There is a common practice of making newborn checklist of all needed things for a baby. As a rule it is written by parents with the help of soon_to_be grandparents as the most experienced experts. The newborn checklist helps to focus on the most important and practical baby things. Some items really become a surprise for new parents since they might not be aware of them.
Supplies must not be missed out in the checklist, as their importance should not be considered trivial. It is better to buy pates, napkins, spoons, cups, and saucers in huge number so that the host will avoid eleventh hour purchases. Preparing extra food is necessary as it is nearly impossible to be able to arrive at an exact estimate. If one wants to make the guests elated with surprise gifts, he may have to do some research which should also be included in the checklist. Tables, chairs and other equipment that should be rented should also be mentioned accordingly in the checklist. In order to satisfy every guest's party spirit, checklist becomes an essential requirement for the hosts. Hosts have different ways in coming up with a checklist but the execution and implementation are similar. If one wants to see things happening orderly, organized and efficient, the checklist is the powerful weapon.
