Host a Dazzling Cocktail Party with these Professional Tips

Apart from private cocktail party, companies can also host cocktail parties for their employees when they achieve a milestone. Cocktail parties are not regular parties and have to be planned and organized differently. Seek professional help and hire a party planning company for organizing this fashionable party. Here are a few things you will need to work on with the event planner company to host a glittery and impressive cocktail party:

  1. Select a suitable time for a cocktail party. Avoid planning during mealtimes. Evening parties are best to impress your clients and party with your employees with the perfect party planning.
  2. Although cocktail parties do not serve any food items, but serving different types of hors d’oeuvres is a good idea. Determine the number of guests and plan on each guest eating one or two type of hors d’oeuvres. Prepare accordingly.
  3. Work with your party planner and select the best type of glasses. It’s a cocktail party and you just cannot make a mistake in selecting the wrong glass style. Work on the number of guests and ask your planner for extra glasses, just in case you need them.
  4. Decide on the drinks you’d want in your party. It’s an official event, so you would not want to keep a lot of alcoholic beverages. But, regardless of the type of beverages you select, make sure you have enough supplies on hand. Stock all beverages that are a part of your party to save yourself from the embarrassment of running out of drinks.
  5. Mixing drinks is a popular aspect of cocktail parties. Leave this job to the person who does it best – the bartender! Talk to your party planning company about hiring a bartender for the evening. Your guests can enjoy the best drinks with a professional bartender.
  6. Make sure you have enough ice on the day of your party. Ask your party planner to place tubs, one part filled with water and three parts with ice and a little salt. Salt helps in melting ice at lower temperature, so you will have ice for a longer time period at the party!
