"There's a party on the hill, can you come? Bring your own cup and saucer and your own cream bun"Anyone remember that nursery rhyme or am I showing my age!!
I have been planning a corporate get together this week for some of the female members of staff at my company. Team building they call it. We call it cocktails and food in the city. With more cocktails.
The thing is, when organizing a party, be it a children's party or a corporate event, it is essential to either hold it at an interesting place, have some sort of theme, or an interesting gimmick.
When it comes to children's parties, I think of the parties that my mum used to have for me as a child. Pin the tail on the donkey, musical statutes and jelly and ice cream. Very retro now. These days, it has become essential to have some sort of theme.
My friend Wendy holds the most amazing parties for her son. Running her her Etsy store WendysPrintableParty as a sideline and having a young son gives her endless inspiration to hold the most amazing parties. Science parties, dinosaur parties, music hero parties and superheroes. Each party is a must attend event for all the children.
When it comes to organizing an adult birthday party or a hen night, it is still important to get the details right. The right venue or theme can really make the night. For the more active why not organise a paint ball party based around a weekend away, or a cocktail making experience for those that love a drink and a dance.
When arranging a corporate party event, if you are organising for more than 50 people, make use of the resources available to you and hire an event management company. There are so many interesting places and spectacles that you can organise events that will be a real talking point and make the experience. Hiring a professional in these cases when organising for 50 plus people is essential.
For Northern events for a more sporty kind of event, why nor organise an Office Olympiad event or or something more cultural in the capital, a tour of the London Dungeons with an interactive aspect. Or a free bar haha, whatever works for your company.
The point is to make whatever you are organising interesting, fun and a talking point. With that, you are guaranteed an amazing time.
