Nothing beats sunshine, fresh air, and the wind blowing through your hair. But the last thing you want for your outdoor party is to have your guests swimming in their own sweat or peeling from sunburn the following week. When you are planning that big outdoor party in advanced, it can be difficult to predict what the weather is going to be like. If it is not the possible scorching heat, it may be the pouring rain, either way, you do not want to be scurrying everybody inside to hide from the elements. Avoid all of that drama with these five essentials for an incredible outdoor party.
Ditch the tent, it’s marquee time.
For a long time, the words “outdoor party” and “modern” were mutually exclusive. Nobody would ever think beyond flip flops and a barbecue. But there are some movers and shakers that are truly changing the face of outdoor parties, the celebration experts from Modern Party Hire are certainly doing their part in bringing classy and sleek to the backyard. Say bye to the old boring tent, if you really want to have your guests talking about what a great party it was, have a look at one of their crossover or hexadome marquees.
Make it a party to remember for everyone and be sure to grab a photo booth with all the extra dress up fixings. Let your guests pose and shoot away without having to constantly pull out their phones. Getting a professional photographer makes it difficult to ensure everyone gets a shot from the party as well so having your own photo booth means instant memories for everyone to take home with them.
Dance the night away.
Whether you are doing the Macarena or busting out a bit of Gangnum Style, avoid the broken heels and messy shoes and be sure to get yourself a dance floor. If you’d like to go one step further, consider getting an LED video dance floor that will project your name, photographs, lyrics, and even your own video. There won’t be any need to head out to the clubs afterward with a quality dance floor. Definitely a must.
I’ll be back. The Kegerator.
Nothing is more frustrating than running out of ice for your drinks, or having to run into the refrigerator every half hour to stock up on drinks. Pick up a portable kegerator unit that will serve your favourite drinks straight from the keg. Station these at various locations around your party to make sure nobody’s cup is ever empty.
Keep the buzz happening and give you guests a welcome surprise with some live entertainment. Invite your favourite local band or musician to rock the party away and bring all the neighbours over. Want to really get everybody talking? Wow your guests with some fire dancers and fire eaters, you may even want to bring in a magic show. You definitely want to make sure the night does not drag on with boring conversations. Some live entertainment will surely keep any boredom from getting anywhere near your outdoor party.
