    Default Need a word for "Party"

    Hi! My first post/question....we are hosting some new friends from Colombia and are having a party for them. Can you tell the the Spanish translation for "party"? Fiesta is the only word I can think of, but this is like an evening reception, and fiesta doesn't seem right--is there another word that suggests a convivial gathering?

    Hola!!!

    Welcome!!! And congrats on your first post!!!

    Regarding your question, I think "fiesta" is not incorrect... You could also say you are having a "fiesta de bienvenida" for your friends...

    That's one option... Let's see what other people say...

    Saludos!!!

    Perhaps you could use the word "reunión", it's something like gathering or "get-together"... That's the only other alternative I can think of! Hope it helps!

    Hola Gise!!!

    Si, creo que reunión también es una opción correcta... De hecho, "fiesta de bienvenida" es mas formal, no?? Y reunion, mas informal...

    Dos opciones posibles!!!!! MommaLou, it's your choice!!!!!

    Alguna mas se les ocurre????

    Si, pero creo que "fiesta" le resulta demasiado informal... Habria que encontrar un termino intermedio para lo que quiere decir... Creo yo! =)

    fiesta de bienvenida, it´s more like a collocation too, and it´s not either too formal or informal...

    Thanks, AnaLaura!!!! I think they are all valid options.. It depends on the context and where she would like to use it or write it, right??

    I'd use just "reunión". The other options are either too formal and "fiesta" does not convey the exact meaning

    I think that you can translate it as "fiesta de bienvenida" and it would sound perfect. :-)
