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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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!
