Anyone can throw a party, but not everyone can guarantee that their party is going to be a memorable one.
The key to a memorable party is in the detail. A lot of people make the mistake of organising the very basics and hoping everything will fall into place. Unfortunately, this is almost all but guaranteeing that your party will be anything but memorable.
Food & Drink
You have a really good opportunity to get creative when it comes to planning the menu for your party. Let’s be honest, the food is what everyone will be looking forward to the most! You should experiment a little with your catering options (venue permitted) – you don’t want to just choose standard sandwiches or buffet options. You could theme your menu so all the food is Indian or Chinese. What about having people create their own burgers or pizza? Or you could have a huge BBQ in which people can go up when they please!
The same applies when thinking about drinks. Are you going to have an open bar? Will drinks be supplied or is it simply buy when you want? How about creating a signature drink for the specific event? Having a simplified menu on hand can sometimes be very useful for a lot of people!
When it comes to organising the entertainment for your party, you could just hire a DJ and hope for the best, but we definitely recommend putting a little more thought into the planning. The entertainment – especially the music – will play a huge role in creating the right atmosphere at your party, so it’s definitely a good idea to think outside the box. We love the idea of hiring a live band to keep your guests on their feet throughout the entire event. You could even have both a band and DJ depending on your budget – each offers something different. How about including other forms of entertainment, such as a photo booth or magician?
Lighting is just as important as the entertainment, so it’s essential that you get this spot on when planning your party! You want to use lighting that is going to get the party started – and keep it in good spirits throughout. Creative lighting options such as coloured bulbs and strobe lights can really help to transform the entire look of an otherwise average venue. Light up letters and shapes are also extremely popular at parties – who doesn’t want to see their name up in lights? They also provide fantastic backdrops for photos – your guests will love it!
Lighting can make or break an event – which is why we are on hand to help you out. Our giant light up letters, numbers and shapes are the perfect way to add the WOW factor to your event.
