MGN Party Set Up SOP

Procedure#: HB SOP 102

Function: Management Policies

Implementation Date:10172

Policy/Purpose:  Several times throughout the year we will have parties at our Morganton location.  Each of these parties requires us to plan in advance for set up, as well as perform certain tasks in the days leading up to the party or the day of.  The following guides you through these special events.

 

Basic Decor Guidelines:  

  1. Look at pictures from the following year for guidance.  The previous year does not have to be followed 100% but it should be as good as, if not better than the previous year
  2. Never use tape to attach decorations to the wall, railing, ceiling, or any other object.  Tape causes us to repaint when decorations are removed and looks tacky.
  3. No extension cords for decor left for more than 3 days.  Extension cords are considered fire hazards.  In the case where we have live music, extension cords can be used, but must be taped, or matted to the floor so it is not a tripping hazard.
