3 Ideas for Creating an Unforgettable Special Event

If you’re a professional event planner or charged with organizing your family’s or company’s annual retreat, you might wonder how to make the event unforgettable for all. Here are three diverse ideas to get you started.

1. Rent a Mobile Kitchen

Mobile commercial kitchen rentals let you feed a large group of people while running the kitchen side of things the way you and your culinary team prefer. Perform at your best as a team, knowing that you have a fully equipped, state-of-the-art kitchen at your fingertips. Fully licensed and insured mobile kitchens typically include the following and many more features:

  • Walk-in refrigerator and freezer
  • Six-burner stove
  • Standard and convection ovens
  • Prep area and sink
  • Ventilation
  • Fire protection systems

2. Choose an Inspiring Venue

Whether you’re organizing a wedding or a book launch, you can make the event unforgettable by choosing to host it at an inspiring venue. For many event planners, an indoor-outdoor location can make all the difference to guests. Allowing guests to leave the main dining or dance area, for example, and enjoy a veranda, garden or lake view, gives them the gift of natural beauty and fresh air, which adds to their overall enjoyment.

3. Create the Appropriate Ambiance

Lighting is your secret weapon for creating the appropriate ambiance. For any romantic events such as weddings and vow renewals, soft, twinkly lighting promotes the theme and tender feelings. Also, gentle, romantic music furthers the theme as long as it doesn’t overwhelm the proceedings and conversation.

If you’re planning a company event, make it unforgettable by incorporating the company colors in the lighting and table settings or capturing spotlight moments in a projected slideshow with music. In addition, practical logoed party favors can make a thoughtful addition to the event.
