5 Tips for Planning a Birthday Party

Your birthday comes once a year so making the most of it is essential. Whether you’re in the prime of your teen years or celebrating your 50th, it’s time to start prepping and make this birthday bigger and better than any other. However, if you’re unsure of where to start, we’ve created these top 5 tips to give you that all important helping hand.

1) Choose a stand-out venue

No one wants a venue that doesn’t deliver; you want something that’s going to do your party justice and provide the perfect environment for memories to be made. By having a look at a few options, you’ll be able to gauge what’s on offer and how you could utilise the space. For extra space, it may be worth considering a party marquee too.  Don’t forget to take into consideration the number of guests attending, room for food and entertainment and the venue’s licences.

2) Consider catering

When it comes to choosing your food, being able to please everyone should be one of your main priorities. However, providing something which everyone will enjoy can be quite challenging and costly, meaning you may end up stressed and slightly overwhelmed. If you’re struggling to come up with ideas, why not ask an array of guests what their favourite party foods are; you’ll then have a general idea of what to order or make. If you’re not that confident in the kitchen, or simply won’t have the spare time, catering is an excellent way to avoid any stress and hassle.

3) Entertainment is key

To make your party the biggest and best event of the year, booking some quality entertainment is a great idea. At Nailcote Hall, you will find the most engaging and exciting array of entertainers, from tribute acts all the way through to live bands. Booking entertainment for your party means that you and your guests can enjoy some of your favourite songs whilst dancing the night away - there really is no better way to celebrate.

4) Get snap happy

After the party is over and done with, you’ll want to be able to look back on the night and reminisce. Hiring a photographer or videographer allows you to have your party documented, all without the hassle and inconvenience of carrying your own camera around. Certain venues will offer their own services for this but, to make sure you’re getting the results you want, do a bit of research and look into their portfolio of past work.

5) Accommodation for your guests

When it comes to the end of the night and your party-goers are all danced out, will they be heading home or to a hotel? Some venues, including Nailcote, provide a hotel as well as a party venue, meaning your guests won’t have to travel far to rest their heads after a night of fun and laughter.
