Some occasions in life come only once and some are so important that you have to celebrate it with your loved ones and share the sacred memories together. Maybe it’s your wedding day or the first birthday of your little one, it doesn’t matter what it is as long as it’s special to you, then it should be celebrated.
To have an awesome celebration you don’t need to have a lot of money or invite loads of people (some of them might just come out of politeness and not through the pure joy of celebrating your life event). It could be plain and simple but it could still be a memorable one to you and to those who attend it.
First things first. Go through your budget. Determine how much you are going to spend. Please don’t over spend on glamourous things that you don’t even need, to impress the guests. It is the quality that matters not how much you spent on it.
Prioritize on the essentials. If it’s a birthday party then obviously the cake, the food and the entertainment. The latter two are a universal requirement in every function so you might as well put them down on every list. Speaking of entertainment (depending on the function) there should be music so that the monotony of people talking in large gatherings and eating is broken with a good song or two. Whether its live music or not depends on your budget (obviously) and the type of function you are planning.
When you have your initial budget and the list of things you want to do, choose a good venue for your function. You can go through different function venues in Bendigo and decide on the best place that caters to your needs as well as your budget. There are lot of places available and you can just go online (the best and the easiest way) or go through some newspaper or magazine advertisements and find the best one. Make sure that you go through all their offers and select the one that is most profitable to you. The selection of the place should be done with the key important things in mind such as the budget (always important), the number of guests, types of activities planned, the kind of celebration in mind, convenient in terms of distance and access etc. Make sure you find a good place with maximum benefits and minimum cost because then you can spend that money on important things to improve the celebration.
Be very organized. Keep an organizer in your hand and write down all the things you need to do and tick them off once you are done.
