vintage entertainer serving foodAwesome entertainment for parties is the icing on top of an already delicious cake. The right party entertainers make kids giggle, draws a crowd to the dance floor, and is the topic of discussion for days to come. It’s up to you to choose the right entertainment that makes all that happen!

Choosing Party Entertainment

The right party entertainment fits with all the other elements of the event. Party entertainment can be one entertainer or a combination of games and entertainment that fits the target guest demographic and desired event atmosphere.

The easiest way to choose from all of the party entertainment ideas is to select a theme. This narrows down the options for party décor, menu items, and entertainment. A vintage theme includes the right era décor, menu, music, and entertainers that look like they stepped out of a time machine (perfect for a throwback birthday party!) A nautical party is the perfect way to honor a boating enthusiast and surprise him or her with one-of-a-kind entertainers that guests want to take selfies with. A country picnic theme comes alive with the right yard games, food servers, and musical entertainers.

Once you have chosen the right entertainment, it’s time to secure, produce, and hire the right entertainment. If you are handling booking the party entertainment on your own, always research entertainers and companies and review the entertainer’s and rental company contract closely for fine print. (The other option is to contact an entertainment agent who can choose and coordinate every detail of the party entertainment.)
