Easy Party Planning: “Z” is for Zing

All parties have to come to an end. Including this one. Insert sad face here. We have had so much fun and hope you have had to.

Z is for zing. Because who wants to go to a party that is lame-o? Not us!  After all isn’t that what throwing parties is all about? Life would be so boring to not even celebrate the littlest of things.

Even if you aren’t throwing a huge party, find a simple small way to add zing to a celebration.


Do something at your party that creates emotion.  People will remember how they felt. This could be a unique game or activity. How about a pie eating contest? Or a toast? Something that breaks the barriers down will create that emotion and zing.


End your parties with a zing. You’re goal is to have your guests leave wanting more. You could create this with a sparkler send-off, a fun favor, or by announcing the winner of your guessing jar or other contest.

I loved this whole series! It’s hard to pick just one thing that I loved the most. I did love that you added that we need to make the event memorable! Now I will have to think of things to do to make everyone remember and want to come back!

Thanks so much!
And ps I shared it on Facebook
