Bands and DJ’s will always be a necessity in creating a fun factor at any party along with creative decoration, but what will truly make your guests stop in their tracks in surprise, confusion or fear? Spectacles of water ballerinas to living trees walking around your garden.

MECHANICAL BULLS have been very popular in the growing trend of country rock themed events, especially in Farifield County. It’s cooky, fun and a bit scary. It is so completely unexpected when the most discerning hosts incorporate an element that their guests would never imagine them to enjoy. Well I can tell you from experience, they DO enjoy it and add in a few cocktails or shots of Old Tennessee moonshine, yes they do sell it at Total Wine in Norwalk, and we can’t keep them off it.

UNDERWATER PHOTO BOOTH New from IEG Interactive Entertainment Group. They introduced an underwater photo booth designed for use at pool parties, water parks and other water-based experiences. Guests can see themselves on the underwater live preview monitor, then click the underwater button to snap a branded photo. Photo filters can be applied instantly and photos can be posted live to social media or printed instantly at a kiosk station or using RFID wrist bracelets.

SILENT DISCO’S the future of entertainment. Prefer to dance to your own tune? A silent disco provides guests with high tech wireless headsets with 2 channels to allow you to choose the type of music you prefer to dance to. No worries about noise ordinances, non-dancing guests can hear each talk and every guest gets to dance to their style of music. Talk about stopping your guests in their tracks. Your guests won’t know what is happening when they enter the room to see people dancing in silence. It’s incredibly fun to watch and more fun to participate in.

AQUALILLIES water ballet entertainment. If you have a pool and want to entertain your guests like never before, water ballerinas have been on the rise. Synchronized swimming dating back from the early 20th century has made a come back and clients are loving it. Gone are the floating lily pads or colored balls floating around your pool. Instead, an evening of poolside entertainment in a glowing pool surrounded by tiki torches is breathtaking.

HUMAN NATURE, live entertainment in gargantuan heights dressed up as trees, vines, potted plants and more. Imagine having a garden party in which your tree begins to dance or your potted vine slowly opens its eyes. Custom living art comes in many forms such as statues, body painted models, famous historical figures, Alice in Wonderland Figures etc. In my experience, the effects of spectacle entertainment is best suited for larger parties of 150+. The larger the crowd the more the easier it is to create a surprise factor as they blend in with the crowd until they come to life! You can be certain to create that wow factor you are looking for.

Lost for words? For grooms, best men, brides maids and father of the bride it is the thought of their impending speech that keeps them awake at night and one of the reasons they perspire profusely under their smart tuxedos and glorious gowns. They worry so much so that I am often asked by many groomsmen if they could go first so they can “get it over with” which is also code for “so I can have a drink”. Well you need not worry if you consider the following tips.

  1. Engage the audience in a story. Tell it as though you are sitting in a bar amongst your friends and you will appear much more relaxed and the audience will be engaged.  Just keep it clean to avoid embarrassing the happy couple.
  2. Use specific anecdotes. Rather than telling the guests that the bride is like a sister to you, use specific examples of how you are alike. Perhaps read, maybe not every line, of the brides early emails or phone call when she described her first date with the groom. Keep it innocent and please please don’t tell the crowd if she slept with him on the first date.
  3. Less is more. No one wants to sit and listen to you go on and on so keep it under 5 minutes. Leave them wanting more. Just keep it clean to avoid embarrassing the happy couple.
  4. Have fun. Giving a speech about someone you love is like giving them a present that they will adore. It’s a celebration, not a punishment so jot down your most fond memories and pick the one that makes you smile and perhaps giggle, because if it makes you smile it will surely make your audience smile.
