Planning an event may seem overwhelming when your primary focus is your launch. Luckily, we’ve got your back. We’ve broken down the top tips for planning the perfect extravaganza. Let’s get into it!
Party Planning for Your Business Launch
This is your launch party. Meaning you can go as fancy or as casual as you’d like. Get creative and throw an event that reflects your new business. Party planning can be easy with a solid plan!
Firstly, think about what you’re launching. What kind of business is it? Is it a clothing company, a new app, skincare, or a food truck? Whatever it may be, honor your new business by making it the theme of your launch party. You’ve spent much time on this business, so it deserves to be the star of the show.
You’ll also want to plan your event smartly. If you’ve never planned an event, don’t worry. Be sure to follow these tips for event planning:
- Draw up a budget
- Write a desire list
- Pick a date
- Set your plan into motion
- Send out invitations
- Evaluate your event afterward
Party planning is doable on your own. But if you’re looking for extra help, hire an event planner. They are masterful organizers with creative flair who can handle the details and bring your vision to life.
Need-to-Know Party Planning Ideas
Formal or informal, there are many ways to host a launch party. Here are our top party planning ideas to keep things fun and memorable during your new business launch:
Entertainment enhances events while keeping guests occupied. Plus, it keeps people lingering long enough to engage with your new business.
There are many options for different kinds of entertainment – solo musicians, jazz bands, magicians, tarot card readers, and DJs. Whatever your choice, make sure your entertainment complements your new business.
Curate a Menu
With a more informal gathering, a potluck keeps things intimate and unique. For something more formal, opt for catering or a buffet. Include bite-sized, easy-to-eat appetizers and an elixir bar to keep things unique. Don’t forget to include desserts to satisfy the sweet tooths in the room!
Incorporate an event theme that plays off of your business. Choose a color palette and be bold! Innovative decorations are a great way to make sure people remember your business.
Pro tip: if your business already has strong branding, use it as inspiration.
Who doesn’t love being sent home with a goodie bag? Send your guests home with product samples from your business and other items that are on brand. Some fun options include seeds from a local farm, chocolates, stationery, business cards, and a customized tote bag.
Pick a Venue
Venues play a big part in making your big day shine. They control the atmosphere and overall vibe of a party. Are you going for an elegant corporate ambiance? Or do you want to strive for a boho-chic aura? Whatever it may be, choose a venue that will hold the right amount of people. Make sure they’re reliable, so you don’t need to worry about mishaps during your launch party!
