Music and Atmosphere

Good music gives a party atmosphere and can be a great way to help keep a party moving. This may be provided by hiring a band, DJ, karaoke machine, juke box or by simply spinning your own CD Collection.


If your party is being held in a non-smoking household, make room for smokers. This can be done by creating a smoking destination such as a room with a fan blowing, or an outside area. If you don’t have a place for smokers, ensure you let guests know in advance that it will be a non-smoking avenue.


Atmosphere can be created by using creative lighting. This magical experience can be created simply by replacing some light bulbs with coloured lamps.


If you will be letting Guests Park on the lawn or in the backyard, let them know in advance in your invitation. You should also warn your neighbours in advance that you will be holding a party and that guests will be parking on the street.

Why not try asking your neighbours about parking options also?


Consider the age of the guests that will be attending your event, and what seating will be required. Some parties may require removing the chairs from the party area, to create a bigger space for people to move around and mingle or dance.


Sadly, nowadays security is a part of planning a party. You will need to consider door security, invitation check lists, perimeter checks and local police integration.

Toilet Paper

Imagine getting stuck in the toilet with no toilet paper! Couldn’t imagine anything worse, and imagine if it was one of your guests! Ensure you have a stock of toilet paper for your event day, you will have a lot more guests in the bathroom that you are used to.


Scents can be a great way to create a relaxed atmosphere.

Garbage Bins

Theming can be endless to match your venue, and guests and of course your taste, budget and choices.
