Does the idea of planning a party have you stressed out? Trying to figure out where to even begin? Well if so, perhaps you should consider having a party planning party. While I’m sure this sounds like a tongue twister or play on words, the idea of having a party for planning a party might just be a fun way of getting a daunting task done.
A Party Planning Party Can Be Both Fun and Productive
For help with your task of planning a party why not consider getting a few of your close friends together (particularly those that are also going to be invited) for a few drinks and some casual food to discuss the ins and outs of your upcoming party. Basically you can call upon the strengths of your colleagues to help fill in areas where you think you’re going to need the most help. For example one of your friends might be very good atand might welcome the task of putting together an invitation and sending it out to mutual friends and following up.
A Party for Planning a Party Can Be an Impromptu Get-Together
You might already be used to getting together with friends on a Wednesday or Thursday evening to unwind and chat. Why not turn that Impromptu get-together into a little brainstorming session (especially if the same people will be coming to your party). Most people, when asked, do not mind offering their advice in the least. As a matter of fact most people enjoy giving their advice. So why not take them up on that. Over a glass of wine and snacks why not throw out some of your ideas and get feedback from the group. A word of caution – be prepared for that feedback as you may hear things that you won’t like.
Often when friends call upon us to help out we’re ready to go at a moment’s notice. So if you have the task of organizing a party consider asking a few friends and colleagues to participate. And make it fun such as an evening out with drinks and snacks. The one thing that we know is that our friends do not mind offering advice when asked (and many times when there are not asked). So why not use the occasion of a party to ask your friends and colleagues for their ideas and input as to what they think would make the party fun. There will be tasks that you literally hate to do. For those tasks I’m sure people within your circle would be more than happy to accommodate – so why not take advantage of that when planning your party.
