Event Services Can Enhance Your Special Occasion

If you're planning any type of special occasion, calling on the help of a professional event services company can help ensure a smooth celebration. There is a wide variety of event services to choose from that will save you both time and stress during the party-planning process.

Event services can come in handy for a wide range of special events, such as child and adult birthday parties, graduation celebrations, bridal and baby showers, wedding receptions and even large holiday get-togethers. Depending on your event-planning budget, you can use professional services to lend a hand in every aspect of the party, or just in one or two specific areas, such as meal preparation. 

If you're hosting the special event in a venue such as a reception hall or hotel ballroom, you may have access to onsite services, including catering and decor. When holding a party at a private residence, you can hire the event services professionals yourself.

Here is a list of special event services that can enhance your next celebration.

1. Caterers

Whether you're planning a large reception or an intimate backyard birthday party, a professional caterer can make the process much easier by providing everything from appetizers and finger foods to gourmet, three-course meals. Depending on the type of event you're hosting, you can have the caterers simply drop off the prepared food or provide professional waitstaff to serve your guests.

When choosing the best caterer, consider the type of meal you'd like to serve. Some ideas include casual buffet-style dinners, small plates for elegant cocktail parties, build-your-own burger or taco bars, or full-service dinners with appetizers and desserts.

If the event is being held outdoors, caterers can use grills to prepare skewers and other warm weather-inspired foods. 

2. Furniture Rental Companies 

Some furniture rental companies specialize in special events, offering everything from tables and seating elements to portable, LED-lit dance floors. If you're hosting a casual outdoor affair, such as in a tent or country barn, they can provide metal folding chairs and rough-hewn wood tables.

For sophistication receptions, you can rent large banquet tables and cover them with linens that coordinate with your event theme. For example, a turquoise tablecloth or runner and matching cloth napkins would work well for a beach-inspired celebration. 

3. Tent Rental Companies

There is a wide variety of tents available for rental, such as clearspan structures to allow the sun to shine in, marquee tents and frame canopies. After choosing the type of tent you want, the rental company will most likely offer set-up and breakdown services in the rental fee.
