Top 5 Tips for Holiday Event Planning

Whether you are planning a small intimate event or a large corporate event, EventByMe is here to help make your planning easy! The holiday season is rapidly approaching; but don’t worry there is still time to plan that perfect event. Here are some tips to help ensure that your event is a success!

Create a checklist!
In order to help you stay on track, on time and on budget with your event, you will need to create a checklist. At EventByMe our motto is Planning Made Easy! With that said, our preloaded templates will do the work for you and generate customizable checklists depending on the event type; which are available to you through our platform.

Location, location, location
When choosing a venue to host your event, there are several factors that need to be taken into consideration. You need to ensure that there is enough space to host your guests comfortably so they have room to move comfortably and are not jammed into a tight space. Ensure that there is plenty of parking available for guests that are driving and consider choosing a venue accessible by transit for those that do not drive. What kind of vibe do you want to portray at your event? The venue that you choose should be in alignment with your vision. Most importantly, you want to work with a venue that can provide you with testimonials from past clients. If you are working with an Event Planner, they will look after all of these details for you. Remember to take a look at the Venues we have listed on!

Food Stations
No one wants to be stuck at a table all night with people they may or may not like. Consider alternate options, such as food stations, which allow guests to mingle and move around freely. Or if you really want to make your event memorable and on trend consider hiring some food trucks!

There are so many options to make the event space look festive, whether you are working on a shoestring budget or where expense is not a concern. A nice table setting is a simple way to make food look elegant and inviting. When it comes to centrepieces for the tables, don’t just limit yourself to flowers; there are so many other options. Pinterest is a great resource for inspiration! Make sure you follow our Pinterest Boards as we will be sharing lots of ideas there.

Create Memories and Have Fun!
Set up a special area in the room that is reserved for photos. If you’ve got the budget you could hire a professional photographer to take snap shots of your guests and print them off on the spot so they can take home as your gift to them. Add an extra element of fun and have some boas, hats, and other accessories so they can get silly and have fun with the photos. Don’t have the budget for a photographer? No problem – take a selfie!
