Planning for a party can be either fun or stressful depending on how you go about it. Here are some smart guidelines for planning the ultimate party from a professional party planner.
Keep to-do lists that take everything into consideration: things to buy, tasks to do at the venue, and a contact list for your guests as well as their dietary preferences. This is the best way to eliminate the confusion of planning a party.
Guests are always at the core of planning a party. As such, keep your guest list updated and invite everyone on the list. Get creative and design chic invitation cards; you may also get old-school and send mail invites to create excitement among the guests.
Set up a self-service bar
Guests have varying tastes and preferences when it comes to drinks. As such, it is wise to have a self-service bar where guests can mix their own concoctions. However, you should also create a specialty concoction that will leave a memorable buzz in your guests.
Serve simple, delicious appetizers
Sit-down meals are not only formal for many parties but also complex. As such, consider serving simple appetizers on trays for a more informal approach. Make sure there are a variety of delicious bites to stir the guests’ appetite and keep them satisfied.
If there are kids among the guests, then set a separate table just for them with a variety of delicious appetizers and beverages.
Keep calm and stay relaxed
Everyone wants to set up the perfect party, and this often causes anxiety among party planners. However, anxiety is one of the greatest obstacles to the perfect party. As such, try to stay relaxed throughout the planning process, and keep the setting simple; the best way to come up with an ideal setting is to have a definite theme.
It would be a shame for your guests to leave empty-handed; after all, gifts are a great token of affection. As such, have simple gifts wrapped in pretty boxes for your guests as they leave.
