We have so many reasons to be sad about in life. But, one thing that refrains us from being forever moody is the reasons we have for celebrations. Birthdays, anniversaries and more are the little bits of opportunities we get to call all our friends and family together and have a good time.
Where to host?
Most people assume a party held outside will be better due to the venue change. However, it could be costing you a lot to hire a whole new place. If there is no space in your house at all, there is no other option than to choose an external venue, true. But if you can make space within your place itself, with a good catering Sydney service, you can make the best out of the party. It may even be a chance to have the house fully cleaned and a small renovation like applying a coat of paint to the walls take place. It is also an opportunity for your extended family or long-lost friends to visit your house.
Reducing costs further
Most of us are thinking about the costs once the event has happened. When the final amounts are charged to the cards or when the bills are at the door, we panic. Best thing is to have a budget before the event takes place. If you are using the house, venue cost can be written off. That way, you can consider actually going for a fancy invitation and even some door gifts. But don’t waste money on unnecessary things; plan carefully, invite a justifiable number of guests and act accordingly. For example, ask your guests to RSVP early, that way, if you invited hundred people, you will see only eighty five have said they are coming for sure. On the day you will receive some more excuses and end up with almost seventy people, at most. Have this in mind when you order food and buy door gifts.
Décor for the house
One more advantage of using your own house is the ease with which you can use the space for decorations. Some venues won’t let you put nails in the walls to hang stuff or change their table-chair setup. But at your own home, you can manage to do what needs to be done and hire some chairs from outside if need be. If you have a garden, you can easily hang stuff like lanterns and have a garden party. Choose a suitable theme for the outdoor family gathering with food arranged by Italian catering Sydney for example to give that authentic feel. It is now easier than ever to have a party at the confines of your own home with various hacks and DIY tricks for décor and invitations. Try it once and you will see the difference.
