We all love a good party, but parties take time to plan and organise, and for most of us there just aren’t enough hours in the day. We checked in with Christine Smith-Mann from Eezy Peezy Parties to find out the secrets of throwing a fabulous and stress-free party.
“Planning,” says Christine, “is the key to success. Send out invites and give your guests plenty of notice, and make sure you get definite numbers before the day of the event so you have enough food and drink to offer guests. And, unless you’re a superb (and superbly organised) cook, opt for outside catering to save yourself a lot of stress.”
The Eezy Peezy Parties online platform features all the functions needed to plan a party, from digital e-vites and thank-you cards, to gift registries and, perhaps the most useful service, the web shop offering a huge selection of party supplies. From piñatas to party bags, there are approximately 150 collections for virtually any party theme, and any occasion.
According to Christine, one of the most popular themes for adults is the “decade” themed collections from the 50s through to the 80s, while the kids always love the princesses, rock stars and ninjas. For the less technically inclined customers, or those who prefer to browse the products in person, Eezy Peezy Parties welcomes party hosts to make an appointment to shop in their warehouse in Ap Lei Chau.
And a final tip from Christine: “After all the effort and planning you’ve put into making the party perfect, make sure you relax and enjoy it!”
