Family Restaurants in PretoriaHow to Create the Perfect Family Experience
It’s all about the experience. Whether you’re hosting a 21st birthday, a wedding reception, an anniversary dinner or any other family-orientated function, it’s important to make both the parents and children on your guest list feel welcome and comfortable at the event. While many people shy away from labelling their events a “family experience”, because they’re wary of children running amok and annoying other guests, there are ways in which you can contain the chaos of a family event.
To start with, book your event at a family-friendly restaurant in Pretoria. By doing so, you’ve already won half the battle, as family restaurants tend to already have the infrastructure and logistics in place to keep children thoroughly entertained during those long, but necessary toasts and formal speeches that can make any child antsy in his or her seat. Another way that you can turn your function into a family-friendly event is to book a professional childminder, or more than one, depending on the amount of kids you expect to attend the event.
Make sure that the parents are aware that this service is available to them once they arrive at the event, but more importantly, ensure that the parents are comfortable about leaving their kids in a specific area with a stranger. Do so by introducing the childminders to the parents when they drop their kids off in the play area, and provide a small note to parents at their assigned seats letting them know that the childminding service is a professional company. Consider placing a footnote on the formal invitation too, informing guests of the professional service that is available to keep their children entertained and looked after throughout the event.
Fun Activities for the Whole Family
If you’re hosting a casual get-together, and there’s no need for the stringent formalities that usually accommodate formal functions like weddings or anniversary dinners, for instance, then consider offering activities that the whole family can enjoy. An example would be to do family picnics as a fun way to celebrate a birthday. All the guests can come with their children, who can play ball and other games while the parents enjoy their picnic baskets prepared by the venue’s family restaurant. These are only a few examples of how you can turn any function into a family event.
