cubes, etc. After making your own drinks, you can take the glasses to the seating area and have a great time while sipping a cocktail and watching movies.
