So You’re Having a Party: How to Plan a Successful Party


Throwing a party is always fun and exciting. It’s not all about hanging streamers from the ceilings and covering tables with delicate dolly cloths and glitter however, being able to create the perfect atmosphere to captivate your guests is important, so is the entertainment. So before you jump head long into your party planning, before you run to your ipods to create a rocking party playlist; here are a couple of things to consider.

How Many People Are Coming?

Knowing your numbers is a sure fire way for you to make sure there’s plenty for everybody. The last thing you want is to book an awesome venue only to find it’s not big enough to fit all of your guests in comfortably.

You also don’t want to under or over prepare for your party if there’s only  a smattering of people attending. Is a huge town hall really necessary for ten people? Is the upstairs of your local pub really big enough for your entire family, friends and friends of friends?

At the end of the day, with your out-of-this-world entertainment and a night of dancing, you’re going to want to make sure everybody has a seat.

What Entertainment Do You Want?

It’s one thing putting all of your friends and family in one room, it’s another thing keeping them entertained. Whether you’re looking to have a live band play or dancers perform, think about how you’re going to present your entertainment.

Keeping everything at floor level may work in some venues but, more likely than not, a stage will be needed to place your entertainment at easy eye level for everybody to see. We specialise in supplying stages, lighting and even bands to help you make your evening amazing!

What Decorations Do You Want?

We know it’s the people that matter, but if you really want to help your guests get into the party mood, your decorations will speak volumes.

Whether you chose to adorn your venue in robust balloons, flowing streamers, glittering confetti or magical lighting, your colour schemes will help to set your party heads and tails above the rest!
