I would add choose the music in advance, check the bathroom's ready (plenty of paper and more than one hand towel) and that everyone knows where the empties go and the ashtrays are. Stock up on the Spray 'n Wipe and if its a big one then invite people over for a 'clean up and fry up' breakfast the next morning.
