No matter the occasion, hosting a party is a fun opportunity to visit with friends and family, celebrate a holiday or birthday or reconnect. You can see friends or family who you don’t get the chance to see as often, play games and enjoy each other’s company.
Planning a party can be a little hectic, especially if it’s on the bigger side. You want to make sure you have enough seats, food and drinks for everyone.
Lots of people have soda at parties, but do you often buy too much or too little for your guests? Here’s our quick guide for buying soft drinks for parties.
Try to Get Something for Everyone
We all have our favorite sodas, but make sure you’re buying with your guests in mind. If you can, try to have a variety. Get some Pepsi or Coke, of course, and don’t forget the diet! Then, add some Sprite or 7-Up and a few other options, like Mountain Dew, Dr. Pepper or orange soda.
You can always ask your guests ahead of time which drinks they like the most and try to buy each type in the right amounts.
It’s Better to Buy Too Much Than Too Little
You wouldn’t want to completely run out of drinks halfway through your party — you’d leave your guests thirsty or have to run out and pick up more drinks. Save yourself the trouble by buying a little more than you think you’ll need. The worst case scenario is that you’ll have some leftover to enjoy. Or, you can even send some of your guests home with the extra soda.
Have Other Options Available
Some people don’t like soda or have medical conditions that prohibit them from drinking it. On the other hand, some of your guests might not be in the mood for a soda the day of your party. Be sure to have some other options available, like iced tea, lemonade and water.
