The host has to make up his mind regarding the place where he intends the party to take place. If the budget is substantial, then no time should be wasted in booking a resort or hotel and these private vendors will help the host lessen up his or her work. In this regard, the leading vendors of the town should be contacted and the host has to choose among them, according to the quotations the vendors have given. If the vendor provides the food on the day of party, it will add to the expense. After estimating the price that a vendor demands for the place, a host should decide whether he should handle the food by himself or get a caterer. As the list of options increase, the checklist also increases in length, as the host should be trying out every possibility. For future correspondence with private vendors or caterers, new columns can be added for their contact details and other important information.
The checklist should be in writing. If some representing themselves as a home watch company cannot produce a written checklist, save your time and money. These are people who will \'work from memory\' to accomplish what they do. How can they show accomplishment of each item? Just ask them! Without a written checklist you have no idea what was actually done. They may have run through the property and ensured there were no fires, and left. Without a written checklist, you have no idea. A good company will keep the checklist for reference in case they believe there may be a problem in the future.
