Do you have a theme?

The first thing to do would be to think about your party and whether you want a theme. Is the summer gathering happening to celebrate anything specifically? Or is it just an excuse to socialise with your friends and acquaintances? Maybe you are thinking of having a theme for the party itself. So maybe something like black tie or a masquerade ball. You don’t have to have a clear vision, but, at least, having some ideas will help you get started.

Think about the size of the guest list

The next thing to think about would be your guest list. How many are you going to invite? Most importantly who are you going to invite?

It’s all in the detail.

It is all in the detail when it comes to events like this. People will notice the little things and will appreciate these more than anything else. Things like table favours or toiletries in the toilets. Place settings being personal and making everyone feel special. All of which can go towards making your event the one not to be forgotten.

The food will be the most talked about thing.

People are creatures of habit. So talking about food will be high on their agenda. It’s just a natural thing for people to do. Commenting on the sauce that was served, or how the chicken was cooked. Of course, you have no real control over this. But the best advice would be to make the right decision on what you serve from the start. Spend time sampling menu choices and discussing different options before making your final decision.

Enjoy yourself.

Finally, it’s your party. So make sure you have some fun.
