Entertainment is an important part of our lives. There’s virtually no one in this world who does not want to laugh or have fun among friends and family. Quality entertainment helps enliven the spirits and makes feel fresh and alive. The best entertainment suspends reality for a while and takes to a new place and leave behind all worries and troubles.
So how much should you spend from your pocket for entertainment at your party or reception? In today’s world whatever we do, budget plays an important factor. Keeping this in mind, we should also plan for our budget when it comes to entertainment for a party or wedding reception.
Always remember that the key towards entertainment is to get the maximum of enjoyment without spending huge amounts of money. Of course it depends on the type of entertainment option that you are choosing for. Going for a high profile party or some event in a five-star hotel will always and automatically cost you more than arranging for a small party at a friend’s place .
. Based on the type of event, you need to plan for the budget. Normally with a few hundred to thousand dollars you can easily organize an event with good amount of entertainment.
Spending for an entertainment or event also depends on the number of people coming to attend it. For example, if your party has around 100 people, it may cost you $500-1500 to organize your party’s entertainment. The amount will increase if the number of guests increases to 500. The type of venue that you choose is also a major factor to ascertain your costs. Organizing a small party at your own home or a friend’s place will cost much less than a big venue or banquet hall.
As music is an integral part of entertainment, most events and parties include some type of music performances. If your event is going to be more than 4-5 hours or you have a theme to the entertainment, you may have to shed some extra money. However, it will may make your party more exciting and enjoyable and be worth of the money that you are paying.
Who wants to be the entertainment at their own kid’s party? Or the party of any child who knows them, for that matter? No one in their right mind is who. Children have an unerring sense of satire, which finds its freest expression when they watch an adult they know make a complete fool out of him or her self, prancing around a garden in a low rent clown outfit or trying to do magic tricks with a spoon. No – there’s something about children’s party entertainment that instinctively says “get someone else to do it”: so who better to do just that than someone who’s actually doing it as a job?
Professional kid’s entertainers have (quite literally, in most cases) an army of tricks up their sleeve to capture the attentions of the little princes and princesses in a way that “known” adults just can’t. Kids are cruel (as anyone who has ever been one will attest) – and never crueller than when exposing weaknesses, like lack of talent, in others. Imagine the horror of trying to get a whole bunch of over excited little darlings, all rushing on an overload of sugar and jelly, to believe that one is a magician when they clearly know that one is not. Leave it to the children’s party entertainment.
The whole point of a child’s entertainer is to distract the birthday boy or girl and his or her guests for long enough that they can expend all those E-numbers on some contained lunacy. Parents, no matter how gifted, can’t rise to that challenge. The natural impulse of a parent, when confronted with a horde of screaming children, is to try and impose order and discipline. The job of a children’s party entertainer, on the other hand, is to channel all that screaming into fun and frolic – at the end of which Johnny and Jane and all their friends will be spent enough for their folks to take them home.
Childrens party entertainment, professionally done, is appealing also because it can offer such a wide range of options for the stressed out parent. A magic show, whilst popular, isn’t the only dish on the menu – not by a long shot. A decent children’s party entertainer can provide games, stories, a puppet show, balloon tricks – even a mobile disco suitable for small feet
