So much goes into throwing the perfect party, from the food, venue, guest list and entertainment. There is a lot to consider when you’re planning your bash from scratch. Planning is key to the success of the event so here are a few tips to help you along.
Get connected with the right people.
If you’re planning an event in an unfamiliar area or you just need a bit of help, try a catering solution like Hosbay that connects restaurant, bar and hotel owners with high-quality equipment. The benefits of using a solution like this s but they have the best and most reputable contacts at hand so you know the companies you’re using are of the best and won’t let you down on your big day.
Does the venue have the right stuff?
The venue sets the context for your party. If the location is right, the rest of the night can flow easily. One of the first things you should do when planning your event is finding the perfect venue. Many times, you can’t have you bash at a certain spot because they don’t have the right facilities. Imagine you found the perfect place but couldn’t have your event there because they don’t have a bar. This doesn’t have to be the case as with Hosbay you could just hire your own bar equipment Sydney and have your party anywhere your heart desires. Suddenly the beach becomes the perfect party destination.
Make the food do the talking
Next, think about the food you will serve. Remember to consider the time of day of your event as that could affect the kind of food you will serve if your event is in the morning, consider serving breakfast foods like eggs, fritters, oats and yoghurt bowls. Fruit platters are also great options for morning events. If your party is in the afternoon or midday, lighter meals like soups, salads or quiches are a good option. Finger foods like sandwiches, spring rolls or kebabs are also suitable if it’s not a sit-down affair. If you’re planning a party at night, it’s generally expected that a meal is served. Here almost anything goes but consider serving meals that can be prepared mostly in advance to cut down on preparation time and allow everyone to be served at roughly the same time.
Win their favour with a favour
Though not expected, party favours are a great way to send your guests home with a little piece of the party. The options here are endless, but try to relate the favour to the theme or party’s cause for celebration. Gender themed gifts like iced cookies or notebooks are great for baby showers. Small succulents or pot plants are perfect for a garden party or wedding. If your budget allows, a photo booth that prints out photo strips are perfect as the strips serve as favours. Small trinket toys like cars or bubbles are great for kids’ parties. You could even make little treat-filled party packs but be sure to check for allergies when you plan the treats.
