Graduation season is fast approaching, and proud families everywhere are planning events to commemorate the scholastic success of their high school and college seniors.
How can you plan a truly special graduation party at Quail Hollow? We asked our Director of Events and Marketing, Carly Kennedy, and she laid out some of the primary reasons that parents should opt for a poolside event at Quail Hollow.
No-Fuss Parties where Parents can Enjoy Themselves
Graduation parties tend to be held at someone’s home or in the neighborhood park. In either case, this means a lot of work for the parents. Tables and chairs must be rented, everything has to be set up and broken down, the house has to be cleaned for company, tons of food needs to be cooked, and the parking situation must be addressed.
In short, Kennedy notes, these parties can be overwhelming. “The perk for the parents is that it’s a no-fuss party,” says Kennedy. “They get to show up & it’s completely set up, the food is there, and then they leave as soon as it’s over. If they come to Quail Hollow, though, everything is done for them and they get to actually just enjoy the party with their guests.
Poolside Fun (with a Back-up Plan)
During the spring and summer, swimming pools and sunshine translate to endless entertainment for teens and young adults. To this end, Quail Hollow features a pair of Vegas-style swimming pools, luxury cabanas, and spacious patios for your event.
In case weather becomes an issue, there’s also a contingency plan in place.
“We always hold a backup space indoors as a rain plan,” explains Kennedy. “It’s a luxury for grad-style parties, which usually are just held outdoors.”
Group Parties Make for Affordable Events
Since your teen probably will be partying with other classmates, group events make a lot of sense. “Some groups of parents these days are having ‘group parties’ whether it’s a couple of kids in the same family or in a circle of friends,” says Kennedy. “All the parents pitch in to have the party together.”
Quail Hollow welcomes this type of event, because it makes for larger and more affordable parties. “It’s a win-win situation for everyone,” Kennedy adds.
Endless Options for Customization
Parents are able to customize their event however they want, whether they want to schedule a DJ or a band, or bring in fun games. You also can bring in decorations to add a personalized touch to the party, and you have the option of bringing in your own cake. Alternatively, Quail Hollow can set up a full dessert or candy bar spread for guests to enjoy. In other words, the possibilities are virtually endless.
Just keep in mind that your timeframe for booking space at the club is limited. “The sooner you book, the more likely you’ll be able to get the date or weekend you want,” explains Kennedy. “We have limited availability in the spring, and going into summer, we’re starting to get filled now too.”
