If you need to purchase party supplies, such as plates, napkins or utensils, make sure to add this to your list. Another item for the checklist is to phone rental companies for prices on tables, chairs or party supply items. You can even rent linens, glasses and plates! Make sure to secure your rental items early to avoid a last minute rush, especially during major holidays when there are lots of parties. Each checklist varies from host to host and party to party. But it is clear that creating a party planning checklist is a wonderful way to stay organized, get everything done in the proper amount of time and the ability to give the best party you can.
First off, you should know that Jill is a very spontaneous person; "plan" just isn't a word that has ever entered her vocabulary. She has sisters that are much more suited to planning this type of a party, but it really doesn't matter. No matter how unorganized you think you are, planning a successful party is as easy as creating a party planning checklist. I took all of the Post_Its, and with Jill's help, we organized them into a puzzle of sorts. This puzzle was the start of her checklist. I could see that she had written down names of places, dates and times, menu ideas, theme ideas, and people's names. Everything we need for a good checklist seemed to be on the notes.
