The more organized you are for a party, the better and more fun it will be for you! Here are our favorite ways to stay organized when it comes to planning and throwing a party:
1. Make a list. Even if you aren’t a list person, write every single detail down. Write down everything you can possibly think you will need. And we are talking everything! Tape, string, balloons, beverages, etc. You may already have most of it, but still write it down. Use paper, a notebook, or your phone. It doesn’t matter where your list is, just make one!
2. Make a timeline of when everything should be done. In an ideal situation when you have a few weeks before your party, a sample timeline could look like this:
-10 days before- send out invites
-5 days before- buy groceries and other party supplies
-1 day- set up chairs, tables, and decorate
-day of: prepare food, chill beverages, set-out last-minute items.
3. Set aside all of your party decorations in a box as you get it. Then when it comes to decorating, everything will be together and you can do it much quicker.
