Planning a party can be fun. It can also be stressful. From invitations to securing a space, you need to ensure everything goes to plan! With so much to consider, you’re at risk of forgetting the small details, and those little details are what can make or break your party. To save you having to think about them, here are a few ideas of little touches you could include!
As the catering for your party plays such a big part, we’re going to assume you’ve already got that bit covered. But, have you thought about what your guests will be eating with? When you were on the phone to the caterers, the chances are you didn’t think about cutlery! Even if your food is bite-sized, people will want something to eat it from! Who wants to head to the buffet table every time they take their next pick? To save on washing, opt for paper plates and plastic cutlery. This option also avoids breakages! Think, too, about the napkins you provide. Do you want to tie them in with your color scheme? You could go all out and get monogrammed napkins if you wanted to!
The decoration was probably one of the first things you considered. Did you think about the small flourishes, though? Simple things, like flowers around the room and confetti, can make a huge difference. You could even brighten the place with the addition of a few balloons! These touches won’t take long to complete, but they’ll make all the difference in adding a splash of glamor!
Everyone will be dancing the night away, so who needs seating? That may be true in an ideal world, but it’s rarely the way a party goes. Take a little time to consider how much seating you want to provide. Though guests will warm to the dance floor as the night gets going, you still need to provide an escape. Accept, too, that some of your guests won’t be fans of dancing! Make sure you’ve got enough chairs to go around. That’s not to say you need a chair for every guest. Just make sure you provide a large enough seating area for a few groups at any time. Think, too, about whether you want the chairs around the dance floor, or in their own half of the room.
By this stage, you will have already hired a DJ or found some other way to get music to your guests. Even so, you may not have thought about the music that will be played. Most DJs will ask for a playlist so that they can be sure to play the music you’re after. Make sure not to neglect this aspect! In many ways, it’s the music that will make your night. Make sure to pick some songs that are sure to go down well. You could even provide different playlists for certain times. The night is what the music makes it!
