3 Steps to the Perfect Party

1
Plan
Follow Katie Brown’s expert guidance and kick off your planning early.

Set the Budget

To create this traditional Thanksgiving, start by setting a budget for your event. Knowing this upfront means less stress down the line and more enjoyment for you and your guests.

Pick the Venue

This party works really well in an indoor dining area. Your space will dictate the activities and food you offer, as well as the decorations you will need, so try to do this 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 find out about any dietary restrictions your guests might have.

Prep
Start by reviewing what decorations you have and what you need. Remember to try to shop for your supplies about 3 weeks before your event to allow time for shipping.
