Once you have answered these questions you will have a good idea of the services you will require. A great Caterer will offer a complete service to save your running around organizing things separately. Having everything organised by one company will help your event run smoothly and cut down your workload.
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.
Now select a short-list of Caterers according to the needs you identified in your preparation. For example you may have identified that your venue doesn’t have a kitchen, or that your guests have particular dietary concerns or that you need to hire equipment.
2) Bring in the experts! If you are having a wine themed reception, ask your venues sommelier or bring in a wine expert to travel to each table to describe the wine available and answer questions. If you are having a casino themed party, hire an expert to give instruction and advice on how to play. If you are having a garden party, bring in a florist or botanist to speak about the natural decorations surrounding the party.
When you do decide to engage a party hire, whether it is for something as tame as the bouncy castle or as racy as the bucking penis, there are a few things you should look for. Of course you want to make sure that your party hire is dependable. Nothing puts a damper on a party quicker than party games and rides that don’t show up! You also want to make sure that your provider keeps the inflatables and rides clean and in good repair. If your party is outdoors it’s always wise to have a “plan B” but if you don’t have an indoor area where you can move the party, you want to be sure to find out about rescheduling or rain check policies.
Musical Shows Visit the North Carolina Theatre and see Broadway shows like Hairspray and Evita. All performances will be held in Raleigh Memorial Auditorium at the Progress Energy Center for the Performing Arts in downtown Raleigh. Legally Blonde and Steel Magnolias will be featured starting in 2012 and are two shows you definitely do not want to miss!
Leave all of the music to a professional. Once again, it isn’t fun having to DJ a party yourself because then you don’t get to enjoy the party. Hire a professional DJ to mix together sweet beats and tunes so that you and your friends can dance the night away on a dance floor.
