When it comes to throwing an unforgettable party, there are few things you must have.
Whether it is a birthday party, an anniversary or even a wedding; here are our must haves for making a party unforgettable.
You know we couldn’t start a post about an unforgettable party without sharing what we think MAKES the party. A delicious drink in one hand not only gives you and your guests a refreshing, delicious treat to enjoy - but it adds a little something special to the party. Especially when you are offering more than just water or the standard Jack and Coke. Having cocktails at your event truly elevates the experience and creates a new level of hospitality and fun for yourself and your guests.
2. Delicious Treats
Paired perfectly with cocktails, a delicious treat turns a cocktail hour into a party. In addition to that, you don’t have to worry about guests getting hungry, or sipping too many delicious cocktails on an empty stomach when there isn’t anything available to snack on. Adversely, when there are snacks that are not truly delicious, it can put a real damper on the party.
After you have selected the perfect cocktail bar, (we know one if you’re in the market ;) ) and ordered the right snacks you need to make sure the atmosphere is just right. Start by choosing the venue that best suits your vision. After that, ensure all the decor looks exactly how you would like it - and be sure the lighting accentuates that. Finally, check to be sure the flow will work for the party - and that there is enough room for each activity planned and that the temperature in the space is as comfortable as it can be for everyone.
You can’t have a party without music. Whether it is slow bluegrass or busting a move to cha-cha slide, make sure you have a playlist picked out. There is nothing worse than a party where someone put their iPhone on shuffle, especially when their grandma calls three times.
Especially when you are throwing a party in Nashville, I mean it isn’t called the music city for no reason! Nashville houses some of the most talented musicians around. Even our worst musicians beat the best in other cities. ;)
And for the finishing touch, make sure you are having fun. You can stress endlessly about throwing an unforgettable party, but if you aren’t having a good time and enjoying your hard work - your festive shindig will lose a ton of its flair and fun! Plus, if you throw an unforgettable party, it is a guarantee that your friends will want more - so you have to enjoy it! To make sure this fun is captured, think about hiring a photo booth or placing a few disposable cameras all over the venue for fun photos! If it is a very special event to remember, hire a photographer - like musicians Nashville has some of the most amazing photographers in the world.
Now that you know how to make your next event unforgettable, grab a cocktail - a pen and paper and get to planning! We can’t wait to see what you come up with and hope we get to be apart of all the fun at one of your events soon!
