Every job we do, we want our clients to enjoy. I mean really enjoy! A party is a reflection of your personality and taste. Every party is a celebration and every celebration should be a party!
When we work with mothers of Quinceañeras or Sweet Sixteen we often get their kids on board from the beginning so they have a clear vision of what is going to happen at their party and to enjoy every second of it.
Here are our Tips on how to have the Best Party Ever:
1. HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE AND ENJOY!
Ever heard of the Positive Thoughts Theory? This is so true! Positive thoughts attract positive things. You need to imagine yourself and your friends enjoying the party and having the time of your life; most likely, if you see it, it will happen that way!
If you have positive and energetic vibe at the party and feel relaxed and enjoying every second you will transmit this vibrant energy. It is contagious! Sure, you want your friends to enjoy it too, sure eyes will be on you when you perform your dance, but this is YOUR moment, so enjoy it no matter what!
2. DISCOVER YOUR PARTY THEME
If you recognize at an early stage, what your party theme is going to be, you will have a better chance of planning ahead of time. If you are not into themes, like princess or western, take into consideration that the inspiration idea for your party make come from the vibe you experienced at a favorite disco, your favorite color, your favorite food or even the dress you are planning to wear! Not every party has a theme but it should have an inspiration.
With the theme, make a list of your likes and dislikes, what did you see at a friend’s party that you totally loved? What would you not want at your party? Answer this questions and discuss them with your mom or event planner at your first consultation.
Some key points to consider: dress/wear, food preferences, serving style preference, color scheme preference…
Make sure your guests have a nice selection of food to choose from if you decide to go with a buffet style. One or two meats, chicken and/or fish, a vegetarian plate, two choices of salads and two sides. If you go with a sit down dinner and serving, carefully read the menu and ask the planner or venue to help you pick your choice. If dinner is at home and you are having a “friends only” type of party you may serve a buffet style table with finger foods.
Even if you choose a particular theme like Western Style, have other type of music to please all audiences. Two-five songs from the theme style will be sufficient and then you can go ahead and play everyone’s favorites. You can choose a mood song when people are coming in and taking their places and then a climax song for when the party is at its high!
If you are going to have a live-band, mariachis or DJ , check them out first. If a friend is going to perform this task, practice ahead of time.
5. YOUR PERFORMANCE/DANCE
The key to having a great performance is practice and again our number one choice: ENJOY!!! If you hire a professional, make sure you have a prior consultation to explain your likes or dislikes. If your friends are going to be involved in the dance, ask them ahead of time to make sure they don’t have prior engagements and they can make it to rehearsals on time. If one of them misses a step or makes a mistake on the big day and you notice, let it go, wash it off with a big smile or even interrupt your dance to give them a big hug. You don’t want to loose a friendship over a step, plus your reaction will last for a life time!
Check out this fun video of a bride and groom at their wedding. Her soon to be husband accidentally pronounces lawfully as “wawfully” and she cracks up so much that they have to take a break!
lol. See what I mean? Not that this will happen to you, but when accidents happen, weirdly enough it is your reaction the one that will be remembered!
6. IT IS ALL IN THE DETAILS.
To make a party real special, think about the details. Small details make moments memorable. Don’t be afraid to make something different and go for it: transform the ordinary into extraordinary! We do it all the time and love it when guests have that AWE moment when confronted with the unexpected at a party!
