Post and Engage on Social Media
Social media is the easiest way to get the word out there about your event. Posting every day up until your event ensures you keep your guests excited. Be sure to engage with people who like and comment on your posts that way your audience will be more inclined to share the post and attend your event. Social media is the most important tool in making sure your event has a sufficient amount of guests.
Don’t Overthink the Venue
Don’t spend too much time worrying about the venue, after all, it’s about what’s inside that counts. If you are having an office party, have it at the office. If you are hosting a shower, try to use someone’s house. This will ensure you can focus on other important details such as food and activities.
Focus on Quality, Not Quantity
There doesn’t need to be a hundred different food, drinks, or activities. Keep it short and sweet and your guests will still be happy. For food, have small appetizers and do a buffet-style meal ensuring everyone is satisfied and full. For drinks, have wine, beer, and juices, no need for all the fancy alcohol. Keep the activities to a minimum, have a few amazingly executed activities! It’s all about how you present each aspect of the event that really matters.
Keep the Decor Simple
Do not waste valuable time and money on buying a ton of decor for the party. Using too many decorations in a small space can be overwhelming. Stick to vases of fresh-cut flowers, and throw in a little ambiance lighting. White Christmas lights are your best friend at this point and it really dresses up the decor.
Overall, the key to a last-minute event is simplicity. Less is more essential. Try not to be overwhelmed because with these helpful tips you will be hosting a successful event in no time!
