Melbourne Cup Celebrations
Like most offices I’ve ever worked in, whenever it was Melbourne Cup day, we’d dip our eager hands into the hat and pull out a coupon of a horse praying for it to be the red hot favourite. Or at the very least pick out the roughie for your money back. Let’s face it: the office sweep is usually way better value than throwing $2.50 each way on your favourite colour.
Now with Black Caviar the pride of the nation and the interest in horse racing bigger than it’s ever been, a Melbourne Cup party is definitely in order for the first Tuesday in November. Meeting areas, warehouse spaces and almost any room can be converted into a viewing area.
That’s where party hire companies can help celebrate our nation’s greatest race with beer and champagne glasses, pie warmers, crockery and cutlery. We can deliver into the meeting room and pick up again next day so you won’t need the hassle of cleaning up.
The warehouse boys would be stoked if they had a BBQ for afternoon snags and market umbrellas for the outdoor areas. Under the shade, office staff can get those amazing tips for picking winners from the warehouse manager. Usually he will have an impressive knowledge of filling out those T.A.B. forms too. Bonus!
And for the die-hard race enthusiasts, why not hire a marquee for your own bird cage experience! It may seem a little OTT, but punters wouldn’t have it any other way. Decking out the space with chairs, tables and balloons, will make you forget that it really is a school night and really get into the spirit of the Cup.
Don’t you agree, if we can’t have a public holiday here in NSW, you can “bet” we have should have more Melbourne Cup parties! Correct weight.
