How To Plan For A Successful Milestone Birthday
Milestone birthdays aren’t just birthdays. They highlight milestones as well as achievements. As you probably already know, there is always much more to a milestone birthday than just a cake and a few bottles of wine. It could something simple like celebrating the last teen year and ushering the twenties.
It could be a loved one turning 40 and “starting their life” as the old adage goes. Or it could be an elderly loved one celebrating his or her 100th birthday. Whatever the case, milestone birthdays deserve ample planning just like weddings do. Here’s how to go about planning for a great milestone birthday event.
Hire an Experienced Events Planner
It is very challenging and almost impossible to plan for a perfect milestone birthday on your own. Chances are you will need someone to help you with the décor, lighting and the food and drink. With a competent events planner on board, hosting 100 or even more people for your milestone birthday event shouldn’t be a problem.
You cannot say the same if you choose to do everything on your own. The best you can do in this situation is to set aside a budget for the event and plan early enough to make sure everything goes smoothly. When you take on the task yourself you are sure to forget something and there is more chance of things going wrong.
Make sure to Capture the Milestone Birthday Event
You’ll most likely want to capture many moments of the milestone birthday party with photos and even a video. This will mean hiring a photographer as well as a videographer if you want the highest quality results.
Coordinating the professionals tasked with capturing the event can be hard on your own, especially if you also checking that the food is served in the correct way and the right music is playing in the background as well as other things.
Save the energy you’d have spent on running up and down and have someone from a professional events planning company check on all these things. They can take care of all of your photography and video requirements. You just need to sit back and enjoy the event.
Food And Drinks
This is important particularly where you expect many guests. The last thing you want is to have your guests have a good time and later on miss out on food and drinks. Work out the number of people you are expecting.
Then work with the event planning company you chose to ensure there will be enough food and drink for everyone. One easy way of going about this is to make a list of all the people you issued invitation cards to. That will give you a good idea of what and who to expect.
Choosing The Venue
The venue you choose for a milestone birthday can make or break the whole event. You do not want to have too many people trying to squeeze in to your backyard. At the same time, you do not want to go for a place meant for 1000 people when you’re expecting just 100 people.
Your events planner should be able to share ideas with you on what will work best for you depending on the number of people you expect to host. They should be able to suggest suitable venues if you don’t have anything specific in mind
