3 Steps to the Perfect Party

1
Plan
Start your cocktail party with a plan!

Set the Budget

Kick your planning off by setting a budget for your event, including food and drink. Knowing this upfront means less stress down the line and more enjoyment for you and your guests.

Pick the Venue

Try this party on a patio or in any indoor area. Selecting your location will help you plan for where you want to serve food, drinks, and seating areas, so try to do this several weeks before your party.

Send Invites

Draft a guest list and send electronic invites 2 weeks before your event. Getting a sense of who's coming will help you plan your menu and drink lists before the event.

2
Prep
Start by reviewing what decorations you have and what you need. Remember to try to shop for your supplies about 3 weeks before your event to allow time for ordering.
