When a Party Is Too Big for Your House: Tips on Event Planning

People love entertaining. Most homes have big dining areas or outdoor spaces meant for entertaining extended family and guests. While it is lovely to welcome people into your home, there are occasions when doing all the work by yourself is simply too much.

Celebrating a momentous occasion at a private event space in Kansas City, for example, saves you time and effort in food preparation and after-party cleanup. There’s also the advantage of being able to invite hundreds of people — a limitation that most house parties cannot offer.

Do you plan to plan an event soon? Here are a few things to remember.

It Doesn’t Have to be a Massive Event

People think that only weddings deserve to be held at events spaces. However, more and more people are renting out private event spaces for other occasions too — birthdays, family reunions, engagement announcements and more.

Corporate events are also held at unique venues nowadays. Instead of just hotels and posh restaurants, they’re holding corporate events at art galleries, museums, farms, plantations and even gardens. The idea is to make the celebration unique and memorable for both the guests and the celebrant.

More importantly, events spaces often already include tables and chairs, which you can dress up to match the theme or occasion. Luckily as well, you could hire catering services, so you don’t have to worry about food preparation.

Personalize the Little Details

You could still be hands-on in the event planning as you would if the party were at your house. You could work with the events space personnel in planning the setup, decor, food, drinks, program schedule as well as the lights and music.

If the venue doesn’t cover all of that, you can bring in your own host or emcee for the night, decorators, and even hire a band or DJ if you want guests up and dancing the whole night.

A private events space offers you flexibility, convenience, and a “wow factor” that will leave a lasting impression on your guests and family. Best of all, you can enjoy the party planned without breaking a sweat on the actual day — or night!
