Party Planning in Lawrenceville, NJ
"Thank you so very much for your help and that of Brandon's last Friday. The recommendations you made for the 'Sangria at Sunset' party we hosted worked very well. The Sangria was a hit! Your patience and attention were greatly appreciated. In an ever increasingly competitive environment, this type of customer service will continue to set you guys apart. Thank you again!" ~Diane
Planning a party or other event can be stressful, but Joe Canal's has everything you need to make preparation easy. We have planned many parties over the years and can help with any type of event.
How to Prepare
There are several things to consider when party planning—first and foremost, the location. If you’re hosting your party at a bar, you must factor in the price of the venue and decide whether or not it will be an open bar. If you’re hosting the event yourself, you need to stock enough alcohol for your guests and decide whether or not to hire bartenders. Preparing pre-cut fruit garnishes about an hour beforehand will help save time. To make drink selection easy for your guests, prepare sample beverages and place them on ice right before the guests arrive.
Depending on the season or crowd, the type of beverages appropriate for an event can greatly vary. Joe Canal's has an extensive selection of liquor, wine, and beer at competitive prices. Use our calculator below to figure out how much liquor, wine, and beer you will need, depending on the size of the event. Then, you can do an online pickup order on our website, or stop in and speak to a member of our staff if you need assistance. Joe Canal's has all of your party planning supplies in one convenient location, which saves you both time and money.
Our store is conveniently located so you can focus on your party and not the errands. We make your shopping simple, and you can view all of the spirits we carry online. This makes it even easier to prepare a list beforehand. If you have any questions, our knowledgeable staff can answer questions and help fix any last minute problems that may arise.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The following chart provides two common bottle sizes (for most items shown below) with regard to the suggested amount of liquor that is recommended, based on the number of people/guests. Shown below are the suggested amounts in 1 Liter bottle and 1.75 Liter bottle sizes for most liquor items and other suggested sizes for wine, champagne and beer. Under each column (for the number of people/guests) you'll see two numbers; the first number represents the number of bottles recommended if purchasing 1 Liter-sized bottles. The second number, in BOLD, represents the number of bottles recommended if purchasing 1.75 Liter-sized bottles.
