3 Steps to the Perfect Party

1
Plan
No need to stress, just follow the steps to plan your party like a pro!

Set the Budget

Kick your planning off by setting a budget for your event, including food and drink. Knowing this upfront means less stress down the line and more enjoyment for you and your guests.

Pick the Venue

This party is ideal for an indoor setting, like a living room or dining area. Your space will dictate the activities and food you offer, so try to do this several weeks before your party.

Send Invites

Draft a guest list and send paper invites about 4 weeks before your event. Have guests RSVP so you can better plan for food and party setup.

Prep
Now on to the shopping and crafting! Remember to try to shop for your supplies about 3 weeks before your event to allow time for delivery.
