The host has to make up his mind regarding the place where he intends the party to take place. If the budget is substantial, then no time should be wasted in booking a resort or hotel and these private vendors will help the host lessen up his or her work. In this regard, the leading vendors of the town should be contacted and the host has to choose among them, according to the quotations the vendors have given. If the vendor provides the food on the day of party, it will add to the expense. After estimating the price that a vendor demands for the place, a host should decide whether he should handle the food by himself or get a caterer. As the list of options increase, the checklist also increases in length, as the host should be trying out every possibility. For future correspondence with private vendors or caterers, new columns can be added for their contact details and other important information.
I could see a calm enter Jill\'s eyes. The completed checklist revealed to her that she was a lot further along than she had originally thought. I printed out the party planning checklist for her (yes, I always have a portable printer with me too), got confirmation from her that she would continue using the checklist for the remainder of her planning, and sent her home knowing she\'d be fine. This example illustrates the importance of a party planning checklist. Not only does it keep you organized by telling you what you\'ve completed and what you still have to accomplish, but it also give the host piece of mind.
