Organising a party is never an easy task. It can sometimes feel impossible to please everyone! But there are ways you can take the stress out of party planning and even enjoy the process of putting your event together. Simply follow our tips below to organise your next party.
The right venue is key
The right venue is the key to a successful party. If you have a lot of people coming to something and need space for entertainment, then hiring a hall is best. If you are throwing a smaller event, then look for an intimate venue such as a cafe on the Central Coast. Usually, most cafes and restaurants will accommodate groups, as long as you let them know in advance.
You may also want to think about how much of a DIY job you want to do. A hall tends to be a blank canvas, so you have to do everything from scratch, while a café or restaurant will usually take care of everything for you.
Hire a caterer
If you’re having a party somewhere where you’ll need to supply your own food, then you should really consider getting a caterer in to take care of everything. If you are going to be supplying your own food, you need to make something that’s easy to serve and clean up, so you aren’t acting as waiting staff all night.
Some good ideas for party food include:
- Cold buffets
- Make your own burger/taco bars
- A pasta selection
Basically, anything where people can serve themselves will save you time and means you can enjoy the party.
Get the right entertainment
The right entertainment is also important, as it ensures people have something to watch and enjoy when they are at your party. It also brings people together and gets them excited about your party. From a live band to a DJ or kids’ entertainment, make sure this is sorted in advance.
Throwing a party doesn’t have to be completely stressful. If you spend time on the planning in advance, you can then enjoy your party, whether it’s for a birthday, wedding or other special event. From making sure you have enough space to ensuring the catering is simple and there’s plenty to do, you can take the pressure off yourself and enjoy your party a whole lot more, no matter how many people you’ve chosen to invite to your event.
