If you are hosting a party or event at your house and you are starting to worry about how you're going to accommodate all the people, make sure you take care of some key issues that can turn into problems while the party is underway. You want to make sure that you have somewhere for people to put their vehicles, somewhere for the guests to go to the bathroom, and you have to know the restrictions in your area. Make the following arrangements when you are ironing out the details for your party.
It doesn't matter if you think people will come and go throughout the day, you may end up having a rush of people at once and you want to make sure you have adequate parking for all. Alert all of your neighbors that you are going to have several cars coming in and out, and those that you feel comfortable with ask if you can use their driveway. It may be easiest to park your own vehicles in their driveway so that people can easily park in yours. Arrange for parking in advance so you don't get in trouble the day of the event.
Not only can it be gross and annoying to have tons of people using your toilets, but it can be hard on your septic system and you may end up with a huge line out the door. Instead, have a couple of portable toilets dropped off to use for the party. People can easily use these when they want, they won't feel odd using your personal bathroom or making a mess, and you won't have to clean anything up afterwards. The portable toilet company, like RCS Inc for example, stocks the units with paper and hauls them away.
You don't want the police knocking on your door to tell you that you are breaking a law once the party has started. Make sure you know all of the noise restrictions in your area, what time these go into effect, and if there are any laws that you should be aware of.
These are major things that can't go overlooked when you are starting to plan your party, and when you have sent out the invitations. Make sure that you handle all of these potential issues in advance, so you don't get stuck on the day of your party trying to find a place for guests to park and pee, and so you don't have to shut down the event early.
