I’d like to share a few party planning tips with you, whether you intend to celebrate your child’s birthday, have a house warming, or a bridal shower at home. These are just a few guidelines you can follow to make sure that you and your guests will have a blast on the day of the celebration.
1. Plan in advance.
You should give yourself enough time to plan for the party regardless of the number of guests and the grandeur of the occasion. Remember that having a party concerns not only you. Your goal is to please your guests, and you do not want to disappoint them because you did not exert the littlest time and effort to plot out what you need to do and how you’ll get them done.
If it’s a pretty big party at home you’re having, with at least 50 guests, I suggest that you plan at least two to three months in advance. Give yourself more time, at least six months perhaps, if it’s going to be a really important event like a Christening, since you’ll probably want to have souvenirs made and make sure that the caterer’s available on the day of your booking.
2. Make a guest list.
A very crucial part of planning your party is writing down and counting the names of your guests. It is only when you know exactly whom you want to invite that you can send out the word about the glorious event that’ll take place.
