Party planning for parties from 12 to over 1000 people
by Patty Sachs
Special to Everything2000
No matter what the size of your New Year's eve party, the Year 2000 will command special details and more elaborate planning for every facet of the event. Invitations, activities, refreshments, entertainment, gifts and party favors will all carry a motif of the new century, to qualify them as souvenirs. From 12 to 2000, the number of guests will divine the many details and description of the celebration. This is definitely the year of "Gusto".
The Small-Intimate Y2K Party (12-48)
The Mid-Size Y2K Party (48-120)
Now we're talking about filling up a barn or a ballroom, here. Hotels or restaurants regularly organize such events for customers, associations for members, or employers for employees. In many large cities a promoter will rent a space, plan the bash and sell tickets to attendees! The person(s) who host this sort of huge event need to get extremely organized.
Pre-party record keeping and minute-by-minute event schedules are absolutely essential. Floor plans, decoration schematics, menus, seating charts, traffic-flow charts and even parking arrangements must be included. The gala event which may require committee meetings, can, with super organization and "constant care and feeding", be one that guests will remember way into the next century.
The Y2K Extravaganza (1000 and More)
All around the world "welcome to the new century and/or millennium" celebrations of all description will take place including three and four day events to include thousands of guests, cruises, excursions and tours that are already booked solid.
The secret to making the large Y2K party a success is to treat it like a very intimate party, by paying attention to the smallest detail and never saying, "Oh that is too much trouble for a group this size". The touches that leave lasting memories for the guests are the unexpected, the difficult-to-do and the minute detail that elicits the comment, "They didn't forget a thing!" A well known fact is that these unforgettable touches do not have to cost a lot of money‹they just need to show extraordinary thought.
