Graduation Party

 

What is more exciting than a graduation party? As we head into the summer, there is nothing better than celebrating all the dedication and hard work of the ones we love! How can you use ShortStaf to make your graduation celebration one to remember? Make your 2021 Graduation Party unforgettable!

Here are 5-different ways you can use ShortStaf to make your graduation party easy and enjoyable!

 

  1. Find a bartender on ShortStaf!

 

Thinking about serving cocktails to your guests? Instead of shaking up drinks all night, hire a bartender on ShortStaf! What does a ShortStaf bartender do? From shaking up drinks, keeping drinks replenished, monitoring drink stations, or helping your guests, they can basically do it all! A ShortStaf bartender can perform any of the duties you need them to throughout the night.  Even if you are not serving cocktails at your party, think about hiring a bartender on ShortStaf. They will be there to ensure all of your drink stations are replenished and your guests never have to worry about finding something to drink (and neither do you!).

 

  1. Don’t do set up alone. Find set up help!

 

Before any party, there is always so much preparation. Between food, drinks, and decorations, you most likely have your hands full. Don’t rush to get it all done. Find set up help on ShortStaf to make setting up for your party easier than ever. The set-up help position on ShortStaf can put up decorations, set up food and drink stations, move around tables and chairs, and basically tie up all those last minute loose-ends before the party starts! Have an extra pair of hands available to help you so YOU can enjoy!

 

  1. What about the food? Find a server!

 

By hiring a server on ShortStaf, you can have help with all things food! From passing appetizers to setting up and serving platters, they can do it all. If you are going for a more relaxed buffet style, ShortStaf servers can ensure that the buffet area stays clean and replenished for the entirety of the event. ShortStaf servers can help you clean as you go, so there isn’t a big mess to clean at the end of the night. Have help with the little things so you can focus on your graduate.

 

  1. Thinking about grilling? We can help with that too!

 

If you are a person who would like to mingle with your guests instead of being stuck at the grill all night, try hiring a grill cook for the evening! They can tend to the grill, keeping you and your guests fed. They can help you prepare all the food you have planned for the night.

 

  1. Cleaning up has never been so easy…

 

Saying goodbye to your guests at the end of the night means saying hello to all the party clean up. With ShortStaf, you don’t have to do it all alone! You can choose the clean-up position on ShortStaf to help take down decorations, break down food and drink stations, clean plates, pans, and dishes, move tables and chairs, and SO much more. With help from ShortStaf, cleaning up your party is fast and efficient.

Fall in love with hosting parties

Fall in love with Hosting Parties!

Hosting a party should give you that warm fuzzy feeling. You are bringing friends and family together to celebrate! Whether it is a birthday, holiday, announcement, or just because, you deserve to enjoy with your guests.

This Fall season, we want you to ‘Fall’ in love with hosting. At times, it can be stressful and overwhelming. Thanks to ShortStaf, it simply doesn’t have to be that way anymore.

How can you ‘Fall’ in love with hosting? We’ll tell you how in 3 easy steps.

  1. Start planning ahead

Think about everything you need, people you need to invite, and how you’re going to do it. The best way to do this is to make lists! Yes, it sounds basic, but even the best of us forget this small detail. Ever been to the grocery store with a list and still forget something? Yeah, us too. Double check your lists to make sure you don’t forget anyone or anything 🙂

 2. Make yourself a priority

When planning a party, we all seem to lose ourselves in the details. The host naturally thinks of the guests’ needs first. What are they going to want and need when they arrive? How much food and drinks will need to be prepared..and where will it go? Remember, it is your party too! You deserve to enjoy it.

 3. Post to find extra help on the ShortStaf App

All hosts have different needs when it comes to partying. For myself, I would post for set up help because I love decorations (and I have a lot of them). You may want to post for a server to help you prepare appetizer platters, food stations, and clean up as you go! Bartenders are very popular on ShortStaf as well. This allows you and your guests to have full glasses while you sit back, relax, and enjoy each other’s company.

‘Fall’ in love with hosting by planning ahead, making yourself a priority, and posting on the ShortStaf App to make it all happen. This season, spend quality time with your family and friends. How can you make memories when you are constantly cooking, serving, cleaning, and playing bartender? Another season of happy hosting ahead, this time, with some extra help. #ThanksShortStaf
