The Business of Parties
Who doesn’t love a good party? The dancing. The food. The people. The memories. Then, of course the warm, fuzzy joy of celebrating with friends and family. Parties and celebrations have been part of our society for ages—from celebrating milestones like coming-of-age ceremonies: debuts, quinceaneras, bar and bat mitzvahs to life events like birthdays, graduations, and weddings. Celebrating moments is just ingrained in our DNA!
However, parties just don’t magically come together. If you’ve ever planned a party or any gathering, even if it’s an intimate one, you know how much work comes goes into it. From selecting a theme, to choosing what food to serve, to decorations, to the music you’re playing, it takes a lot of planning and preparation to pull off a celebration. Of course, not all parties are created equal. Planning a party for five-year old’s birthday party is vastly different from planning for a wedding with a guest list of 250.
And, usually with the assistance of friends and some inspiration from Pintrest (and other similar sources), you’ll be able to pull it off and create the party of your dreams. But when you’re stuck with a huge guest list for a huge event with limited time and resources, it’s always a great idea to call in the experts. Lucky for us, we can recommend some local experts you can call on!
