Planning the perfect function can be a little more complicated than just showing up and letting the good times roll. There are a lot of little details that need to come together in order for the evening to run smoothly, which is why we have put together this short guide on how to plan a perfect event at Marina Lunga Cucina.

Here are 3 easy tips for planning the perfect function with us.

Tip 1: Decide on a date and time.

The first step in planning any successful function is deciding on a date and time.

You’ll need to take into account the availability of your guests, as well as the availability with us at Marina Lunga Cucina – Balmain or Marrickville. Ideally, you’ll want to give your guests plenty of notice so that they can make arrangements to attend.

Consider your guest list, including both the number of people expected to attend as well as their individual dining preferences. Deciding on a date and time that works for the majority of your guests will make planning much easier.

The date and time of your party will determine how many guests you can expect, as well as what kind of menu and catering services are available.

Tip 2: Send out invitations.

Sending out invitations is an important part of the planning process, and it’s important to make sure that you give your guests enough notice. You can either send out physical invitations or send out electronic invitations. If you choose to send out electronic invitations, be sure to include all the pertinent information, such as the date, time, and location of the party. You should also include a link to a website where guests can RSVP.

Sending out the invitations is the second step to planning your perfect party.

You’ll want to send invitations in a timely manner in order to give potential guests enough time to make travel arrangements if needed. However, there’s no need to wait too long either. If you send invitations out too far in advance, people may forget about your party before it happens.

Tip 3: Decide on a menu

Deciding on a menu and theme is the next essential step in planning the perfect party.  The menu you choose should fit with your budget and any dietary restrictions that might be at play.
