4 Creative Party Ideas

If you’re planning a get-together for some friends, you might be at a loss when it comes to thinking up something new. The old dinner party or cocktail hour just isn’t all that exciting anymore. You want something fresh and new and interesting. Then read on for some creative party ideas.

A Bus Tour

You might throw a unique party by hiring a charter bus in DC and taking a tour around the city. Prepare some fun facts ahead of time to entertain your guests, and serve some drinks and snacks along the way. You could even make a day of it, walk around various sites and grab some lunch. Be sure to capture the day in pictures, too. Your guests will enjoy this outing immensely.

A Sporting Event

Alternately, you might host a party at a sporting event for your favorite team. Consider renting box seats so that everyone can sit together. Purchase a few souvenirs and snacks (or allow your guests to do that for themselves), and then sit back and enjoy the game.

A History Party

If you and your friends are history buffs, then a history party might be just right for you. You could hire the community gathering space at your local history center for your party and set up a tour as part of the fun. Have your guests come in historical costumes. You may specify a time period or let them choose. Provide fun historical facts about the foods you serve, the games you play and the decorations you use, too.

A Trivia Night

Finally, treat your guests to a trivia night. Divide up into teams, and host a trivia contest. You’ll have to come up with questions and rules ahead of time, but if you keep things fairly simple, your guests will have a blast competing and learning. Don’t forget snacks (and some trivia about them).

Parties don’t have to be boring or blah any longer if you try out one or more of these creative options.

Tips for Planning Your Next Event

Use these tips to help you plan your next party or event.

Food and Drinks

Every successful event needs to have plenty of food and drinks for the guests to enjoy. Hire a reliable catering service Carson to handle the food so you don’t have to think about cooking or serving your guests. Decide if you want to set up a buffet-style menu or hire servers to wait tables. Ask about any special dietary options you may need to cater to like a vegetarian option or gluten-free dish.

Budget

Establish a budget for how much money you can spend on the venue, entertainment, decorations, food, drinks, and staff. Depending on the size of the event, you may even want to factor in marketing costs. Keep all receipts from party expenses for your records. Regularly check back with your budget to ensure you are not overspending as you get closer to your event.

Entertainment

Decide what type of entertainment is appropriate for your event. If you are hosting a business event you may need to hire professional musicians to perform live music. In this case, you may also consider renting a dance floor for guests to get up and enjoy the music. If your event is less formal, you might want fun, lively entertainment in the form of a comedian, artist, or performer. For children’s parties, you can hire a clown, balloon artist, or face painting station to entertain kids and provide fun favors to bring home. For more interactive entertainment, consider hiring a live performer, clown, or artist. 

Invitations

As you get closer to the date of your event, get ready to send out themed invitations for guests to RSVP. This will help you get a more accurate headcount for how many people will be there so you can better prepare seating and food. Let guests know what kind of attire is expected and provide details about your event such as the location and time.

Whether you are hosting a corporate gathering or children’s party, these tips can help you better prepare for your next event.

Party Planning Tips for Success

Hosting a celebration can be a lot of work. Between planning the logistics of the party space, the itinerary for the event and the menu for food and drinks, you may feel like there is too much to do in too little time.

Below you will find a list of key things to consider when you begin planning your event.

The Party Space

Choosing the right party space is the first step to a successful event. You cannot host 100 people in a small conference room and, on the flip-side, you don’t want an entire restaurant for a small party of 20 leaving your event feeling empty. Be sure to speak with professionals at the space you plan to use to discuss capacity suggestions to help ensure you choose a place that will most comfortably fit the entire group.

The Itinerary

Depending on your celebration, you may have more or fewer events that you need to fit into your event’s schedule. Common times you may need to schedule are meal times and speeches or awards. For informal events, consider scheduling the meal to begin first and then begin the speeches or awards shortly thereafter. Using this schedule will allow for more time to socialize before/after the meal.

The Menu

If your party space does not include food and beverage options, you will need to find alternative catering Newburyport MA for your event. The most important thing to consider when choosing a caterer is whether you need them to simply drop off the food or whether you need catering staff to remain at the party to assist in serving and cleaning up as well.

Finally, the most important tip for planning a celebration is to start planning early. The earlier you begin planning, the more likely you will get your first choice of venues and caterers, which will help keep the party-planning stress.
