Live Music or a DJ service is essential. Experienced musicians and DJs generally feel the audience and keep the dance floor packed. If you plan a themed party, choose the corresponding band or discuss the track list to be in line with the desired theme. Whatever theme you choose, it would be great to further support it with decorations and props, hats, glasses or wigs, which make everyone take more and more pictures. A selfie mirror or a photo booth gives advanced opportunities for saving and sharing photos.
If a large party is assembling and people do not know each other well, consider hiring a close-up magician or a caricaturist, or perhaps, a silhouettist. They communicate unobtrusively with different groups of guests, showing magic tricks or doing sketches, acting as great icebreakers, and making everyone feel relaxed and at ease. If the party is for the children, don't forget to invite Father Christmas or Santa to visit!
Share the details of the oncoming party with the Connections team. Depending on the number of guests, the venue and your budget the team will be happy to recommend the types of entertainment that will best suit your purposes and help with deliveries and decoration if you need them. Anything to take the burden off you and make your guests remember the party for months to come.
