Setting The Date Of Your Party
One of the most important first tasks you have planning your party is setting the date. Setting the best possible date sounds easier than it is. Before you make your decision, there are many events and other important dates to consider. Your party is only as good as the people you invite, so you need to make sure you come up with a date that works for most of them.
You have to invite your guest early enough to make sure they have enough time to prepare. Make sure you invite people at least three or four weeks prior to the party. If you call somebody a day before the party, they may not be able to attend due to other engagements. Also, inviting people to a party is considered rude. Someone invited the last minute may think, you invited him or her so late to avoid having him or her at the party.
You should give your guest enough time, and you should give yourself enough time too. You need to make sure you have time to prepare. Because there are so many components to plan a great party, be sure to give yourself enough time. Before setting the date for your party, you should consider your friends and family members’ schedules. Birthdays, graduations, vacations, and other events may prevent people important to you attend your party.
It is best not to schedule your party on a Holiday, unless your party is related to the Holiday itself. It makes sense to schedule a big barbeque party for the 4th of July. But if you think people you plan to invite to the party will be out of town on your chosen date, you should reconsider the date of the party.
The food is an essential part of any party, so carefully consider it. Try to arrange more than one kind of food, so your guest will have more than one option. Remember, what you like may not be equally popular with your guest. It doesn’t hurt to ask a few of the invited guest to see what kind of food they like.
