Now that it is well into 2017, we are seeing an increase in unique and natural designs. Recent examples include wooden cutting boards to serve food, stem-less wine glasses and themed beer coolers. New trends are always emerging each year into must-have items when throwing a party. Depending on the trending culture, items like themed accessories, décor, games, food and other entertainment tend to rule the party. Based on convenience and purpose, these new items will have your party moving like no time.
Between hiring event staff, to renting a bar, here are the 5 new trends to adapt next time you host a party.
- Mobile Bars
Mobile Bars are essential in 2017. With more people leaning towards convenience and design, renting a portable bar creates the opportunity for a cocktail hour, anywhere you want. Whether it’s in the lobby, your dining room or outside on a beach, the best thing you can do is rent a mobile bar. Some companies, like Bartendo, offer custom design options and drink packages. The bar service provided includes cup rentals, temporary licenses, event staff, and beverages. Create your own custom design and allow us to place it on your portable bar. Better yet, request signature cocktails and specific bar decor to really get the vibe you want.
Similar to branding a product, you must adapt to customizing your party to a unique theme. Some occasions, like birthdays, weddings or anniversaries, will be easier to plan than other events. Either way, don’t be afraid to get your creative juices flowing and take advantage of holidays, such as Cinco de Mayo, to throw a successful party. You can also find custom wear businesses that can offer anything from drink wear, glasses, portable bars, cocktails and more. If you were looking to go the extra mile, themed giveaways would also be a great way to throw the perfect party. Order custom made mugs from companies like Think Drink Inc., or just buy tickets to the game. You can request your event staff to wear specific costumes or dress codes too.
- Eco-Friendly Planning
Not only is this a great and reliable marketing tool, but it also the right thing to do. With so many event-planning companies relying on eco-friendly business partners, it is the perfect time to learn how and apply environmentally healthy ways when hosting a party. Simple substitutions, such as e-invites and candles, are only a start. Click here for more tips. Creating an incentive – other than the original purpose of the event – will make your guests more inclined to show-up and enjoy themselves. It’s also about time we all pitch in to make the world a better place whichever way we can.
- Event Staff
Hire a server, bartender, or other event staff to help you with your entire event hosting needs. Whether it’s a private or corporate party, hiring event staff will create professionalism, organization and class. Adding this type of guest and bar service allows for a smoother, more successful party. It is becoming a popular trend as event planners realize the weight it really does take off your shoulders. On top of that, most event staff can offer experienced and quality results. At Bartendo, we hire for personality, as you can see in 8 Reasons Why You Should Work With Bartendo. This allows us to deliver a genuine and custom fit service that exceeds expectations.
- Buffet-ready Items
As you may already have noticed, buffet style parties have become a popular trend. This article, 3 Party Trends to Ditch in 2017, further explores this idea. Not only can you be creative when displaying your food and beverage items, but it will also be easier as you don’t have to worry about serving everyone individually. As mentioned above, this is also why you should rent a bartender and a portable bar to go along with it. Your guests can be served with ease, and you can focus on other aspects of your party. Less food will also go to waste as people can choose what and how much to eat versus the usual, pre-ordered and formal sit down party.
