Galas

Make your Gala the talk of the town!

When you think of a gala, you probably imagine a formal, regal event. This might mean a black-tie dress code, catered dinner, live band, and speeches or presentations throughout the evening - along with amazing entertainment. A social event, such as a gala, can really boost your company or brand reputation, especially if it is a corporate function designed to impress potential donors, investors, or high-end clients. Below are several tips to successfully hosting a stress-free black tie, high-heeled social event.
Set your sights on your goal:
What's the purpose of your event? Perhaps this is a charity event, and you are trying to raise money for a worthy cause. Or, would you like to recruit new clients or are you planning on unveiling your latest product? Make sure to relay your goal to the event planners at O'Brien Productions, and allow us to create, design, and layout a plan to develop your desired, successfully executed event. We are able to assist you with all aspects of your gala, including managing your social media needs. After using O'Brien Productions, and seeing how we can make this a stress-free and valuable gala with a great ROI, you will want to make this an annual event.
Choose the perfect Venue:
If you are hosting a formal event, your backyard probably won't make the cut. Fortunately, there's no shortage of high-end venues, especially in the metro Atlanta area and within the southeast. O'Brien Productions has a vast list of venues for you to choose from, and with over 30 years of event planning under our belt, we have formed close business relationships with facility managers and property owners. Whether you are going for a historical vibe or a modern flair, we are certain to have experience at that venue, will know their guidelines, and most importantly, their restrictions. O'Brien Productions is available to assist you with all aspects of your event, and when selecting a venue, you want to make sure your wish list has all the boxes checked. We have the knowledge and experience of working with venues all across the southeast and we know what each venue will, and most importantly, will not allow at their facility, and what type of venue is best suited for your needs and the type of formal event you desire to host.
Entertainment is key:
A gala is not complete without some form of entertainment. If you're holding a formal event, consider something along the lines of a string orchestra or harpist. You can pair musicians of any type with dancing for a fun affair - especially with themes that lend themselves well to a dance floor pairing (like a masquerade ball!). Other entertainment could include a choreographed dance team, specific to your theme, and ready to perform while your guests watch in awe. Also, we are able to provide you with professional dancers, available to assist in teaching dances to your guests like Country Line Dancing, Salsa, Disco, Hip-Hop, and Swing Dancing. Other dances like the Fox Trot and Charleston are great ways to get crowd engagement and make it a fun and energetic night for everyone! Consider a professional speaker or emcee for all of your announcements, and live music from a well-known artist, if your budget provides.
Bring the WOW factor with Food and Drinks:
Always serve memorable food at your gala. At the end of the night, on the ride home, the food and cocktails will be one of the topics your guests will discuss. Whether it's a buffet-style dinner or a multi-course meal, we can offer you many different meal service options. O'Brien Productions is an all-inclusive event planning company, which allows you to eliminate the need for multiple outside vendors. Because we are able to assist you with every aspect of your event, this also allows for a substantial savings, giving you a better ROI.
As for the cocktails, there are many different ways you can offer drinks to your gala guests. Creating a martini bar or bringing in a professional mixologist to prepare drinks using dry ice, will leave a lasting impression. Or, hire a bartender who can create customized cocktails on the spot. Maybe you would like to have champagne served to your guests upon their entrance, along with formally dressed servers walking around the venue constantly offering to top off or refill their flutes. The choice is yours.
It's ALL about the THEME, so choose wisely:
Need a fresh fundraising theme that has not been done over and over again? Want to produce an exciting event that generates the buzz to engage supporters? Not only do we plan and execute, O'Brien Productions also specialize in building themes and incorporating creative and effective fundraising event ideas you never thought possible.
Galas are so much more fun when there is a theme your guests can get excited about. Take a look at some of the successfully produced theme parties we have to offer, or let's work together and dream up a custom theme for your gala. Whichever direction you choose, O'Brien Productions will help you navigate details like food selection, music choices, entertainment, floral arrangements, decor, and so much more.
What O'Brien Productions can do for you:
O'Brien Productions will provide the staff to not only help design your event with the gala committee, but also fully set up and take down the decorations, making sure to clean up after your special party. Whether you've already found your perfect venue, or you are just starting the event planning phase, we will partner with you to oversee every detail of your event. On the day of your gala, O'Brien Productions will have an event supervisor on-site to make sure that everything runs smoothly and according to plan. If any issues surface, they will eliminate it quickly and with efficiency. O'Brien Productions will be there for you before, during, and even after your event, allowing you to enjoy yourself along with your guests.
