The New Wife Trials; The Birthday Of A Spouse

Before you got married, whenever you thought of the first year of your wedded life, you’d probably imagined it to have been all hearts and roses. Then the initial few weeks (or even months!) probably went this way. But then you had to deal with reality; with adjusting to living with someone (if you already didn’t), with probably leaving your job; and mostly, you had to deal with being a wife. And then the birthday of your spouse rolls in.

Now it’s up to you to decide if you’re going to make it a private celebration, or invite all your friends for a huge birthday bash. Or you could do both! If you’ve chosen to make it a private celebration, then no doubt you’ve got a lot of cute and naughty ideas lined up; after all, it is your sweetie’s birthday. But if you’ve decided to have a party, and you don’t know how to go about doing it; then perhaps we can be of help.

Since we don’t know what kind of party you plan on throwing, we’ve put in a few general tips—and hopefully these will help you out.

Have a fun theme for it

This is the easiest way to make your party hop. From adult dress up parties, to even masquerade (if it’s something that you both enjoy, that is), you can let your imagination run. It could be anything; just make sure that it’s something all your friends and his friends will enjoy.

The party food

Don’t sweat too much about this. There are many catering in Canberra that’ll be more than happy to take over this task. Remember to tell them your theme, if you have one, so that they can prepare the food to match it.

The birthday boy’s cake

Now that the birthday catering service is handling the food, you can concentrate on the cake. Depending on the type of party you’re organizing, you can make it elegant or as funky as you want. Remember, it’s something the birthday boy should enjoy especially; or what’s the point?

The music for the party

If you’re not too sure about the kind of music your husband will enjoy (girl, pull out your detective skills!), then perhaps you can get the help of your husbands friends. Also, ask them if they can play the role of a DJ for the party. Get your guests dancing with their help.

The decorations

Keep it simple, if you’re going the DIY way that is. If this is the first time that your (mutual) friends are coming over, they’ll probably want to see your digs more than the decorations anyway. Or if you feel this is a little too simple for such a special party, get the help of a decorating service, or comb the internet for a few fun decorating ideas.

Most of all, remember to relax and have fun; and enjoy your moment together!


Advantages Of Office Coffee Supply Companies

There is an unwritten rule that there must be coffee in any office. However, the price of buying a respectable coffee machine and stocking it makes the going tough for business owners and office managers. Coffee keeps people active and gives them the chance to unwind and catch up for the few minutes spent at the dispensers. Coffee is also a universal drink; taken during both the cold and hot season. Coffee services companies have recognized these facts and are now providing offices with coffee and saving employers a lot of time and money. They supply coffee to the office at specific times during the day, and take care of the brewing, preparation and service. Here are some advantages of hiring a coffee services company.

Providing employees with coffee in the office improves their satisfaction with the workplace. It is a gesture of appreciation for the work they are doing, and makes them feel valued and appreciated. In most businesses, the coffee is available to both the employees and the clients. This makes them feel positive about the business. Research has shown that coffee improves the morale of the workforce, reduces stress and therefore improves the general productivity of the business.

Instead of having to buy commercial coffee machines, the coffee services companies bring coffee to the workplace. They save the employer money, by eliminating the cost of buying a new machine, constantly stocking it and maintaining it. Any decent coffee maker will cost a few hundred dollars. Having coffee services saves the company from any of these expenditures.

Apart from the expenditure on commercial coffee machines in Melbourne, another importance of having these coffee service provider is the time savings. They not only deliver coffee to the office, but serve it to the clients in the waiting rooms and to the employees at their desks. The employees can have their breaks without having to move up and down to the other end of the office to access the coffee maker. Coffee maker gossip is the source of a lot of time wasting in the office. With the employees being served coffee at their desks, nothing distracts them away from productive work.

In offices that otherwise would not have served their employees coffee, the employees themselves are saved a lot of money. They no longer have to order their favorite drinks from the shops outside, or have to go all the way to the streets below to get coffee. Most of these companies supply everything one might require with their coffee. They have sugar, cream and sweeteners, stirrers, snacks and other beverages.

For those who work outdoors, these companies often can provide a variety of drinks. Instead of buying that frozen drink machine or splashing money on slush machine hire, a company like this can provide those cool refreshing drinks to employees and clients in the field on a hit sunny day. The intangible benefits on the employees leave them feeling motivated and appreciated. On the other hand, their employer gets to save on purchasing the coffee machine and its supplies, and repairing, maintaining or replacement.
