Party Like It's Your Birthday: Top 10 priorities that you should tackle first when planning for an Epic DIY Birthday Bash!

Party Like It's Your Birthday: Top 10 priorities that you should tackle first when planning for an Epic DIY Birthday Bash!

Organizing a birthday party can be a daunting task, but fear not! With these top 10 priorities, you'll be well on your way to throwing a party that will have everyone talking (and laughing) for days.

  1. Choose the right date and time: Don't be that person who schedules a party on Super Bowl Sunday. Make sure you pick a date and time that works for both you and your guests.

  2. Pick a theme: Unicorns and rainbows may be all the rage, but that doesn't mean it's the right theme for your party. Choose a theme that fits the guest of honor's personality and interests. And if your friend is turning 30, maybe skip the unicorn-themed party unless you want them to question your friendship.

  3. Make a guest list: Inviting your ex to your party? Just make sure you have plenty of alcohol on hand. Make a list of who you want to invite, and don't be afraid to be selective. Remember, it's your party, and you want to spend it with people you actually enjoy being around.

  4. Send out invitations: Nothing says "I'm too cool for everyone" like sending out Facebook event invitations the day before your party. Send out invitations at least a few weeks in advance so people have time to plan and RSVP. And if you want to go the extra mile, send out physical invitations for a more personal touch.

  5. Plan the menu: While it may be tempting to order a bunch of pizzas and call it a day, put some thought into your menu. Consider dietary restrictions and preferences, and offer a variety of options. And if all else fails, just make sure you have plenty of chips and dip.

  6. Decorate: Balloons and streamers are a classic party decoration, but don't be afraid to get creative. Incorporate your theme into the decorations, and remember, sometimes less is more. You don't want your party to look like a clown explosion.

  7. Prepare for the unexpected: No matter how much you plan, something is bound to go wrong. Maybe it's a broken glass or a spilled drink. Make sure you have some extra supplies on hand, like napkins and cleaning wipes, so you can handle any surprises with ease.

  8. Entertainment: No party is complete without some fun activities. Whether it's a game of charades or a dance-off, make sure there's something to keep your guests entertained. And if all else fails, just put on some music and let everyone dance the night away.

  9. Have a designated photographer: Don't rely on your guests to capture all the best moments of the party. Designate someone to take pictures throughout the night, so you can look back on the memories for years to come. You don't have to spend a lot of money. You can even delegate it to you Husband or your sister. But if you really want to go all out, hire a professional photographer to make sure you get the best shots.

  10. Budget: Don't forget to allocate a budget for your party. This can help you plan out what kind of party you can organize and this lessen your headaches when the bill comes after the event.
  11. Enjoy yourself: You've put in all the hard work, now it's time to enjoy the party! Don't stress too much about everything being perfect. At the end of the day, it's all about having fun and celebrating the guest of honor.

It was helpful when you said that you must keep your guests entertained, so there must be some fun activities. This makes me think of how my sister can consider renting a tailgating trailer for her son’s 12th birthday in January. She wants to ensure the enjoyment of all his party guests, so your tips will make sense.
