Venue Canceled? Consider Holding Your Special Event in the Garage Instead

Oct 25, 2022

Picture this. You’ve planned the perfect birthday party for your ten-year-old daughter who loves to dance. All of her friends and family would be going to the dance studio to not only dance with her but also watch her dance. You booked a private class under her favorite choreographer who’ll be teaching her favorite genre to dance. It’ll run for an hour and a half and then pizza, cake, and other treats will be served after. The best part about it? 

She doesn’t have any clue that it’s a surprise party for her. She thought she just signed up for a regular class and would be meeting friends there as usual. The only unusual thing was you offered to wait for her at the dance studio instead of having your nails done while she was doing class. 

She was so excited but then the studio caught fire during the night and there was suddenly no venue to do the party at. You tried making last-minute reservations but everything that was within your budget was already booked. The instructor was still free and all your daughter’s friends were still keen to go. Good thing, your younger self thought of something for some reason you didn’t even entertain. “Why don’t we use the garage space, mommy? 

Your garage was pretty huge with high ceilings. You can roll up the garage door for more space, use extension cords for multiple sockets, blast music through speakers and then after the dance class, have everyone eat snacks and drink in the backyard. It was a win-win situation that you know you just gotta make happen for your kid who has been looking forward to this day for quite some time. 

You immediately went to work and made the necessary arrangements. You called your event designer friend to help you set up the garage and make it feel as if it were a dance studio even for just one time. The professionals had to stick up mirrors on both sides of the garage so that everyone would be able to see their reflections while dancing. You made sure the light was apt and that there were streamers everywhere to celebrate birthdays the way it is done. 

One of the preparations also involved decluttering the garage. Whatever you throw away at this point, you should lose any sort of detachment to it and just think of all the happiness the recipient will get from it. You can commission the help of the whole household so that you can declutter the garage properly, sell what can be sold, and make sure everything is organized once done. You’d want to free up the floor aka the dance floor and ensure the safety of everyone by ensuring that the wall shelves and ceiling storage racks are secured properly so that one gets injured while learning and dancing the choreography. Not only will you prepare the garage for the special occasion but for many years to come just because you decided to finally clean it up.
