HGTV partnered with Camille Styles, an event planner and party blog editor, to share her top tips when planning a get-together. The first tip is to plan simply. To reduce stress closer to the party date, start early with the logistics to have each component of the plan on the back of your mind for better preparation. Second, it’s important to stay organized with the paperwork of supplies, guest list, RSVPs, dietary restrictions, etc. Next create a theme for your party to spark excitement and set a tone for your party. Once a theme is picked out, send out invites. Invites can be delivered by your preferred method as well as designed by hand or online. Your invitations also set the tone and excitement for the upcoming get-together.
The fifth tip is to set up a self-serve bar to reduce stress and ensure everyone has a drink in their hand. With setting out the appropriate set of glasses, liquors, mixers, and pitchers, each guest can enjoy mixing their own drink to their own taste. Styles also suggests creating a specialty concoction to leave your trademark. Another way to reduce stress is to keep the appetizers bite size & simple. Along with simple appetizers should be a simple setting. A setting with one notable feature creates a modern look. Also include a kid’s table that provides its own entertainment, that way everyone can enjoy the party. Lastly, Styles recommends to stay relaxed & to not forget the party favors! Remember to enjoy your own party and leave a lasting impression for your guests.
