When organising a party, it is crucial that you choose a venue that is easily accessible. By choosing a good venue, you will greatly decrease the amount of time and effort it takes you to dress it up. Whether you are planning a Bar Mitzvah, Christmas party, wedding, corporate event there are plenty of interesting venues to choose from. Websites, such as www.venues.org.uk, provide an extensive list of venues in your area that can make it easy to narrow down your options.

If you have guests arriving from out of town, it is a good idea to ensure that the venue is easy to find. In addition, consider parking access and whether or not there are accommodations nearby where your guests can stay.

WELCOME GUESTS WITH A DRINK 

Living Human Table

To show your guests how much you appreciate them coming to your event, greet them with a drink. This gives you a chance to welcome them, set a positive vibe, and get your guests in the mood to party. A popular entertainment option to do this is by hiring one of Chosen Events Living Human Table, the tables will entertain in the character of your choice, create an exciting buzz and meet and greet your guests on arrival with champagne, or a drink of your choice.

It also works for practical reasons. After all, it will prevent long queues from forming at the bar, which only results in irritated and frustrated guests.

When booking your venue, it is important to get a confirmation of the number of bar staff that will be included. You will need to be certain there is an adequate number of bar staff to ensure a fast turnaround of drinks at the bar. Otherwise, your guests will spend most of their night standing around waiting for a drink.

It’s a good idea to book a venue where the bar is in the same room as your party. If not, your dance floor will rarely be more than half full. If the bar is in an entirely different room, people will end up congregating there to talk.

A CREATIVE WAY TO BREAK THE ICE

Caricaturist / Cartoonist for events

To encourage mingling, start the party off with some exciting party entertainment. This is a particularly good time to break the ice in those awkward moments when you have only just met other guests and family for the first time. Chosen Events can supply you with something completely unexpected, such as a magicianfortune tellercelebrity lookalikes, or a caricaturist. Guests will be drawn together to discuss what is going on, which will get them interacting with each other.

If you choose a caricaturists, it also creates the opportunity to send your guests home with a truly unique party favour.

HIRE A PARTY BAND TO ENTERTAIN YOUR GUESTS

Party & Function Live Band

Whether you are planning a Private PartyWeddingPromBat Mitzvah, or Corporate Event, you can’t go wrong by hiring a live band. While it’s true that most guests are content with a party DJ, anyone who has ever attended a party with a live band will tell you that it made the night so much better. In fact, it is not unusual for guests or even the person the party is honouring to admit that a live band is what made the night truly unforgettable.

After all, live party bands will get your guests excited and pumped up. While not everyone likes to dance, even the most ardent anti dancer won’t be able to stop themselves when a great live band is performing classic and modern party songs.

Trust us, booking a live band will make your entire party.

HAVE FUN 
HAVE FUN! This is your party, so you need to be right in the middle of your guests having just as much fun as they are. Don’t spend the night running around trying to organise everything. If you are having a good time, everybody else will too. If you are having a miserable, stressful night, expect that vibe to rub off on your guests.

Have the night of your life!!

Just wanted to send you a note to say that Rick was just such a rock star on our stand this week at Black Hat Europe.  He is just such a super chap and totally wonderful to work with.  He just rocks up and gets on with things, we had some issues with our cabling and he sorted that out and then just keeps rolling all day.  He chats away with all the ‘customers’ and is a joy to work with.  All our team at Carbon Black, just love him.
