Ways to Make Your Party Planning Easier

Are you in the process of planning a party? There’s so much to do, isn’t there? It can get a bit overwhelming, and when it does, things start to slip through the cracks. The good news is, aside from hiring an event planner, there are plenty of ways to make your party planning that much easier. Below are just a few of our best suggestions.

1. Get Caterers

Why spend hours slaving away when you can hire professional catering in Melbourne to take over the burden for you? Planning, shopping for, and preparing food is easily the most time-consuming part of any party preparation. If you’re doing it yourself, it just takes time and energy away from other parts of your party planning process that badly need your attention.

In addition to the time and energy saved, you also end up with a more consistent and pleasing quality in food when you leave it to the professionals. If you’re hurrying to put food together yourself, standards can suffer. Tell the pros what you need, and they can get it done in a flash, even catering to all special dietary requirements.

2. Enlist Helpers

They do say that two heads are better than one, and when it comes to party planning, that’s certainly the case. In fact, three, four, or even five heads are better than one when arranging a big birthday party, anniversary or some other event. When you can reach out for help, you can get more done. If you’re a bit of a control freak and don’t like the idea of delegating the most important tasks, then the good news is that you don’t have to!

For instance, let’s say that you want more time to focus on finding the perfect venue, or choosing a band to play. How about leaving other details such as buying party supplies and snacks from the grocery store to a friend or other family member? Small things are easy to delegate, since there’s little risk of anything going wrong, and it leaves you more time to focus on the things that matter to you.

3. Start Planning Early

The earlier you start planning, the faster you can make decisions and thus the less stress over time that you feel. What’s more, when you start planning early, you can be more prepared for if and when things go wrong, leaving yourself a healthy time cushion to absorb shocks and deal with crises as they emerge. On top of that, you give yourself more choice when you start planning earlier: more caterers are available, more venues are free, and your prospective guests likely don’t have prior engagements.

4. Avoid Rigid Themes

Some people are dead set on the idea that a party needs a theme, but this just isn’t the case. Certain occasions call for a possible theme, such as a Halloween party or a New Year’s Eve party. However, you shouldn’t be one of those people that assumes all good parties have a theme. It’s not true.

One good thing about avoiding rigid themes is that it makes it much easier and more relaxed for your guests to attend. When you have an inflexible theme, many guests will just stress about how they can fit in with that theme. Making it either optional, or something very open that people can easily dress for — e.g., a “red and black” theme, everyone can get something red and/or black to wear for a party — you make your party more attractive

5. Get RSVPs Earlier By Using the Best Channels

Finally, if you want to be sure to get quick RSVPs from your guests so you can work out numbers for food, drink and whatnot, then send your invites through channels people will see. Send them through Facebook, WhatsApp, Messenger, or other apps where you frequently connect with people. If not that, then make use of a dedicated RSVP tool that will help you organise better.
