You know the holiday season is here when you start  receiving more than the usual  invitations for birthdays,weddings and  end of year parties and  maybe even invitations for  Christmas .

If you are hosting any of these celebrations and are planning on doing everything from scratch,you may wan to reduce your stress and anxiety levels by hiring a planner-an event planner.

Hiring an event planner might seem like a luxury but you may be surprised by how much they can reduce the anxiety that comes  with  event planning .

On this post we thought we might give you 5 great reasons why you might need an event planner this holiday season.

1.Saves you time

A good event planner is a pro at getting things done efficiently and on time.

They will save you the time spent on looking for vendors and suppliers because along with their experience they have with them a network of trusted suppliers and vendors that they have worked with,people they know can deliver on what you need for your event.

And just incase anything unexpected happens,then an event planner will always have plan A,B,C ad infinitum.

2.Saves you money

In my time planning events ,I have found out that there is always room for negotiations and what gives an event planner leeway as well as an edge is their ability  to negotiate,they can get you discounts on  rack rates and this is because of  the relationships they have developed over time with various suppliers and vendors.

It is easier to discuss discounts  with people you have had previous business dealing with than with total strangers,leverage on these relationships event planners have when thinking of holding an event.

3.You will get the right people doing the right job

Sometimes it is very difficult to gauge a vendors or suppliers ability to get the job done if you have no experience of having worked with them before.

An event planner due to their  diverse network as well as experience with vendors will point you in the right direction on whom you need on your team in order to pull of a successful event.

4.You will have a more successful event

Event planners thrive on details-the little details that everyone else overlooks is what planners get their adrenaline rushes from.Ensuring every little thing is in place and imagining all the possible things that could go wrong and ensuring contingency plans are in place is what makes for a successful event.

As the host of the event,you may not have all the time to worry about all the nitty gritty details of your event,let an event planner do the worrying  for you and ensure your event is successful.

5.You can enjoy the event

There is nothing like hosting a great event and you cannot enjoy it because you are busy ensuring that behind the scenes everything flows smoothly.You event forget to eat because you are busy handling all the event details by yourself you have no time to be a great host.

It would be great to have someone that thrives on adrenaline and the little details handle all the anxiety and stress for you,right?

HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY ORGANIZE YOUR CHILD’S BIRTHDAY PARTY

birthday-cake-

A time will come when as a parent you will have to organize a party for your child,in most instances  it will birthday parties  that will form the majority of these celebrations.

How you go about  organizing one will be an opportunity  to teach your child about social graces that they will carry with them through life.

In organizing for one, bear  in mind your budget and your child’s taste and definitely have some activity or entertainment in mind as children do get easily distracted.

1.Let your child help in providing the guest list .

Age range should be narrow as five year old’s and 10 year old’s  not get along very well.

2.Teach your child the importance of returning hospitality,get him or her to invite those who have invited them to parties.

3.The space you have available will determine the number of guests you can host.

4.Get an adult  helper if you will have more than 10 children attending the party.

5.If your child is inviting the whole class ensure no one is left out and explain to them the misery of being the odd one out not getting invited to the party.

6.Send out the party invites 2-3 weeks before the event to allow parents bringing their children to the party enough time to plan,include the reason for the event and the time when you expect it to start and end.

7.Let the children play before they eat.

8.Generally a party should not last more than 3 hours,the perfect time for having one is   between 3-6 pm.

9.If you are hiring an entertainer for the children let that be the last event of the day before children are picked by the parents,they will be less fussy .then

10.Let the children have fun.
