15 Party Hacks That Will Change Your Life

I want to help you make life easier. And show you AH-HA inventions and ideas to make your party the best. You’ll be kicking yourself for not being the genius who thought of these first.

1 – Cut the Cake

When you have a plethora of guests to serve with round cakes, cut a smaller circle in the middle and now you can cut out twice as much!

2 – Serving Ice Cream – Idea #1

Prep ahead of time: Scoop ice cream into cupcake paper liners. Place in muffin tin. Store in the freezer until ready. Woolaaaaa!!

3 – Ice Balloon Balls

Fill up those water balloons with water, freeze them as use as ice! NO melting-watery-mess! And so colorful…

4 – Chip-Bag Bowl

 5 – Wash the Potatoes in Bulk

Wash-Potatoes-in-the-Dishwasher hack

Need to cook or mash or slice or whatever a lot of potatoes? Yep… you can wash them in there. (But hold the soap)

6 – Floating Flowers

Bubble wrap, apparently, has other uses other than stomping all over it until every little bubble has been smashed… and the popping sounds has successfully pissed off everyone in a 600 foot radius. It can float your flowers for decoration!

7 – Serving Ice Cream – Idea #2

Another cool ice cream hack – when you don’t want to scoop.

8 – Solo  “Measuring” Cup

Those red Solo cups are so much more than the universal sign for PARTY!

9 – Chip ‘n Dip

So simple! Lift that dip up and out of the way of the chips!

10 – MP3 Speakers

You could also use a wine glass (we all have plenty of those…)

11 – Dollar Bill Bottle Opener

Who knew!? Bills are made of cotton, and the friction makes a great grip for the twist-top beer bottles.

12 – Red Wine Stain

red wine spill hack

If your red wine spills… use white wine to get it out. (The reverse formula DOES NOT work!)

13 – Stack Up the Beers

stack beer hack

Take a binder clip from the office supply closet and you can start stacking those beer bottles to save space and keep them from rolling around.

14 – Label the Coolers

It’s a waste of time to open up all 7 coolers at the party to find your favorite beverage.

15 – Keep the Pitcher Cold

chill pitcher hack

It’s a sin to water down the beer or sangria or whatever you are serving with adding ice to the pitcher. Put the ice in a separate cup. Done.


What some great party hacks that worked for you!?
