The everyday life of an average person is guaranteed to be very busy. All of our obligations quickly mount up, even more so our work hours are on the more occupying side. This can turn organizing a fun little event into a true nightmare. One of the biggest issues of organizing events is finding an area to keep it in. This is why party buses are so popular, they also provide us with added uniqueness of the event.
However, this doesn’t take care of all the worries and it doesn’t cut down all the time consuming aspects either. That’s why we packed up some tips that will help you capitalize on your free time by throwing an event or a party in a last-minute fashion. All the most important details will be covered in order to assist you in making the most fun event in a short amount of time.
1. Get invites ready
If we want to get a party going we will need actual people to attend it. Thankfully, inviting people to something like this has become a lot easier with the invention of emails and social media. Prepare your invitation before calling people to the event.
Make sure to point out when and where the party bus will leave. Additionally, point out the theme and any other aspect that could be important for the person to know. Now that you are done with planning your invitation, which shouldn’t take longer than half an hour or so, it’s time to actually invite people. Some social media have event feature available which will allow you to cut down all the individual inviting by simply adding people you wish to invite to your party in the event group. Otherwise, you could try making group chats for the sake of informing everybody about the party.
Worst case scenario is you sending individual messages to everybody, although even that can be shortened by having the invitation ready to copy and paste. Make sure not to invite more people than you have space in the party bus for, if your budget is more open-ended then invite as many people as the biggest party bus can handle. Check at the rental service or their website what they have on offer. If you are in Canada, look over Toronto Limo Bus as they have some great offers when it comes to party buses.

2. Theme of the party bus
While not every party needs a theme, one that’s taking place on a party bus most certainly does. While you can get by with just a plain old party bus, it’s the added theming that makes the whole experience that much more memorable. Don’t get carried away with decorations either, keep it simple so you can have more space for the party members and so that you can use the remaining time on something more fruitful.
Putting on simple banners and streamers is a great go to solution when it comes to decorations but a few balloons never go amiss. Check out if the bus has a TV or other type of screen inside of it too, this could be a wellspring of ideas when it comes to decorating the party bus. Even a simple still image can add to the mood of the place. If you want to add costumes to the party make sure they are kept simple. While elaborate costumes are cool, they don’t really fit well into the confined space.
3. Plan the route
The benefit of a party bus is that you can take the party anywhere. If your group is more inclined towards nature, park farther away from town and have a wild time next to greenery. You could also take a lakeside experience route and even go for a swim as the party goes on. The options are plentiful but you should probably plan ahead.
Prepare a few options that are easy to inform the driver about and then see which is the most popular among the present guests. Pick the most popular one and have a wild time with some unique twists.
4. Pack appropriate food and drinks
When making a party like this it’s important to get proper food and drinks for the occasion. As far as food goes, it’s important to get food that won’t take up too much space or potentially be difficult to clean if it spills. The snacks should be very simple and you shouldn’t clutter too much of the party bus. Finger foods are another great idea when it comes to snacks, pack many of those too but don’t overdo it especially if there aren’t too many guests. When it comes to drinks, you want to bring two drinks for each guest to start with. Bring out new drinks as time goes on but don’t overdo the amount of drinks especially if you are concerned about cleaning fees.
5. Arrange a music playlist
Your music playlist should be based on the theme as well. Corresponding music choices will enhance the ambience as well as riling up the party. Check with the rental service what types of connectivity exist for music inside of the bus. Which apps are compatible with the sound system is key thing to know because it allows you to prepare before the big party. Pick out as many songs as you need to cover the whole rental period otherwise you’ll have repeating songs which can get stale. It’s also possible to suddenly have the whole party go silent which can kill the energy of the party. Have some extra songs you can switch in just in case people aren’t keen on certain artists.
The preparations for a party don’t have to take a while if we know what we are doing. Covering every little thing will be impossible, that’s a given, but the important broad strokes can be filled out in just a few hours. Getting people informed about the party, renting the best party bus that fits the occasion, and filling in the miscellaneous needs will get us pumped and ready for some relaxation. No matter how long we expect the whole party to be, these preparation tips will hold up. Of course, you can prepare some extra stuff if you have the time and will for it. Things like karaoke, games, and other fun activities can add onto the whole experience keeping the momentum of the party high.
