Great your guests with a beautiful floral arrangement in the foyer. The fragrance will surround your guests with the scent and the aromatherapy benefits will lift their spirits. Or you can decorate the front door with a pretty wreath or fabric. If you have walkway up to the door, for evening events, place uplights in the trees or on the path.

Be sure and hire a waiter. This will allow you to enjoy your guests and free up your hands. Don’t get a friend, because they’ll want to enjoy the event, instead visit a site like TaskRabbit or call a local restaurant and a referral.

Purchase a few three tier cake stands for food display. These inexpensive items save space and add elegance to even simple menus.

Never use paper plates and paper cups. It’s not sustainable and you should consider the environment. Instead, rent from a local party rental, or purchase affordable items you can continue to use.
