We’ve all attended a party where the host cannot be found because they’re busy putting out fires the whole night! This isn’t fun for the guests or the host and it’s the reason most people hire event producers so that they can be hands off and actually enjoy being the host! If you’re planning an event and can’t afford to hire help, here’s my advice…
Q: What’s the best way to impress guests when entertaining at home? At a rented party venue?
A: When entertaining at home, impress your guests by being prepared before they arrive and allow yourself to also be a guest at your own party. Enjoy your friends and socialize rather than running around and working the entire party. At a venue, it should work the same as at home, allow yourself to be a guest by making smart event design choices that will allow you to be hands-off so that you can enjoy your family and friends.
