Milestone Birthday Party Trends

Thursday, May 5th, 2016 | Filed under: Birthday Party, Milestone Birthday, Milestone Events, Party Planning | author: By Keith Sly,    

MilestoneBirthdayPartyTrendsFor a 30th, 40th, 50th or other milestone birthday, friends and family will often plan a birthday party, perhaps a surprise birthday party for the guest of honor. A milestone birthday party may include just a handful of close family and friends, or it may be a larger-scale celebration with 100+ guests invited. Some families prefer a smaller gathering, and some see this milestone birthday as a great opportunity to gather their loved ones from near and far, which might not happen very often in our busy world.

Another trend is planning a series of parties, perhaps starting with a family-only brunch at a top NJ restaurant brunch, and then hosting a larger dinner in a spectacular NJ ballroom. Some families plan weekend birthday celebrations with multiple events planned.

Any wedding trends and wedding inspirations you gathered can be included in your wedding season, from engagement parties all the way through to parties you’ll host long after you’re married!

How to Plan Your Wedding Entertainment on a Budget

Monday, April 20th, 2015 | Filed under: Party Planning, Wedding Budget, Wedding Entertainment | author: By Keith Sly,    

How to Plan Your Wedding Entertainment on a BudgetFabulous wedding entertainers in New Jersey bring the house down with music choices that keep the dance floor packed for those romantic, swaying slow songs and high-energy dancing hours, spotlight dances and surprise musical performances that make a wedding unforgettable and may even go viral when guests post that amazing song rendition or your choreographed dance to social media.

High-quality wedding entertainment is worth the investment, so while there are ways to plan wedding entertainment on a budget, it’s never advisable to book the cheapest wedding entertainers you find online, nor to ask a friend to be your deejay (unless he’s one of the best deejays in the tri-state area as a profession.) Cutting corners on your wedding entertainment is one of those mistakes we don’t want you to make, since cheap wedding entertainment almost always results in wedding nightmares, wedding regrets, and an empty dance floor.
