Party advice for a wallflower??

So, when it comes to parties, I am...pretty terrible. Namely for parties where I don't know a majority of the people (but attend anyway because I was invited by the host). It never fails, everytime I find myself in a party situation, I'm that guy standing against the wall, one hand in my pocket and the other nervously clutching a cup of punch and taking sips (which I'm only doing to soothe the nervous-ness). It's not that I don't want to be on the dance floor or on the main floor socializing with everyone else I just get terribly nervous and unsure how to proceed, hence why I'm hiding behind my beverage. Advice/tips??

I have a party this Saturday for a friend of mine's Sweet 16 so I'll know her and a couple others but not the majority.

My advice; drink a lot of alcohol. I used to be really shy when it came to speaking to new people and I found it a lot easier after a bit of drink. Of course since the legal age is much higher in the US and it's a 16th birthday party.. that probably won't be an option for you. I'd say to try and be comical, but not make jokes that are risky. Try to approach people you don't know and pretend you do know them, I actually did that and it got me into several conversations.

Yeah, if alcohol is being served, have a little to break the ice, loosen you up some. That is ofcourse if you like it. Other then that just talking with people, don't wait for them to come to you, take the initiative and be the first.

The part about initiating conversations is what I don't excel at; I'm not really the type to go up to a random stranger and initiate conversations as I get nervous as to how they will respond. Now if said stranger does that to me I will enthusiastically reply and hold a good conversation but I have trouble initiating conversations due to fear of not getting a strong response and basically "flopping" on my attempt.

Yeah, just be aware that different people react to alcohol differently. For instance, my girlfriend's dad drinks several beers a night and becomes loud, extremely talkative, and annoying. I have 2 drinks max and just become chill and sociable.

Yeah, your first drink will intoxicate you no matter what you do. MY first drink was 1, single Mike's Hard Lemonade and I could barely walk. I still had control over myself, I just couldn't move right. I thought it was pretty funny, honestly, but now I can drink 2 drinks and move around fine, that first one ever just really hits you because your body is like "lol wut do?"
