In part one of Melbourne Dj hires posts about planning a first birthday party we talked about why throwing a house party would be a massive cost saver. In this blog post we will talk more about how to throw a great house party. Melbourne Dj hire have worked at a lot of house parties where the hosts actually are now hiring someone to take care of drinks. You won’t need to walk around asking people if they want more wine or beer as you will have someone there looking after drinks. There are plenty of bar and wait staff who are happy to earn extra money during the day.
Melbourne Dj hire have worked at house parties where there is a table of drinks set up in iced buckets and there was a bartender behind it pouring drinks for guests. It is something not completely necessary but would less worry for the host to have.
Speaking about drinks, it is also a fraction of the cost to organise your own drinks than to pay for a bar tab at a venue!
With a first birthday people usually will not be sitting down at the tables as there are lots of kids running around, Melbourne Dj hire have noticed that finger food is always the best. Some items that are clean and easy to eat are perfect for guests who are standing or sitting with one drink on their hand. You need a mix of fresh food and a mix of the heavier more filling hot food. Great fresh finger foods are rice paper rolls, antipasto skewers and finger sandwiches. The more substantial pieces are meat skewers, meatballs, mini sausage rolls and pies and there are plenty more!
Then there is the cake and sweets, keep up the canapé theme by making fruit skewers, Melbourne Dj hire have even seen some clients use a shaped cutter to make them. Ore appealing to kids. There are plenty of local cake makers who would be happy to make a cake for a kids party at a great price, they can also make cookies, cupcakes and other desserts to add to the spread.
