We’ve all been there – tasked with planning a party. Or, better yet, an office party. The planning process brings along the obvious checkpoints; the venue, the theme, the attendees, but what makes planning more of a daunting task are all of the details that will lend to an unforgettable, authentic event that will go off without a hitch.
We’ve put together a checklist to ensure you’ll keep your title of ultimate party planner.
Number 1. Budget. Before you even start to plan your event, be sure that you have a budget in place. You don’t want to deplete the entire budget before you get to the details.
Number 2. Make a Plan. Decide on the big things first – venue, theme, attendees. Then work your way to the details that will make the event memorable and unique. Menu, cocktails, team-building activities, décor are all things that will need to be worked out.
Number 3. Create a list. Yes, our checklist encourages you to create your own checklist. There are a lot of moving parts with party planning – a list will help keep you organized.
Number 4. Delegate. A good party planner has a good team to help execute. Assign specific tasks to people and ensure everyone is on the same page.
Number 5. Invites. Be sure to send out your invites with enough time for people to make necessary arrangements if need be. Include an RSVP date to ensure you have time to communicate final numbers to the venue.
You’re on your way to planning an office party your co-workers won’t forget. Once the planning is done – enjoy!
