here does the time go? No sooner do we stop reminiscing about last year’s
fabulous Christmas party, than it’s time to start planning for the next.
Contrary to the Rolling Stones’ ballad, time is not always on your
side, especially when you realise how much actually goes into the
planning and organising of any type of event or function. But fear not, faithful
facilitators – help is here. And plenty of it!
Whether you’re arranging a team-building corporate event, a lavish wedding,
or an intimate birthday celebration, Scoop Functions & Venues has your back, with
everything from spectacular settings to superb caterers ready to tickle your tastebuds.
After all, party planning is not everyone’s cup of tea (or glass of bubbles).
This is where enlisting the services of a professional event planner can save the day.
However, if – like me – you are a control freak and enjoy the thrill of the challenge,
turn to Perfect Party Planning on p20 for helpful tips on getting started. And on the pages
following, you’ll discover a world of party professionals, all of whom are ready to help
you create an event extravaganza.
Perth has certainly seen an explosion of new bars and venues emerge over the past
year, and this poses yet another conundrum for the function planner – do you go with
the well-respected, established option or should you try somewhere new? Hopefully this
issue, with its dozens of venue profiles, will make choosing a little easier.
However you envisage your shindig, there’s one thing that should never be overlooked
quality. Guests may ignore a tablecloth that only has a thread count of 75, but they will
never forget the freshest oysters they’ve ever tasted.
Spend your budget wisely and remember that what you personally enjoy at an
event will be, more often than not, the very things that your guests will also appreciate.
And for some light-hearted cautionary tales, check out Function Flops and Fails on p250,
a collection of anecdotes about event mishaps.
Whatever the occasion, we hope you enjoy this stunning guide to functions and
venues throughout WA, and find it helpf ul. And for even more information, we invite you
to visit our online Functions & Venues directory at scoop.com.au .
