The Perfect Wedding Reception Venue

A couple of months ago, my younger sister got married in a beautiful ceremony at her church. Our father has pastored this rural, evangelical church for the past twenty-nine years. Therefore, this special place to both of us was the obvious right venue to have her wedding at. After the wedding ceremony, my parents hosted a reception in the church’s activity building. My sister even decorated this large building herself. Have you picked a venue for your wedding, but don’t know where to have your reception at? When looking for the right place to have this special event, consider your personality and the personality of your future mate. For instance, if you’re cowboy or a cowgirl, you probably wouldn’t enjoy a wedding reception at an upscale country club in town. On this blog, you will discover the best places to host a wedding reception at.

Partying It Up? Take A Look At Some Of The Latest Trends In Party Planning

by Virgil Woods

Partying it up with friends and family is a fun and exciting way to celebrate birthdays, weddings and special events and holidays. Parties are a great way to get together with loved ones but sometimes the same types of tables, party favors and entertainment can become dull and boring. If you are looking to spice up your party, take a look at some of the latest trends in party ideas to get an idea of what you may do for your event.

Less Formal Table Settings and Decor

For events like weddings or semi-formal occasions, the latest trend is decorating using less formal decor. For example, hanging simple but elegant garlands around doorways, over windows or even in the center of the room makes for a dramatic but beautiful setting. You can still have a gorgeous table with no tablecloth at all. Instead of candles or elaborate centerpieces, opt for fresh flowers in simple but sleek vases.

Family Style Dining

One of the latest trends in restaurants is family style dining. This means instead of individual ready-made plates for everyone at the table, everyone seated shares in larger plates placed in the center of the table that can be passed around. A family style meal served at your party instead of hosting a buffet or a formal sit-down meal helps bring everyone together since they are sharing the same delicious food. This is a great way for those who have just met to get to know new people too.

Unique Entertainment

The majority of parties' entertainment features bands or DJ playing music in which your guests can dance the night away. The latest trends, however, include somewhat unique entertainment you might not have thought of, such as a photo booth for guests to create fun and entertaining memories of their own. These booths can be rented for the whole evening and usually come with costumes. The booth may even have several digital backgrounds to choose from. Another idea is to host a casino party with games of chance in which guests can win things like chocolates or small prizes they can take home to remember this fun evening.

The idea of any unique entertainment is to provide something new and different to your guests and keep them on their toes. If you're looking for party supplies, rentals, and tents for your event, visit a business in your area like Ken Rent.
