Are you planning an outdoor party at your home this year? Although you may not need a permit to hold the event on your own property, it never hurts to let the neighbours know of the up and coming event … you know, so they can put their wheelie bins over their driveway to stop people parking across it! If you are expecting a significant number of guests or are worried about “ring-ins” on the night, pre-registering your party with the Party Safe initiative and using the resources they provide can help to set expectations about the party. When planning for the atmosphere of the party however, here are some simple ideas which can contribute to the success of your party.
Party planning doesn’t need to be tricky, it just requires a little forethought. Depending on the type
of party you have in mind, you may need to hire tables and chairs or even a basic stage for the
entertainment. Making a checklist so that you don’t leave anything out is a great idea. Suddenly
realising an hour before the guests arrive that you forgot to order a toilet trailer is probably a bit late
in the day to fix what will almost certainly be a very big problem, especially if you did not intend for
guests to use the facilities inside your home.
Even portable toilets deserve a little bit of bling for a special occasion!
