Are you hosting a big party at your home? Or maybe you are throwing a corporate event? You might even be planning someone’s dream wedding shower. Well, no matter the occasion, you need to ensure you have all of the supplies necessary to keep your guests happy and satisfied.
A key component in planning a successful event is organization. Let’s say you are renting a tent. Well, then you might as well rent from an event rental company that can provide your chairs, tables, and everything else, as well. This keeps things simple at a time where it is easy to feel stressed out and behind schedule.
All in all, from creating invites to figuring out food and decor to organizing fun activities and more, throwing an event takes a lot of work! Keep these tips in mind to ensure you are well stocked on any and all of the party supplies you will need.
Accommodating a Large Group
First things first, make sure you have adequate seating available. No matter the event, big or small, formal or not, chairs and tables are a must. Guests need to have seating options, so that they are not forced to stand around for the entire event and, tables give them the space they need for writing things down and eating their lunch or dinner.
Providing beverages is another big thing to account for. If you are planning to serve tea or coffee, figure on around 80% of your guests taking one or the other.
Serving cocktails? A dream wedding or work party is known for having drinks available, so plan ahead to ensure you do not run out of anything. Figure on each person drinking around two to three glasses of whatever it is you are providing.
All in all, it is better to have more than enough supplies than to come up short. For example, a group of 15 people should be supplied with around 200 napkins to use. It may seem excessive, but you would be surprised at how quickly guests can go through supplies.
Other Tips and Guidelines
Struggling to find a good venue? If your yard is spacious enough, consider using that if it is a more informal gathering like a shower or graduation party. A tent rental will offer shade, so everyone can be comfortable, and you can get tables and chairs, as well, so people have a place to eat.
If it is a theme or color scheme you cannot decide on, consider this trick. Pick three colors that go well together and use them as your guide. As long as any supplies you purchase falls within that color scheme, you will be good to go, and your event will end up looking great.
Need to create an elegant aesthetic in a drab-looking venue? Rent linens. Linen options come in the form of napkins, runners, tablecloths, chair covers, and more, and they class up any high-class event or dream wedding in a hurry.
All in all, it is important to work with a rental company you can trust, so you aren’t left scrambling at the end of the day. Allied Party Rentals is here for you, and we will not let you down. Depend on us for it all.
