Parties are exciting and fun, however, the planning component is quite the opposite! There are a number of things to consider when planning to ensure your party is an absolute success! Many people believe that the only element of party planning is the guest list and supplying enough food, but that’s just a small component of the entire pre-party planning process. Party planning will ultimately save you time, money and allow you to focus on enjoying yourself during your birthday celebration.
If you’re ready to start planning and preparing for your next party with friends or family, check out the following comprehensive guide for the pre-planning party essentials.
1. Choose The Theme
When planning your birthday party, it’s crucial to determine whether or not you want a theme. If you decide on a theme, you want each party detail to correspond with it. This includes everything from the party invitations to decorations, costumes and even the food. Some themes may take more brainstorming and planning than others. Theme possibilities are endless and allow your creative side to really shine through. Some of the most common and popular themes include:
- Throwback party
- PJ party
- Hollywood glamour
- Vegas theme
- Black and white theme
If you can’t decide on a theme and need some inspiration, Dina’s Party Supplies in Toronto can help you come up with the perfect idea to transform your celebration.
2. Create A Budget
As tempting as it may be to splurge on the decorations and food, it’s imperative to set a budget to stay on track and manage the planning more effectively. When making the birthday party budget, think about how much you want to spend ideally and what to spend it on. Most planning budgets need to allocate for:
- Party invitations
- Food and cake
- Alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages
- Gift or loot bags
- A party venue
3. Book A Venue
If you’re choosing to book a commercial place to host your party, it’s important to plan this out beforehand and ensure it fits within your budget. This can also dictate other elements of the planning, such as the number of guests you can have within the space, the entertainment and the duration of the party. If this is not suitable for your budget, opt to have the party at your own home and spend the money on decorations, food, and invitations. If the weather is warm enough and you want to host the party outdoors, ensure you have the proper furnishings, including enough chairs and tables for guests to use.
