Smart ways to plan a party for your partner

6th November 2018

We all know throwing the ultimate birthday bash can be stressful. So how do you deliver everything your other half wants to make it a party to remember? Here’s how you can use Hive smart tech to make it their best birthday yet.

Hide their presents without getting caught

Keeping their birthday presents a secret until the big day can often be a bit of a mission. So rather than panic throwing them in the laundry basket or shoving them under the bed, we’ve got a better idea. With Hive View, you can keep an eye on the clearest routes to the best hiding places – without your loved ones seeing. Now that’s sneaky!

Plan your party food

A successful party is never complete without a delicious selection of hors d’oeuvres…

  • Chips and dips are a must
    Fast, convenient, and a real crowd-pleaser – it’s hard to beat a classic chip and dip. We’d suggest getting more hummus, it’s always the first to go…
  • Healthy but not too healthy
    By all means put the carrot sticks and celery out, but don’t expect them to go all at once…
  • Know your guests
    Don’t offend your vegan friends by having nothing but hot wings and a cold cut platter. Having said that, make sure you have hot wings. People love hot wings.


Make the perfect cocktails/mocktails

It’s always nice to add a touch of merriment to your party. And because you’re in the comfort of your own home, it’s time to put your mixology skills to the test. Here’s a few of our favourite – and easiest – cocktail recipes for everyone to enjoy.

Raspberry Mojito

Gin and Elderflower Sherbet

 Turn the lights off with smart tech

Gone are the days of rushing back and forth to switch the light off. With Hive motion sensors and smart lights, you can automatically set the lights to come on or off. So if you’re about to walk in with the cake, or they’ve just come through the front door, we’ll help you keep the surprise a secret.

Last but not least, enjoy it! This is our golden rule for hosting parties, and that’s why it’s always best to organise them beforehand. If your other half his having a blast, the rest is sure to follow.
