The most essential tip when planning social gatherings and special occasions on a large scale is to start by choosing an appropriate venue. A South Coast reception hall that can only seat 150 guests will not work for your party of 500. If you are going to plan a party in Swansea for a large number of guests, make sure to select a banquet facility in South Coast that can accommodate everyone comfortably and provide you with the amenities, services, and options you need to pull off a successful event. Multiple ballrooms, included tables and chairs, audiovisual equipment, and tech support – these are just some of the things that our clients ask for the most when they come to Venus de Milo. For more than 50 years, we have worked hard to earn a solid reputation for hosting some of the most memorable events in the local area.
Staging the Venue
The good news is that you can take any blank canvas of a venue and turn it into anything you would like. So the same space can work for a large birthday or anniversary party, retirement celebration, company awards dinner, charity fundraiser, concert, or seminar series. The furniture, decorations, and arrangement that you choose for the space is really what makes the difference. Work closely with our team at Venus de Milo to discuss your plans for the event when you plan a party in Swansea at our venue. We have worked with many different clients to support plans for many unique types of parties, celebrations, gatherings, and functions over the years. While you have the ultimate choice in how things are set up in the ballroom, our team can offer suggestions, insight, and experience that you can use to your advantage. This is another benefit of working with a reputable venue for your large-scale social gatherings and special occasions events.
Some examples of how staging can make a difference include:
- lecture or presentation – create an audience out of chairs, leaving aisles in between sections to make it easy for people to move around
- workshop or training session – use long tables and chairs in stadium seating-style to create a classroom effect that will seat all of your guests and give them a way to take notes or set up their laptops
- networking event – instead of folding chairs, consider adding couches and tables, booths and nooks, along with cafe-style tables and chairs to encourage mingling and give people space to talk
- banquet or dinner – ask about banquet-style seating that features round tables and Chiavari chairs for a touch of elegance that will make everyone feel special
Offer Creative Amenities
Every party needs a little something extra to make it exciting and memorable. Photo booths with theme-related props and photo strips that feature the name, date, and location of the event are always popular with guests. However, it is also good to think outside the box and do something really unexpected, like unique decorations, soft-serve ice cream machines, food truck-style snacks, Hawaiian shave ice, and social media-worthy walls or backgrounds will really get the party started. Simple backdrops can be used, but creative 3D walls are all the rage. Browse the internet for ideas that you can incorporate into your party theme that will make guests lineup to get their pictures taken in front of them.
Unique dining menus can also be the hit of the party. Another benefit of choosing Venus de Milo as your banquet facility in South Coast is that we are also an award-winning restaurant.
