Are you interested in saving money when renting a party space rental? Read on if you are.
The 2000’s and 2010’s are the decades when the DIY, or Do It Yourself movement, really gained momentum. People discovered they are actually quite capable of doing things they never dreamed of doing, and they were energized by the need to save money in a tight economic climate.
Small businesses, home-based businesses, sprang up all over the country. People turned their backyards into money-making mini-urban farms and sold the produce for profits. People began doing their own car repair, thanks to the flood of YouTube videos catering to DIY car repair. The same thing happened with home repairs. It turned out that the Can-Do Spirit was alive and well in Americans.
That same spirit can save you money when renting a party space rental, and that is what we will talk about in this article. We are Tarrant Events Center, serving the fine people of Fort Worth, Texas, and we embrace the DIY movement with our “bare bones” party room rental. Call us at 817-996-3636 for more information about Tarrant Events Center.
Now, though, let’s talk about you saving money on your next party venue rental. Here are a few ways for you to save money be taking the proverbial bull by the horns.
DIY food preparation
Why pay a caterer for your party when you can do the food preparation yourself? Save, literally, hundreds of dollars by either cooking the food yourself or having trusted friends and family members do it. Find a party room rental which has a finishing kitchen, like Tarrant Events Center, and prepare the food in that kitchen, or prepare it at home and keep it refrigerated in the finishing kitchen until it is time to serve.
And please, don’t pay for servers. That’s what family and friends are for. When the going gets tough, family and friends step forward.
A professional decorating company will cost you additional hundreds of dollars. Again, you can do this! Buy decorations at a discount party store, and decorate the event venue yourself. And if the event center has as stipulation which prevents you from doing this, find another event venue.
Our apologies in advance to professional musicians or magicians or other performers, but they are expensive to hire. Surely, among your many friends, you can find someone who can play background music. One great resource for less-expensive entertainment is your local junior college or local performing arts school.
Get creative and save money!
DIY set up and take down
Some event centers require that you pay their employees to set-up and take-down your event. We do not at Tarrant Events Center, and we think it would be a waste of money for you to sign such an agreement. Gather enough friends together and you can set up and take down an event in a matter of an hour or so, and in so doing you will save money.
Shop carefully for a party space rental. There are many out there, which means competition, and competition means you have negotiating power. Begin your search for a party space rental a full year in advance, and find one, like Tarrant Events Center, which gives you the freedom you need to make your party affordable.
