HOPP TIPS FOR PLANNING A PARTY
A Bit of Interactive Entertainment
There’s nothing like a bit of interactive entertainment to really get a party started. Whether it’s a roaming magician, onsite artist to do portraits of your guests or mini-cocktail mixing session where they are invited to create their own drink concoctions, having a form of interactive entertainment won’t only get people in the party mood but it can also be a great ice-breaker and conversation starter at events where not everyone knows each other. Before booking your entertainment, double check with your venue that there are no restrictions that could get in the way (fire breathers are probably a no-go in an event space without the necessary fire precautions.) Browse through our industry-leading party entertainers and find one to surprise and delight your guests.
Think of the Environment
All events have an environmental impact and as we face today’s climate change crisis, it’s important to consider how you can minimise yours. From small changes like using only environmentally-friendly party balloons, decorations and accessories and encouraging guests to participate in carbon offsetting programs to counteract their travel impact, to larger considerations like opting for vegan or plant-based catering options, there’s always something you can do to make your party more eco-friendly. We’re proud to partner with several premium suppliers who put the environment at the forefront of everything they do.

Mix Up Your Guest List
Depending on what kind of party you are throwing, some events can be perfect opportunities to bring together groups of friends that wouldn’t otherwise have the chance to meet each other. If your party involves a seated dinner, why not use table plans and place names to encourage people to mix and mingle with guests they don’t know? While this can sometimes be met with rolling eyes, from our experience the end result is always positive! An added bonus? Place names are a great opportunity to show off a bit of your style. From watercolour floral illustrations and hand calligraphy to embossed gold-foiled designs, place names and table plans are a fun way to get a bit creative with your party planning.
