Who doesn’t love a good party? If you’ve been tasked with planning a friend’s party or you’re planning one of your own, the experience should be a fun one. Party planning can be a creative activity. However, when time becomes a pressure, the planning can become stressful and overwhelming. If you’re struggling to plan a last-minute party for a friend or yourself, there’s no need to panic. Here are a few tips on how you can make your last-minute party planning experience a little less stressful and a bit more fun.

Create a great invitation.

Start by creating a fantastic, creative invitation to send out. The invitation will help your guests decide whether or not to come to your event. Once you’ve sent out the invitations, you’ll have the most important step ticked off your to-do list. If you can, create a physical or digital invitation with a unique, personal design. For instance, if it’s for a birthday party, find an old picture of yourself at one of your childhood birthdays.

Choose a simple theme.

Choosing a theme can help you to come up with ideas for all of the food and decorations, and even party games that you’ll include in your plans. Try not to go overboard with the theme – the more complicated your theme, the more work it will require. Try to choose a theme that you already have decorations and costumes for. Use the theme to come up with a food menu, a decoration scheme, and costume ideas. If you’re planning on playing a few party games, think of fun thematic variations of classic games.

Opt for catering.

Food can become a very time-consuming and stressful part of party planning. If you’re expecting a lot of hungry guests, it will be much easier for you to simply hire a catering company. This will give you plenty of extra much-needed time in the run-up to the party to decorate your venue, make last-minute changes to the plan, and welcome your guests.

Create a special party banner

Relax and have fun!

The last and final tip is to simply relax and have fun. While you may feel pressure to make your party perfect, if you don’t have much time to prepare, you may need to settle for some less than favorable options in the planning process. Try not to let small disappointments ruin your experience of the party itself. While all of the details may not be as you imagined them, the only way you’ll enjoy the party is by forgetting about your original plans and just relaxing.
