When our client proposed we do a Monopoly Party themed party for her 6 year old son, we got excited! So many ideas flew through my head and we settled for having various stations where the kids had to earn their money or be sent to jail if they were declared bankrupt.

It was apparent that Monopoly was nothing really new to some of them as they approached us demanding to buy properties and scampered off happily with the idea of collecting rent from their friends.

Menard Geosystems chose an Asian Themed night for their annual dinner last month. Guests walked in with traditional costumes and were entertained by Shanghai dancers, a Lion Dance Performance and Mask Changing performance.

Our emcee got them involved playing various games and everyone went home with a fabulous lucky draw prizes.

Winter Wonderland


Make your way under the frosty pillar entrance tunnel and if you peer underneath the icicles hanging down over the exit to this tunnel you will catch a glimpse of a snowy forest ahead of you.
Duck under the icicles and out into the forest ahead. A small path is visible through the trees, so follow this through, following the small pools of light shining from traditional street lamps, which lead the way through to the venue of the evening’s party.

The effect is completed with intelligent lighting flashing around the room.



Monopoly Party

This is a great theme for Monopoly lovers and those who just enjoy collecting money and buying property. We have a junior version which is ideal for those aged 5 to 10 and a senior version for 18 year old and above. We cater to both private and corporate functions.

Guests will have to earn their money through various activities and take part in property auctions.

Monopoly tokens will be placed around the room adding to the atmosphere.

Establish the Basics

Organization is key to make hosting a breeze. There are six questions to answer to get started: What is the date? How many guests will be there? Where is the location? What type of party will it be? What is your budget? Is there going to be music or entertainment?


The Date

Sending invitations is not necessary for informal parties. A simple telephone call several weeks in advance is sufficient. For formal affairs, invitations can be sent out three to four weeks in advance, or even earlier for very important events. If you are sending invitations, be sure to include an R.S.V.P. And don't hesitate to call people for responses -- not knowing how to calculate quantities for an event is a sure cause of nervousness. It's safe to say that 20-30% of the total number of guests invited won't turn up so you can gauge how much food to order or prepare.

The Guest List


It could be a group of people you like; it may be professionals you need to entertain. Be strict about the size that fits your space and try to find an idiosyncratic mix of people who would make an interesting ensemble.


Location

Evaluate your space like a critic -- don't excuse a small oven or single bathroom -- and don't exceed the space and equipment you have. If guests will be standing, the average-size room can generally accommodate 30 people, a three-room expansive about 60. For any form of buffet, you must provide seating. Consider renting a place or equipment if your home isn't equipped to handle the party you want. Think outside the box -- a restaurant or art gallery could provide an interesting edge to your party.


Cocktails or Dinner?


Why you are throwing the party -- a birthday, for fun --will help set the date and size. Add to that your location, budget, and equipment to determine the type. Cocktail parties are the least expensive and most versatile. For a sit-down meal, you must have (or rent) dishes, flatware, glassware, linens, seating, and serving pieces. A buffet is almost as versatile as a cocktail party, and the size and price can be tailored to your budget.

Your Budget

Consider liquor, food, rentals, service, music or entertainment, and flowers or decorations to establish your initial budget. Think drinks first, as alcohol can be a major expense. Don't feel as though you need to be as well stocked as a restaurant; consider serving a signature drink. Be inventive with your food choices to limit costs -- instead of fillet of beef, have a Mexican fiesta.

Music and Entertainment

Music can make or break a party but doesn't have to be complicated at all. Match your selection to your budget and style. For simpler affairs, it is generally there for background support. Hook your iPod up to speakers and create a specific playlist. For more theatrical parties, consider live music. Student musicians are a good source for quality and affordable entertainment. If it is for dancing, choices range from a rented jukebox to a hired disk jockey through neighborhood rock groups or an expensive and established swing band.

Putting It All Together


Once you have answers to these questions, the framework for your party is in place --the time, place, and style have been established. Now use this information to figure out the details. The type of party will dictate what you need for equipment, the season can inspire the menu, and the budget will factor into the type of entertainment you choose and if you use a caterer. Outside of that, be creative and tailor a party you would want to attend.

To create this illuminating centerpiece, place a glass vase inside another that is slightly larger (secure them with floral adhesive), and then pour tinted water in between them. Pillar candles are best for this project; not only are they pretty, but their weight will further anchor the interior vase. For added light play, make a series of these centerpieces in different shades of the same hue (a few extra drops of food coloring will yield the desired contrast).



This series of leaves runs the length of a table set for dinner, proving that a centerpiece need not be restricted to what the name implies: a single piece placed in the center of the table. Cuttings from houseplants, leaves from the florist, and trimmings from backyard ferns and shrubs -- each in a little bottle -- form a dramatic table decoration.


Flowers and candlelight are nothing new, but together they create tabletop decorations fit for relaxed summer entertaining. Place votive candles in tall glass vessels, and attach a flower (dahlias are shown here) outside each, trimming the stem to fit and tying with raffia that matches the flower. Set each display in a saucer of water to keep the flowers fresh.
