Just like magic, an event seems to come together in the eyes of a guest, but the true magicians are the various vendors who piece them together to create an enchanting ambiance. It truly takes a village to bring someone’s vision to life. Consider the following vendors for your next celebration to take your function to the next level.
If you want someone to organize your event, hiring an event planner is a great option. Event planners have experience in all aspects of creating a cohesive event, starting with the planning that goes into it. They are also a great source of connections. Your event planner will already have contacts for credible vendors to utilize.
A catering vendor ensures a quality hassle-free food service experience for everyone. Not only is the vendor qualified in gourmet cooking for large groups of people, but it elevates the event’s atmosphere. Often, caterers will create a menu based on food preferences or on the theme of the event. They provide an entire service that includes cooking, plating, serving, and more. Caterers will discreetly hover during the event to ensure all food handling needs are met.
A must-have at any function is entertainment. Entertainment can come in many forms. The best events have an established plan for entertainment for the duration of the event. This can be a speaker, a show, a dance, or even party games. The most important form of entertainment is a great DJ. Yes, the DJ brings the party to life with music but also works as a guide or host during the event.
An event would not be a functional space without party rentals. Vendors like Grimes Events & Party Tents are essential in creating a space that is efficient for guests to sit, dance, eat, relax, and overall enjoy the celebration. Party rentals can include party tents, tables, chairs, lighting, flooring, staging, portable restrooms, décor, and much more. Guests need tables and chairs to be seated, a DJ might need a stage to set up on, and dancing can be made intentional with a specialized dance floor. Event rentals create the foundation of the event in its entirety and everything else comes secondary to building out the space.
Now that the bones of the event are built out, vendors that specialize in décor are needed to transform the look and feel of the space. The décor team is responsible for bringing the event holders’ vision to life. They will establish colors, themes, lighting, florals, decorations, and any personal touches. The décor will be one of the first aspects to stand out at any event. Décor can be created by one vendor or a group of them where each vendor specializes in a niche area of decorating. For example, your event planner could handle linens and balloons while a florist would focus on creating flower arrangements to dress the space.
Did the event even happen if there are no photos? Having a photographer or videographer is especially important at any event. These functions take great efforts to create so capturing these memories to look back on is essential. It also helps the many vendors who participated, highlight their products and services.
If you are looking to create a well-rounded function, big or small, having a variation of these vendors is essential to getting the most out of your celebration. Investing in a caterer, party rentals, entertainment, event decorator, and a photographer will yield the best experience for everyone in attendance.
As a host, you can relax knowing all your event needs are met and your guests are accounted for. Get a head start on planning your next spring event! For any party rentals or event needs, contact Grimes Events & Party Tents today!
