My Birthday Party Planning Checklist (With Tips)

Party planning can be quite difficult, especially  if you're new to the game and not exactly sure what to do. I assembled an easy, simple, and to the point check list with tips on hosting a successful birthday party. Save time, money, and energy planning your child's next birthday party!

  • Create a list of people you would like to invite
  • Pick a party theme
  • Clean Any dishes, tableware, or glasses you may need 
  • Decide what food you will serve
  • Go Grocery Shopping 
  • Order a cake unless you plan on baking one
  • Develop your music playlist 
  • Clean the house or party location 
  • Send out a party reminder 
  • Do any last minute shopping 
  • Put any pets away
  • Start decorating
  • Cook & Prep Food
  • Have food, games, and music available for guest 
  • Enjoy yourself

If you're going to host a party always remember it's best to develop a plan first, so that you're prepared and eliminate any added stress that comes alone with hosting a successful party. 

To avoid over spending while getting your party supplies, always set a spending limit and be firm! Expense doesn't make a party fun, it's the creativity the host puts into party, so think of ways to have fun while spending less.

Always keep a party short, especially if you're hosting a kids birthday party (two- three hours max).

Balloons, cups, napkins, plates, and plastic utensils, and decorations can be purchased at Walmart, Dollar General, and especially Dollar Tree and usually are a dollar a piece.

Make sure you have snacks available for when your guest arrive, and activities available to keep the kids busy. 
-dance contest
-musical chairs

10 Things To Consider Before Planning Your Next Party

Hosting a birthday party can be hectic, especially if you're not aware of what to do. For your party to be a success it's best to just plan ahead. You don't want to end up like me, a few years ago I hosted a double birthday party, and put so much work into making food, I forgot to pick up games for the kids to have to play. 

Planning and hosting a party should always be simple! You should never be a host at a party, and ready for it to end as guest arrive! So I put together a list of things to consider before planning your next birthday party:

1. Who is the party for?

2. If child, are you picking a theme for this party? 
(Themes help get the ideas for a party going! Pajama Party, Pirate Party, Dress Your Best Party)

3. How many people are you inviting?

4. Did you pick a date?

5. Check the weather for your party date.
(The weather could be nice today, and be a total wreck the day of the party. You don't want no shows because of a little rain!) 

6. How would you like to send out the invitations? 
(Mail, E-mail, Phone) 

7. What will you feed your guest?
(It's best to plan what you're feeding guest ahead, so you won't have to deal with this last minute.)

8. How will you decorate?
(Streamers, Balloons, Table Covers, Confetti)

9. Are you playing music?
(It's always best to create a playlist ahead of time.)

10. Will you need chairs, tables, or extra help?
(Knowing what you will need ahead of time keeps you from having the stress of gathering these materials when its time to plan for the party.)
