Are you part of the organization committee for your company at the upcoming trade fair and would like to ensure that the hospitality is top notch? Are you organizing your partner's 40th birthday party in a few months and you're planning to go the extra mile for the occasion? Or maybe you will soon be throwing a party for family and friends that you don't feel like managing the entire time while your guests are having fun? If any of these situations relate to you, have you ever considered booking a hostess for the party or event you are organizing?
You probably have an idea of what a hostess is and what they exactly do, but since it is a fairly broad concept, we will briefly explain what we mean by booking a hostess. Hostesses are specifically women who serve and act as hospitable helpers for the guests at an event. In many cases you are the host or hostess as an organiser, but often throwing a party is enough work alone and most want to enjoy the event once it comes. In such cases, booking hostesses can be the ideal solution as they will continue to do the work on making sure everyone is having a good time and full of drinks or food.
The duties and responsibilities of a hostess can vary based on the type of party or event that they are working at. For example, at more formal occasions such as weddings or fancy dinners, they will have to manage a guest list, seating plan, and lead the guests to their seats. This is important so that everyone sits at their right place well before the food is served and to avoid any chaos of late seating or disruptions to the agenda. During more informal events, such as small get-togethers and parties, a hostess is generally less concerned with guest lists and seating plans, and more with the general comfort of your guests. This primarily regards working the coat check, serving cocktails, and bringing around trays of hors d'oeuvres.
The great thing about booking a hostess is that it can add value to a whole variety of parties and events, both for your guests and for yourself. Whether you are organizing a romantic wedding, a spectacular award ceremony, or a fun theme party, booking a hostess can ensure that your guests are provided with everything they need and you can also enjoy your own party. Given the responsibility that a hostess has at your event, it is important that she brings a certain level of professionalism and experience.
Due of hostesses that cna be booked for a multitude of occasions, it can sometimes be difficult to know which profile would best suit your party or event.

What does a hostess do at your party or event?
As we wrote earlier, the duties and responsibilities of a hostess can vary greatly depending on the party or event that you are planning on having. However, that does not mean that there are not some general tasks that a good hostess must be able to perform to make the opportunity a success.
A hostess helps with the planning
In most cases, the hostess plays an important role at the party or event in you're planning, even if you as the organizer does not fully take on the role of hostess or host. During the party, the hostess ensures that everything runs smoothly and that all guests are enjoying themselves. For that reason it is important that she is also involved in the planning of the party that you are going to organize. In this way, she knows exactly what you are looking for and may possibly, based on her experience, give suggestions to make the event run as smoothly as possible.
A hostess gives your guests a warm welcome
When you share the duties that you require from the hostesses, the first one is most likely welcoming your guests. This might include taking their coats for them at a coat check, greeting them with a tray of tasty appetizers, or even welcoming them with a nice glass of champagne from a tower. A good first impression is always the best way to get your guests exicted about the rest of the event, so hostesses come in handy.
A hostess also ensures that your guests feel at ease during the party
This of course depends on the division of tasks, but in general a hostess also deals with your guests during the event itself. As a host, you can make sure you greet everyone and have nice conversations as the hostesses keep them satisfied with food and drink. Above that, hostesses can also bring guests together at an event that might not know eachother. This ensures everyone will have a nice time at the event.
A hostess can also work as an entertainer
This relates to the previous point and also depends on the type of party or event that you are organizing. There are often hostesses that walk around with interactive games that the guests can play with eachother. Other hostesses can move around and perform magic tricks to thoroughly entertain the guests firsthand.
A hostess can help to finish the party nicely
For the oganiser, the party or event does not end until the last guest has left the venue. To make the occasion a success, it is important that the end is also arranged to perfection. If the jackets are checked on arrival, the hostess can help ensure that everyone has their things back quickly. In addition, she can stand at the exit to thank your guests for coming and to wish them a good journey back home. This may sound like simple details, but it is often the details that make the difference between good events and fantastic events. By booking a hostess, you can take care of all these details and give your guests a memorable experience.
