Diwali Rummy party

1. Date & Timing

The first step is to finalize the date and timing for the party. It’s good to host the party a few days before the festival as most people would want to spend the festival with their family. Ensure you do not conduct the festival during the weekend as most people would be busy with their personal activities. The best day to host a Diwali rummy party is either Thursday or Friday, as it leads to the weekend. The next step is confirming the timing. Ensure it’s a late-night party so that people can head to the place after relaxing some time from their homes.

2. Budget

Fix a budget for your party well in advance keeping in mind the number of guests. Confirm the guests’ availability and then go ahead with the planning.

3. Invitation

A good and impressive invite is a must to make the party huge success. It’s better to use a deck of cards while preparing an invite as it is indicative of what’s in store. Whether you want to send an invite in a physical form or e-form or through communication modes such as WhatsApp, ensure it’s attractive. Replies to the invite would confirm the number of guests attending your party. Make sure to attach a copy of the rummy rules document along with the invitation so that viewers who are not in touch can get a hang of the game.

4. Decoration

Here comes the most important part. It’s very important that the venue of the party is eye-catching. Try to decorate it as much as possible and embellish them so that the guests feel “Its all about rummy”. Get that glassware and tableware with the playing card design.  Ensure you use striking color balloons usually red and black to give the atmosphere resembling a casino. Decorate your table with a card-themed table runner. Purchase sufficient card game related materials like wall hangings and banners to give a realistic feel. Ensure you use dim lights to give the users a feel of a casino. Remember, they are here for a party, so you want to make things as comfy as possible.

5. Food

Now comes the important part of it – the food. A good party is incomplete without good food. It’s always better to serve something light during such parties. Start off with a welcome drink and crispy starters. Appetizers are the savior of such parties. Light snacks like sandwiches, salads, along with a good drink should suffice. Alcoholic beverage is your personal choice. Make something like chips, fried nuts available to your guests throughout the course of the game. Fried foods go along really well in such parties and they are also quite easy to prepare.

6. Gifts

After the party is done, ensure you reward your guests with a small gift that fits your budget. Any Diwali rummy party is incomplete without gifts. It could be anything from a simple photo frame to wall decors. Do not forget to sign off with a thank you note to all the guests who made it all the way for your rummy party.
