It's the little things that count when it comes to
putting the finishing touches on your event.
If you want to make a real impact at your next
function, it's the little extras that will make all the
difference. Use your imagination to consider how
you can make your guests feel a bit special.
We can all throw together a drinks party, but
how many of us can make sure our guests can get a
steaming hot macchiato at the end of the evening?
Most of us can rattle up a cup of tea or instant coffee
during the morning break at a company seminar, but
how many of us might think of getting in a platter of
intricately decorated corporate-themed cupcakes
too? It's the little touches you select that show you
have taste and flair but also a great imagination or a
sense of fun... and also that you really want to look
after your guests.
There is a fantastic range of operators in WA,
ready to provide some special touches to make your
next event truly memorable.
For just a few dollars each, individual cupcakes
can be handmade to suit the colour or theme of any
event and will form a spectacular centrepiece at an
afternoon tea or lunch party?
Beautifully decorated cupcakes come in a couple
of sizes to suit your needs. Cupcakes and petit fours
can be made to order with just 24 hours' notice and
there's no minimum to buy. One of the best things
about cupcakes is that they come ready in individual
servings and require neither a willing person with a
knife to divide them up, nor plates to serve them on.
Of course, larger cakes for special occasions can also
be arranged, though booking a week ahead is recom-
mended. Many places offer both telephone or online
booking services, making ordering a piece of cake... a
piece of cake!
And to go with the cake, what could be better
than a freshly roasted coffee delivered straight to your
event or workplace? Who doesn't love the aroma of
real espresso coffee? And what better way to enjoy it
than to have it come to you?
Mobile coffee vans can fit into a standard car bay
and are staffed by a fully trained barista. While each
van has its own power and water facilities, operators
can hook up to an onsite electricity supply and turn
their engines off if noise is a problem.
Coffee vans serve sports days, functions and
events all over Perth and if you book ahead, a mobile
cafe can come to you any time of the day, or night. If
you're planning a larger function, it is recommended
that you give up to a month's notice to ensure that the
van has plenty of stock. For most occasions, coffee
vans have no call-out fee or hourly rate -- you just pay
for the coffee you buy, with prices equivalent to your
Having beautiful flower arrangements delivered
straight to you takes the hassle out of choosing deco-
rations and there is nothing like fresh flowers to set
the mood or reflect a theme.
Professional florists will help select arrangements
to suit the venue, theme and budget of your event
and, if you don't know what's "in", they will let you
know about the latest trends or what's in season.
For most florists, there's no order too big or small,
though it's best to book no less than a month ahead
of time. Depending on the time or location of your
event, a small transport fee may be placed on orders
to cover delivery costs.
Do something out of the ordinary, make an impact
on your guests and add a few special finishing touch-
es to turn a good event into a truly exceptional one.
