Planning a party requires taking care of many details. But it is also a lot of fun! That might explain why approximately 130,000 people are employed in the event and party planning industry in the United States. If you’re interested in throwing the absolute best parties, these five tips will make your event unforgettable…and you’ll look like a party-throwing pro!
1. Choose a Beautiful Setting
Deciding where you are having your party is a very important first step. Are you looking at outdoor wedding venues? Indoor wedding places? If you are indoors, you will want to look at banquet halls and perhaps a beautiful ballroom.
2. Look for All-Inclusive Event Packages
Throwing the greatest party in the world does not have to be extravagant and over-the-top expensive. A lot will depend on the size of your celebration. A great tip as a party planner may be finding a facility with an on-site specialist who can create a custom package to fit your budget. When you’re able to purchase an entire package, with flowers, corporate catering services, decorations, and more, the price may be surprising…in a good way!
3. Consider the Catering Facilities
Food and beverages are key factors in throwing a great party. One thing to consider for your party is the option for corporate catering services. This is ideal for a wedding ceremony or any sort of party where refreshments will be provided. If there are accommodations for corporate catering services right on-site, providing appetizers, entrees and desserts of your choice, then guests will be able to enjoy dinner, cocktails and of course, the cake, to make the party absolutely perfect!
4. Provide Souvenirs of a Great Time
There is so much build up to a special party, and then it just seems to fly by in a blur. Before you know it, the party is all over! But it doesn’t have to be. There is a way to make your special event unforgettable. What you want to do is make sure you line up on site professionals who will make memories that will last forever for you and your guests. Photography and video, plus photos booths and more will be wonderful souvenirs of the party your guests will never forget.
5. Arrange for Transportation
Throwing the greatest party in the world isn’t going to be worth much if your guests can’t get to the party site! Make sure to look for a venue that has the ability to provide transportation for you. For instance, if your guests are arriving from out of town, the venue can transport them to their hotel or directly to the party. This may cost a bit more, but it is a good way to be sure everyone gets to the party…and that everyone gets there safely, too.
And as a party planner, you know very well that making plans to throw the absolute best party takes time, thought and organization. But once you are satisfied, then you can enjoy your party knowing that every detail has been taken care of for your guests. Remember, these tips are also great for other types of special events such as bridal showers, corporate events, and even graduation parties, as well as outdoor wedding venues.
