How to host a successful cocktail

Mingling with friends over a couple of drinks is one of the loveliest ways to relax and let go of the day and the worries that come with it. If getting together means hosting your own cocktail event, it can be quite a daunting task. However, if you plan a little ahead, it can be a lot of fun. The key to enjoying your own cocktail party is to delegate and sit back and enjoy the event as much as the guests.

Factory 51 Cocktail events  are a great way to host a party without the stress of making arrangement. These events include cocktail events, birthday parties, social functions, engagement parties and charity events.The room is blessed with rustic red brick walls, polished concrete floors, exposed steel beams, a giant crystal chandelier and a private entrance. The room also boasts a private marble bar and laneway alfresco area.


Start by taking a call on how you want the event to be. Casual, formal or themed. Other options will follow what you decide. Weigh the pros and cons of what you decide and inform the management well in advance. If there is a theme you would like, then decorations and layout will need to maintain the theme. Similarly the same needs to be mentioned in the invite. Keep in mind that the invites need to go out well on time, so the kind of event you want to host, needs full prior consideration and consultation with the person handling the event. A creative theme can make your party feel special without adding to your budget, and it will help you come up with ideas for food, drinks, and decorations.


Decide on the drinks and snacks you would like to serve. Some options are practically possible and some that look easy may be difficult to provide. Keep a good list ready with you, so that if a particular item cannot be served, you have an alternate to suggest to the person handling the event. Decide on the number of snacks that you want served, and also the frequency of serving. When it comes to drinks, serve the standard drinks and make sure you and the bartender are on the same page, when it comes to fixing cocktails. There are some basic cocktail mixes  that should be available if required. Food and drinks are the life of a party and make sure the ones you serve are easy to eat without being messy. Keep the occasion in  mind when you select the food.

Some ways of attracting attention to your product

Selling is easy if you know the value a product provides for it’s customers. If customers do not see value in something, they will not avail it, be it a product or a service. Getting the message across is very important if you want your business and products to surge ahead. There are a number of marketing strategies, not all are possible, but a few should be incorporated, so you get the right customers. The  most important is to work on getting the word out. If you have customers or have and still require more, then people need to hear about your product. In today’s digital world digital signage is the best way to reach a large number of people. FM Digital Group LED Signs  are a leading provider of digital signage and display solutions in Australia, and provide LCD, OLED, and LED digital signage products ranging from tablets, touch screens, way finding kiosks, menu boards, LED retail displays, LED window signage, corporate signage, rental displays, foldable screens, and transparent displays.

Signage works if it is targeted at the right people. These right people are your potential customers, the ones who have a need for your product, because they are the ones who are going to buy it. So identify the kind of person who has a need for the service the product provides. You do not need a long list of things your product can do. Identify the one or two key benefits and your marketing works.

Understand who you are as a company and project the same in your marketing message. As a company, do you strive to enrich the lives of others, to make others lives better? Make sure your marketing message echoes your company beliefs.

Promote your product on social media . Don’t be everywhere. Start with one or two platforms, see the response and your interaction capability. There is no point of being on a platform and just putting up mandatory requisites. Social media is an alternate to word of mouth networking, so use it as you would use good old fashioned networking to connect and to reach out. Take on as much as you can genuinely handle. Also check the audience. Are you in the right place. Does your network connect with what you serve? If it does not, then look elsewhere. You maybe serving a cake to people who really want bread and butter.
