The wedding is approaching and you are the maid-of-honor – or bridesmaid, or mother-of-the-bride, etc. – and now it’s time to throw a bridal shower. Congratulations, that’s a wonderful responsibility. But it can also be a lot of work – and stress!
Bridal showers come in all shapes and sizes these days. From a casual gathering of close friends to a large traditional get-together with extended family, friends, and neighbors. Regardless of size and style, there’s one sure way to save yourself some party planning stress: book a venue!
With so many other things to think about, like guest list, games, party theme, invitations, and more, consider the benefits of hosting the shower at a venue like North Oaks Golf Club.
Hosting a party at your home means deep cleaning every space where guests might end up, including the bathroom, living room, kitchen, dining room, and even the yard. By hosting the shower elsewhere, you’ll skip right over having to clean and prepare your house for guests. Not to mention the dreaded after-party clean up of dirty dishes, decorations, and getting your house back in order.
Plenty of space.
We’ve all been at those parties where guests sit on little folding chairs, crammed into a too-small space while balancing paper plates of food on their laps. Using an event venue means you’ll have the right amount of space for guests with the right layout for mingling, dining, playing games, and opening gifts. Everyone can be together and comfortable.
Set up and tear down is covered.
Staff members will set up all the tables, chairs, and decorations so you can stay focused on welcoming guests and keeping the bride happy!
North Oaks has its own culinary staff to provide top-quality food and beverages. Professional planners help you select the type and quantity of food you’d like served. There’s no need for a detailed grocery list, guessing the right amounts to serve, borrowing crock-pots and spending the majority of the party in the kitchen dealing with the food. Even better, there are no dishes to wash.
Help with decor.
Sure, you’ll likely still have some of your own personalized decorations to bring to the party. But much of it can be provided by the venue. If hosting an event at home, you might spruce up the place with something like fresh-cut flowers. North Oaks is always ready for guests with beautiful landscaping, welcoming interiors, and an inviting atmosphere. You only need to think about the actual party decorations.
Party planning back-up.
At your house, you are the one and only party planner. You are responsible for every last detail and making sure the party goes off without a hitch. Hosting an event at North Oaks means you have a whole team at your disposal. Think of them as your own personal staff members there to make sure your party is a success. They’ll offer fresh ideas and assist in planning, then set up, clean up, serve food, answer questions, and generally do everything that is required to make sure you and your guests enjoy the party.
Whether you are the maid-of-honor, bridesmaid, mother-of-the-bride, or close friend in charge of throwing a bridal party, give yourself the gift of less stress by hosting it at a venue!
