Planning a Party, New York-Style
NYC is ridden with parties galore. What makes yours special?
Your guests are the stars of the evening
Party planners get carried away with decorations, music, lighting, party favors, sponsors, liquor…everything needed to make a party fun. But let’s not forget that a party isn’t a party without PEOPLE. Pay attention to your guests and ask yourself “what would I want from this party”? Remember, your guests are the starts of the evening, not your hired entertainment.
Calm down; everything is under control
People have no idea how ridiculously hard it is to host an event and manage hundreds of people at once. But if you are going to wear the stress on your face and have your eyes dart around like a doberman in a bird house, no one is going to talk to you. Just remember that people are here to ENJOY themselves. The host sets the tone for the room. If you are maniac, everyone else will turn crazy and paranoid. Be a swan above water and a paddling duck underneath.
