Holidays are sure hits among adults and kids, and Easter isn’t an exception. The warm weather gives almost everyone an excuse to host a party that brings together friends and family. Though hosting Easter parties is a tradition, it doesn’t mean that guests will automatically line up to attend your event. You should include interesting activities to make them not want to miss the event. One such activity is to ask them to wear their Easter bunny costumes.
This year’s Easter may be different. However, although most people spend time indoors, you can still throw a memorable get-together Easter party.
Here are some tips to help you have a great Easter party this year:
- Have An Objective
Creating an objective for a relaxed, family-friendly event may seem unnecessary. However, having defined goals will give you and your team something to work on. Your objective doesn’t have to be complicated. It can be as simple as raising money for charity, strengthening your community, or showing local kids a good time.
You may be planning to gauge the success of your event by the attendance. However, hitting your attendance goal doesn’t mean your party is successful. Your party will only be successful if you achieve your objectives. This can be gauged in terms of raised funds, newsletter sign-ups, and awareness created.
- Outline A Budget
Regardless of whether you’re planning to host a lavish festival or a scrappy egg hunt, you need a clear budget. That’s the only way you’ll avoid getting into unexpected costs.
Most people don’t love budgeting for parties. But having a budget template that’s easy to understand and editable can help make this process enjoyable. Having a budget will prevent you from overspending and help you determine whether you should hire a balloon artist or have volunteers. If you’re lucky enough to save some money when buying items, you can indulge.
As a rule of thumb, you should update the budget every week and include the smallest of expenses. Prices of things like food, decorations, and flyers can add up pretty fast. So it’s best to buy non-perishable items as soon as possible to prevent you from overspending.
- Select A Proper Venue
With the health protocols in place, you may have to select a larger room to host your Easter party. But before doing this, you should review what you know about your audience. If most of them have cars, you should consider parking and accessibility. If they’re using public transport, select a venue that’s next to a public transit system. The accessibility of your venue can greatly impact the party’s attendance. You should ensure that it fits within the attendees’ preferences.
Also, if you’re expecting parents with young kids, the venue needs to be stroller accessible. It should also be safe, clean, and with proper recycling and trash bins. That’s because most parties with drinks, foods, and games tend to have a lot of waste.
- Promote The Event
If you want your party to stand out and draw many people, you need to promote it. There are many ways you can do this. You can post flyers around your neighbourhood and location and ask local businesses to post them for you on their bulletin boards or windows.
A more convenient way is to market it over email. Most people are tech-savvy and receive communication through this channel. However, for your email marketing to be successful, you’ll require an email list. Alternatively, you can also promote it through social media groups.
The Covid 19 pandemic shouldn’t prevent you from hosting a successful Easter party. These tips can help to make your event perfect.
