Are you in the process of planning a birthday party, casino night or other event this season? Putting together a party is a big undertaking, and if you don’t entertain often it can be easy to overlook some important aspects of the planning process. The good news is, these mistakes are easy to avoid once you become aware of them. Today we’ll look at a few of the most common party planning mistakes we see at Total Entertainment.
Forgetting to Request an RSVP
Requesting an RSVP isn’t just a polite formality; it’s a great practical consideration as well. RSVPs can help you get a realistic estimate of just how many people are going to attend your party. This, in turn, can help you determine the amount of food, beverages and other supplies you’ll need for the event.
Neglecting to Find the Right Space
Your living room is probably great for entertaining a few guests, but is it large enough to accommodate your entire party? Finding the right setting is an essential part of the party planning process. If your own home isn’t cut out for what you have in mind, consider looking around for a local event space. You can often rent these spaces by the hour at fairly reasonable rates.
Not Asking for Help
Party planning doesn’t have to be a solo endeavor. Chances are, there are a few people on your guest list who would be more than happy to lend a hand. Try to delegate small tasks to different people based on their unique interests and talents. Just a little help here and there will go a long way.
