Viewing Party with a Twist

Friday, May 30th, 2014

What exactly is a viewing party? Well, it just another way of calling a television night party but let us give a little twist to it. Viewing party is one of the most common and doable forms of party. It does not really require a lot of preparations. If you have an audiovisual room, well and good if none, still okay. As long as you have a TV set, DVD player and a selection of movies then you are good to go with your viewing party.

How do you prepare for it? Well, you do not have to adorn the entire place just like in any other parties. The goal of your viewing party is simply to watch any kind of shows and movies on TV. Now, if you are a little exhausted and not in the mood to prepare for the foods, you can always opt to get the service of a food caterer. You can dial up your favorite food caterer a three days before the scheduled viewing party to plan for the foods that you want to be served to the attendees. They do not have to be really complicated dishes, simple ones will do. Even the simple dishes can be made extra special by a great party caterer like the ones at www.mycaterer.com.au.

Sing and Dance Party

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Unlike the karaoke night party, a sing and dance party is a combo of singing and dancing, of course. You can set up your place in a way that those who would love to sing can just go in a designated area and those who would love to move up their bodies and sway can go to another area.

The Bride’s Maids Night

Monday, May 26th, 2014

Yes you are so right; the bride’s maids’ night is not one of those common pre-wedding parties just like engagement, stag and bridal shower events. It depends on the discretion of the bride. A bride’s maids night is mostly needed if the bride’s maids are not from the same clique- one bride’s maid might be the bride’s high school BFF, the other one a college best friend and another one a close girl pal at work.

This kind of a little party will be a fun way for the ladies to establish rapport with each other and eventually form a strong bond, which is highly needed for the wedding preparations to run smoothly. Imagine the wedding preparation and the wedding day itself if your maids are not close enough to carry out their errands and tasks? Awkward!

Oops! No, no, this is definitely not synonymous with a bachelorette party because obviously the one hosting this little event is the bride. The hen’s party, on the other hand, is the traditional pre-wedding occasion to celebrate the last days of the bride-to-be as a single woman and it is planned and thrown by the ladies of the wedding entourage including the female members of the bride and groom’s respective families.

To make the party a little less stressful on your part, instead of preparing the foods for the girls, get the food caterer you booked for your wedding. If you still did not come up with a decision of which party caterer to choose, www.myweddingcaterer.com.au can help you with your problem. The dishes that your food caterer shall prepare for the said party need not be complicated. Simple yet mouthwatering dishes would suffice.

Post-Wedding Soiree

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

Bridal showers and stag parties are the usual events taking place days before the wedding. If you feel like you didn’t get enough of your wedding reception party with your family and friends, host a post-wedding soiree the night after. It does not have to be big and extravagant since a soiree is only a small party in your private place.

Here are the things that should never be absent in your post-wedding soiree:

wedding-caterer

• Musical performance: Since soiree often involves musical performance, you can ask a family member or a close friend who is a musician to render a performance. If you do not have anybody in your family or cliques who can perform, you can always hire somebody. Perhaps a violinist, saxophonist or pianist- as long as he or she knows how to play a particular musical instrument.

Food Catering: Of course! A party, no matter how small, will not be a party without foods and drinks. Call up your trusted food caterer and talk about the dishes that are most suited for the event. Party caterers that have been in the business for a long time are already adept in making dish combinations perfect for the occasion. You can actually find a lot of great food caterers in www.mycaterer.com.au. The site too, includes friendly tips for your upcoming event. Don’t forget that having the best food caterer is one of the keys to a successful party.

• Warm and Classy centerpieces: Opt for simple centerpieces that will create warmth and give a classier look to the place. You can even ask the help of your food caterer with this since they are the ones in-charge of setting up the tables and chairs.

wedding reception 2

• Wedding gown: Gone are the days when the only color for a wedding dress is only white. Nowadays, you can wear a wedding gown of your favorite color- pink, yellow, blue, black, red, name it! Or you can put everything together if you like

• Wedding cake: It does not have to be in white, filled with tiny flowers and topped with a bride and groom figurine. You can design your cake based on the theme of your wedding. For instance, if your wedding theme is ‘Travel’, then your cake may come in the form a globe or travelling books.

• Venue adornments. Modern day weddings need not be overly romantic. Sticking to the earlier example of a wedding theme which is ‘travel’, aside from roses and all things cheesy, have some travel items as one of your decorations. If you were able to travel as a couple, you can use your souvenirs and if they’re ain’t enough, you can produce replicas to be all-over the venue.

Lastly, your wedding doesn’t only have to be unique in terms of the wedding gown, cake, venue, but the foods as well! Get the most excellent food caterer in Australia and talk about a unique combination of foods and beverages that will fit your theme. You can read some useful tips and get a list of truly great party caterers from www.myweddingcaterer.com.au. The food caterers the site recommends are those that specialize in doing wedding party catering.
