I could see a calm enter Jill's eyes. The completed checklist revealed to her that she was a lot further along than she had originally thought. I printed out the party planning checklist for her (yes, I always have a portable printer with me too), got confirmation from her that she would continue using the checklist for the remainder of her planning, and sent her home knowing she'd be fine. This example illustrates the importance of a party planning checklist. Not only does it keep you organized by telling you what you've completed and what you still have to accomplish, but it also give the host piece of mind.
Budget plays an important role in determining how your party should sail through. It is the elementary pick which is going to estimate the throng that is going to turn up on the D_day. It even holds well in reverse. Sometimes, the host will have to define the budget after finalizing the list of party_goers. Secondly, the addresses of the guests have to be listed down to prepare for the sending of the invitations to the invited guests. Though the process of preparing the invitations may take time no further time should be wasted in writing up the invitations and sending them at least three weeks before the party day. The next thing is to patiently wait for the response from the invitee's end as they confirm or decline your invitation. Now, after receiving all the responses, the host should come up with another checklist. It should be a shorter list of those invited guests who confirmed for the party.
