Whether you're planning a birthday bash, a holiday soirée, or a casual get-together with friends, these basic party planning tips will help you navigate the ins and outs of hosting with ease, and, bonus, you'll feel like a hosting pro!

Our No-Fail Party Planning Tips

Start Early: Give yourself plenty of time to plan by starting early. Create a checklist of everything you need to do, from choosing a date and sending out invitations to organizing food and entertainment.

Set a Budget: Determine how much you're willing to spend-and stick to it (easier said than done, we know). Set aside funds for essentials like food, drinks, decorations, and entertainment, and look for ways to save money without sacrificing quality.

Choose a Theme: A theme adds fun and cohesion to your party. Whether it's a tropical luau, a retro roller skating party, or a sophisticated dinner party, pick a theme that reflects the vibe you want to create and carry it through in your decorations, food, and attire. 

Plan the Menu: Consider your guests' preferences and dietary restrictions when planning the menu. Opt for a mix of easy-to-eat finger foods, appetizers, and drinks that cater to different tastes. If appropriate, you may ask your guests about any dietary restrictions beforehand so you can be accommodating (for example, if you're planning a child's birthday party, ask parents about any food allergies beforehand).

Keep It Simple: Don't overwhelm yourself with complicated recipes or elaborate decorations. Stick to simple dishes that can be prepared in advance and choose easy DIY decorations that make a big impact without requiring a lot of time or effort. We recommend having your party decor delivered right to your door to avoid running from store-to-store hunting for those perfect touches.

Delegate Tasks: Don't be afraid to ask for help. Assign tasks to friends or family members to help with setup, food preparation, or cleanup so you can focus on hosting the party for your guests.

Create Ambiance: Set the mood with lighting, music, and decorations. Use string lights, candles, or lanterns to create a warm and inviting atmosphere, and choose a playlist of upbeat tunes that will keep the energy high throughout the night.

Provide Entertainment: Keep your guests entertained with games, activities, or a dance floor. Consider setting up a photo booth with props, hosting a trivia or karaoke contest, or hiring a DJ or live band to keep the party going.

Offer Refreshments: Keep your guests hydrated and satisfied with a variety of drinks and snacks. Set up a self-serve bar with a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, and have plenty of water and non-alcoholic options available for designated drivers and non-drinkers.

Say Thank You: Show your appreciation to your guests for attending by thanking them personally before they leave or sending out thank-you notes after the party. A little gratitude goes a long way in making your guests feel valued and appreciated. We keep plenty of unique items in stock that make the perfect party favors.
