Being a member of the National Fraternity, as part of the New Orleans Fraternity Formal Society is going to be a truly amazing experience. Formal dinners and parties and presentations and mingling with other high-ranking fraternities are all an event of a lifetime. Here is how to make that event a little bit more unforgettable.
Start early: This is one of the things that people do not understand about formal dining. There is an early start, so that they can have all the proper items that they require for the evening. You cannot just show up at the table and expect food to be served. The first dish is always the specialty of the evening. What you need is time to prepare it well.
Get seating: You will want to think about the seating arrangements. Remember that you are going to have plenty of distractions for a party. Your guests are going to be watching the proceedings and are going to be wandering around and trying to get themselves in a good position. Be sure that you are in the correct place at the correct time. You may even find that you need to seek out the next guest that wants to sit down with you to join you.
Buy your own gift: When you buy a gift for a guest, it is something that you might not normally purchase yourself. So if you can, it would be great to get someone who appreciates your gifts to purchase it for you. Just be sure that the gift is something that will be useful for them. Make sure that you are buying it for them too. If you buy something that is not needed, you might end up regretting it.
The food and wine, oh yes! Don’t forget about the food and wine for the occasion! After all, it is the food and wine that will make your evening unforgettable.
If you have the luxury of spending some extra money, you might consider buying some nice gourmet foods. They are made especially for those special occasions, such as a dinner in New Orleans. They are usually given to the attendees and serve as a thank you gift for attending.
If you are working with a party theme, be sure to choose one that fits the occasion well. There are plenty of wonderful New Orleans theme menus available at the various online auction sites that sell New Orleans themed party supplies. No matter what the theme is, you can be sure that there is something that will fit the occasion perfectly.
With the amount of people that will be attending the party, make sure that everyone has something to do. It can be just as easy as inviting friends and family to join you for a single dinner and then inviting the rest of the guests to join you for the rest of the night. Dinner can be an excellent way to start the evening, as long as the food that you serve fits the occasion as well.
