The most recent one that I had planned was for my baby’s full month celebration.
And then I was already researching for little En Qi's first birthday, and ece rental happened to have emailed me about their services.
ece rental specializes in equipment rental for events. They have an extensive range of exquisite Chinaware, glassware, utensils, to suit your different occasions. They provide rental to corporate customers (like event planners, caterers, F&B business holders), as well as consumers like us.
These equipment caters to different events, such as meetings, corporate cocktails, breakfast talks, private dinners, home catering, conferences, baby showers, weddings, birthday parties, and more.
ece rental aims to provide a high level of service and customer satisfaction, in addition to the wide range of equipment they carry. (Read their FAQ here)
And while we are interested to rent these equipment, we would be concerned over hygiene and convenience. ece rental ensures that the equipment are clean and ready for use upon delivery. They are also able to advise you with the best solution for your event - not just making business for themselves.
I think one of their equipment that I am really interested in is the chafing dish/fuel, since I am thinking of serving home-cooked dishes for my baby's first birthday. So yay! Hot food for the guests even though it's home-cooked food! :)
Tips for Organising Parties:
1. Time // Plan the birthday party to last anytime between 1 to 1.5 hours. Babies or children usually have short attention spans. They may also run out of energy or lose interest quickly. You might want to plan the party around your child’s nap time. Make sure they are not tired and grouchy to enjoy the party! For babies, keep your nursing shawl handy as well! I remember I had to run away to nurse my baby at least twice during her full month celebration. Haha!
2. Who to Invite // To make things simple and easily organized, cut back the guest list to include only the VIPs (or VVIPs), like relatives and close friends only. This would be helpful especially if your child is not used to seeing many strangers at a go. Cutting back on guests will also help to keep your costs manageable.
3. Play Area // If you are inviting babies or children around your child’s age range, set aside a play area that is child safe, filled with appropriate toys for them. Place some chairs for parents to sit around, watch their children, and chit chat with one another.
4. Food // You can choose if you want to order from the caterer, or surprise everyone with your culinary skills or simple home-cooked food. For that professional set-up look, you can order tableware and serving chafing dish/fuel from vendors.
5. Chill! // Most importantly, don’t stress yourself out! As parents, it’s natural that we want to have that “perfect” party, but it’s also good to just keep things simple and make everyone (including ourselves haha!) happy!
