Who would have thought a party planner would garner so much attention. This past weekend I helped out a friend by being her designated total party planner during her open house gala. And when the guests heard that I am an event planner by trade. All I could say is let the onslaught of questions begin. In between my self-assigned tasks of taking care the whole kit and caboodle. That included all things house and home, food and beverage and really basically everything needed day of party wise. I spent a good amount of time answering all sorts of party planner and how to become a party planner questions. Guests were definitely intrigued, go figure.
What’s a Party Planner to do?
Some may not agree; but if you ask me, a big chunk of the party fun lies in the organizing. Bringing your imagination, taste and flair to the table. But for some just hearing the words party planner instills a great deal of fear and stress. And I really do get it. Any kind of party requires a lot elbow grease as well as details, details and you guessed it details. Pulling together the four W’s; the why, what, where and who. And then most importantly what remains is the HOW. Taking all those never-ending party details and creating and then executing a plan.
It’s all about the Party Planner Checklist
By the time the party date arrives the host wants to be relaxed, set and ready to go. So what’s a party planner to do? When it comes to the planning; the invites, decor, entertainment, menu and so much more, a party planning checklist will save the day. A party checklist is one of the better planning support systems around; a one stop planning experience if you will. A to-do list, budget, timetable, shopping list and due dates all rolled into one. The ultimate user friendly way to plan, oversee and control your party responsibilities. And before you know it, you’ll be on your way to having fun at your unforgettable party.
