Essential Tips for Successful Event Planning 

One of the critical things you can do to ensure your event or party goes seamlessly is to start at the very beginning and make a plan. There are too many elements of all kinds to remember them all, and it would be an unmitigated disaster to forget something crucial like the table and chair hire in Perth. The Overarching categories in your event planning checklist might include: 

  • Marquee 
  • Tables and chairs
  • Tableware
  • Entertainment
  • Catering and bar
  • Drinks

These can be broken into ever-smaller pieces and dissected, but start with the basics and work from there. Check off each element once you are satisfied it has been successfully handled. Don’t be afraid to contact the event guide team here at Swan Event Hire to discuss any aspect of your event, from crockery hire in Perth to the other essentials of any successful celebration. 

Party Planning Ideas for a Memorable Celebration

Here are some tips and recommendations you may not have added to your event planning checklist:


If you have options, choose a venue that reflects your taste and the night's theme. Remember to account for the number of guests you expect to attend. Don’t be afraid to use the ‘wow’ factor of venues with sensational views, waterfront locations, or otherwise impressive features. 


Whether formal or casual, no matter the age range of your guests, a well-chosen theme can start a party off on the right foot and give a sense of cohesion from the word go. From simple choices like colours to the most outlandish ideas you can think of. Use your imagination or seek party planning ideas, decorate the venue to match, and start the sense of fun early.


A good DJ is something every party or event needs, as the easiest way to get people to let their hair down is with music, a dance floor, and some disco lights. Surprise elements like magicians or other floor performers are a great way to liven up the atmosphere that most people will not expect. Other elements to consider include:

  • Cake
  • Photo Booth
  • Games
