Hosting an Easter Party
If you are having a party at your house, we have some few tips to make your life easier. Pop into Porter’s Liquor Northwood and speak to them about your drink requirements. They offer glasses, free delivery and you can return any of the alcohol you do not use (that has not been on ice and the labels are legible). They are so good at the party caper, that they can tell you how much each person will generally drink!!!!
If you need Easter Sunday catered, try out one of our caterers listed in our Business Directory. Chargrill Charlies is a good option for chicken and salads.
Want to make your party stylish – invite the team at Walkers Party Hire North Shore to help you out. Check out this groovy glow in the dark furniture. Perhaps you need a dance floor – no problems Walkers can help you.
