According to a OnePoll survey, the average American party host spends about $1,422.65 on party planning annually. Hosting a house party can be fun but stressful, from picking a theme, sending out invites, ensuring that the food is perfect, among other planning activities. Safety is also a prime concern that a great host must worry about before, during, and after the house party to protect their home, belongings, and guests. Here are five tips to make your house party as safe as possible.

Be careful with invitations

It isn’t uncommon for many people to use social media to announce upcoming parties. Although these social media announcements are convenient compared to notifying people individually, it comes with a significant security threat. Open invitations can lead to unexpected guests arriving, so your home can be overrun by many people you are unfamiliar with. Therefore, send out secure invites via texts, emails, and phone calls to ensure that no unknown guests show up at your party. Additionally, you can create a guest list to know who is at the party, so you can readily spot people who shouldn’t be there.

Keep mosquitoes away

Mosquitoes are uninvited guests you should expect when throwing a house party outdoors, at night, and in the summer. Therefore, it is crucial to take proactive steps to ensure that these pests do not ruin your party. For starters, you can invest in professional mosquito control services that will treat your trees, shrubs, decks, and other mosquito hotspots to eliminate adult mosquitoes and destroy their eggs. Also, you can invest in mosquito lamps, which are a candle and diffuser combo that can keep your event mosquito-free for up to six hours.

Lock up your valuables

The LA Times reports that there are about 300,000 items in the average American home. A few of these items are valuable items worth protecting when hosting a house party, so keep this in mind. Therefore, keep anything of value, including jewelry, watches, leatherware, wallet, and smartphone locked away from the main party. You can store these items in your bedroom if you aren't using it as a coatroom. Alternatively, consider investing in a robust safe or lockbox to keep these items, protecting them from possible damage and theft.

Keep guests’ items in one location

You are undoubtedly responsible for keeping your guest's belongings safe, and one of the best ways to accomplish this is to keep all items in one location. Many guests will show up with hats, scarves, and coats, especially if your event is in winter. Keeping these items in one place under lock and key ensures that everything is safe and accounted for. Also, you can spot any clever thieves more quickly if all items are stored in one location.

Declutter high-traffic areas

Many people will be coming and going in high-traffic areas around your home, so it is vital to keep this area clutter-free. Your furniture, art, and other precious items can get damaged in various ways if you leave them in such areas during your party. Consequently, temporarily relocate items in high-traffic zones to your garage or spare room to prevent accidental damage.
