Birthdays, anniversaries, the last day of school, a sporting event, the end of a year - the reasons to host a party are as varied as the food, drink, and entertainment you might provide. But as fun as a party can be, you also have a responsibility to avoid house party dangers. Use this house party guide to stay safe - and keep others safe, too.
MIND THE RULES. Check your lease or homeowner’s association rules about hosting gatherings in your home and/or out on the lawn. If you don’t own your home, you need to know the answer to “Can renters throw a party?” before you even consider inviting anyone over.
