You’re In Charge of the Party. Don’t Panic!
We get it. Your friend who does Marketing for Google has an entire department for Corporate Event Planning. It’s over there… in Building 15, or was it Quad 51? It doesn’t matter. The point is, not every company has the size, budget, and man/woman power to order hors d’oeuvres by the box truck. Relax, you’ve got this!
It Takes a Team
We know. You like to be in control. Salad fork on the left. Place-card above the dessert spoon. But there’s more to a successful event than channeling your inner Martha Stewart. You need a creative, hardworking team to step up and help when Murphy’s Law rears its head. So take a deep breath, let it out, and delegate!
Start With the Venue
Choosing the right place is key to determining the rest of the tasks. Easier said than done, right? Actually, you’d be surprised. When you start calling around, you’ll find that many of your city’s or town’s most charming locales are just waiting to book the Rainbow Vista Suite. You’re just a smartphone, deposit, and proof-of-insurance away from checking off the biggest box on your list.
Audition Those Caterers With a Tasting
Don’t rely on Yelp to choose a caterer. For all you know, “Stacy” (Loved It!) is really a paid digital shill who would give 5 stars to gas-station sushi. Instead, insist that all catering candidates invite you and your team for a tasting. If those Smoked Trout Blinis don’t rock your world, there are plenty more eager, young chefs in the culinary sea.
Don’t Leave Live Music Off Your List!
Come on. You didn’t really think we’d leave this one out, did you? So let’s get real. Once you’ve got four walls and food and drink in the bag, it’s time to get serious about Live Music Entertainment.
“But what about a DJ?” you ask? Well, that’s good too. At Replicas Music, we hire only the very best DJs, and Lighting/Production designers to make even your “impossible-to-please” boss say “WOW!” (Yes, it CAN be done!)
But there’s something about Live Music – let’s call it the “Human Touch” – that transforms a great event into a stellar one. And, just as you made perfection of your venue, décor, food, drink and ambiance, the same has to be said about your live music choices, too!
Whether it’s a Big Band… Tribute Band… Latin, Jazz or Bluegrass ensemble… or pretty much ANYTHING ELSE you can think of, The Replicas Music Entertainment can meet and exceed your standards, vision, and budget. So give us a call… and let us know how those hors d’oeuvres turned out!
