Party planning doesn’t have to be stressful. It can even be fun if you follow these simple steps graciously shared by party blog editor and event planner Camille Styles.
You want to get pretty organized if you want to be able to plan, create, and host a successful party without a hitch. Have a checklist and start at least one month prior to your party or event.
Have several lists and keep updating it as your event approaches and as you get things done. Have a list of supplies you’ll need, a guest list, and a to-do list. Your guest list should not only have your guests on it, but it should also include important information such as any dietary restrictions, RSVPs and contact information.
Decide on a theme and add embellishments and decorations that emphasize that theme. Don’t forget to send out those invites! Online invites should only be used for those spur of the moment get-togethers, but you should send out proper ones in the mail.
Offer a self-serve bar and greet guests with a glass of champagne. You should include at least one “specialty’ cocktail on your drink menu. A good rule of thumb is to plan to serve your guests one drink per hour.
Keep your appetizers simple and replace a large meal with a variety of appetizers. Toasted pita wedges with hummus or bruschetta make great and satisfying appetizers. Keep your place settings simple as well.
A kids table is a must if you’re expecting to have young guests. Have a separate table with fun things to do such as colored pencils and bright colors. Don’t forget the favors.
