The Butler’s Top Tips for Hosting the Perfect Event

What is an event without a roaming photo booth? Can you even call it an event without a flower wall?

Drink on arrival:

Your guests should be welcomed with something to sip on when they walk in, first impressions are important and you want it to ‘wow’ them, so make sure it is something delicious (check out our cocktail menu here).  Picture it this way, do you think Carrie Bradshaw would ever walk into an event and not have a Cosmo waiting for her…


We all know that looking and feeling the part at an event is one of the most important factors, however, us ladies tend to forget that lasting all day and night in a pair of ravishing heels is harder than it seems.

Dolling yourself up is part and parcel of any event, but it is so important to remain comfortable, especially as you’re going to be walking up and down The Butler’s stairs a fair few times to not only apply another coating of your favourite lippy but also to grab a spritz from our fabulous Juanita’s bar. Simple yet sophisticated is the approach we like to adopt.

Stay Hydrated:

Remember, water is your best friend – especially with a slice of lemon and fresh mint leaves. Nothing is better than a beautiful glass of icy cold water on a hot summer’s day to quench your thirst. At events you will most likely be indulging in delicious treats and tantalising cocktails, water will keep you feeling fresh and hydrated (plus it is fab for your skin!).

The people need to eat! This is one area not to be frugal with. Pair your delicious arrival cocktail with a welcome canapé and ensure your guests have lined their stomach before the big event ahead. We have a range of canapé and banquet options available to suit your event needs, whether it’s a cocktail style event, sit down, breakfast, lunch or dinner – we’ve got you sorted. Check out our event menus here.

Amazing Florals:

Florals make everything look better. People are attracted to elegant and decorative features, flowers are an easy way to create themes & re-create spaces. Not only do they add pops of colour, but at the end of the event you get to take them home for extra brownie points…
“Hi honey, look what I got you today”.

Photograph Everything:

Did the event even happen if you haven’t got a hashtag or an insta worthy pic?

Make sure that you are snapping away, not only is it amazing for future events but also to create lifelong memories. Piccys are forever! Invest in a roaming photo booth as everyone loves them and it gets people involved and mingling.  There is nothing more valuable than the memories created with your work friends – it’ll be great to look back on over the months to come. Remember to tag @thebutlersydney and create a personal event hashtag to track your guests posts from the event.
