Party time

Jenn Scott July 3rd, 2013

The thing about attending a party — from bridal shower brunch to evening cocktails — is that the experience can be fun and relaxing for guests.

The thing about planning a party is that “relaxing” is probably the last word one would use to describe it.

The actual planning period can be a fast-paced process, and it’s hard to fully prepare — especially if it’s your first event.

But what if you could find a way to enjoy and remain stress-free about it from start to finish?

One option is to delegate. And by “delegate,” I mean let Kindt Events (808-6398; kindtevents.com) handle it.

And by “it,” I mean let Kindt do everything. Kindt Steven Myers is a local gentleman with a knack for putting together beautiful events.

“I will refer, procure, organize, order and manage every event professional needed for your event, to ensure a seamless and successful party from start to finish,” he said.

Myers specializes in social events and weddings, and his company will even plan your destination wedding.

If having a hand in the planning is important to you, then consider visiting Marianne’s Rentals (225 W. Britton; 751-3100). This is a one-stop shop. Rent a bar.

No, seriously. You can rent an actual structure to hold all your booze, down to trays and cake stands, as well as linens and glassware.

Marianne’s is a trusted name within the metro — a go-to party planning shop for 25 years.

You’ll need some food and drink to fill the dishes you just rented, right? Most liquor stores offer case discounts. Pop into Freeman Liquor Mart (4401 N. Western; 524-8031) for questions on pricing. Freeman’s has an excellent selection of wine and champagne — perfect for posh parties — and can special order whatever isn’t on hand.

Alcohol is easy, but food can be kind of tricky. You’ll likely have a few vegetarians and possibly a vegan to consider. Don’t forget many people are gluten-free!

Zorba’s Mediterranean Cuisine (6014 N. May; 947-7788) can alleviate the stress of finding and making recipes that work for everyone. Grab a tray of pita ($8), a pint of tabouli salad ($7) and a pint of its delicious hummus ($5.75) and you’ve got yourself a party. Include a tray of fresh-cut veggies for the gluten-conscious who can’t enjoy the pita or tabouli.

There’s more than one way to plan your party. Relax and have fun. Let’s shop, OKC!
