You are throwing a party and you want it to be an experience everyone will remember. You’ve picked out a great venue and a decorating theme. You’ve even enlisted the help of friends and family to help pull it all together. Now you need to add the perfect touches to take things up a notch and make it a truly epic event.
1. A Front Row Seat for Everyone
Let’s face it, whether you are hosting a wedding, graduation party, or bat mitzvah, not everyone will be able to see what is going on upfront. By securing LED screen rentals and placing them throughout your venue, everyone can have a great view and feel a part of the festivities.
2. Professional Serving Staff
Even at a casual affair, having professional staff to serve refreshments and tend the bar can make a big impression. It will also take a huge amount of pressure and worry off of your shoulders so you can actually enjoy the party. Be sure to ask about tipping expectations beforehand so you can be prepared.
3. Instagram-Worthy Food
Food that looks too good to eat is an absolute must. Many guests will stop to snap pics of their food and drinks before they partake of them, so be sure that the presentation is worthy of the attention. Minimalist presentations work well for pictures, so avoid overcrowding plates. Simple table settings will provide a great background that highlights the food.
4. Killer Entertainment
Think beyond the traditional band or DJ for your next event and seek out unique entertainment experiences. With amazing options available in most areas, there is no reason to settle for the usual. You are only limited by your imagination, so go ahead and think outside of the box. A few ideas to get you started include:
- An Ice Show
- Aerial Dancers
- Human Topiaries
- A Mariachi Band
Even if you have a main entertainment portion, you will want to have music playing throughout your event. Let it play quietly in the background during meal service so that it doesn’t interfere with conversation.
Anyone can throw a party, but it takes extra planning to make it a killer party. Incorporating unexpected touches will ensure you deliver an experience that guests will remember for all the right reasons.
