So you have added a R.S.V.P to your party invitation, should you expect a response?
Yes you should, but it probably want happen!
It seems to be in the culture of birthday parties, that they will only tell you if they can’t come.
Remember the people at the party are the important ones. you’ve done food boxes for the amount of children invited, so not a lot of food wasted.
If its the Easter, Summer or Christmas holidays and your holding your party at this time? expect numbers to dip.
Ive seen many parties, you have 30 mins to prepare the room, before the first guests arrive. Wow that’s a lot of stress and chances are, you will do the wrong thing wasting your time and money!
So you buy foil banners and start putting them up, but can you tell the difference, among all the other clutter on the wall? Banners are a waste of time!
So the best way to decorate a village hall? This is the keep it simple method: Helium balloons on strings, tied to the back of the chairs. its that simple!
You can buy the canisters of helium and do this your self? Naaaaaaa! its usually £1 a balloon. the company will inflate all balloons to the exact size! its a no brainer.
someone else does it for you, its relatively cheap with massive impact on the room and the kids have a balloon to take home with them.
If you have a larger budget? add bunting, flags on strings going across the room. its more expensive but you get impact for your money and the bunting can be used for other parties in the future, be careful on that ladder!
