A Party Checklist

You can work from a party checklist like this one when looking at party venues:

  • Make list of people to invite.
  • Mark the date on your calendar.
  • Send invitations (by mail, e-mail, or phone).
  • Plan the menu, including the beverages.
  • Make shopping list (food, paper goods, decorations).
  • Plan cooking schedule: Determine what can be made ahead and frozen, day before, and that day, and what you are buying already prepared.
  • Make list of equipment needed (rental chairs and table).
  • Plan the layout of the rooms. (Make sure all the food tables are not right on top of each other to ensure smooth flow for people to mingle.)
  • Plan music.
  • Plan lighting.
  • Buy or make a centerpiece or other decorations.
  • Check your stock of cleaning supplies for before and after the party.
  • Make sure you have all the platters and serving pieces you’ll need in a party space rental

Advanced planning suggestions:


  • Choose a theme.
  • Make a guest list
  • Pick a date and time.
  • Decide if it will be indoors or outside for places to throw a party
  • Decide if you will have it at home, go to a park, or pay for a hall.
  • Decide on the day’s activities; what time to eat, what games to play, what crafts to do, etc.
  • Order your party supplies; including favors, decorations, wrapping paper, tape, plates, plasticware, cups, and piñatas.
  • Order your entertainment; get written receipts and read those contracts. (i.e. music and dj, magician, clown, farm animals, balloon bouncer, etc.)
