Why Hire a Party Planner?
Imagine your dream event. Envision it seamlessly coming together, everything prepared and organized, looking even better than you expected. Picture yourself having the time to mingle with guests during your party, take in the live music, and cut loose on the dance floor, all without the worry that you’re needed elsewhere. Well, you can let your inspiration run free, because creating an unforgettable event with all of your ideas coming to life is absolutely possible, and you don’t have to do it alone.
Let’s get real for a moment. hosting a great party is a lot of work, from booking the appropriate venue to deciding on entertainment, knowing how much food to provide and ensuring the safety of your guests. Big or small, putting on an exceptional event takes a ton of planning. So, where do you begin? You might be tempted go to the Internet to track down the many elements that will make up your event, but be warned! The never-ending lists of DJs, magicians, balloon artists, caterers, dance teams, fire eaters, petting zoos, decorators and florists might just make your head spin–Just try typing “DJ for hire LA” into Google, and you’ll see what I mean. You might find what you’re looking for, but believe me, equally as mind-boggling are the never-ending, mixed, and often fabricated reviews that may or may not be all that reliable. That is, many services might look great on paper (or screen…), but may not deliver a quality product or service. Bottom line: an experienced party planner can take the guesswork out of finding reputable vendors. We know because, after over 25 years throwing all kinds of parties–from backyard gatherings to major corporate events–Party Planners Los Angeles has sought out and narrowed down the highest quality, most dependable companies available, and only call upon the most tried and trusted of them when creating an event. But, the work doesn’t end at finding the best caterer or live band. Oh no, that’s just the tip of the iceberg!
The hours preceding an event are some of the most nerve-racking. Even when much of the pain is eased by good planning, there are still about a million things to do. I can name just a few off the top of my head: cleaning the party space; decorating inside and out; inspecting the for safety hazards; making sure all vendors arrive in time and set up in the correct areas; getting the lighting just right; making sure there is enough cutlery; running to the market to buy last minute items; setting tables; checking everything, double checking, triple checking; and, finally, telling you how relaxed you look, because all you had to worry about were what shoes to wear. Phew!
The next and most important step is, of course, the party itself. This is when the real dance begins, when all of that fastidious organization and careful preparation really pay off. A series of events are set into motion and timing is everything. Keeping the many gears on an event grinding and free from glitches is a job in and of itself, and trying to be the hostess with the mostest while keeping all of those plates spinning can be overwhelming. I mean, didn’t you want to sample the gourmet catering and sip champagne along with your guests without having to restock the chocolate fountain or cue the samba dancer’s entrance? It’s an event planner’s job to ensure smooth sailing, so you don’t have to manage the minutia, and can just sit back and enjoy your party. Ahhh.
And, when the party is over and your guests are waving from their cars, bellies full and accolades on their lips, you can sneak one last macaroon, put your feet up, and reflect on a fabulous event while everything is quickly tidied up for you. Now that’s the party of my dreams! What’s yours?
