Graduation Party Rentals In the Buffalo, Amherst & Hamburg, NY Area
Graduations are time to celebrate all the achievements that your child has accomplished at the completion of their school career. Whether it’s high school, college, or beyond, a party is a great way to express how proud you are of all their hard work.
Many graduation parties involve your child’s friends from school, aunts, uncles, grandparents and other extended family members and anyone else who has helped them through the school years.
With so many guests, it is important to make sure you have all the rental equipment you need to have a great party. This can include a tent, just in case it rains, chairs, for guests to sit, and tables for guests to eat at. We also recommend getting a few extra tables for things such as food prep and gifts.
For all your graduation parties in Buffalo, NY, contact AJ's Party Tent Rental. If you are unsure of how many tables and chairs to order, don’t worry, just let us know how many guests you expect, and we can help you determine what you will need. With AJ's Party Tent Rental you can focus on partying and leave the rest to us!
Planning a Graduation Party
Good planning is the key to a great graduation party. Follow these helpful tips from AJ’s Party Tent Rental to make sure that your grad has the time of their life!
Budget and Organize
The first thing you’ll want to do is choose a date and location. At this point in time, you can afford to be flexible. Choose if you want to hold the party at your home or at another location and prepare a list of potential dates. Check them against known scheduling conflicts and, if you’re renting, make a few phone calls to ensure that your space is available.
Once you’ve got a date and time set, determine how many guests you’d like to invite. While it can be tempting to just hit “Invite All” in your address book, a graduation party is a big expense. If you’re not sure who to invite and who not to invite, come up with a ballpark number of guests and work around that.
Once you know how many people will be coming, start calling caterers, rental companies and other vendors for bids. Make a list of needs and priorities before you call so you can be sure you get the most accurate possible estimate, and choose whoever you think provides the best deal for the highest level of service.
At least three weeks before the party, start sending out invitations. Paper invitations are nice, but electronic invitations can be cheaper and just as effective.
The Lead Up
About a week before the party, start stocking up on everything you’ll need. Extra food and beverages are a must, as well as any paper products you might need. Confirm the date and time of delivery for any equipment you’re renting and pick up any extra decorations you might need.
The Day Of
No matter how much planning you’ve done, you’ll probably feel a bit harried when you’re setting everything up the day of the party. Setting out food, cleaning up, greeting guests: it’s a lot to handle.
But once everything is in full swing, remember to take time to enjoy yourself. The party may be about your graduate, but you’ve earned the chance to kick back too.
