3 Steps to the Perfect Party

1
Plan
No need to stress, just follow the steps to plan your party like a pro!

Set the Budget

Start with a budget of how much you want to spend. Knowing this upfront means less stress and more enjoyment for you and your guests.

Pick the Venue

This party is ideal for an indoor setting, like a living room or dining area. Your space will dictate the activities and food you offer, so try to do this several weeks before your party.

Send Invites

Draft a guest list and send electronic invites several weeks before your event. Getting invites out early allows you to better plan for things like how much food you might need.

Prep
Next up: buying supplies and starting to prep for the party. Remember to try to shop for your supplies about 3 weeks before your event to allow time for delivery.
