Just to be on the safe side, in our example of 200 people, I would guarantee the restaurant 185. If you’re pre selling tickets, which I recommend, you can always adjust your estimate upwards with the restaurant a day or two ahead of time if needed. Ask the facility about their requirements in regard to a change in the guarantee.
Let us consider first thing first. There must be a place to conduct the music festival. The best people who can give you advice on this matter are the realtors. If you expect a large crowd to attend the festival hire a stadium. It provides all the space you require to build a stage, food and drinks outlets, parking space and many other facilities. The selection of a stadium must be justified by the crowd you expect to attend the festival because the rent you have to pay for a stadium is high. If you prefer an indoor location, try to hire a theatre. Indoor locations are better in winter and for smaller events.
And it works on ‘big’ stuff too. I’ve been guiding people through the process on issues like weight loss, money stress, cold calling angst, and personal resilience. There’s an awful lot of shifting and groovy stuff happening.
At Home Spa Party Skip the expensive spa trip! Invite your friends over for a relaxing, luxurious evening. Set the mood by playing soothing music and transform different parts of your home into a spa atmosphere. Have your friends bring different products, so that you can create home facials. Set up a pedicure/manicure area. If your friends are willing to split the costs, consider hiring a couple massage therapists to come to your home. Provide herbal teas and light snacks at the event.
Pies are usually sliced and served as an after dinner dessert. You can place it on a plate together with another treat such as a scoop of ice cream or different fruit slices. All together, this can make an attractive dessert that you can offer to your guests.
A good idea is to write a list of all of the things you will need to source from a party hire company, including things like catering equipment, marquee hire and anything else. Make sure the one you decide on can meet all of your requirements. It is better to get everything from one source than getting things from a few different companies.
To make your event really stand out don’t overlook the importance of the entertainment. Once again keep in mind of who your guests are and organise entertainers that you know they will appreciate. Will the staff picnic include children? If so book the jumping castle and the pony rides. At a black tie dinner will there be speeches and a presentation or will there be time for dancing? Would your guests be happy with a DJ or would they appreciate a live band? Modern music or a classic big band? Think about what will really stand out in your guests minds and make your evening memorable.
The person who would rather put their head in a bag full of old peanut butter and rotten apples at the very thought of having to make such a call – she was gone. Poof! Did not exist anymore.
