Using Volunteers to Staff Your Event: Some Things To Be Aware Of

Finding volunteers to staff your event may sound like the perfect way to keep that event budget under control while still making sure everything is safe for your guests. There are many great organizations out there who are looking to provide community service by volunteering at events just like yours. They are a great resource to call upon when you just need a little man-power. But volunteers can also cause many headaches that you, as an event organizer or promoter, need to be aware and on top of. We work with volunteers all the time with many of the events we do. Here are a few tips to help you overcome the hurdles that come up when staffing your event with volunteers.

School's Out For Summer

With school fast coming to a close for another year, you may be wondering…what do I do with all of these kids?!?

Hi-De-Ho There, Good Neighbor!

One of the best things about the Treasure Valley is the good, strong neighborhoods full of people who genuinely like each other and enjoy spending time together. Summer is a great time to get outside our houses and get to know neighbors we haven’t met yet, as well as enjoy those we’ve known for years.

Photo Booth Fun

Everyone gets excited when they walk into a party and see it there in the corner… You know what I’m talking about, that wonderful box with curtains that draws you closer and closer, enticing you inside. You grab a prop or two, step inside, press the button, and SNAP! You have the perfect souvenir of the night, a memory you can’t forget because it’s right there in your hands.

Surviving The School Carnival

Spring seems to be the traditional time for school fundraising carnivals.  But how do you make your event stand out when your elementary school has been hosting the same event for a dozen or more years?

iPod vs DJ: What's the Difference?

In this age of technology, everyone has an mp3 player, laptop, or iPod full of music. This is a great convenience, but can be a temptation, too, to rely on a friend with an extensive playlist to provide the music for a wedding or dance you have coming up. It’s a good way to save a few bucks…that is, if your friend won’t complicate matters much more.

Top 5 Tips for Hiring A Wedding Disc Jockey

Planning a wedding can be an extremely stressful prospect. There are just so many details to consider when creating your dream wedding.  Location, flowers, dress, cake, guest lists, photographs, music…  The options are endless.  A simple internet search can send your mind reeling into overload.  Anything you can do to simplify the process will save you headaches and possible heartaches on your special day.  Here are a few tips about finding the RIGHT disc jockey to play music at your ceremony and reception.

Resolve To Have More Fun

This time of year we hear all about New Year's resolutions. People resolve to lose weight, to get into better shape, to save money, to plan the trip they’ve wanted for years, and on, and on. But, honestly, how many of us really stick to those resolutions? Unfortunately, those lists are much easier to write than to live by.

Caricature Artist

You want your event to be unique and fun for your guests.  A great and exciting alternative for your event, rather than a photo booth or disposable cameras on the tables, why not have a caricature artist?

Clean Inflatables

As a parent, you want what’s best for your kids. You check ingredient lists, limit their screen time, and make sure they are as safe as possible when they’re not with you.  We’re parents, so we understand that perfectly.  But why would you compromise when renting an inflatable for their birthday or other celebration?
