20 Things Only Event Planners Will Understand

‘Event Planner’

Noun.

  1. A person whose profession it is to create wonderful social events. Works long, late hours, acquires a silly number of to-do lists and makes no complaints when a client makes ridiculous unachievable requests.

Event planning is a tricky job, but there’s no feeling quite like wrapping up an event and there’s no hiding that Cheshire-cat grin once you finally pull everything off! You knew those freakishly good organisational skills would come in handy one day.

Here at All About Me, we work alongside some wonderful event planners who plan fabulous shindigs from Christenings to 60th Birthday parties to tear-jerkingly beautiful weddings. Whether you’re a professional event planner, or just in charge of this year’s Christmas party, we think you might enjoy this light hearted infographic: 20 Things Only Event Planners Will Understand.

Advent Spot the Difference

We are heading into the first day of Advent tomorrow. Yes December has arrived already and we are celebrating by doing our ever-popular, festive spot the difference advent calendar.

We were going to make it just a single difference each day, but Samantha decided that was far too kind and easy for you lot! So there are 3 differences every dingle day from now until Christmas.

It is just for fun, so you are welcome to comment on each image if you have found the differences, ask us for help if it is driving you mad, or share it with friends. Ideally, this is what we would like you to do so that as many people as possible can see just how fabulous our tipis are! And watch out for special offers, discounts and announcements along the way.

Happy Advent everyone!

Bedouin Tent Hire

What are Bedouin Tents?

Well strictly speaking a Bedouin Tent is a cloth structure used by Arabs as a dwelling in the deserts of Asia and Africa. So do we hire Bedouin tents? No we don’t. We do however hire tents similar to the traditional Bedouin dwelling.

Did you know that according to source of all internet knowledge Wikipedia;

“There are a number of Bedouin tribes, but the total population is often difficult to determine, especially as many Bedouin have ceased to lead nomadic or semi-nomadic lifestyles.”

Interesting isn’t it? So if you have landed here we can assume you are looking to hire something similar to a Bedouin Tent from a company near Cheshire. In which case, take a look at our photo gallery and see if anything you see matches what you are looking for.

We prefer to call out tents, teepees, tipis, marquees, katas or camping tipis. We have a wide selection of tents to select from depending on your specific requirements.

7 excellent reasons to hire a tipi over winter

Just another quick reminder about our amazing winter offer….

“Book a tipi from All About ME for any event between October 2015 and March 2016 and you will get 15% off your tipi hire costs AND free fairy lights!”

You may be thinking this doesn’t apply to you because you are already married, or it isn’t your birthday until June, but there are a whole host of other reasons to hire a tipi;

  1. An amazing Christmas Party – impress all of your friends and family by hosting an extravagant party this festive season complete with your favourite Christmas music, log fire pits, christmas jumpers and maybe even a visit from santa. It doesn’t have to be a huge soiree. just one tipi will comfortably host up to 60 people.
  2. A special anniversary – are your parents celebrating a significant wedding anniversary this year? Why not organise a surprise party for them in a Tipi? Their friends will love the relaxed atmosphere and the uniMedia City 2que setting. Maybe it could be an afternoon tea party? The gusts will all be kept warm and dry no matter what the weather.
  3. A 40th birthday party – picture this – you invite all of your closest friends and family to a hog roast disco and relive your youth by pumping out some 80’s classics. Everyone brings a bottle and a sleeping bag, and those who are up for it can sleep in the tipi or maybe one of our bell tents. Then as the sun rises and your heads start to hurt, you can cook breakfast over the fire pit and start the party all over again!
  4. A christening – as a bit of a contrast to suggestion number 3, how about holding a sophisticated christening party in a tipi? It would certainly be a celebration to remember and imagine how great the photographs will look in years to come.
  5. Glamping trip – fancy yourself as a bit of a Bear Grylls? Organise a winter camping weekend with your friends. Hire some kayaks, take your fishing rods, make a camp fire and enjoy the great outdoors.
  6. Kids Christmas Party – instead of having 30 children wreck your house, save yourself the stress and hire a tipi for the kids christmas party this year. They are guaranteed to love it and the parents might just enjoy it a bit more this year too!
  7. New Year Celebrations – see the new year in by throwing a NYE party in style with a Tipi. What better way to banish the new year blues by soaking up the atmosphere of a tipi party, and continue the celebrations by hosting a breakfast buffet in the morning.
