Stages To A Party
your shower into three stages, you can keep the party flowing.
Don't let it
get stale or your guests will get restless. For a three to three and
a half hour party, allow about 45 minutes to an hour per phase.
First Stage - Introductions, games, setting the mood
As people arrive, introduce them to everyone, serve beverages and
hors d'oeuvres. Socialize or play an easy game
to get everyone mixing. This is also a great time to light some relaxing
Stage - Dinner and dessert
Serve food during this phase.
You may serve dessert immediately after the meal or wait until after
presents are opened.
Stage - Play any games or other activities you have planned.
If you feel that the opening of presents is going to take a long time,
you may want to skip the games and serve coffee and cake while the
bride opens presents. As the guests leave, present any additional
party favors that were not
part of the table setting.
