Organising your own party

Everybody loves a good party. It has to be good though, nobody wants to be remembered for throwing a lame one! Partying is easy when you’re the guest, but there’s a lot more at stake when it your party. Here are some helpful tips for throwing a stress-free and successful party:

Who doesn’t love a party?

  1. Work out what kind of party you want

There are so many different types of party that require a different approach. Is it going to be a …

  • Surprise party
  • Anniversary party
  • Housewarming party
  • Baby shower party
  • Engagement party
  • Costume party
  • Retirement party
  • Exam results party

Knowing how many people you can comfortably invite is another good thing to decide on at this point.

  1. Budget

As the host, most of the bill is on you unless you’re co-hosting. Work out how much you can comfortably afford to spend on invitations, party food, alcohol and soft drinks, seating, decorations and of course, music or entertainment. Be as thorough as you can so you don’t go grossly over-budget. Do you have any connections that mean you could benefit from a discount on any of the things you need?

  1. Choose a venue and date

Are you hiring a venue or staging the event at your home? There are loads of venues to choose, from halls and community centres to bars and restaurants. Find out if you require any special permits or licenses for where you want to hold the party. Choose an available date and pick the start and finish time of your event.

  1. Who to invite

How many people make it onto the guest list depends greatly on the size of your budget and the size of your chosen venue. Will you be posting paper invites or doing it via text or email? Think about the issue of plus ones and factor this into your numbers, as people don’t often want to attend a party alone. If you’re holding a house party, it’s always a good idea to invite the neighbours. That way they can’t complain about the possible noise and traffic disruption!

  1. Invitations

Make sure you include details of the date, time, location and your contact information for RSVPs. Give people plenty of time to respond. Now is also a great time to confirm bookings with venues, musicians, entertainment or catering, if you’ve booked these things.

  1. Preparation

As the day gets nearer, make a shopping list and hit the store. Always leave yourself more time than you think you need for setting up on party day. It’s always way better to have spare time than not enough of it and get stressed out. And there’s always that last-minute trip to the store for the essential item you’ve completely forgotten!
