From food and drink to games and entertainment, continue reading to find a concise guide to hosting a family party at home.
Now, even if you are generally a family of incredibly healthy people whose only foray into alcohol is that celebratory glass of champagne to toast in the new year, there is bound to be a couple of people who love to relax with booze.
To ensure every family member is catered to, spend time finding out the favorite tipple of everyone you can, and instead of bulk-buying just one or two types of drink, instead, buy a smaller selection of different types of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
Naturally, your family is going to want to feed and unless you are particularly adept at catering for more than ten people and know the specifics of their likes, dislikes, and dietary requirements, ordering a takeaway is far easier and indeed, more cost-effective.

Now the food and drink are arranged, it is time to turn your attention to the entertainment element of your family house party and for this, you need to have a quick count of the average age of your loved ones.
If there are only a few children and they are on the younger end, then you can rest assured that, even though it may be slightly later than normal, they will go to bed with plenty of time for the adults to carry on drinking and playing games. If there are many children of differing ages, then the games you choose should, of course, be age appropriate and a classic parlor game such as charades would definitely be a good shout.
The Little Details!
Finally, the fourth most important element of hosting a family gathering at home is to take some time to make your home as warm and welcoming as you can, with a few additional details.
Make sure that there is ice in the freezer, enough napkins, and a fresh bunch of flowers in the entry hall where people will come in, and if you have access to a music streaming service, you could spend a couple of hours adding family-appropriate tracks to create a playlist to have on in the background.
Other little details which will make a huge difference to the overall atmosphere and vibe of your family party could include ensuring that your home is tidy, yet not too tidy, there is air freshener in the bathrooms, and that there are a couple of scented candles burning in the living room.
