Entertaining Children and Adults Made Simple

After a long career in the party planning industry, I decided to take some time off to spend more time with my little ones. I thought it would be fun to start a blog to share many of the fun experiences I had at work along with some party planning tips that anyone can put to good use. I want to start by stressing the need for great entertainment at every party. When there is a fun clown or superhero at a children's birthday party, it makes it much easier for the children to have a great time without the adults at the party having to do all the entertainment work. However, good entertainment is also needed at adult gatherings, because adults like to have fun, too! Come back often for more tips!

Five Tips For Hiring Impersonators For Your Next Big Party

If you are planning a huge party and want to make it truly unique, consider hiring celebrity impersonators to attend the party and talk to the guests. When hiring the impersonators, it is important to meet them in person. This allows you to learn how well they impersonate the celebrity and set some ground rules for what you expect at the party. The guide below walks you through a few guidelines to set for the impersonator to make sure the party goes smoothly.

Establish a Timeline for the Impersonator

The first thing you need to do is you need to establish a timeline for the impersonator. He or she needs to know when they need to be ready to start performing and when their obligation is complete. This allows them to determine when they need to start getting ready to walk around as the celebrity so that they can be ready when the time comes.

Determine the Attire the Impersonator Will Wear

If you are having an event where children or elderly people will be present, you want to be sure that the attire that the impersonator wears is tasteful, regardless of what celebrity they are impersonating. They should be able to show you what options are available so that you can choose which outfit you feel would be the best option for your event.

Establish Tasteful Dialogue Restrictions

The impersonator will be walking around talking to your guests as the celebrity they are impersonating. If the celebrity was known to be a bit risqué, you need to be sure to let the impersonator know to keep their conversations tasteful because you do not want anyone to be offended by the impersonators dialogue.

Establish if Drinking Is Allowed

You need to let the impersonator know if they are allowed to drink. It will be difficult to monitor how much they are drinking so you may want to restrict their drinking, just to ensure that they will be able to do their job well at the party.

Establish a Wage for the Impersonators Services

Finally, you and the impersonator need to establish what you will pay him or her for their services. You need to be sure that the wage is fair based on the amount of time that they will be there talking with your guests.

After all of these guidelines have been put into place, you and the impersonator will know what to expect at the party. Be sure to put the agreement in writing so that you can both refer to it before the big day arrives. For more information about hiring impersonators, contact The Edwards Twins.
