Lighthouse Point Yacht Club offers you the following tips to assist in creating the perfect summer event.
Tips for Planning Your Summer Event
Create a Theme
Summer parties generally come with a theme. If you are choosing a theme, what will it be? A game night? Cocktail party? Pool party? The ideas of what themes to choose from are endless. If you prefer to not have a theme, consider a color palette. Colors palettes can be easily added to florals, linens, napkins, and more. Once you have your theme, you can determine what location would best fit it. Deciding on a location can be fun and exciting. When you choose to have your party at Lighthouse Point Yacht Club, the possibilities are endless.
The most vital part when it comes to party planning is getting organized. When you have a billion thoughts on your mind, the best way to get them all out is by writing them out. Creating a list to assist in the planning process can ensure that you do not leave any important aspects out. A to-do list can highlight every task that needs to be done. Once you complete the tasks, you can successfully cross them out and move onto the next. There is nothing more satisfying than making your way down a to-do list.
The costs of an event play a massive role in the planning process. If you have a budget, it is imperative to stick to it. Going over a budget shouldn’t lead to financial distress. Creating a cost sheet can assist in ensuring you closely keep track of your expenses and stay within your budget.
Lastly, on top of your to-do list, consider creating a shopping list. Similar to a to-do list, a shopping list can help you avoid forgetting an item or two that is essential.
Plan the Menu
Food is a major part of an event. During summer, consider adjusting the food menu according to season. For example, fruit can be a good appetizer to help keep guests cool. Incorporate berries, fresh herbs, and other veggies into the dishes. For the drinks, keep it as casual as possible. A self-serve bar can allow guests to choose what they please. Sangrias and margaritas are summertime must haves.
Once you have a majority of your to-do and shopping list crossed off, it is easier to identify items that were forgotten. Prepping ahead of time can avoid potential slip-ups or keep mishaps from occurring. Once the pre-party prep is done at least a few days before the big event, the rest can be done the day of.
