A party planning checklist should consist of the type of party you plan on having, it\'s budget, the guest list, venue, decorations, food and beverages and the time and date of your party. Start by writing yourself a header. Something like, \'Luau party planning checklist\', will do just nicely. The reason it\'s a good idea to create a headline is it will make it more difficult to deviate from your parties theme if you keep reading it over and over. The next aspect of your checklist should definitely be your budget. Creating a budget and keeping track of all your spending is very important. Your budget will be the key reason for many of your up and coming party decisions. The checklist is a way of keeping everything in order so you don\'t overspend in one area and leave another area short.
The budget is important because it can determine how your party will take shape. Figuring out your budget before any planning will save you time, and of course, it will save you money. It can narrow down the choices for the menu, the location, the drinks you\'ll serve, the decorations, the location, and the number of people you invite. The guest list is the next item you should put down on your party planning checklist. It, like the budget, is important to determine early on in your party planning process. If you were smart, you already have a budget calculated. That budget should already give you an idea of how many people you can invite.
