We have some great tips to help you plan a party in Lichfield or surrounding area:

Choosing a party theme

The theme of the party will depend on whether the party is for a child or an adult as well as the type of special event/occasion. Having a theme will help you tie the party together with regards to decorations, costumes (if needed), the cake and more.

Consider your budget

Decide how much you would like to spend; this is important as it will prevent you paying out too much and suffering financially.

Set the date and choose a venue

Once you have set a date, you can find a party venue. Sometimes it’s good to go and visit various places to see where they will host your party. If you’re having the party at your own home, ensure you have enough space for everyone. Don’t forget to decorate the venue nearer the time with banners, balloons and table decorations.

Decide on your Guest List

Once you have decided who to invite, send invitations to your guests early so they can “save the date”. Three weeks before the event is enough notice.

Purchase party supplies and decorations

Deciding on a theme makes buying party supplies and decorations so much easier as you can pick out party decorations to match.  Party supplies may include balloons, banners, puff balls, table decorations, confetti, cake decorations, costumes and more.

Order a Cake

Whatever the occasion, you will need a cake. Make sure you order it well in advance to ensure its ready on time. Maybe you will be baking your own cake? If this is the case, it’s a good idea to practice recipes beforehand.

Think about Party Food

Whether you’re making the party food yourself or buying it in advance, make certain you have enough food to feed everyone and consider any dietary requirements.

And last but not least … buy a gift!
