Planning a Well Crafted Party: Tools

Planning a Well Crafted Party: Tools

One of the many things I hope to do with this blog is to help others learn to plan (and love planning) a party.  Over the next few weeks I will be posting different steps in creating a party. Now, I could do a three step party or something super simple (and, maybe someday I will). But, this time I am going to give you the steps in the same order that I do them, at the same time I am doing them.

In getting ready for a party, any party, I go through the same stages that I will be discussing with you on this blog. Sometimes, if it is a very large party, these stages take time and effort. If it is a smaller party I can usually fly through most of the steps in a couple of hours.

My party planning tools often include:

sources: binders, pens, magazines, books (books pictured include David Tutera’s “The Party Planner” and Matthew Mead’s “Entertaining Simple”, computer, paper

Now, a lot of these things are optional– you don’t have to have party planning books and magazines at home to plan a great party. And, I have plenty of great parties without a binder to keep everything together. But, these tools are certainly useful and don’t underestimate your resources. I often go to the library for internet use or to peruse the unlimited amounts of inspiration found in all kinds of different books.

I found that the only thing I absolutely have to have when planning my parties is paper and pens or pencils. That is it–the rest, just icing.

Question for Readers: What part of planning a party do you really enjoy? Which part do you dislike?
