TIS THE SEASON!
When planning your function this festive season, plan smarter, not harder
It’s that fantastic time of year, when our minds wander from the work we are supposed to be doing and rest instead on the more enjoyable things in life.
Already office Christmas parties are starting to occur, as well as family get togethers ahead of the busy Christmas season.
One thing to keep in mind is just how busy the season can get, and that includes for all the local businesses you might be planning to call for your Christmas needs.
So for functions and events coming up in your calendar, use these helpful tips to take the stress out.
It’s a good idea to do this as early as possible, for the simple reason that people’s calendars really do start to fill up.
And if you are slow on sending out invites you might find yourself with a rather small guest list of positive RSVPS.
Remember to create a digital event such as Facebook or email so your guests can access the details online and link it to their calendar on their phone. Don’t however neglect the good old paper invite. You may have guests who don’t use their devices or connect with their social circles online, and you can imagine the devastation at missing an event simply because it was confined to an online guest list.
Make these as soon as possible also, as many local businesses will be juggling numerous bookings.
If you are having your event catered, make sure to check dietary requirements with guests and provide your caterer with a clear, concise list well ahead of the event to minimise stress on the day.
Remember, the easier you can make it for the people doing the service, the more pleasant the event will be for you and your guests.
