All About Entertainment: Creating a Party Program
Organising a party, whether it’s a kids’ gathering or a corporate soiree, follows a specific set of rules. These unwritten protocols will help you streamline your activities and do away with unnecessary stress. Other than the main logistical requirements, a fun program is another ingredient to a successful and memorable party.
This should be easy, especially if you already have a theme in mind. If you’re in charge of the program committee, here are some things you may want to put in your notes.
Consider the Venue
If you already have an activity in mind, it is important that you visit the venue first and see if that activity is possible. If it’s a cocktail party venue in Brisbane, you might want to limit your activities to conversations among guests, band performance, or anything subtle and sophisticated. You’re allowed to be flamboyant and extravagant if you’re having an event at a vast venue. More importantly, the set design will also depend on the size of the venue.
Specify the Activities
What you need to do here is make sure that all events will all fall within the bounds of a chosen theme. If you’re planning a corporate Christmas lunch, you may open the program with ice breakers and exchange of pleasantries.
Other than the lunch itself, you may include sharing of testimonials, singing of Christmas carols, and exchanging of gifts as part of the program. Towards the end of the program, you may want to distribute desserts. Whatever your activities are, they need to be consistent with the main theme.
Get a Host
A master of ceremonies is what you need if you want to liven up your event. More often than not, masters of ceremonies can also double as an event planner, so you may want to get one that does both.
Organising an event will not be stressful if you take note of these and do things ahead of schedule. Make your event more memorable by working with the right staff and suppliers.
