Whatever kind of outdoor event you are planning, take considerable time and effort in planning all the important details.
Here are some helpful tips for making your next outdoor gathering a huge success:
Balance creativity and sensitivity.
People tend to think of outdoor events on sprawling lawns or backyards, but you can also plan the perfect outdoor event at local historic sites, forest locales, and city parks. The possibilities are as endless as your imagination; just check to see if your ideal outdoor event location requires permits.
What great outdoor event doesn’t have food? Consider convenient snacks and finger foods that can be eaten without too much mess or utensils. Hors d’oeuvres, fresh vegetables, and stuffed savory or sweet pastries are delicious, and can be catered and consumed easily.
Don’t forget the amenities!
If you’re having an outdoor event, it’s important to think about lighting (for longer/evening events), trash, and toilets. Solar lamps are a great way to extend a daytime party for a few more hours without tripping over power cords, and can be easily found in home improvement stores. Trash receptacles are often overlooked but important to any outdoor event and, if your venue doesn’t provide them, it’s important to make sure you have enough bins to handle your party’s litter.
Last, but not least, consider what kind of restroom facilities your venue has, and when/where they are available. For many outdoor locations, bringing in luxury restroom trailers may be the easiest, most comfortable fit for your event and your guests. (click here to learn more about portable restroom trailers)
You want your guests to feel important and taken care of. Providing luxury right down to the restroom toilets can make your event one everyone will remember.
