Birthday and Anniversary Parties—Basics for Putting on the Perfect Party
There are few events more important and personal than birthdays and anniversaries. Celebrating the day of your birth or that of the one you love, or celebrating the longevity of your marriage, allows you to bring together all those that are important to you so that you can appreciate all that you have. Of course, there is more involved than just wanting to celebrate an event. You also need a plan and an event space. This is where we come in!
Check out the following tips for putting on the perfect party for a birthday or anniversary:
1. Decide who is responsible for hosting the party.
Birthdays and anniversary parties are unique kinds of events. Unlike corporate events or live music events, they are typically conducted by someone other than the person or people the event honors. In other words, you usually don’t need to be the one hosting your own birthday or anniversary party. It’s better to have a friend or relative host so the honoree can truly enjoy the event. However, if you are putting on your own party, please take advantage of our event planning services. We can take care of all the details and leave only the major decisions for you to handle.
2. Announce the date.
One great thing about birthdays and anniversaries is that they tend to be on set dates. You don’t have to deliberate too much about the date range you want. When you decide to host a party, pick the date and reserve your space, then announce it to all those who you hope will attend. Invitations are always a good idea. Just remember that with most events, even important ones like these, that there will generally be a gap between how many you invite and how many show up.
3. Reserve your event space as soon as possible.
Event spaces in Nashville tend to be quite popular, which means the longer you wait to reserve your space the more likely it is that the event space will be taken by someone else. If you know the space you want, like a historic Downtown Nashville location, be sure to reserve it as soon as you can. That way you have the location and space out of the way so you can focus on the rest of the planning.
4. Go local when you can.
Picking a local event company is almost always the way to go. When you work with a local event company, you get the kind of personalized service and attention to detail that you cannot find with just anybody. A local company will know the challenges that you might encounter trying to put on an event during a certain date range and will be able to help you overcome those challenges.
5. Take a tour of the event space.
You don’t have to rely on pictures online and descriptions to decide if an event space is right for you. A party venue is more likely to fit your needs if you take a personal tour. Given the special occasion, it only makes sense to make a personal visit to the location you are considering before you sign the paperwork. That way you can verify the space has the seating for your guests and the capabilities to put on the perfect party for you, your family and your friends.
