The holidays are just around the corner. Storefronts have already started to get festive both off and online to create a buzz. As you start to think about your upcoming personal and work parties, you will want to take the time to get in the party planning mode and make all the arrangements for your holiday party.
The holidays can be a stressful time, purchasing gifts, attending other functions. Why not get ahead of the game. Whether it’s an elegant sit-down dinner or simply a cocktail party, it doesn’t have to be stressful. Classic Event and Tent Rentals can help you create the perfect experience for all your guests. Here are a few tips for hosting a blissful holiday gathering.
Set the budget. Set a budget and stay within that budget. It’s very easy to go over budget if you’re not careful and then you end up sacrificing on the important details or having to shorten the guest list. It’s imperative that you prioritize the things that are important to you, focusing on the small details later.
Create the Guest List. Ensure that you have consolidated a list of people that you want to invite to your event. This way you know the number of guests to anticipate. This will help you better determine the size of the venue and perhaps the setting. Check your list twice . . . to know who’s bee naughty or nice. Your guests really make the party!
Book your venue and select the theme. It’s important that you book your venue early to secure the perfect setting for your holiday festivities and avoid the stress of having to come up with something last minute. The theme of your party is also very important as it sets the tone for your special gathering. Once you have the venue and the theme determined, you can get to work on the invitations. With the hustle and bustle of this time of year, you will want to send these out well in advance so that your guests reserve the date. Then, you can focus on the details that will make your party one books.
Create the perfect experience – focus on the atmosphere. The atmosphere or theme of the party really sets the tone for your event. You want to give guests an experience, something to talk about and ensure that they enjoy their evening. The lighting, music, and décor are all key components. Classic’s attention to detail and superb customer care comprise the foundation for a successful event. Clients experience a personalized assessment of their event needs, resulting in a venue transformation that often exceeds their expectations. From an event’s inception, to its execution, Classic’s team of dedicated and detail-oriented event professionals provide unparalleled assistance.
Get creative with your guests. You need to ensure that there are plenty of activities to keep your guests entertained and that can help break the ice with guests that don’t know each other. Have a live band or DJ to encourage people to dance. Another fun option is a photo booth with some funny and festive props. Guests can take their group pictures home to remember the occasion. Or, you may want to hire a professional photographer to capture those special moments and post them for all to see. You could choose something a little more low-key like a wine tasting station, where everyone can sample various wines and learn about some different varietals. Make sure that guests have a memorable experience at your event!
