If you are planning a party at your own private location, please make sure you are aware of all the different things you are responsible for, being the host. Visit sites such as http://www.alwaystakingcare.ca/responsible-hosting.html which is hosted by the LCBO and provides tons of information on how to host a party responsibly. There is a lot to consider when hosting a party such as special occasion permits, parking arrangements, to even choosing a designated driver for all your guests. This site also includes decorating ideas specific to your location, as well as, food and beverage options.
Another good site is https://www.palcanada.com/en/ which gives you a clear listing of all the different liabilities that you should be aware of before hosting your own party. If you feel you want a caterer to do a lot of the planning for you, then check out different catering websites. They will tell you what they are and are not responsible for and how they can help you with other items, than just the food, such as licensing and providing staff to serve at your event. A good caterer with a great reputation can really alleviate a lot of the stress of planning a home party with their knowledge and years of expertise in this industry.
The party scene is definitely changing. Home events such as backyard BBQ’s and cocktail parties are even being planned for weddings instead of traditional full receptions. There is always a good reason to host an event at your home from a birthday party to a neighbourhood get-to-know-you party. The many benefits of home entertaining include the comfort of known surroundings, a more personal style of decorating and your complete control over the party timeline. A responsibly planned event means a relaxed event, which in turn, means an enjoyable event for both you as the host and your guests. Isn’t that what it’s all about? Happy times with family and friends J
