Secondly, the checklist should be comprehensive. Many prospective home watchers will have a simple list. Unless you live in an extremely simple condo with no bathroom, that won\'t work. It should include all parts of every system. The plumbing system needs to be broken down to toilets, sinks, drains, and supply lines as well as water heaters. The air conditioning system checks must include temperature checks, humidity recording, filter checks as well as output temperature measurements. If you are presented with a simple \'toilets, air conditioning, sprinklers\' checklist, go elsewhere and save yourself future heartache and headaches.
If you are thinking of having the party at a reception hall or similar rented venue, find out if they supply the food or if they require the food to be purchase from one of their preferred suppliers. Ask about the cost and menu options. After you have this information, you can decide if you want to have the party at catered at home or if you want to have the party at an outside venue. You will need to add to your checklist to get quotes from caterers. If you enjoy cooking, you might want to prepare the food at home yourself. If so, make a note on your checklist to investigate menus and food cost. Once you make a decision which option you would like, you will need to either book the venue or caterer. Make a note on your checklist to confirm the party details closer to the actual day of the party.
