When planning a party, here are some useful party tips to follow to ensure the success of the event.
- Carefully select the party venue. If you are expecting a lot of guests, your house may not accommodate them. You may also have a problem with parking. So unless you are going to hold a small party, find a venue that can accommodate your guests.
- Rent the party venue. Make sure the location matches the theme of your party. For example, if you are going to host a party with an animal theme, inquire about the possibility of holding the party in or near a zoo.
- Invite your guests as early as possible. Refrain from last minute invitations. Your guests have to be informed of the time, place and directions to the party must be very clear. As much as possible when renting a venue, make sure the site is convenient for your guests to reach. Scheduling your party on a weekend is best.
- Decorate the party place accordingly. Make sure the decoration is nicely done. Make sure seating arrangements for the guests are properly marked to avoid confusion and embarrassing moments.
- While doing the party preparation, write down every thing on a notebook so you can refer to your notes and check off those you have accomplished and those that still need to be done. Make sure the food list is complete including ingredients and condiments.
- Prepare the guest list, list of gifts, decorative items in advance. Last minute, unplanned purchases will surely get you in trouble. It is recommended that you write down your list of things to do because you will definitely forget some essential items.
- To make the party a great success, have games and ice breakers. Give simple prizes for the winners of parlor games and do not forget the camera to freeze the funny moments for posterity. Do not forget to give the gifts to your guests before they leave.
