Our 8 Easy Steps Event Planning Guide

1. We will align our event planning with your goals so that you can have a successful event. Know your purpose because certain events are about landing clients while others are about celebrating your special moment. And know your budget for food, beverage, decor, florals, gifts, favors, sweet stations, action stations with chefs, additional services, event planner, etc. We are a full service venue and can provide everything you need.

2. Know your audience! Plan your arrivals and departures for your event. During the planning stage, Bibi’z Restaurant | Lounge will assist with suggestions to planning your timeline leading up to your event.  We suggest coordinating all of your vendors and bringing all of your presentation materials, audio-visual tools, etc. on-site a few days in advance of your party.  This way, all you have to do is just get a drink and enjoy your party and guests!

3. For printed invitations, Bibi’z Restaurant | Lounge recommends Linda and Sharon at “You’re So Invited” here in Westwood.  They create fantastic designs to make your invitations, place cards and any other printed materials you may wish to have for your party look fantastic! You’ll want to begin by drafting a list of your event invitees, plus 1. This guest list will serve as a huge step forward in making sure your plan meets your expectations.

4. Hosting a corporate board meeting? A Lunch and Learn? A Financial Investment Seminar for Retirement Funds? Or a Pharmaceutical Educational Dinner Training? Bibi’z Restaurant | Lounge offers an elegant private dining room with four walls and a secure static IP address for privacy and sensitive information.  We offer the only fine dining private room in Westwood, New Jersey conveniently located near Hackensack University Medical Center at Pascack Valley and The Valley Hospital in Ridgewood, New Jersey.

8. Arrive at the restaurant at least 30-45 minutes ahead of the start time to check the set up and communicate any last minute details to our staff of professionals. As guests arrive, greet them and ensure that each guest finds their proper seat. Plan on approximately 20 to 45 minutes from the invitation time for everyone to arrive.

There’s nothing like a room filled with your friends that you’ve meticulously planned to entertain.
