Top 9 Party Planning Ideas

by zesty on December 11, 2009 · 2 comments

Hey you!  End of the week is here and I wanted to switch up things a little bit and share with you some tips I try to use when planning for a get together or party.  Now these ideas are nothing earth shattering or unheard of but it is just a guideline that may ease some stress around “PARTY TIME“.

  1. For a simple centerpiece, arrange bunches of flowers ( daisies, etc in small tin buckets )
  2. Plastic glasses and utensils make cleanup easy
  3. When serving messy meals like ribs, use lightweight bandannas instead of thin napkins
  4. Dress salads just before serving
  5. Keep lots of napkins and or paper towel on hand to wipe up spills
  6. To keep beverages cold longer, place in a full tub of ice, water and salt ( 1 Tbsp. per Quart of water )
  7. Use checklists and try to divide up tasks among your helpers
  8. Plan ahead and prep whatever you can ahead of time.
  9. Have Fun while doing it

Ok, so it is 8:55 pm o’clock in the evening ( last night ) and I just realized I have a client meeting at 9:00 that I totally forgot about so that is going to eat into my evening of relaxation.  Oh well – I will still try and sneak a piece of fudge and possibly some killer banana bread before hitting the sack.

Have a great weekend and I will talk to you on Monday.

Take care

zesty
