Party Planner Guide:

Party Planning Technique: Best Location

Having a migraine on deciding where to hold the party? For do-it-yourself party planners it’s probably a nightmare having to decide between a sweeping castle and the backyard, especially if you’re on a budget. How about a few tips then?

Outdoor or indoor?

This is probably the first thing to be decided on, most children’s parties are best done outdoors so that the kids can meander around and play in the grass. If it’s a cocktail party an outdoor setting would be great as well, of course with different décor.

Be different.

Parties have been hosted inside houses, on lawns, in restaurants, in function rooms all around the world and it’s really starting to get boring.

Think about a party that is inside a zoo (yes, this is an adult party) or an aquarium, or a museum or an art gallery, how about in an old abandoned warehouse?

Basically, there are no limits to a party location, an old abandoned warehouse will look just as well as a hefty living room with just a little imagination.

Watch out for the cost.

Conventional party locations usually have higher prices than those not so used ones. The owner knows that the host will have a budget and he’ll probably want as much of that budget as he can weasel out.

Unless there’s an infinite budget, find a not so well known location that is still accommodating and interesting.

Ask for help.

Ask friends and family for places that they know. You’ll be surprised at how many places people know that you don’t.

If it’s for a child’s birthday party, you can ask the parents of slightly older children; they’ve been around the block and would probably be more than happy to help out.

Don’t forget the number of guests.

Find a location that can accommodate all the guests. If you have a wedding party, can the location accommodate the family and friends, how about the choir?

You may have the grandest and the rarest location but if the guests can’t fit, no matter how good the decoration, your party will flop.

Think Sporty

Sports clubs like professional football clubs, old golf clubs, billiard associations, golf clubs have game rooms or trophy rooms that they can have you rent out.

If you’re a member or know a member, you can ask to have a party among the faded pictures and the lost trophies.

Ice Breaker Games - a Perfect Way to Get Your Party Started!

Ice Breaker Games can help you get your party off to the best of starts, especially, if all or some of your guests have never met one another.

Ever arrived at the party, only to have your hostess show you in and "waltz" out of the room to greet other guests or to finish up other things, leaving you in a room with other people you've never met?

Remember those awkward glances and the silence?

Of course, you're a sociable person and you found something to say, but you made a mental note for yourself next time you're throwing a party to think of something to help your guests avoid feeling this uncomfortable.

The easiest way to achieve that (unless you can be in two or three places at the same time) is to find a couple of fun icebreakers for your guests to play, while you're putting some finishing touches on your party.

Those who've arrived early (or simply on time) can start an icebreaker game that won't take too long and, as new guests arrive, they can join a second or a third round of the game.

You, on the other hand, will have the prefect choice of joining the game with your guests or finishing up some things in the kitchen.

These party icebreakers are a great way to get the party started and provide your guests with a comfortable and fun way of getting acquainted.

Editor’s notes:

I hope that you and your loved ones are having a sensational time, and enjoying hosting parties and celebrations at every possible chance you get.

Now for some of my terribly sophisticated humour – lol!

I was having trouble with my computer, so I called the computer guy over to my desk. He clicked a couple buttons and solved the problem.

As he was walking away, I called after him, "So, what was wrong?" He replied, "It was an ID Ten T Error."

A puzzled expression ran over my face. "An ID Ten T Error, what's that, in case I need to fix it again?"

He gave me a grin. "Haven't you ever heard of an ID Ten T Error before?" "No", I replied.

"Write it down", he said, "and I think you'll figure it out."
