’Tis the season to be jolly, after all.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year! But as joyous as Christmas is made out to be, it can also be the most stressful time of the year – especially for those in charge of planning parties for family and friends.
With all the preparations needed topped with the mad holiday rush, pulling off a great party can seem a bit daunting.
But fret not. Why do all the planning when you can divide and conquer?
If you have money to spare and want to throw a truly memorable holiday party at your home, hiring some pros can be worth it. What’s more, getting these people is also a good way to support small local businesses.
First thing’s first, hire a good coordinator. Get someone who can be on top of things, making sure everything’s in order, from setup to packup. You want to enjoy your party, not walk around worrying about your stuff. If you have limited space at home for your intimate gathering, your event coordinator can also book a spacious condo with great views through Siglo Suites.
Event stylist and caterer
Having a party theme is the easiest way to get your plans off to a good start. Once you’ve decided on one, call up a caterer and event stylist to make your party dreams come true. The food and styling will set the tone for the rest of your party so make sure you cover your basics. Do a food tasting with the caterer to make sure all the dishes will be served to your liking. Some caterers also include basic event styling in their package as an added bonus.
For big events, a good host can help warm up the crowd. You can prepare a short program or maybe come up with some games that the host can facilitate to break the ice.
Do you really want another mobile bar with watered down drinks at your party? Didn’t think so! Opt for a mixologist who can serve your family and friends quality cocktails for the adults and tasty drinks for the kiddos. Try finding one on websites like Raket.ph or go to your favorite bar and see if you can hire their best bartender!
Don’t ever underestimate the power of live music in making a party go full swing. If you’re in a limited space, an acoustic artist is your best bet. But if you have some room to play around with, try booking a rockeoke band to add more audience interaction during the program. If you’re thinking of a simpler setup where people can just socialize, up the cool factor with a DJ who can really pump up people to hit the dancefloor.
Photo booth suppliers
For parties in function rooms, having a photo booth guarantees your guests get a fun and memorable token from attending your party. Another option is to rent an Instagram photo printer, so your guests can just keep snapping pics and posting away. Don’t forget to think of a cool hashtag!
After one helluva party, one thing’s for sure: NO ONE is in the mood to clean up. So instead of worrying about it all, book professional cleaners who can get the job done better than you can. Check out companies like Prestige Housekeeping or Happy Helpers for more info.
Now that you have a dream team of party experts working to throw a snazzy holiday affair, you can finally have a chill Christmas you’ve been dying to have. Now sit back, relax, and enjoy the holidays!
