Party planning can be fun and hassle-free with the guidance and advice of an event planner who will offer creative ideas to keep everything under control.
Event planner and party blog editor, Camille Styles shared her top ten tips for a stress free party. She emphasized any party can be carried out effortlessly by starting early and staying organized.
A party check list starting from one month before the party to one hour before is vital. For example, one month before the date, time and place should be decided on as well as the overall budget and theme.
One hour before the party set out party snacks and light candles to enhance the atmosphere.
Another tip involves making quite a few lists, such as shopping list and guest list, that can be updated throughout the planning process.
Guests can take pleasure in an imaginative theme, such as a south-of-the-border fiesta theme where margaritas are served.
Sending out mail invitations can establish a particular mood for the party while setting up a kids’ table will make it easier for them to enjoy themselves. And a self-serve bar lets the adults have fun inventing their own potions.
On the subject of food, a possible plan might be to serve simple appetizers rather than a full meal. Guests will enjoy various cocktail snacks, such as buffalo wings, stuffed mushrooms or spinach dip.
And while keeping the food simple it is also a good idea to keep the settings simple, such as tying tableware with a ribbon or fabric.
A wonderful way to bring the festivities to an end is to pass along a party favor, perhaps homemade baked goods or sweets.
