Deciding upon quantities of food to be catered is like a super-annoying math problem. So, here’s some the portions’ chart you should swear by and you’ll probably neither run out nor have too many leftovers.

Balloons, Anyone?

If you have some balloons to blow up at the last minute, but neither a helium pump nor much lung power – use baking soda and vinegar instead. When combined, they react to release carbon-dioxide which can help blow up a balloon.

If you’re going to be serving ice-cream at your party, why not jazz it up a bit? Decorate your cones to make them more irresistible. Coat the edges with cream and sprinkles, wrap the cones in funky paper, pipe on designs on the cones; the possibilities are endless.

Hosting surprise parties is just so passé. Instead, have little ‘moments of surprise’ in your party. Like balloons-in-a-box or booze-in-the-dessert and so on.

Dip It in Style

Isn’t serving ice-cream scoops such a pain? In the time that you scoop out the perfect portion, everything becomes a melting mess. So slice ice-cream with a knife instead – it is easier and more unique.

Perfect Ice Cubes

Most of us have seen nothing but cloudy ice-cubes in our lifetimes. So why not impress the guests with some crystal-clear, perfect ice cubes? Simply boil the water before freezing and you will have the desired effect.

If you’re hosting a party outdoors in the evening, light it up with glow-in-the—dark balloons. Pop a glowstick in each balloon before blowing it up and you’ll have a bunch of neon balloon bulbs to set the mood right!

What’s a party without chilled drinks served icy cold? But to keep them cool if you don’t have an ice box, freeze some water balloons, place in a bucket with the drinks and voila! No-drip convenient cooling!

Measure it Up

It works out best for everyone if drinks are not in unlimited but measured supply. Use solo cups to keep the flow of fluids in check – you probably didn’t know but the lines on them are meant for measurement.
