Tip & How-To about Event Planning & Celebration

Party Supplies - Making a Basic List

If you are planning a party, don't get overwhelmed if you don't know what kind of supplies to buy.
Follow my advice and you can make a great party without overspending on supplies.

1. Decide what kind of party you want to have. Make a list of the people you want to invite and make sure you have a venue that is suitable for that number.

2. Don't get carried away! sometimes the best parties are the ones that are more personal and not huge.

3. Do you want to have a theme? Sometimes a theme can help you focus on the food and decorations. But even if you pick a theme you don't have to go crazy. A few small decorations and clever ideas can go a long way.

4. Write a menu. Include foods that can be prepared in advance and frozen and avoid fiddly dishes that will take a lot of preparation time on the day.

5. Make a list of supplies that you needs such as plates, napkins etc and stick to it when you go showing. A lot of expense can be saved if you don't shop impulsively.

6. When you decorate, ask friends if they have anything suitable to lend/ give you. It's a shame to buy if there are spare items going to waste.

7. Most importantly - enjoy!! parties are all about fun. keep it stress free and low key and then you'll be able to enjoy your own party.
