How do you get a GREAT party no matter what?

Every one deserves a great day to celebrate being alive… if just for making it through the day to day of family life.  It is good for the soul to matter. Parties and celebrations remind us that.  No matter what is going on, it enables us feel all the best parts of being alive and appreciate this thing we have anew.
 I’ve never met a family who has had a smooth and easy journey through years of raising a child or children.  Even loving them to pieces they sometimes bring us to pieces.  And then we regroup and find a new piece of joy, until they take the next peace, and we learn patience and new found understanding for our own parents.  It’s the cycle.  It reminds us we can handle more than we think.
 
I can appreciate this more now that I have two little ones. Each day holds a different adventure.  So when it comes to a bar or bat mitzvah or wedding, a birthday or anniversary party, I fully appreciate and want nothing less than to create the GREATEST day or night that they can remember or will ever remember.

With this as our sole and focused intention and attention, there is nothing and I mean nothing that is going to get in the way of our making this happen. And that is the 1st part of how you get a great party no matter what. 
The second part is having a team of people who can make the 1st part happen.
As our hostess would attest to at our last mitzvah there were many, many issues and obstacles in the way.  As these issues intensified and spilled over into every aspect of their party, from venue, catering, decor, and of course entertainment, everyone got wet from the overflow.  Behind the scenes the tension was frustrating for the professionals who knew that if the hostess could somehow just take care of the basics, everything else would be well taken care of.
 
In the movie “Shakespeare in Love” Geoffrey Rush’s played Philip Henslowe the theater manager when everything conspired to stop the show from going forward, nervously but with a strange conviction said,
Philip Henslowe: “Mr. Fennyman, allow me to explain about the theatre business. The natural condition is one of insurmountable obstacles on the road to imminent disaster.
Hugh Fennyman: So what do we do?
Philip Henslowe: Nothing. Strangely enough, it all turns out well.
Hugh Fennyman: How?
Philip Henslowe: I don’t know. It’s a mystery.

It can often feels like when looking at the number of things that have to come together for an event to happen feels like we don’t know how it will happen.  But the conviction of highly talented, caring and determined individuals always triumphs.  The answer to the question posed is trust your gut, hire a company that will treat your event like it was their own and are positively committed to your joy, and you will have it.
