Hiring a boat for your birthday party can be a great idea, but there’s also a few different things you should be thinking about. It could take quite a bit of planning to get everything just right, so don’t be afraid to ask for help with the preparation. If you’ve always wanted to celebrate your birthday on board a boat, now is as good a time as any and here are the top tips to make it a party to remember for everyone.
Make a list of your essentials
Think first about what you want the party to feature and include. You’ll need food, drinks, music, decorations and a dance floor for a start, but what other extras might you need? Make a list of these, including things such as a karaoke machine, a photo booth and any other party items, which you consider to be absolute essentials.
Shop around for a good deal
Once you know what you’re looking for, you can start doing some research into party boats and the deals, which are on offer. You might find some which only offer the hire of the boat and then you need to supply everything else yourself. Others will offer a package deal so that you don’t have to worry about hiring several different people or companies to provide different aspects of the party e.g. DJ, catering, decorations.
Invite everyone in advance
You should expect to pay a fair bit of money to hire a boat and host your party on it, so make sure you invite everyone with plenty of time to put the date in their diaries and book time off work if necessary. If you’re holding the party at a different location to where you live, people might need to get more than one day off work or organize travel arrangements to ensure they can attend the party. Send out invitations if you want to stick with a traditional method of party planning, or simply create an event on social media (or a group chat).
Stay organized beforehand so you can enjoy the event
The more organized you are beforehand and the time more you spend putting everything in order, the more you’ll be able to relax and enjoy the party once it’s happening. You won’t need to stress about one thing or another in the lead-up to it or during the actual event, and if you’re enjoying yourself, everybody else will too.
Provide some feedback afterwards
After the birthday party is over, provide some feedback to the company to let them know how it went. If you want to use them again, it’s a great way to start building a good relationship. If you feel like something went badly and you would like to mention it, companies are always happy to hear customer feedback so go ahead and don’t worry about how your feedback is going to be received. You’ve paid for a service, so it’s important that your voice is heard too.
