There are many holidays coming up where you might want to throw a party, from Easter to 4th of July, or even just to celebrate the beginning of summer vacation! Planning a party takes a lot of work but the experience doesn’t have to be nerve-wracking. Follow a few simple steps to have a stress-free party planning experience.
Keep it simple. Make a checklist and start planning early. You’ll want to get organized, creating to-do, shopping, and guest lists to make sure you have everything you need for your event. A themed party helps set the tone for the event and give you a focal point for shopping and decorating. Let your timeline decide whether to send invites by email or through the post office, making them as simple or as fancy as you like. For drinks, to save time and money you might set up a self-serve bar or trays of champagne as people enter the room. You can even plan a specialty cocktail to match your theme! To keep things simple you might choose to serve hors d’oeuvres in lieu of a sit-down dinner. If there will be children at your event consider setting up a separate table for them, including crayons, games, finger foods, and desserts. For a sit-down meal at your party, try to keep the table décor simple with colorful napkins or nature elements to give the table a visual pop. Schedule an hour before the party to give yourself time to place the finishing touches on everything before your guests arrive. And, of course, don’t forget to send your guests home with a fun favor!
