One of the most time consuming tasks on any party planners’ to-do list is finding and securing the party vendors. First, you need to identify the vendors you need. Next, is finding a few options to explore their services, see examples of their work, and discuss availability. Then it’s on to determining which vendor to hire and working out the specific details of your event.
Depending on the type of event, your local vendor needs will vary. For a large-scale event like a bar mitzvah or wedding, you’ll likely need to find a venue, photographer, band or DJ, caterer, bakery, attire, florist, event rentals, and maybe even transportation. For an event like a kid’s birthday party, you’ll probably need balloons, bakery, party rentals like a bounce house or cotton candy machine, and entertainment like a clown or magician.
The Punchbowl Vendors directory can easily help you find party vendors in your area for all types of events from life milestones like baby showers and birthdays to corporate events to weddings and anniversaries and everything in between.
To begin, select the type of vendor you need from the drop-down menu and enter your zip code. Your search will return several pages of results. Some search results pages include “Featured” listings. These are enhanced listings that often include a photo gallery or a link back to the vendor’s website. Scroll through the list of options and read more descriptions about each vendor.
Start the search for local vendors for your next event! It’s never too early to book vendors so you can continue on with the rest of your party planning!
