Essential Summer Party Planning Tips

summer party planning austin Having a backyard party in Austin is the perfect way to cool down during the summer. There are lots of ways to make your party unique and unforgettable. Invite your friends, rent some party equipment, and get ready to have some fun. Read on for party planning tips for your summer backyard get together.

Stay Cool

If you are hosting a party in the summer, keeping your guests cool is a must. For a tasty and refreshing treat fill ice cube trays with water, as well as raspberries or slices of lemon and limes. Once frozen, drop the cubes into a glass of water or lemonade for a delicious burst of flavor. Another chilly option is to fill decorative bins, or even just coolers, with plenty of ice and assorted bottled beverages for people to choose from.

Summer Decorations

Keep the atmosphere of your summer party light and cool with decorations that blow in the breeze. Soft colors and flowing materials will look great around your backyard. Try hanging a paper flag banner in a central location for a fun visual. You can also decorate with an abundance of summer flowers. Get a festive, glamorous feel when the sun goes down by lining a pathway or two with white tea light candles. If you don’t want to buy decorations, you can always rent things like assorted linens from a party supply rental store.

Outdoor Entertainment

Hook up a projector, which are always available to rent, to a laptop and play movies in your backyard. Hang up a white sheet or use an empty wall as a movie screen. Your guests will love gathering around the screen for a good laugh. For good old-fashioned fun, pick out a colorful piñata and hang it up for your friends to take a crack at. You may be surprised how much fun you can have with games from back in the day!

Questions to Ask Your Catering Company

questions to ask your caterer austinThe food is one of the most significant parts of any wedding reception. When hiring a catering company for your wedding it is a good idea to ask any and all questions you may have. You are investing money, as well as serving a lot of people, so it is important that you know what to expect. Keep reading for some questions you will want to ask your caterer.

Ask About the Food

You likely want the food at your reception to be memorable and well prepared. Find out what kind of food your caterer specializes in, and ask to see menu options. Will the caterer prepare a special dish, such as a family recipe, that you provide? Can your caterer account for different guests’ dietary needs, such as vegetarian, kosher, or gluten free? Also ask whether he or she will bake the wedding cake or if you need to find a bakery.

Questions About Business

Get to know the catering company and how it operates. Establish who the main contact will be. Ask about price range and how many people they are willing to serve. It can never hurt to ask the catering company for references from previous clients. Caterers should offer you a food tasting prior to hiring, so be sure to ask if they don’t. Additionally, find out where the caterer intends to prepare the food.

Other Provided Services

Catering companies will often provide more than just food. The extra services can make your wedding day much easier. You will want to know if the catering company has a wait staff, or if you will have to arrange that through the venue. Will the catering company provide tables and chairs? Do you need to rent catering supplies? Figure out how much of a role your caterer will play during the reception.

At American Party Rental in Austin, we have all the supplies you need to make your wedding day go smoothly. Call us at (512) 236-5773 or visit us online and browse our catalog for catering supply rentals and more.

Dealing with Divorced Parents At Your Wedding

The vast majority of the clients I’ve worked with over the years have had divorced parents on one side of the aisle. The divorced couples who got along made the wedding day effortless. The ones who didn’t get along made it a bit challenging. There were a few times I had to instruct a mom or dad to behave or leave.

I’ve always felt that the wedding couple is who sets the tone for the behavior. Don’t be afraid to set some rules about how the divorced parents should conduct themselves, and make sure to be gracious and recognize all the parents involved. Try to set aside any differences you have with your stepparent or step-siblings. It will make your wedding day far less stressful.
