Easy ways to make your party sparkle

Easy ways to make your party sparkle

Impress your guests with these 6 party must-dos:

  •  Create a playlist that is long enough to last the day/night.
  •  Be sure to check your guests for food allergies and dietary requirements.
  • Make sure you stock up on alcohol free fizz, mocktails and soft drinks for kids and non-drinkers.
  • Set up a play area for the little ones - why not create their own mini buffet or craft table?
  • Scatter disposable cameras or polaroid cameras around so your guests can snap away as they celebrate.
  • Create personalised parting gifts for your guests to have as a keepsake.
