it is that time of year again. Time to pull the inflatable decorations out of the garage or attic and adorn your lawn with some holiday spirit. Here at Executive Events & Entertainment we love anything inflatable. Normally we offer bouncer, obstacle courses, slides, and much more but we support anyone who wants to join the inflatable party and display some creepy Halloween Inflates. Check out the following slideshow for some of the crazier Halloween inflatable decorations we have come across. 

What's Your Opinion?

We love hearing from everyone! What is your opinion regarding inflatable decorations? Are they gaudy and unnecessary or an awesome adornment of holiday spirit?

Ever consider building a website for your party? The classic method of informing people about your event was to send out paper invitations. This method evolved to send out electronic invitations. Well it is high time for another evolutionary step. With the advent of social media it has become easier than ever to get the word out about your party. Our suggestion, build a website for your party! Follow the brief tutorial below to see how you can setup your own party site.

The Cost

Picture
It is no secret that it costs a little money to start a website. On average a website can be made and maintained for under $20.00. The primary cost is the web hosting service (we suggest Bluehost.com as a host). You can use a free, easy to use, website builder like Wix or Weebly to actually construct the visual elements of your site. Be sure to include the date/time of the party, food options available, and be sure to mention any fun items you will be having like laser tag, bouncers, Fun Foods, or carnival games. The best part of all, you can use the website year after year for different parties!

Get the Word Out

Picture
Get the word out about your party. Link your new website to facebook so all of your friends will be able to visit the site. You can even use a free service like mailchimp to start an emailing list regarding your party. Keep all your guests up to date with party changes via colorful emails you design yourself. Having a website and facebook page for your party will ensure that all your guests are informed and it will save you the hand cramps from writing out all those invitations.

Recap

For a successful party in the digital age follow these general guidelines:
  1. Buy a website URL (example: www.myparty.com) We suggest using an inexpensive web hosting service like Bluehost
  2. Build your site, construct the visual elements of your site using a free easy to use builder like Wix or Weebly.
  3. Be sure to include all the important info on your site like date, time, and location of the party.
  4. Setup an email list for your party guests so they can stay informed on the status of the party (optional)
  5. Use social media like facebook and twitter to get your website URL our there.
  6. Be sure to relax! Parties are supposed to be fun.

When renting an inflatable you may ask yourself, is there anything else to keep the kids not in the bouncer busy? Well, there is! Here are a few ideas featuring some of the awesome carnival and other items that you can throw onto your order for very little extra money. Carnival Games, Fun Foods, and some smaller inflates are perfect as add on items.  Check out the list below and browse our site for all the extra party options.

Funfoods

Picture
Keep your guests busy by offering some awesome fun food. Fun food like popcorn, cotton candy, sno cones, funnel cakes, soft pretzels, and more, gives your guests something to eat as well as keeping pressure off of the bouncer. Essentially the goal is to have your guests spread out throughout your party and interact. Fun foods provide a perfect opportunity mingling.  Check out our complete but not exhaustive list of fun foods here.

Carnival Games

Picture
Games are another way to get guests interacting. Bakcyard games like cornhole or horseshoes stimulates interaction by the conduction of a team themed game. Carnival games also have the added benefit of being usable to the adults. Some adults do not want to ride on bouncers and other inflatables so providing them with some carnival games will keep them included. Plan your party so that everyone will have fun!

Inflatable Games
