Tips for Hosting a Birthday Bash in Your Miller & Smith Home

Posted on May 25, 2017 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

It’s your birthday; so celebrate like you want to in your brand new Miller & Smith home! Our homes are the perfect spot for hosting a party, especially when you are planning to celebrate a birthday, whether it’s for you or the kids! Send out those invites, hang the streamers, blow up the balloons, and see some of our tips for hosting the best birthday bash in your Miller & Smith home.


Be Prepared

There’s no way to know what might happen at a birthday party (cake fight, your uncle singing karaoke) but you can stock up on most items ahead of time for those unpredictable moments! All of our homes at Miller & Smith have ample storage space, whether it’s kitchen cabinets, closets, or the garage. Make sure you have extra napkins and paper towels on hand, as well as cups, plates, or any other essential hosting supplies.


Take Advantage of Space

Our Miller & Smith homes were designed with you and your family and friends in mind. The open floor plans are perfect for mingling with guests and having everyone gather around to watch you open your gifts! Our spacious kitchens ensure that everyone will get a slice of birthday cake (funfetti of course) and there will be plenty of room for snacks and drinks.


If the weather is nice, take advantage of your outdoor spaces by creating a cohesive indoor/outdoor party area. Grill up a tasty dinner menu on the patio, host a water balloon toss in the yard, or blow out the candles while watching the sunset on the deck!


For the Kids

If you are throwing a strictly kid-friendly party, have no fear! We know that the terrible twos can be intimidating, but even they won’t be able to resist the charms of your home, like a kids rec room or loft area. Prepare by designating certain spaces for different games and activities, and already have plastic tablecloths set up at the tables. Our floorplans offer a wide variety of design options, so if a little one becomes a party pooper and needs a nap, there will be plenty of space in an additional bedroom or guest room.


For the Adults

On the other hand, if this is the type of birthday party involving champagne and canapés, we’re in! With tons of counter space in the kitchen, you’ll be able to set up a DIY bar for people to help themselves to their own beverages. Make a birthday playlist and hear it throughout the open spaces of your home; it might even inspire a dance party!


Whichever direction you take, be sure to prepare a tour for your guests who haven’t yet seen your new home, and share your party photos with us on Facebook!
