Showing up and enjoying a party is an easy thing (just show up, have a good time, eat good food, and leave). Organizing one is the hard part! What should you keep in mind when organizing a party?

1. Find out what type of party you are planning

  • There are different types of parties. Some of them include;
  • Birthday party
  • surprise party
  • Graduation ceremony
  • Anniversary party
  • Housewarming party
  • Get well soon party
  • Engagement party
  • Baby shower
  • Bridal shower
  • Block party
  • Bridal shower
  • farewell party
  • Retirement celebration
  • Costume party
  • Pool party etc.

Knowing the estimate of the people who will be attending the party is a good idea.

2. Decide on your budget

How much can you afford to spend on food, drink, invitation, table and seats, music and entertainment and decorations? It is important to be honest with yourself. The last thing you want is to be over budget when the party is over. Which of the points do you think is not so important?

3. Select the date, time, and location

Where is the party going to be? Your home, hotel, friend's house, banquet hall, office, pool, community center, place of worship or park? Do you need a license, permit, or do you book the venue before you have the party there? What day and at what time are you planning the party?

4. Who are the guests?

Use the venues and budget to confirm the number of people who will be on your guest list. How will you invite your guests? By phone, paper invitation, social media Application or a text? Are your guests allowed to invite others? If the party is on someone else's behalf, ask them to give you a list of the people they want to invite.

5. Send out invitations

What if you got organized and nobody came? For invitations, be sure to include the date, time, location, invitees, RSVP date, and instructions, contact information, and other notes. It's a good idea to send out the invitations a few weeks early to give them the option to clear their calendar.

6. Take and comply with other precautions

If the party needs additional arrangements such as entertainment and music, it is important to make and approve those arrangements. You need to pay close attention to the date, price, time and service.

7. Make a list of consumables when you shop

Some of the supplies you will need must be included; Drinks, food, drinks (don't forget ice cream), place settings, decorations, furniture, etc. You should buy non-perishable goods first, and then buy the perishable goods when the day comes.

8. A head start in setting up

You have to give yourself a lot of time because it will save you a lot of stress. People underestimate the time it will take to start the party. It is better to have too much time than too little. You have extra time to spend on food and drink, decorations, and music and entertainment as these usually take longer than expected. There are times when you find that you need to take a trip to the store because you forgot something. This is what happens and therefore you should give yourself extra time.

9. It's party time

You've put in a lot of effort, now it's time to have fun. Make sure you get it huge confetti cannons for large events. Greet guests, drink, enjoy food, conversation, dancing and the company of each other.
