3 Do’s and Don’ts for a Successful Party

3 Do’s and Don’ts for a Successful Party

If you are planning an upcoming party or event, no doubt you’re excited about it. And, you should be – especially if you’ve put in the time and effort with your party planning. However, even the most well-planned parties can go terribly wrong.

In my years with The Fun Team, a company that offers party equipment hire on the Gold Coast, I’ve seen just about everything that can go wrong at a party, go wrong. A variety of circumstances can ruin a party, and the only way to ensure that your party goes to plan is by following certain list of ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’.

Do’s

1. Do make sure to confirm with your vendors

We party equipment hire vendors deal with multiple customers on a daily basis. Essentially, we are always busy, and we have a lot to remember. To ensure that everything goes as planned on your big day, make sure to confirm your booking well in advance and more importantly, your confirm your delivery time to ensure your party hire equipment is delivered well ahead of your party to give you plenty of time to set up. I recommend that you book the equipment at least a week before your event.

2. Do allow yourself enough time to set up the party equipment

Nothing is worse than having guests arrive when the party equipment hire is still being set up. Allow ample time for all party equipment to be set up – this will depend on the party equipment you’re hiring, and how much time is required for the set up. I recommend that you get everything set up with at latest 30 minutes to spare before your guests arrive.

3. Do account for the space required

Lastly, depending on what type of party equipment you’re hiring, make sure to account for the space required. This shouldn’t be a problem if you’re hosting an outdoor party. But, if you’re hiring inflatables or jumping castles, you’ll still need to consider where the equipment is placed and that there is sufficient space around it.

Don’ts

1. Don’t expect things to be automatically fun

Don’t expect that everyone will have a fun time if you haven’t provided any entertainment. You’ll need to provide enough entertainment options to make your party lively. Party equipment hire, such as our smoke machines and laser lights can help you add some fun elements to your party.

2. Don’t assume that you have enough food

Regardless of what type of party you are throwing, most guests look forward to the food more than anything. So, you need to make sure that there is enough food to last the entire party. The best way to ensure this is by taking the help of professional caterers or by hiring food machines. Food machines such as popcorn machines and snow cone machines are fun for all ages and will add another element of enjoyment to your party.

3. Don’t try to handle everything yourself

When it comes to throwing a successful party, you should have a great time as the host. This can only happen if you don’t try to take on everything yourself. Party hire specialists can help you host a wonderful party for your guests while you enjoy yourself.

Conclusion:

When it comes to throwing a successful party, there are certain ‘do’s’ and ‘don’ts’ that you need to consider. Do allow yourself enough time to set up party equipment, do make sure to confirm with your vendors and do account for the space required. Don’t expect things to be automatically fun, don’t think that you won’t run out of food, and finally, don’t try to handle everything yourself.
