Entertaining Your Guests

If there is one thing a host must do when throwing a party, it is to ensure that all of their guests have a great time. One way to do this is by planning an activity that everyone can participate in. This is especially important for events when people are meeting for the first time, such as conferences. An activity will enable everyone to get to know one another without having to suffer any awkward chit-chat.

Warm Weather Update

It’s hard to believe we’re already halfway through the year – 2015 seems like it has just flown by. Here at Aces Up, we have finally begun to slow down after a hectic first half…just in time to regroup, take a vacation or two, then begin preparing for the holiday season. Since summer is typically our slowest time of year, it’s a great chance for us to take a little break. Kevin just returned from an Alaskan fishing trip with enough halibut and salmon to feed a small country, Pat is off to New York in July to visit family, and Alex has weekend trips to Tahoe (his bachelor party), and Vegas (his brother’s) coming up.

Other than that, our summers are typically filled with grad nights, birthday parties, poker tournaments, and the occasional fundraiser. Of course, we do weddings once in a while too! It’s a little non-traditional, but having a casino party at a wedding is a great way to ensure guests that don’t like to dance (and don’t necessarily know each other) can mingle and have a great time at the reception.

If you haven’t visited our website recently – you may notice a couple of changes/additions. We have added a blog, for one (you’re reading it, although please bear with us as we build out the content!) If there’s something you’d like to hear us write about, let us know, but we plan to fill this space with information and advice on how to run events – fundraisers, corporate holiday parties, etc. In addition to the blog, we have added a regularly updated availability and discounts calendar to our Request a Proposal page – this will have specials added often, and will let you know about dates that are booking up or sold out. We definitely recommend checking the calendar if you’re planning an event, as you can receive as much as 15% off at times (for example – from July 22-28 with the Discount Code – 15offJuly).

So what’re you up to this summer?

Enjoy this beautiful weather and keep us in mind for your outdoor events! Have a great summer!
