Many of your former class mates will have moved far away, or will have families and other heavy commitments! For these reasons I would give as much notice possible for your party. Even an entire year is not uncommon for high school reunion parties.
There could be problems, though. Unlike the standard portable toilets, the luxury ones requite both water and drainage, as well as electricity, and that could mean you end up having to put them in a place that’s not ideal. What can you do about that? You can throw up your hands and give in, or you can deal with a company whose luxury portable toilets come with built-in water and drainage tanks, giving you the chance to site them where you need them. All you’ll need to come up with then is a generator for the electricity, and that’s easy to obtain; if you deal with the right firm, they’ll have them available for a fee.
Is the company an actual Caterer? (Not just a bakery or cafe). There is after all a lot more to catering than simply the food, so you need to select a Caterer who is familiar with all aspects of event catering.
When you are the event organizer, there are a lot of things for you to handle. Sometimes, food catering can be the least priority of all tasks. A professional catering service can be very helpful for you as it takes some of the stress off you during the event. The caterer will take charge of everything, from preparation of food and drink to clearing up of the food reception area.
Portable Heaters. For outdoor events, these are a must have. While the night descends into cold temperatures, you can keep guests warm and comfy with outdoor heaters. Ask your event hire if they have mushroom heaters, area heaters, or PatioPal heaters. All these types can be used inside marquee tents and are great for any type of party. Simply enquire on their specifications so you can choose which one suits the venue most.
Or picture this.the dessert has just been served and in walks “Lt. Columbo,” complete with overcoat and cigar.”Oh, excuse me,” he says, “I was looking for somebody else.” All eyes are riveted on this familiar figure as he turns and starts to walk out. “Oh, one more thing, is this the Walker party?’ Then for the next 30 minutes or so he does a comedy routine in the style and delivery of Peter Falk as Lt. Columbo, using names of people in your group.
Hire a photographer for the entrance of your venue. You could have a red carpet running up also with a fancy backdrop where your guests can be photographed with their partners. You could create a compilation DVD after the party with past and present photos of your former class mates.
