OK, the first couple of paragraphs self explanatory to cover party planning. Just skip to Six Week Check Up if you have lists, budges and ideas already!
It’s simple to organising a basic party – but turning it into a great party now that’s a different thing all together!
Basics: Food. Drinks. Location. Entertainment. Music That’s all you need to throw a party.
But depends on key factors
Food & Drink
Food & Drink always important, this echos the above, are you having a sit down formal party or buffet style or canapes? This is where you can really add something different, you don’t have to do boring standard food, be creative there are a wide selection of buffet styles and different food to sample.
This will be determined by what kind of party you’re hosting. If you want people to dance, a DJ or band will be required or maybe both.
Once you have your guest list, date & venue sorted, create a Facebook group and tell all your family & friends.
