The season is almost here! Holidays are right around the corner and without fail the stress is not far behind. I am a terrible party planner, I love to host but I am no good at the execution. I love to have people over but don’t really have the time to do the prep and take care of the details. The other piece of entertaining that I am often frustrated with is not feeling like I can spend time with my guest, I want to make sure that everyone is having fun, food plates are full, drinks are topped off and that I am somewhat staying on top of the clean up so I don’t spend hours on end after the party cleaning up.
Last month we had a small party for my son’s Bar Mitzvah and all of my party planning inadequacies came rushing in, I wanted to be able to enjoy myself but I also wanted to make sure everything ran smoothly for my guest.
What’s the solution? Help! I didn’t need a full event planning service, just day of help with setup, overseeing the details and breakdown. Day of help for an event no matter the size can be difficult to find.
Metro’s Other Woman is able to help with any affair no matter the size, from day of help to event planning from start to finish. We hired Metro’s Other Woman to help the evening of my son’s party and it was more that I could have expected. Once they arrived they took over on all of the details, set the tables, laid out the decorations, set up the serving tables and then during the party they helped serve, stayed on top of cleanup and ensured that I didn't have to do anything but enjoy my guest.
Here are some ways that they can help at your next event:
- planning: choose a theme, order/pick up/create decorations, order invitations
- manage RSVP’s - order food/catering and/or pick up & prep food
- keep food and beverages stocked during the party
- snap photos on your camera, so you can relax and enjoy yourself!
- keep garbage controlled
- cut and pass out cake
- party favors: purchase materials and assemble
- post-event clean up
Help is not limited to parties, have a crowd coming for dinner? Thanksgiving? Metro’s Other Woman is a great solution to taking the stress out of your next event! Remember SCMK readers are eligible for special pricing, let them know you’re a SCMK reader when you go to book your service.
