Twelve Helpful Hints for Planning a Successful Party

  • Plan ahead as far as possible to ensure your choices will be available when you want them.
  • Determine the number of guests for your event.
  • Choose a hall, venue or site to host your event.
  • Plan your party with a theme in mind.
  • Determine your budget. NJS Design & Party Rentals can help you select and share cost saving tips to make your event affordable. Remember to book early to avoid disappointment.
  • Determine other professional needs, including florist, photographer, bakery, entertainment, decorations, party favours, transportation, honeymoon plans and attendant gifts.
  • Meet and choose a caterer to determine the type of food and cost.
  • Send out invitations at least 3 months ahead of your event – RSVP’s due 6-8 weeks ahead of your event.
  • Determine if accommodations and transportation will be necessary for your invited guests.
  • Finalize all aspects of your event with the event professionals that you have chosen at least one week out prior to your event.
  • Ask for help, don’t take too much on.   DIY is great but if it stresses you out it won’t be worth it.
  • And the single most important hint is to relax and enjoy the days’ events! Your planning has paid off.
