Hosting a Graduation Party
Planning a Guest List
Planning your guest list is probably the most important thing that sets everything else up. Your guest list should include family and close friends that will be able to attend. You should also consider inviting fellow graduates so that they can celebrate this special occasion together. This will create a comfortable environment for everyone.
The Banquet Hall
Now that you have an idea of how many people will be attending, you can start to look for the perfect banquet hall. There are two things to take into consideration here: do they have enough space for everyone and are they centrally located? We will pick these apart separately.
Size of the Venue
Considering your guest list, you need to take into consideration the size of the venue. If the venue is too large for the number of guests, it might feel lonely the whole time. When the venue is too small, everyone might feel cramped which can even lead to fines from the local fire marshall. Choosing the right size venue will make everyone feel comfortable and welcome.
You will need to find somewhere centrally located. Having some obscure location will make it harder for people to attend. When it is centrally located and with plenty of parking, you can be assured of a high attendance rate.
This one is pretty important also. You don’t necessarily have to serve dinner for the event. Only serving cheese and vegetable plates might make it seem to look cheap. Ask your caterer for some ideas that they have using their experience. If you don’t have a caterer that you have already worked with, The Cellar Baltimore can help you find the right caterer for your event
Ask them what else can they offer besides a roof over your head. Chairs and tables are a must. You might also want to see if they can recommend a professional caterer or even entertainment options. If they are reputable, they will have recommendations for you to make everything easier.
