In terms of parties, it is not the same to be invited as the one who invites. Only those who have gone through organizing a party know the pressure that this role exerts. Something that at the beginning seems so simple (drinks, food, music and other) requires a series of essential steps to follow with your checklist in hand, extra dose of organization and time, a lot of time. If you’re not a born hostess, but you have to debut, be patient and make sure you have lots of energy. The race to organize the perfect party has already begun and your mission is to make it the best event of all times.
Choose a theme.
Types of parties there are hundreds (baby showers, birthdays, commemorative, movie themed, 80’s, masquerade …) and you must find the one that best fits with yours. Once you have it, everything will revolve around it: the decoration, the costumes, and the catering. Every part of the party must go with the chosen theme. You can always find inspiration and some help by searching on Instagram or Pinterest.
Set a budget.
From this game the magnitude and scope of the party is determined. If it is a small event or if its going to be a big party. Start by figuring out a budget for the event. This is key to choose the catering, venue, and decorations. Once you have your budget you’ll have to pick from your options for catering (will you do homemade or will you opt for experts), music (with a speaker or will you hire a DJ), etc.
Pick a good location.
This is one of the key decisions for success and it depends directly on the number of guests. You can not put 150 people in a room of 50 square meters, or 10 children in a large house full of dangerous objects. If you choose your own home, make sure that your guests will be comfortable at all times, and if you prefer to rent a space, consider the type of people who will be attending.
The guest list.
Here you have to be smart and gather like-minded people with similar tastes if the party is small, or otherwise open your hand and invite all your friends and acquaintances if it’s a huge party. What is clear is that you must invite your guests with enough time to avoid being left alone after so many preparations.
And finally … have fun !.
The day has arrived, your guests begin to show up and, of course, everything is in order! You just have to enjoy the moment, without forgetting to about attending your guests so that everyone has a good time and enjoy the unforgettable moments. If everything goes well, you’ll be asked to organize another party.
