Let's have a party!!

HAFLA حفلة
Explanation:
HAFLA is the modern standard term for "party" in the sense that you described.

The pronunciation varies regionally, mostly affecting the last vowel, which in Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Jordan is pronounced more like an I or an E.

Technically speaking, there is a silent T at the end, but since it is silent, I did not include it in the transliterated version.

The H here is not a regular H, but a peculiar Arabic sound. You may want to sample it by having an Arabic-speaking person say the word for you.

Enjoy your party!
