CF Party Planner


CharlottesvilleFamily Party Planner Check List

4-6 Weeks Ahead
Choose a theme, budget, date, time, location, entertainment and make lists, lists, and more lists! Commit it to paper and you won't have to commit it to memory.

3-4 Weeks Ahead
Prepare invitations, plan decorations and start collecting what you need. Plan the party games and crafts and refine those lists!

2 Weeks Ahead
Mail invitations, plan the party flow and activity sequence, plan menu and cake, order party favors, make decorations, and complete any "do-ahead" projects. Also, plan a safe place for pets during the celebration.

1 Week to 2 Days Ahead
Make a countdown list, order cake and balloons, call anyone who hasn't RSVP'd, deep clean house, grocery shop for party menu (don't forget batteries and film!).

1 - 2 Days Ahead
Do all final shopping, prep menu, finish last minute projects and make sure cameras are ready to use, pick up rentals, plan partywear for everyone and clean the house again.

PARTY DAY!
Finish remaining cooking, decorate, lay out craft supplies, pick up ice and balloons if needed, snap photos while all is intact, take a deep breath and smile - It's Party Time!

Don't Forget to... Turn on music before party, be a hostess not a hired hand, and give out those party favors.

After the Party
Send Thank You notes to guests and helpers, return rentals, make notes on what worked - useful when you get requests for repeat performances next year.
