The keys to making your next event a success.
Having a party can be fun for your guests but planning it can be a real nightmare for you. There are several things you can do yourself or you can use a party hire, event hire, or marquee hire in Brisbane to help out with some or all of the prep work.
The first thing you have to do is to decide on a theme. This isn’t always a requirement but it can definitely help you to pick out the type of music and the forms of decorations you will want to use for your party in advance.
Then you will need to make an invitation list. Don’t be afraid to invite slightly more people than you may be able to fit, and don’t forget to ask for RSVPs. After all, of the people you invite, there is a possibility that not may be able to make it. The last thing you want to do is to end up alone in your own party. An Event Hire professional can actually take care of the hassle of making and sending out party invitations. If you’re on your own, you can also send e-mails or even make phone invitations as well.
Once that’s done, plan the menu. Using a party hire coordinator will always be your best option as they can place the orders at a delicatessen for the party platter you have selected. However, you should assemble the menu three weeks before the party and compile a shopping list if needed to get all that done ahead of time.
The great thing about a party hire is the fact that they will not only help with the pre-party prep work, but they will also take care of the clean-up afterwards so keep that in mind when setting up your party.
About two weeks before the party, you should start by making sure that all of your silverware and glassware are nice and clean and that you’ll have enough for all of your guests. Also, clean any tablecloths and cloth napkins that you and iron them as well so that your guests feel like they’re partying in a fancy banquet hall.
Then you should concentrate on the music that you will be playing at your party. If it’s a cocktail party, you don’t want to pick heavy metal as a song choice. However, you don’t want to pick music that is so soft that it will put your guests to sleep. Plan your playlist a week or two in advance.
Clean your house a week before your party and not before. The reason for this is that if you do a thorough cleaning weeks before, it will likely return to a messy state or a state which might not be as presentable to your guests as the house was when you had first finished cleaning. Then you’ll be forced to do more work the week of the party.
Also, know the type of guests you will have and check to make sure that you have the right amount of alcoholic beverages available. Hire a bartender and/or an open-bar service for your party.
Then finally set the stage for your big event by arranging furniture. This will ensure that your guests will be able to move about easily in your house without knocking things over and breaking things.
Following all of these tips will create the right ambience that you will need for a party that is virtually hassle-free to prepare for.
