Complete Function Hire’s Top Tips on How To Throw a Raceday Party At Home

If you didn’t get that Birdcage Marquee invite that you had been crossing your fingers for, why not bring the excitement of the track to your home with our great Spring Racing Carnival party planning tips!

Great friends, great food and cold drinks will make for a fun filled party at home. Here are some other race day party essentials to ensure your guests will have a ball.

Sweep Stakes

No race day party at home is complete without a race day sweep. Ask your family and friends to select a random horse out of the hat for the win. This is a great ice breaker that will get your crowd cheering.

The Bar

Ice cold drinks are a race day essential. Set up an easy to use self-service bar area to make your life easier. We hire temporary bars of all shapes and sizes to fit into your home or back yard and don’t forget to order enough glassware, ice buckets and punch bowls. For an added special touch, try your hand at a signature cocktail and make your own cocktail creation look extra special in one of our wide range of glasses.

The View

For horse racing enthusiasts, a big screen and speakers to hear all the excitement is a great touch for any race day party at home. Ensure you have enough furniture for you guests to be comfortable including bar tables, seating and large umbrellas for the back yard to be sun smart. We have easy to use pop up Marquee’s if you want to create a trackside feel for your own back yard.

The Spread

A classic BBQ is an easy and always well received way to feed the crowd. Check your guest list in advance and make sure you have enough BBQs and warming ovens to feed your hungry guests at once. Complete Function Hire have a range of equipment including platters, cutlery and crockery to make serving your guests easy.
