Parties are a great way to celebrate special occasions, they do require a lot of planning and preparation, but the rewards are great. To organise a party you need a party planner, to make sure nothing is forgotten.

The first thing to do is to decide party goals.

6–8 weeks before the party

Set a budget.

Choose the type of party

Select a theme

Decide on the date, time, and place.

Make reservations for facilities, caterers, photographers, and other service providers.

Prepare a guest list with addresses and phone numbers.

Make or purchase invitations.


3–4 weeks before the party

Address and mail invitations.

Plan food and beverages to serve.

Arrange for extra help, such as a bartender, cook, server, or babysitter.

Think about supplies you’ll need, such as extra chairs, dishes, and napkins.

Order flowers.

Think about what you’ll wear to the party. Try the outfit on to ensure that it fits and is in good condition


1–2 weeks before the party

Call to confirm all orders and extra help

Create an attending guest list from the RSVPs you received.


The day before the party
Clean your home or garden.

Set out supplies and dishes for the party.

Check out your furniture arrangement and general decor. Move any items that are breakable or in the way.

Create a time chart for the day of the party and list tasks with their estimated completion times. This is helpful for anyone who is helping with the final party setup and preparation.

Front Door Greeter: For a large party, such as an open house, have someone assist guests as they arrive, take coats and gifts, and have guests sign the guest book.

Food and Beverages: Arrange for a caterer and servers or ask someone to help with food and beverage preparation and refilling items as they are consumed.

Activity Director: Enlist the aid of an outgoing friend to make introductions, encourage circulating and mingling, and coordinate sports and other activities.
