We all want our event to be the party of the year, but thinking of unique ideas to help your party stand out is always difficult. We’ve compiled a list of tips and ideas to help you throw an unforgettable event.
Plan, plan, plan
Making sure your event runs smoothly takes carefully planning, so it’s definitely best to start early. Leaving yourself plenty of time ensures you won’t be caught short the day before. Plus, your guests will always appreciate advanced notice of your event so they can save the date – whenever that may be!
Consider hiring caterers
No matter what type of event you are planning, it is always a good idea to hire caterers. This will leave you free to entertain your guests, while the food is in very capable hands. After all, no host wants to spend the whole night in the kitchen and miss out on their own party. Caterers can also provide expert knowledge on exactly how much food you need; you don’t want to find out you don’t have enough on the day.
A killer playlist
No party is complete without good music. Invest in a good speaker system to keep all your guests entertained and to set the right mood throughout the night. Start the night with calmer music while you eat, maybe opt for acoustic music, and save the dance songs for later in the evening to really get the party started.
Getting creative will ensure your party is unique and will definitely be one to remember. You could try making your own cocktails or mocktails. These can be as simple or as creative as you like and you don’t necessarily even need to buy a cocktail shaker. Start with a simple mojito or daiquiri to add a fun and unique element to your event.
Alternatively, you could try your hand at making your own ice cream to offer something a bit different to your guests. To really impress you could buy an ice cream freezer to display your homemade dessert. This is not just a one-off purchase but can be used throughout the year to store and display your ice creams.
Consider everyone’s needs
In life, it is impossible to always make everyone happy but do try to keep in mind the needs of individual guests. You will need to cater for any vegetarians or anyone with other dietary requirements and provide both alcoholic and soft drinks. Be aware that you might need to provide blankets or heaters if you intend to sit outside. Small gestures like this can make a big difference.
Most importantly, have fun!
To throw a party to remember you could hire a photo booth for your guests to document the night and some booths could even include a range of props. The most important thing to remember, though, is not to over think too much, relax and have fun!
