The entertainment service in your private party is perhaps the most important element to throwing a memorable party. Choosing the perfect entertainment is a task that must not be taken lightly because it will either make your party or break it. Now I admit that the word ‘perfect’ is subjective, but if you’ve been in a nightclub or gone to a few parties during your college years, there’s a general idea for what that ‘perfect’ entertainment is.
The most common entertainment service is the DJ because the DJ fits in any theme for any type of party. The right DJ can bring your party to new heights with great energy that circulates throughout the party room. You don’t want the wrong DJ that could bring your party crashing down. The DJ you hire should be able to produce a high energy atmosphere and maintain it throughout the hours of your private party. From beginning to end, your guests expect to have fun and to enjoy themselves. A high energy atmosphere will put your guests in the partying mood. Your DJ should also be charismatic and engaging because your guests may ask the DJ for song requests or they may just want chat with the DJ. It’s hard to predict what could happen, so it’s best to cover all the bases and ensure that the DJ you hire is a really cool person.
But let’s think outside the box of conventional entertainment planning. Perfection really only lasts for a moment, so find that moment and make it count. Other entertainment services you can hire for your private party are acrobats, aerialists, fire performers, ice sculptors, and the list can literally go on. Use your imagination and make unique connections between your theme and the entertainment services. Imagine aerialists that dance in the sky while acrobats defy gravity. Or imagine an ice sculptor craving a block of ice into a beautiful swan, but only to have that swan torched by the fire performers. Or better yet, have a group of dancers introduce the star of the event in a flash with custom GOBO (laser writing) and confetti. Hopefully, I got the ball rolling for you. Brainstorm and see what you get! If you’re stuck, seek professional services that can help you plan the perfect entertainment.
One last thing, and this isn’t directly related to choosing the ‘perfect’ entertainment, but ask the event space you plan to rent if they offer entertainment services. Reduce your need to contact several vendors and work with one vendor to get everything you need.
