Top Tips For A Perfect Event

Does the thought of hosting a big event break you out in a rash? The theme, decorations, menu, coordinating multiple suppliers, RSVPs to manage, making sure everyone is catered for – that’s enough to send anyone into a downward spiral. Whether you’re hosting a corporate event, product launch, wedding or personal affair – allowing staff to do the hard work for you means you can spend quality time as a guest at your own event. We have 4 top tips on how you can make your event perfect without having to lift a finger. Read on for our advice.
 

1. Hire An Event Planner / Stylist

 
If you have a vision for your event – there’s nothing like having someone bring it to life for you and take care of every little detail. Throwing a fabulous party takes a huge amount of planning, liaising with an array of vendors to find the best in the market, and coordinating the colours and style with multiple suppliers. The event planners we list Australia wide are passionate and dedicated to making your event an unforgettable experience, completely customised for your event.
 
The Pumpkin Carriage Events in Sydney additionally specialise in dessert buffets that offer a smorgasbord of delicious desserts and cake, presented beautifully on luxe servingware, and styled with modern accessories. Their portfolio includes bridal showers, bridal kitchen tea, wedding ceremony and reception styling, milestone birthdays, baby showers.

2. Hire A Caterer

 
A caterer is our number one tip for any large scale event, after all, what everyone remembers is the food! Having someone take care of the food and drinks, allows you to ensure all dietary requirements are covered and that enough food has been prepared for your guests. Typically, if you have a certain theme, a caterer is able to come up with the menu and take the guess work out of you having to do it. Event planners also play a significant role when it comes to co-ordinating how the food will look and in designing the menu.
