Hosting an event can be stressful and time-consuming. A lot of time and effort needs to be spent on preparing the location, food, drinks, decorations, and music. And that’s just what needs to be done ahead of time! On the night itself, the host or hostess needs to ensure that their guests have plenty to eat and that their drinks are regularly refilled. In fact, sometimes the guest of honour will find themselves so preoccupied with keeping their guests happy that they spend the entire evening fussing over others and forget to have fun or enjoy themselves.
If you don’t want that to be the reality for your next event, then you might want to consider hiring a private function room. Not only can it take out a lot of the stress on the evening, it can also make the entire process of planning an event less daunting. Still need some convincing? Here is a list of 5 benefits to hiring a private function room…
1. Get the VIP treatment
There is no shortage of reasons why you might choose to host an event. You might be celebrating a birthday, engagement, or graduation? Perhaps you and a team of colleagues are celebrating a work achievement or the fact that you recently received a promotion?
Special occasions are meant to be enjoyed by all, but most especially by the person being celebrated. Hosting parties at your home can be stressful because you have to balance greeting guests, replenishing drinks, controlling music, and being the guest of honour. Of course you want your event to be a success – but why should that success come at the expense of your own enjoyment? When you hire a private function room, you can trust that all of those things will be taken care of for you; all you need to do is show up and take your coat off!
2. No need to cook or tend bar
Food and drink are an incredibly important aspect of any event. Even if the evening isn’t a dedicated sit-down dinner, you will need to ensure that some sort of food is readily available to your guests – especially if alcohol is being served.
For some of us cooking is a thing of passion; but for the rest of us, it is somewhat of a chore. Yet, regardless of whether you relish the opportunity to whip out the old apron and experiment with flavours, or struggle to even make toast, you probably don’t want the entirety of your event to be spent running in and out of a kitchen. Cooking food or making cocktails for an event will require you to spend a lot of money on ingredients, and spend a lot of time preparing those ingredients. You’ll then need to juggle refilling peoples’ drinks and serving food at regular intervals, which could be incredibly disruptive to your evening. Catering to a range of peoples’ specific tastes and diet requirements can be difficult, even for professional cooks and caterers (but luckily for them, they don’t also have to be the host of the event).
If you hire a private function room within an established restaurant or bar, you can rest assured that you and your guests will have access to delicious food and drinks throughout the course of the evening, without it adding unnecessarily to your stress levels.
3. Save time decorating
With the popularisation of Pinterest, a lot of people now fancy themselves an interior decorator extraordinaire. Of course, while it might be tempting to turn your home into the world’s best function venue, it could also be very expensive; and it’s not necessarily a feasible option for most people.
Private function rooms come pre-decorated. While you might still have inspiration for colour schemes and finishing touches, you don’t need to fritter away money on single-use decorations that will only end up adding to the amount of unnecessary clutter in your home.
4. Guaranteed atmosphere
While restaurants and bars attract customers largely based on the quality of the food and drink that they serve, there is certainly something to be said for atmosphere. If it weren’t for the atmosphere present in most restaurants and bars, the majority of people might simply prefer to buy a bottle of their favourite red (which would presumably be cheaper from a dedicated wine store) and enjoy it from the comfort of their own home.
When you hire a private function room at your favourite local, that room is guaranteed to add character and ambience to the overall mood of the evening. That way, you don’t need to worry about mundane things such as lighting, music, or mood – you can just worry about enjoying that glass of Burgundy.
5. No dirty dishes to deal with
If this isn’t a selling point for private function rooms, then nothing is! No-one can contest or deny the fact that cleaning up is the least enjoyable aspect of hosting an event at your home. The question “who is hosting this year’s family Christmas?” frequently turns into a game of hot potato; with each person reluctant to have their house overrun by dirty dishes, empty bottles, and shreds of wrapping paper. If cleaning isn’t your favourite pastime, why not hire a private function room? That way, you can rest assured that you’re not going to be the one on dishes duty.
If you’re planning an upcoming celebration, you probably have a lot of items on your to-do list. Do yourself a favour and tick a handful of them off all at once by hiring a private function room.
