Do you love parties? Of course you do. Who doesn't?
But do you love organizing parties?


The idea sounds so simple: putting the cogs in motion to provide a great time for friends, family, or business compatriots. The reality, however, is often much different.

Enjoying a party requires little more than a good attitude and good company, but making it to that point is significantly more challenging than it sounds. Even with a solid concept in mind, getting from idea to execution can require significant time and money to accomplish, taking away from the more important things on your agenda.

If you've never organized a major event before, you may be in for a surprise. Even small metro areas often have countless options for catering, entertainment, and venues, creating a logistical nightmare before you so much as put pen to paper.

Instead of committing the next months of your life to organizing the perfect party from the ground up, there's a better way.

With Yowsi, your upcoming events will practically organise themselves!

Birthday Party

Organising Parties & Events 101

A great party has a few basic requirements. Or, at least, they sound basic; getting these elements right requires more research, analysis, time, and money than you may have bargained for.

Budget

Before you can do anything else, you need to know exactly what you have available to spend. Your budget will likely vary greatly based on the kind of event you have on the horizon; a birthday party for a child, for example, will likely require significantly fewer resources than a wedding or corporate holiday mixer. You budget should reflect allocations to expenses like food, entertainment, party space, and decor, and will depend entirely on how much money you have on hand.

Theme

Parties come in countless forms and formats, from rustic country weddings to sophisticated business soirees. The theme you have in mind will dictate many different features, from the venue to the menu, and will have a big effect on how your budget is spent. After all, you can't host a ten year old's birthday party like a black tie gala with passed hors d'oeuvres, and your upscale wedding isn't the right time for a bowling alley bash.

Guests

How many people you are inviting and who they are can completely drive the mood of an entire event. 200 adults at a wedding will need far more food than 10 toddlers at a birthday party and will likely have different expectations you will need to accommodate. Guest count impacts everything from the available menu options to the size of your venue, so be sure you have a guest list in stone before moving forward.

Venue

Before you can choose things like a menu or special entertainment, you will need to decide where you're going to hold your party. This choice will be extremely important; a great party concept can be easily ruined by an improper setting.

Not all venues will be right for all occasions, and some may have restrictions you didn't see coming, especially in the wedding space. For example, some venues have a cap on how many people can be in attendance, while others require use of specific on-site or partner vendors, like caterers or bartenders. Look for venues that fit your cost requirements, theme ideas, guest list, and decor must-haves.

Entertainment

At a party, most guests anticipate entertainment. What kind of entertainment you can provide will depend on your budget, theme, and guest list, but can range from a DJ at a wedding to a costumed cartoon character at a children's event. From photo booths and balloon artists to dancers and magicians, you can take party entertainment in many different ways.

Diet and Menu

At most parties, food and drink take up a sizable portion of the budget. This is especially true for adult-centered events, like weddings, at which guests expect to be fed and watered in exchange for their presence. A birthday cake and some pizza may be enough for a child's party, but won't cut it at the corporate Christmas gathering. Alcohol may also play a role at weddings, retirement parties, adult birthdays, or other mature events. Bar packages are often priced per head, adding an additional expense to include in your budget. Consider dietary restrictions as well; many adults are vegetarians, vegans, or gluten-free.

Overwhelmed yet? If so, you're not alone: even the most basic expectations can leave experienced event coordinators feeling frazzled.

Luckily, Yowsi is here.
