When to Use a Party Rental Company
Throwing a party comes naturally to many people. They just have a natural exuberance that makes them exceptional hosts, they have great taste in decor that appeals to every ones taste and they just know how to have a great time. That being said, self catering is a very stressful job, it requires discipline and exceptional organization skills. In an event where the guest list starts surpassing triple digits, it is recommended that you use a party rental service. Top notch agencies can provide impeccable service and artistic decor to make an event truly memorable. There are many different types of events one comes across in their lifetime, and there are different party rental agencies that suit the needs of every type. When an event becomes overwhelming, it is not a matter of finances, hiring a professional is just something that you have to do. Here are some of the events that you might want a hire professionals for.
Every single bride wants her wedding day to be perfect. Being near perfect is a job description for most wedding planners. With long guest lists, special needs, lighting, table cloth colours, limo service and the wedding band, there are just too many variables to keep a track off by yourself. An event rental agency does this sort of work for a living; it is their job to keep a track of everything for you. This does not even include the large number of plates, glasses, tables and chairs you will need to acquire for the event. When hiring a party rental service for a wedding, be sure of the type of wedding you plan on having. An outdoor wedding is a different kind of event compared to an indoor wedding. Outdoor weddings require the use of tents, which vary in style. Depending on the type of weather you might encounter, you will need fans, portable heaters and air conditioners. If you encounter a sudden downpour, things as inconspicuous as lighting become a potentially deadly health hazard. Pick a company that specializes in outdoor weddings, rain or shine, hale or firestorm. They will be ready to deal with anything.
Baby showers on the other hand are a little different. The success of a party rental service in the wedding scene may not translate over to baby showers. The decorations, menu and colour theme of most weddings are very traditional. A baby shower is all about the mother to be and pregnant women have an altered sense of smell, taste and colour schematics. Long story short, professionals that cater to baby showers need a wider range of decorative artistry. They need a broader idea, when it comes to aspects like the menu and colour scheme. A professional will know how to please any new mother to be and design a party that will be especially uplifting.
For catering events you do need a bit of help. For starters, if it is a large event you will need certified food handlers, warming trays and other kitchen appliances that are designed to handle large volumes of perishables. If it is just a small gathering of a dozen people, it is just better to do it yourself.
Concerts and Carnivals
This is another niche in the party rental business and it is very different from weddings and catering events. First off, the type of equipment you need is completely different. You need experienced stage builders, concession equipment, crisp audio systems and immiscible surroundings. Travelling carnivals usually cater to themselves; however, if a township wants to through an event for the locals, it is always better to hire a reputable company. These events require a different level of management and organization when compared to weddings. The stage for example, depending on the type of concert, the stage has to be altered. A free flowing rock band will require a large, solid, structurally sound platform. A DJ on the other hand, will need less space, so a more compact design is preferable, allowing more room for the audience. For events like these, you need to hire a company that has a very knowledgeable grasp of audio equipment and a very thorough understanding of decibels (db), watts, make and model. The sound at a rock concert can be as high as 130 db; there are speakers in existence with subwoofers that can produce 10,000 watts. You would not want that kind of equipment at an auction. Another major aspect to consider at such events is safety. At a carnival, you need certified technicians to step up attractions and rides. A good company has a list of their own certified contacts. An auction may put up items of serious value, antique jewellery, valuable artwork, items of great historical significance.
Corporate events and Meetings
Corporate events are an important component for a multitude of businesses, organizations and companies all throughout the year. This could range everywhere from employee appreciation nights, to staff events, to events that will lead to multimillion dollar deals. This is not like a wedding or a concert; it has to be fun while still being business like. Here, the trick is all about generating the right ambiance. It is about finding the right balance between enjoyment and professionalism. In a lot of cases, the successes of such events are imperative. A professional will know what lighting to use. If you hire an expert, even the podium and chairs will be tailored for maximum efficiency.
Residential includes mostly in house birthday parties, garage sales and barbecues. Even if it is a large event, the target audience tends to be more laid back and the event itself is normally smaller when compared to other bashes on the list. This is something you might want to tackle yourself, unless you are swamped with work, tired and quite simply, lack the functionality to arrange a party. Hiring an expert for a birthday is always a good idea. The service has numerous props and equipment that appeases both adults and children. Kid’s parties can become a bit of a whirlwind and it is always nice to have a bit of extra help. Themed events can also be included in this category, since most of them tend to be of a personal nature. Experts can provide the right props to really make the event come alive. In the last half a decade or so, themed parties have gained great popularity and in some cases notoriety.
There are many different types of events that have to be organized throughout the course of the year and there are many specialized experts in each field. Whether you are throwing an extravagant wedding or a posh VIP only grand opening, an expert gives you that freedom, that piece of mind.
