Most of us like to think our party is foolproof, however, a disaster could strike at any moment, in many shapes and forms. Whether you're having a party at a local park and it starts to rain, to throwing a party at your home and experience a sudden blackout, preparing for these events is crucial!
Preparing for a 'Party Disaster' is a lot simpler than you think. Many people do it subconsciously without even realising it. The general premise of party disasters goes as follows: research, and equip yourself properly.
Research for your party depends completely on where your parties taking place, and when. If you're hosting a party outside, research the weather patterns. You do not want to get caught in the rain while throwing a party. Research the traffic flow if you are throwing a party at a remote location (because no host in their right mind wants to be late to their own party). If you are hiring a venue, ensure everything works! prior to the day.
If the rain clouds have been forming and there's a high chance of rain in the general vicinity of your outdoor party, have a backup plan formulated before you set up. You may have a power outage, or need to enquire about the local pizza parlour.
Equip yourself with the necessary tools to ensure that even if a disaster does strike, you are adequately prepared and equipped for the occasion. If its an indoor party, and you loose power, ensure you have candles and torches around. If your driving a long distance to your party, make sure to have extra gas.
By preparing, you are saving time and emotional energy in the long run, by preventing disasters which can potentially ruin your party.
