Are you celebrating a milestone birthday this year? The great thing about birthdays is that you know when they’re coming so you’ll have plenty of time to plan! Are you at a loss for how to make it special? We’ve got some tips to help you plan a birthday party like a pro!

  • Give yourself plenty of time

It’s easy to underestimate the amount of time you’ll need to plan a party, ending up feeling rushed and overwhelmed. We recommend beginning the party planning two or three months in advance, so that you’ll have plenty of time to be organized and host an amazing party.

  • Create a budget to help set your parameters.

The budget should be your first step, so that you’ll know what you have to spend on all the different areas of your plan, including the venue, décor, entertainment, and so on.

  • Choose the right birthday party venue for hire.

Once you know your budget, you can look for a private party space venue for rent. Think about the vibe you want for your party as you look at different venues to find the right one for you.

  • Pay attention to the details.

What’s your theme? This will inform things like the activities, dress code, and menu. The date and time of your event are impactful as well. Think about all the little different aspects of the party, like the décor and entertainment. How many guests will be in attendance? Hammer out all of these details while you’re planning your party.

  • Plan your entertainment early

If you want live entertainment, it will pay to book early to increase your chances of availability. Think about interesting options for activities like a photobooth, to help keep your guests entertained throughout your event.

  • Send invitations a month ahead of time

You’ll want to give your guests plenty of time to coordinate their calendars but not so much time that they’re in danger of forgetting your event. A month in advance is usually the perfect time to send invitations and get the best turnout for your event.

  • Coordinate with the caterers

About two weeks before the event, you’ll want to make sure you understand the timing of your order and what you need to do to facilitate a smooth experience with the catering company.

  • Do a walk-through the day before

Physically go to the venue and set up as much as you’re able to, reviewing your décor pieces and making sure everything is in place to go well the next day. This will save you time and stress on the day of the party.

  • Enjoy the party!

If you’ve stayed organized and planned it well, you should be able to relax on the day of the party. You’ll want to be able to greet your guests and be a part of the event, rather than running around taking care of last minute details. Want to make it even more hassle-free? Hire a cleaning crew to help afterwards, so you won’t have to do the work yourself.
