3 Steps to the Perfect Party

1
Plan
Every party should start with a plan, so let’s get organized.

Set the Budget

Start with a budget of how much you want to spend. Knowing this upfront means less stress and more enjoyment for you and your guests.

Pick the Venue

This party works really well in an indoor area. Your space will dictate the activities and food you offer so try to decide on a location several weeks before your party.

Send Invites

Draft a guest list and send electronic invites several weeks before your event. Getting invites out early allows you to better plan for things like how much food you might need.

2
Prep
With the logistics down, start picking your decorations. Remember to try to shop for your supplies about 2 weeks before your event to allow time for shipping.
