First, you should consider how many guests you plan on inviting for your event. This way, you will be able to gauge everything else: the food, venue, activities, and souvenirs (if needed). In sending out invitations, also make sure to mention in it if they can bring a plus one. Make the RSVP date two to three weeks prior the events so that it could give you enough time to finalize the head count with your caterer.
Next, make sure the venue of the event is set up properly for your party. If your party has a certain theme, make sure it is properly disseminated through the invitation. To get the proper look, ask for advice from event planners as they already have ample experience regarding decorations. Aside from decoration, audio and lighting effects also contribute to the ambiance and the vibe of the party. The ambiance of the party can either set or kill the mood of your guests.
It is also important to go over the flow of your party. It is not necessary to think an activity down to every minute because it with seem very formal. Think of a few main activities wherein all your guests could enjoy, then give them time to mingle, chat, and have fun. Also, assembling an interesting/well-mixed/diverse crowd can make or break your party.
During the party proper, be mindful of your surroundings. Pay attention to the changes and respond if you see anything going wrong. But, don’t forget to have a good time yourself. One way you can make sure everything goes smoothly is to hire a palm beach catering service or a full service event planner to handle all the difficult tasks for you. This can help you throw a stress-free party and will give you more chance to interact with your guests, enjoy the music, and celebrate. It is your party after all.
