There is no better way to celebrate the joyous occasions of life than with a party. Planning and hosting a party might seem a daunting and overwhelming task but with a positive attitude and an array of party planning tips, you can make your party successful without being stressful.
The five W’s of who, what, when, where, and why are not only to be regarded as the basics in journalism but also form the foundation of hosting a successful party. This goes a long way in planning for your party. Sit down with a pen and paper and ask yourself the following questions and jot down the answers,
Why are you going to celebrate it?
Who will be your guests?
What will be the party like?
When is the party?
Where is the party?
As you come with step-by-step details that you need for the party, prepare a mental tally of the costs and go for a set budget; vow that you would not go beyond it.
Early bird catches the worm
After you reach a decision as to the why, who, what, when and where of the party, do not postpone things up until three days before the party. Start the work at least two to three weeks in advance. Decide who is going to cook, you or a caterer? If you want caterers, book them well in advance. Sit down with them and decide upon a good menu. You might need chairs, tables, tents, coat racks, linens, etc; contact a party rental company like the Brooklyn, NY area All Affairs Chair and Rental long before the date of the party.
Relax while you get ready
Since professionals start working for you days ahead of the party, you can relax and concentrate on the finer aspects of hosting a party that need your personal touch.
