Choosing a Venue  

The first decision you need to make is where to host the event. When selecting a venue, you want to look at where you can have proper ventilation or free moving air. If choosing somewhere outside, you may want to invest in a spot cooler rental South Florida; this will help your guests stay comfortable in the heat. Additionally, take the time to review the space available as well, to ensure that your guests can safely socially distance.

Preparing for Safety  

Making your guests feel safe should be a top priority. One of the easiest ways to do this is by setting up hand washing and hand sanitizer stations. For food services, limit who is serving food. When possible, set up trash cans with foot pedals rather than ones where guests may need to touch. By putting these sorts of safety measures in place, you can make sure your guests are protected throughout the event. 

Managing a Guest List  

Finally, go through your guest list. Start by looking at local ordinances for gatherings to help you keep your numbers under the legal limits. Then, check that you have found alternative ways of participating for high-risk guests, such as via Zoom. Next, send out the invitations, offering options for people to take part online; or not attend if they feel uneasy. By keeping the conversation open, your guests will feel comfortable no matter how they attend. 

No matter how your event looks, keeping your guests safe should be your highest priority. Just don’t forget to enjoy yourself as well. 

Undas 2014

Massive flow of traffic is expected next weekend as millions of people are expected to troop to their respective hometowns to pay their respects to their departed loved ones.

November 1 (All Saints’ Day) which falls on a Saturday has been declared a Special non-working day (based on the List of Holidays for 2014). There’s no mention about Nov. 2 (All Souls’ Day) being a holiday since it falls on a Sunday this year.

Anyway, there is still Christmas vacation to look forward to, most people can still spend longer uninterrupted vacation with their family during the Christmas break.

For those who will be traveling next weekend, make sure to inspect your car particularly the tires, oil, radiator, fuel, windshield, battery and brakes before taking on a road trip. Remember that vehicles in good condition lower the risk of an accident or breakdown on the road. Be safe everyone.
