Safety Tips For House Parties

Partying at your own home provides peace of mind that you don’t have to go out of your comfort zone to socialize. But in doing so, you are inviting other people into your comfort zone and it does make you vulnerable. Here are some tips on how to stay safe when throwing parties at home. 

If you’re having an intimate party with just a few of your friends, then you should only worry about the safety of your guests. 

With a few friends

  • Get your electrical cords out of the way. Avoid people tripping from cords (and other items) by putting these in a safe place. 
  • Don’t overload outlets. Have multiple quality extension cords.
  • Make sure drinking water is easily accessible. Same goes for a first aid kit. 
  • Set up a safe place where people can sleep and pass out. It’s not to encourage them but it’s better to assign a room, just in case. If some of your guests can’t drive home and they can’t arrange a ride, you can have them sleepover in the designated room. 
  • Additionally, have a secure place for guests with valuable belongings like car keys and wallets. 
  • Secure and shut off your stovetops tight. A drunk person could try to cook and suddenly cause a fire. 
  • If you’re going to be grilling, if possible, do this outdoors. 

 

With many guests

But if you’re hosting quite a large number of people, with mere acquaintances attending, it’s best to keep yourself, and everyone else, safe. 

Since you own the house where the party is held, set some ground rules and make sure party attendees are aware of them. Keep yourself safe by assigning some friends to help you keep the peace. 

  • Ask friends to help identify party crashers. These people might not just be there for the food and booze. You don’t want to risk them taking your valuable stuff.
  • If it’s going to be a huge party, it’s better to have a single entrance so you can see who and what goes in and out. 
  • Try to stay sober. No matter how fun the party is, staying sober means you could check on your friends as well as make sure everything is under control. 
  • Secure Children and pets in a safe place so they don’t accidentally ingest dangerous food or liquid.

How to Handle Wedding Guest Problems

How to Handle Wedding Guest Problems

How to Handle Wedding Guest Problems

Wedding plans are already hard to manage in the first place, and having to deal with uncooperative guests could bring you too close to your breaking point. There is no need to worry as you can handle wedding guest problems with grace just like with the other items on your wedding planning checklist. Here are some tips:

When unwanted guests get invited…

Most of the time, having unwanted guests is a result of some people inviting themselves. They’ll just announce to the bride and groom-to-be (or the couple’s family) that they’ll be attending. If this happens, what you can do is to not send them a copy of the invitation. If the said guest is persistent, you could make sure that the details of the event don’t reach them at all. Avoid posting anything on social media prior to the event. Should you have to use social media, create a private group chat. You can also assign people to serve as point-of-contact so you don’t have to have too many people on the group chat. 

If in case your parents (or other invited guests) are responsible for inviting the unwanted guests, talk to them about doing the “uninviting” for you. Try to be as calm as possible but be firm that you will not allow the unwanted guests to be at your wedding.

When the uninvited guest still shows up on your wedding day, well, just ignore him or her as much as possible. Don’t let anyone ruin your big day. Deal with the uninvited guest on another day.

When family members and friends are known for their embarrassing behavior…

You probably have relatives who are known for their ill-mannered behavior. And since they are part of the family, you can’t just uninvite them to the occasion. If you’re sure they will cause a scene, you can choose to have an intimate immediate family-only ceremony. To pacify them, what you can do is to just invite them to the reception. You can make up an excuse that you’re working within a budget, or that you did that for their sake as you don’t want them to have to sit still for a long time. 

Additionally, you can also just opt to have 2 separate receptions: one specifically for friends and colleagues, and another for family and relatives. Since your relatives are most likely aware of what to expect from the cheeky members anyway, they would not have as many complaints. These receptions don’t have to be full-blown events either. A simple sitdown meal for both should be enough to pacify them. 

When a guest gets too involved with the decisions…

Some guests like to provide unsolicited advice. And while you can try to ignore them, there are some who like to air out their disappointment when you don’t heed their advice. If this happens and you want to take the high road, just tell them that their advice came a little too late and that the details have already been finalized.

Tips on Hiring Your Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Tips on Hiring Your Wedding Photographer and Videographer

Tips on Hiring Your Wedding Photographer and Videographer

 

Aside from hiring people with their own equipment with which they are familiar with, there is more to choosing wedding videographers and photographers than just their rates. 

  1. Decide if you want both a photographer and a videographer.

This decision can help you save money, as you can choose to spend less if you want just one service anyway. If you decide to have both, you should be looking into people who are great at both. However, since these experts are usually more proficient in one area more than the other, consider hiring two separate professionals for each job. Of course, this would cost more compared to hiring one who’s at least good with both. 

So, if you prefer to have a video you want to re-watch over and over, just go with a great videographer. Their photography skills won’t matter so you can get a better deal. The same goes for a photographer with a great eye with photos but not in shooting videos. 

  1. When choosing a professional, find one with a similar point of view as you and your partner.

While we can’t deny that the pros know more about videos and photos, sometimes pros tend to come up with shots that are too repetitive. You might end up with the same poses as the other hundred couples before you. Make sure your vision as a couple should have some weight in the outcome of the photos and videos. 

Another thing is to consider what type of photos and videos you want. Do you prefer candid photos only? With videos, do you find drone shots too mainstream? Find a professional who can make your vision come to life. Also, even if you’re open to anything, you should look for a videographer or a photographer that’s not only creative, but also has fresh ideas. 

  1. Settle on what the output’s quality should be.

Your wedding happens once in a lifetime — that exact day will only happen once. If the professionals weren’t able to capture the moment of your vows, or if the pictures were blurry, there’s no retake. So making sure you’re hiring actual experts is a must. Check their portfolio and if possible, watch their previous same-day edit videos. Also, make sure the contract is explicit on the guarantees for any mishap.

How To Uninvite Guests to Your Party

Signature Event Rentals - How To Uninvite Guests to Your Party

How To Uninvite Guests to Your Party 

A creepy co-worker got invited to your party. A possible stalker-slash-party-crasher found your party details. You suddenly had a falling out with a friend. People who get on your nerves self-invited themselves to your party. 

There are a lot of possible reasons you might want to un-invite someone to your party. However, as much as you want to tell them to their face that they are not welcome, you feel like there might be some other way to do so. 

Sad to say, but there isn’t really a good way to uninvite someone without hurting their feelings. Most likely they’ll be on to you or have an idea of what’s going on. While it’s best to tell them the truth, it is understandable that you’d want to try to not ruffle any feathers. 

You have three options to deal with this dilemma: to lie, to tell the truth, or to cancel the party. Whatever you choose will have both pros and cons, and it’s a matter of how ready you are in dealing with the consequences of your decision.

Option 1: Tell the truth.

It might strain your relationship with the unwanted person, the truth will set you both free. 

Pros:

  • The unwanted person will have no choice but to accept that he isn’t invited.
  • There is no need to be afraid of a lie backfiring, or a need to come up for more lies. 

Cons:

  • You’ll surely hurt the unwanted person’s feelings. 
  • If it’s a crappy relative, you’d probably never live it down.

Option 2: Lie.

Here’s a sample scenario: If the unwanted person is an acquaintance, claim that a very close friend was suddenly available and that it’s too late to add another seat to the table. You can also claim to be downsizing because too many people are planning to show up and the venue can’t handle it.

Pros:

  • This lessens the blow on the unwanted person’s feelings. 

Cons:

  • Provided that the person-to-be-uninvited bites, it could backfire if he finds out the truth from other people. Say he saw a picture of someone else in social media having fun at your party, or someone invited (who had no idea of the situation) tells him about the party.
  • It is most likely to backfire if the person is inside your inner circle, like a family member in a family gathering or a co-worker in a party among officemates.

Option 3: Cancel or Postpone the party.

Not brave enough to tell the truth but afraid they’ll catch you in a lie? Just cut the problem in its roots. Cancel the party. 

Pros:

  • If you cancel the party, there is no need to deal with the unwanted person.

Cons:

  • It could be a hassle to move the date or to reschedule with your vendors. 
  • The only way postponing would work is if the unwanted person is busy on the new date.
  • Only really possible with small gatherings like a dinner party or a lunch out.

Have Fun Choosing Your Wedding Colors

Have Fun Choosing Your Wedding Colors 

Your wedding colors set the tone and ambience of your wedding day. However, choosing what looks perfect or what fits you and your partner can be quite a chore. If you’re not in the mood to look at a color wheel, here’s some options on how to choose the best one. 

1. Find a few colors that you and your partner likes.

This is the easiest way to choose: by just settling on what colors you and your partner likes. The only thing that you have to watch out for is if your colors don’t complement each other. If you don’t care about rules and like being rebellious, you can go through with them. If not, what you can do is to find another color that complements both colors to somehow bridge them. 

An example is when you’re afraid orange and green can’t go together, just add yellow in the middle to harmonize them. Of course, try to use pastel-ish versions. Try not to use any neons as they are harder to match and put together. 

2. Find colors that fit the season of your wedding day. 

If you can’t decide what colors to choose, use the current season as your inspiration. Getting married on a summer’s day? Try sky blue and sand white, or sea green and salmon color. 

Tying the knot in a winter wedding gives you the opportunity to use rich color combinations like mauve and jade, or magenta and yellow. 

You can turn to vibrant fall colors if you’re getting married during the autumn season. Burnt orange, browns and navy blues can highlight your color motif for your special day. 

Of course, spring colors are just as lovely. This is your chance to use flamboyant color combinations like hot pink and lemon yellow, and get away with it.

Alternatively, you can use what flowers are in season and then choose similar complementary colors.

3. Find colors that look good on you and your spouse-to-be. 

If you’re impartial to whatever looks good and doesn’t really have a preference with colors, just choose colors that look good on both of you. If you’ve not heard of skin undertones, you should look into it. It’s basically that if you have a warm undertone, rich warm colors look good on you while cool colors will make you look pale, and vice versa. 

Choosing your wedding colors doesn’t have to be hard. Don’t be afraid to experiment and mix and match colors. It’s your wedding, after all. Have fun!

6 Things to Consider When Renting a Dance Floor

When planning a party, whether it’s a wedding, birthday, or another celebration, a dance floor is always a great addition. There is nothing like a dance floor to get the energy flowing and the good times rolling.

In this blog post, we are going to discuss things that you should consider when you are renting a dance floor. Will the dance floor fit into your space? Where should you place it? We are going to cover these questions and more.

If you live in Virginia or Washington DC and are interested in renting a dance floor for your next celebration, contact Signature Event Rentals. We carry dance floors, tables, chairs, and more. 

Where Will You Place the Dance Floor?

If you want to have a dance floor at your celebration, one of the first things to consider is where you will put it. You have to consider the size of the venue, whether it’s an inside or outside venue, and how much space is available.

You’ll also want to choose a location that is central to all of your guests. If a few guests begin to dance, others will be more likely to join in. You want a space that can be the center of your gathering so that everyone can watch and enjoy. 

The Lighting of the Dance Floor

Another factor you should consider when renting a dance floor is how you will light it. This may have an impact on where you place it as well. If you have an inside venue, you should place the dance floor under some lights to show it off. If you have an outside venue, you may want to consider renting some lighting as well. 

Does a Dance Floor Fit into the Budget?

A dance floor certainly adds an element of fun to your event, however, you’ll want to make sure that one fits into the budget. Dance floor rentals are usually available in a range of prices depending upon what the floor is made from, the appearance, and size.

The Size of the Dance Floor

Once you have decided where the dance floor will go, one of the other important things to consider is what size dance floor would be best. You want a dance floor that will fit into your space comfortably, but also one that will accommodate the number of guests you have invited. Ordering a large dance floor for only a few quests can make it seem empty while renting a small dance floor for a large number of guests can lead to not enough space. 

How Easy is the Dance Floor to Set Up?

If you are renting a dance floor, make sure you ask the rental company how easy the floor is to set up. You may be able to hire the company to deliver and set up your dance floor, however, most are designed with ease of set up in mind. 

How Many Guests Are Attending

When deciding on a dance floor, whether it is affordable, where to place it, and what size to rent, you’ll have to consider the number of guests that are attending your celebration. If you have a large number of guests, you will want to rent a larger dance floor, which will make the dance floor rental a bit more expensive. 

Having enough room on the dance floor for your guests is essential to everyone having a good time. You don’t want your guests to be waiting in line to dance. On the other side of things, you also don’t want to go overboard on the size of your dance floor. An oversized dance floor will take up space that you could be using for other activities, seating, or even a bar. Choosing the right size dance floor for the number of guests you’ve invited is crucial.

How to Choose the Perfect Chair Rental for Your Wedding

When you’re planning your wedding, you want everything to be perfect right down to the smallest detail. After all, this is your big day, and you want it to be special and memorable. You want everything to be just right. 

A huge part of your wedding planning includes deciding on rentals. Depending upon your chosen venue, you’ll most likely be renting chairs, tables, linens, decor, and even possibly a dance floor and stage. If you can find an event rental company that carries everything, it will make your wedding planning a bit easier. When you are trying to plan the perfect day, the fewer vendors you have to coordinate, the better. 

In today’s blog post, we are going to discuss how to choose the perfect chairs for your wedding day. Continue reading to learn more about wedding rentals and if you are planning your wedding in Virginia or Washington DC, contact Signature Event Rentals for all of your event rental needs.

Determine How Many Chairs You Need

While planning your wedding, most people will have to stay within a certain budget and you’ll have to decide how and where to spend that budget. Determining how many chairs you’ll need will help you decide which rental chairs are the best choice for your wedding and your budget. 

Find an Event Rental Company

When choosing an event rental company, you’ll want to choose one that is in your area, has great reviews, and offers a wide range of rental products. If you find a rental company that offers everything that you need, it is more likely that you will find matching tables, chairs, linens, decor, and more. It is also much easier to work with one company rather than ordering each product from a different vendor. It requires less organizing, planning, and results in less stress if you can find a company like Signature Event Rentals in Virginia that provides an extensive selection of event products and equipment. 

Choose the Design that Fits Your Style and Budget

Once you have figured out how many chairs you’ll need and have found an event rental company, it is time to choose the chairs that will best fit your style and budget. You’ll want to consider how much each chair costs to rent and also how it will fit into the overall aesthetics of your wedding reception. 

You can rent chairs that are simple and economic if that is what your budget calls for and they will certainly get the job done. However, if you have a larger budget, you can choose chairs that will be comfortable, inviting, and add to the ambiance of your wedding reception. You can also rent thrones for the bride and groom so that they will have a distinguished spot to sit.  

Contact Signature Event Rentals

At Signature Event Rentals, we offer a wide variety of rental chairs, tables, linens, decor, and more. Our Chiavari chair, one of our most popular chairs, comes in your choice of four different colors to match any wedding. We also offer throne chairs and couches for the bride and groom to enjoy. 

In addition, we carry a selection of chairs for those working a smaller budget. If you are planning a wedding in Virginia or Washington DC, contact Signature Event Rentals for all of your wedding rental needs from chairs to dance floors to catering equipment. Contact us today to learn more.

How To Clean Up After A Party At Home

How To Clean Up After A Party At Home

Enjoyed last night’s party with friends at your home? Now comes the hard part: the morning-after cleaning. You’d think cleaning up your home after a party is technically easy, but knowing how to clean efficiently and effectively is what’s more important. 

Here are some tips to remember when you have to clean up your home after last night’s party. 

  1. Gather your cleaning materials.

Doing so will avoid you having to rinse off the soap and wipe off each time you need an item. Also, should you need an item, it’s already accessible so you need not have to go looking everywhere for it since it’s already there.

Aside from a pail of water, bleach detergent, and scrub, make sure you have a pair of rubber gloves ready. It is also recommended to prepare a vacuum, stain remover stick and a few garbage bags. 

  1. Check even the unlikely, unusual spots.

Aside from picking up all the litter and leftovers, you have to check all the nooks and crannies of your house for food crumbs, and spilled liquid. While you might think it’s impossible for clutter and garbage to reach a certain area, it wouldn’t hurt to make sure that you get everything covered and cleaned. You wouldn’t want to risk a rat, roach, or ant infestation. 

Don’t forget to look (and clean) under the carpet, between the couch cushions and any other possible surface that a guest might have used. 

  1. Make sure that your bathroom is clean.

If you’ve ever seen a drunk person, you’ll know their aim when peeing deteriorates. Hence, your walls might have fallen victim to an unsolicited shower. Moreover, a guest could have peed on any other surface other than the bowl (you never know). So to be safe, you have to clean everything. Another thing is that most likely, you’ve run out of toilet paper, so don’t forget to restock. 

Bonus: Check your furniture, like wooden tables or any other wooden surface, for water rings, as guests might not have used coasters with their drinks. Additionally, search your carpet for stains that you might not have noticed immediately so that you can spot treat it as soon as possible.

Tips on Planning a Spring Wedding

When we think of a spring wedding, we envision a beautiful light palette of colors. You can feel the light breeze and smell the fresh flowers. Spring weddings can be absolutely stunning and memorable. 

However, springtime can come with some surprises, especially when it comes to the weather. You’ll want to take the time to plan your wedding accordingly so that you can enjoy everything that spring has to offer while avoiding any mishaps from unforeseen circumstances.

If you are planning a spring wedding in Virginia or Washington DC, consider Signature Event Rentals for all of your wedding rental needs. We carry everything from chairs to dance floors to tents. Contact us today to learn more.

Choose Your Venue Wisely

While planning a spring wedding, it can be tempting to choose an outside venue. It’s easy to imagine a perfect spring day but it’s important to remember that spring weather can have its ups and downs. 

Choosing an outside venue can still be an amazing choice for a spring wedding as long as you plan for the possibility of less than clear weather. Ensure that in the event of rain or stormy weather, that you and your guests have a place to go. Choosing to set up a tent to provide shelter can be a great way to have the outside spring wedding that you’ve always wanted without the risk of ruining the cake, gifts, or anyone’s wedding attire. Tents can also help define an outdoor space and look great with the right lighting. 

You also have the choice of an inside venue when planning your spring wedding. Ensure you book your venue as soon as possible seeing as spring weddings are quite popular. 

The best venues for a spring wedding are ones that allow for outdoor and indoor space. They give you the best of both worlds and will ensure that you and your guests are comfortable and dry in case the weather doesn’t cooperate. 

Set a Menu that Speaks to the Season

Springtime is all about renewal. It’s about bright, bold flavors, and food that provides energy for fun springtime activities. When you are choosing the items for your wedding menu, keep the season in mind. You don’t want to weigh down your guests with heavy dishes, but instead give them fuel to dance, mingle, and have fun. 

You can also plan fun spring drinks of both the alcoholic and non-alcoholic variety. Drinks that are refreshing, light, and citrusy are perfect for enjoying in spring. The hors d’oeuvres, dinner, and drink menus can all feature fresh seasonal ingredients to further keep with the theme.

Have a Beautiful Spring-Inspired Cake

The wedding cake is no doubt the centerpiece of the wedding. After the crowd is done commenting on the beauty of the bride and her wedding dress and how perfect the couple looks together, their next observation is the wedding cake. 

You can have the pastry chef create seasonal flowers from frosting and use colors that celebrate the spring season. A spring-inspired wedding cake will easily be the center of attention, after the bride and groom of course.

Use Flowers that Are in Season

Spring means flowers. When you are choosing your wedding decor it’s best to include lots of seasonal springtime flowers. They’ll add a fresh, beautiful look to any venue and lend to a soft, fragrant aroma. 

When you choose to use flowers that are in season for your wedding, not only is your wedding going to be beautiful, but flowers that are in season are actually more budget-friendly than those that are not. 

Choose the Right Decor

When you are planning a spring wedding, ensure that you are choosing decor that fits the theme. If you are choosing light, pastel colors that are often associated with springtime, make sure that your decor adds to the aesthetics. 

Arches are a great addition to spring weddings and can be decorated with spring flowers. Candles can also add a nice light touch to the decor. Choose decor that doesn’t take away from the flowers and overall spring theme, but instead adds to it.
