How to Plan a Birthday Party
Most of us aren’t professional party planners, but that doesn’t mean when you’re having a party, you can’t throw a great birthday party with a few party planning tips!
Whether you’re planning a first birthday, a spa party or anything in between, there are some basic steps that you’ll need to follow to make sure that the party goes off without a hitch.
Follow this birthday party list to help you plan a great event:
1. Pick a date and time for the party. You’ll want to make sure that you pick a day and time that works well for both you and your guests. Take into account things like work, school and other activities that might conflict with the party.
2. Choose a venue. Once you have a date and time set, it’s time to start thinking about where the party will be held. If you’re having a small party, your home might be the best option. But if you’re expecting a larger crowd, you’ll need to look into renting a space.
3. Send out invitations. Once you have all the details worked out, it’s time to let your guests know about the party. You can either hand-deliver the invitations or send them out via email or snail mail.
4. Plan the food and drinks. No party is complete without food and drinks! Start thinking about what you’ll serve your guests. If you’re on a budget, finger foods and simple appetizers are always a good option.
5. Choose decorations. Decorations are optional, but they can really help set the mood for the party. If you’re stuck for ideas, try doing a quick search online or looking through party supply stores.
6. Pick activities. Depending on the age of your guests, you’ll want to have some activities planned for the party. This could be anything from playing party games to watching a movie.
7. Get supplies. Once you have all the details worked out, it’s time to start shopping for party supplies. Make sure you get enough plates, cups, napkins, etc. for all of your guests.
8. Decorate. If you’re having the party at your home, now is the time to start decorating. Put up some streamers, balloons and other decorations to really get your guests into the party spirit.
9. Set up for the party. A few hours before the party is set to start, make sure everything is ready to go. Set out the food, drinks, plates, cups, etc. so that everything is easy to find.
10. Enjoy the party! The big day is finally here! Take a deep breath and enjoy yourself. After all, it’s your party!
