Everyone loves a good party but from finding the venue to deciding on the food and entertainment, throwing a party can be a daunting task. Not sure how to plan a party in Singapore? Here’s a step-by-step guide on how to make your party event the next talk of the town.
First and foremost, you’ll need to set a budget for your party. The budget includes how much you’d like to pay for the following:
While the more may seem the merrier, be realistic on how many people you can accommodate. A smaller guest list makes the event intimate and allows more bonding time between the guests.
Whether it's a big celebration or small gathering with friends, a party theme makes the whole event more cohesive and memorable. Planning for the party also becomes easier as it narrows down the specific food, decorations, and games to look out for.
Party themes to consider
Next, a party venue is needed to host your event. A good venue must be convenient and spacious enough to fit all the guests you wish to invite.
Some locations in Singapore suitable for parties include one’s house, clubhouses in condominiums, and community centres.
Food plays a crucial part of every successful party. Below are some party food inspirations that are bound to satisfy any hungry guests and keep everyone happy.
Main meal: Either find a food caterer that provides buffet meals or buy a variety of dishes to lay them out. Some dishes to consider include pizzas, sushi platters, tacos and burritos as well as dim sum.
Snacks: Choose easy-to-eat finger foods such as nuggets, french fries, muah chee, and hot dogs. To make your party more fun, consider engaging live food stall vendors who can serve popcorn, churros, candy floss, and ice cream on-the-spot.
What’s a party without party games? These games can keep everyone entertained and have a great time.
