Most important aspects of hosting a great party

Whether you are celebrating a particularly important age milestone, an anniversary or even just throwing a party as an excuse to let your hair down and reconnect with distant friends and family, organizing such a large gathering that’s not only fun in the moment but can also be looked back on with joy and a sense of nostalgia in the future. It’s a really carefully balanced mixture of visually stunning and memorable decorations and setting mixed with a great audio scape that is what a lot of people remember the most and indeed music can be one of the strongest memory triggers. All down to the additional entertainment and activities that you have going on for when people get bored of the dancing and music.

It’s a lot of work and requires a fair bit of consideration and planning, and often when planning large events like this, you may be surprised to find out that it’s the small, rather than the large, details that really stand out and can make the difference between an average and mediocre gathering and an epic party that you talk about for years to come. So let’s look at three of the most important considerations that you need to give when planning it.

Hire services

Now nobody realistically expects you to have all of the necessary equipment and furniture just conveniently tucked away in your garage somewhere, and normally for the majority of the furniture considerations at least will most likely be handled by the venue you plan on using. However for things like audio equipment and lighting options you may find that. What your venue can provide is either limited or just not suitable for the kind of effect that you are aiming for and this is to be expected. However if you really want to push the boat out it will be down to you to source hire services for this additional equipment to use on the day. There are several things you should keep in mind when booking.

For starters, you are going to have to give the company a good deal of notice (as much as possible ideally but a minimum of two weeks is a good rule)to make sure that if they have the equipment that you are looking for that they can then reserve it for the day you need it. Secondly you will have to do itineraries and a rundown of exactly what you do and don’t have and pass that along to the company as well. Also make sure that you take a look at all of the different options carefully as you may find that you can potentially get more bang for your buck by choosing specific models of speaker for example.

Now when it comes to the venue itself, the most important things to think about are whether the space has the physical capacity to handle whatever kind of party you are planning to host and the amount of guests that you are planning on inviting. For the purposes of estimation you should assume that if push comes to shove that all of the guests arrive to enjoy the party and work with that number as opposed to making concessions on who you think “may” turn up.

Also you will need to consider whether the venue you have chosen is really suitable in both facilities and in general tone for your party. After all it’s no use hiring a grandiose and well like ballroom if you are going for an underground hip-hop vibe as the style of the music will inevitably clash with the surroundings. Also bear in mind that when you book the venue you again have to give plenty of notice to what date you will require the hall for. This is to give to venue time to reserve you in place for that time and day so that your booking doesn’t get mixed up and end up clashing with another booking.


At the end of the day, you will want to put as much of the hard work into it before the actual night of the event as possible in order to allow you the time you need on the day to let you hair down and enjoy the fruits of your labor, so nip it in the bud and get everything organized ASAP.
