There are nearly endless reasons to get together with friends, family, and peers and host an event.
Annual Business Meetings
Post Game Victory Celebrations
Long Holiday Weekends
However, event hosting itself isn’t always as easy and straightforward as it might seem, especially if you’re new to planning.
When planning a party, you need to pay attention to a wide range of details to really pull off the party with style; including décor, entertainment, and (most importantly) the best pizza in Minneapolis. The right combination of these factors can leave you with an event that satisfies every guest on your list. Depending on the goal, planning an event can be a bit of work. However, you can make sure you throw a memorable bash by following a few key tips.
Give Yourself Enough Time
Sometimes, party opportunities crop up suddenly and without warning. That’s ok – you can still have an amazing get-together. For more structured gatherings, give yourself plenty of time to hammer out the details during the planning stage.
• Catering needs and how far ahead of time you’ll need to order
• Key speakers’ schedules
• Other existing holidays or events that might overlap
Giving yourself a month minimum to plan a more official get-together, allowing you to get all of your ducks in a row so you can ensure everything runs smoothly when the big day arrives.
Make a Guest List
It’s really easy to pull up every contact in your phone and send out a message to invite the entire lot, but that’s a really good way to underestimate the number of people you’ll have in attendance. Having an accurate count on how many guests to expect is a must because it directly impacts other planning factors, like seating counts and catering orders. Write up your guest list to get an idea on how many people you might be expecting at your get-together so you can plan all the details accordingly. Asking for an RSVP is never a bad idea either, even if too many people do respond with a hard “maybe.”
Being organized helps make everything less stressful. Party and event planning involves so many different details; it can get challenging to keep track of everything you have done and have yet to do. Making a checklist of all the necessary steps makes planning easier because it gives you a sort of step-by-step guide to follow. Jot up your list on a piece of paper and slap it on your fridge for easy access.
The food at an event plays a crucial part. Buffet tables loaded down with event goodies bring everyone together and allow them to chat over a plate of warm food. While there are dozens upon dozens of catering options to choose from, pizza is always a wise choice. The average American eats a whopping 23 pounds of pizza annually – so why not have a portion of that be at your event? Visit our pizza restaurant in South Minneapolis to talk about how many guests you’ll serve, discuss any potential food allergies or dietary needs your guests might have whether they be gluten-free or vegetarian options, and get all the right ingredients to top off your event in the most delicious way.
