Last-Minute Party Plans That Work
Sometimes, you simply don’t have time to plan ahead. Maybe you’ve forgotten a special birthday or anniversary, or you just realized you need to throw together a going-away party for someone who will be leaving in a couple of weeks.
The good news is you don’t have to scrimp on a luxurious feel for your get-together. You can still create a pulled-together event that makes the guest of honor feel treasured. Here’s how:
- Pick a Theme and Colors to Match
You’ll have an easier time creating a cohesive celebration if there’s a theme and basic color arrangement. This way, the invitations, music, food and décor can all match a general style, making the event feel more put-together.
- Get Other Guests to Help
Write up a list of tasks you need to complete to get the event on track. From picking a date and drawing up a guest list to ordering flowers and getting the decorations, get it all down on paper or onto a document in the cloud. Then, find some people so you can delegate the tasks to. If someone else gets the invitations ready and sent out or checks for food allergies among guests, you’ll free up your own time to take care of everything else.
- Focus on the Experience You Want to Have, Not on “Things”
The main goal is to make the person you’re celebrating feel great. When you get stressed out about all that needs to be done, go back to the big reason for your party and use that as a touchstone to decide what is important and what isn’t. Do you really need matching balloons for the big event, or is it more important to have the guest of honor’s favorite foods and people there?
- Keep the Guest of Honor in Mind
Write down the person’s favorite meals, preferences, details about their style, favorite music and anything you can think of they might enjoy. Use this when planning your party to create something special.
- Give Them a Private Dining Experience With a Foodie Angle
