With so many details to worry about, there’s no denying that planning a party can be stressful. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed when you’re juggling a lot of things at once. However, there’s no need to fret! Here are some ways to plan a party with ease.
- Get and Stay Organized: If you’re trying to remember your checklist of things to do, you’re bound to forget a task or two and get frazzled. Make organized to-do lists for each aspect of the party – food, decorations, invites, etc. – so you never forget a detail and can cross off tasks as you complete them.
- Send Out Invites Early: Nothing can cause you stress quite like guests saying they received their invitations too late to make arrangements to come to your event. Send out your party invites early enough to give guests time to coordinate their own attendance, especially if they’re coming in from out of town.
- Offer a Self-Serve Bar: Surprisingly enough, a stressful part of party planning is hoping that your bartender makes drinks the way your guests like them. If you have a self-serve bar, your guests can make their own drinks with as light or heavy of a hand as they like. Everyone has their favorite drinks, so everyone’s happy.
- Stay Calm: When the big day comes, don’t spend every hour leading up to the event worrying if everything is in place. Whether you take a bubble bath or pour yourself a yummy cocktail to relax, be ready to greet guests with a smile.
As the host, you set the tone for your party. If you feel relaxed, so will your guests. A great way to stay calm while party planning is by employing some help. The expert party planners at Italian Center Banquets can help you coordinate every detail of your party to make it a night to remember.
