A gathering can have any purpose. You can host a gathering to celebrate a birthday or an anniversary. You can host all kinds of parties for any special event of the year - Christmas, Thanksgiving, Halloween, Fourth of July celebration and many others. You can host a party any time you want and for any reason possible. In fact, you do not need to have a formal reason to gather a group of people together to have a great time. If you simply like to gather friends or family members around, then you do not need a special occasion or a special reason to do so. The only requirement would be to make sure that your party is lively and fun.
If planning a big party or gathering, then the most dangerous thing that can happen is to have a boring party. Your guests will surely remember you as a host that gives out parties that lack life and excitement. Of course, there is an easy solution to this. You can have lively and fun parties as long as you know how to plan and prepare it well. One important element that you should never forego is making sure your party is fun. You can do this by having large group party games.
Large group party games need not be limited to the usual spin the bottle or even charades. You can have many fun and unique party games that can ensure your guests' participation. Of course, the type of games that you should plan should also be suitable for the kind of group you will be inviting. Be cautious of not being able to fit your games or activities with the group you have. For instance, you can be more flexible when planning to host a bachelorette party. The fun games for this type of event should of course be different from the activities and games of a formal dinner party where colleagues or superiors will be present. It is another thing altogether when hosting children's or teen's parties. Knowing the type of party as well as the type of guests will give you a good idea on the large group party games that you will prepare for.
If you have never hosted a large party before, then you can get great game and activity ideas from various resources. The easiest one is to do so online. One example of a site which is quite a gold mine when it comes to fun large group party games and party ideas is Direct Source Games.

That way, you will never have to say that you did not have a good source so your party was not successful as expected.
