Party planning can be fun, exhausting, expensive, and a daunting task, all in one. Let DealDash help you with some party planning tips.
Do you find party planning to be more fun or more stressful? Many people go through the “last minute” school of party planning and have felt the pressure of trying to show everyone a good time. Depending on the type of party you are planning, a little chaos might be a good thing! However, if a fancy dinner party is more your style, then chaotic fun probably isn’t on your agenda.
What do I mean by “pre-planning”? Here are the things that you should be thinking about before you really start your party planning.
- Guest list
How much are you willing to spend on this party? If you’re having this party for a special person such as a mother or grandmother, consider asking your other siblings or cousins to help you throw this party of offset some of the expense. If you’re doing this all on your own, then you should try to cut costs where you can.
You can help cut costs by bidding on DealDash. You can win things on DealDash that can help you throw your party such as kitchenware, decorations, and more.
Where will you be having this party? If it’s nice weather out, consider having it at a local park or picnic area. That way it will save you tons of time on clean-up. If that’s not an option you can use your home for a smaller party or rent out a room for a larger party. Your local VFW hall or church would be excellent places to start if you’re looking for an affordable party space.
Who are you inviting to your party? If it’s a kid’s party be sure to either invite all of the classmates or less than half of the classmates. You wouldn’t want anyone to feel like they are the only person who wasn’t invited to the party! When it comes to inviting relatives to the party, be sure to make a list so you don’t forget Great Aunt Bertha.
Food and Drink
When it comes to refreshments, I say “Keep it simple”. If you’re ambitious and would like to make the food yourself, try using a slow cooker to make meatballs, lasagne, or mac & cheese. If you’re in the market for a new slow cooker be sure to check DealDash. DealDash often has slow cookers up for auction. If you’re not that ambitious, then just order pizzas and call it a day!
For an adult’s party, you probably won’t need a huge amount of decorations. Table cloths, flowers, and maybe some streamers are a few choices you might like. For a child’s party it’s better to go all out with balloons, centerpieces, and more!
