Whether you’re throwing a graduation party or helping a beloved tie the knot, planning celebrations is a big undertaking. While some party-preppers opt for fine cutlery and table linen, many look to save a buck and expedite cleanup by choosing disposable serveware. But choosing disposable doesn’t have to seem shoddy. By following these tips, you can make sure your budget bash is still organized and attractive.
Get the Logistics Right
Even if you have fresh bouquets on every table and a tent draped with fairy lights, any pretty party can fall short of fabulous if it lacks the essentials. Running out of plates while serving the cake can discourage your most enthusiastic guests. When shopping for party supply packages, remember:
- Cups and Plates: about 3 per guest
- Napkins: about 4 per guest
- Flatware: about 2 spoons, 2 fork more »
Your daughter’s high school band has had many, many fundraisers. From selling cookie dough to washing cars, your children have found a way to make sure that they are able to take the summer trips that they love and offer the highest level of training when it comes to marching formations and clinician workshops.
This year, however, the band thinks they have found an excellent option. With specially designed coffee packaging bags that include the name of the school and the band, the group is working with a local company that has created a harvest coffee that is wildly popular.

Creative expression is one of the fundamental tenants of any society. It was one of the very first things we did as a species after we became a species and has seen so much diversity and so many variations over so many thousands and thousands of years. From hospital art to hospitality art to hotel art to even corporate art consultants and art for restaurants, art is everywhere, in all forms and in all times. But where it did it come from exactly and how has it spread as a construct? And where can it be used most effectively? Before we can ask the latter question, we have to ask the former first and that’s not an especially easy one to answer. We can start by talking about the earliest known art which is thought to be cave drawings done by hand and still on display in a remote region of France. There is no known art that predates these simple drawings but that doesn’t mea more »

As the weather warms up, many people enjoy entertaining outdoors. When hosting an outdoor event, it’s always nice to have an area where guests can socialize. If it’s really sunny and bright outside, for example, it’s a good idea to provide a shaded area. During the evening, strings of lights can provide just the right amount of illumination.
There are different tent rentals that can be perfect for outdoor entertaining. Frame and pole tents are the two basic types of large event tents. Their tops are available in either polyester or vinyl. Most tents used for large events are made out of vinyl because it is a strong and durable material.
Since there needs to be enough space to accommodate everyone on the guest list as well as tables, chairs, and other fixtures, the number of square feet that will be needed can be easily determined. As soon as the number of guest more »
If you’re planning a fundraising event in the near future, you should do everything you can to ensure that it’s fun and creative. Here are some of our favorite tried and true ideas and tips to help you plan a wonderful fundraiser:
Find plenty of entertainment
You should try and book plenty of entertainment for the event, including a main attraction and one or two warm up activities. You need something for everybody there, and though it’s difficult to please everyone, it’s a lot easier to do so with multiple entertainers. Talk to local magicians, comedians, and musicians and see if your fundraising guests will enjoy their talents. You can also find plenty of fun games to play for everyone in attendance to pass the time. Also, keep in mind that you have a limited meeting space if you’re throwing the event indoors. So maybe bringing the entire circus to your event might not be the best idea. But don’t stop looking for creative ways to entertain your guests!
Work with nonprofit organizations for assistance
In 2013, more than 1.4 million nonprofit organizations were registered in the United States. All those organizations actually employed over 10% of the entire U.S. workforce and these organizations usually have terrific ideas of their own and with more creative brains in the meeting space, a much better fundraising event will be organized. Getting additional help is always a good thing, too. Rather than focusing on every single aspect of the special event, you can delegate certain aspects to nonprofits, individual volunteers, or anyone else helping you out. Serving food, for instance, might not be your specialty at all, but if a nonprofit organization prides itself on serving people delicious and healthy foods, they can handle the meals while you focus on the entertainment or anything else.
Consider throwing a themed party
Fundraisers, if not done properly, can be quite boring. Even if the entertainment is great, the food is wonderful, and there are plenty of additional helpers, if the night feels boring, it won’t be a great success. Consider a few creative theme ideas and sticking to them throughout the night of the party. They might feel a little forced or even a little awkward, but if you and your guests buy into it, a themed party can make for a much more entertaining night.
Good luck throwing your next fun fundraiser and if you want to find quality meeting space for these special events, contact Burnside Gamleplace today.
