Vaping is one of the more effective ways to limit or even quit smoking altogether. It’s both less harmful than traditional cigarettes and doesn’t leave a lingering smell that many find frustrating these days. All in all, it’s no wonder many smokers who want to finally kick their tobacco habit have turned to vaping for help.
However, vaping is also a social activity, and you may have friends with whom you share your vaping experience. As such, it’s only natural that you might want to host a vape-friendly party, perhaps in the form of a game night, beer pong, or just hanging out in your backyard.
If you have no clue how to do that, don’t worry. To help you ensure that your party is as vape-friendly as possible, below, you’ll find some of the most useful tips you may want to follow. Explore the advice and learn how to organize a party that you and your vaping friends will never forget!
Get Some Tasty Food
Like with any other party, the food is a pivotal element of the entire affair, and to ensure that your guests enjoy themselves, you should put some delicacies on the table. There are two main ways to approach that.
The cheaper and faster way is to buy some fast food and snacks from stores. It’s hard to go wrong with a pizza or some wings, and you’ll always be able to find some chips and popcorn to go along with them.
However, if you are looking to impress your guests, vapers or not, and have some culinary skill to boot, you could always try cooking something. There are many recipes that are easy to make and don’t take a lot of time, but they’re also relatively impressive. For instance, you could prepare some sushi rolls or whip up a quick lasagna, and many of your guests will be surprised by how delicious some simple home-cooked meals can be.
If you want to go all out, you can borrow or buy some cool kitchen gadgets to help you prepare the food. Finding your chosen appliances is as easy as it gets – just open Google and type in the name of the thing in question and your location (e.g., ‘cream chargers Melbourne’). You should have no issues finding everything you need.
Make Some Drinks
Similar to food, drinks are an integral part of any party, and you have to ensure that your guests will have something to drink. If you’re planning on having alcoholic beverages at your party, you should get some beer or wine, depending on what your guests prefer.
If you want to go with non-alcoholic options, you could try to mix some juices or sodas together to create refreshing mocktails – vaping tends to dry out your throat and mouth, so a tasty liquid to sip is always a welcome addition.
If you want to go all out with this, you can even get some ice cream or whipped cream to top off the drinks.
Remember About Games
For many people, vaping is a social activity, and they enjoy chatting with their friends while vaping. However, there will be times when your guests need a break from talking and just want to sit around and play some games. This is where you need to be prepared.
There are many games that you can use for your vape-friendly party – some classics include card games like poker and blackjack, but you can also play some video games or even just enjoy a round of beer pong. In short, there are many ways you can go about this, and it all depends on what you and your guests prefer.
Perhaps most of your vaping guests are fans of the tabletop Warhammer 40000 games? Maybe the majority of the group is into playing Magic: The Gathering? Learn your guests’ preferences and try to accommodate their wishes to the best of your ability. After all, a party has to be fun for everyone involved, not just you.
Make Sure You Have the Right Accessories
Last but not least, you need to make sure that you have all the necessary accessories for your vape-friendly party. If you are inviting a large group of vapers, consider placing some power strips in strategic locations around the party area to help keep the guests’ e-cigarettes charged.
Additionally, you should have vape juice on hand for your guests. Although they are likely to bring their own supplies, it’s always a good idea to have some extras on hand just in case someone runs out.
If possible, get e-liquids in both nicotine-free and nicotine-containing options so that all sorts of vapers – from quitters to recreational enthusiasts – will be able to use your emergency stash.
As you can see, hosting a vape-friendly party is not that different from hosting any other party. Sure, there are a few things you need to take into account, but if you follow the tips above, you’ll be able to throw a great party that your vaping friends will never forget.
Remember to have some tasty food and drinks on hand and get some games to entertain your guests. Additionally, ensure you have the right accessories to accommodate all sorts of vapers, and you’re good to go!
Above all, relax and enjoy yourself – a vape-friendly party is still predominantly a party!
