Special occasions are meant to be celebrated with friends and family, and this is why people love throwing parties with all their family and friends. But for many people, party planning is often stressful and time-consuming. Here are two ways to make your party planning a lot easier:
Hold it at Your Clubhouse
One of the main things to consider is the venue for the party. To save time and effort, you should hold it somewhere accessible to most of your guests. For example, residents of Lancaster City in Imus, Cavite can hold events at any of the Leighton Function Rooms in its Community Center. This will make it easier for family and neighbors to attend the event. If you’ll be inviting members of the community, the venue will be closer to home for everyone.
Another good reason why the village clubhouse is a great venue for parties is that it’s easier to bring in food and beverages if you hired a caterer. You can ask them to set up at the venue hours ahead, or you can bring in food you cooked for a potluck.
This kind of venue has room for various activities. You can hold games, dances, and performances. Lights and sounds can be set up as well. You just need to get in touch with various suppliers ahead of time.
Ask Guests to RSVP
All your preparations will depend on a headcount. Make sure to send invites ahead of time to have an estimate of the number of guests who will be there. If your venue allows for 250 people, send invites to about 200. There’s a great possibility that guests you have invited will bring one or two extra people.
The RSVP confirmation gives you a rough estimate, but be sure to give allowances for food, beverages, giveaways and seats. A good rule of thumb would be to set up two extra tables at the venue for last-minute guests.
Party planning eats up time and effort. If you can have it next door, or a few minutes away from where you and your guests live, it will be easier to set up and will end up costing less too.
