If you need to purchase party supplies, such as plates, napkins or utensils, make sure to add this to your list. Another item for the checklist is to phone rental companies for prices on tables, chairs or party supply items. You can even rent linens, glasses and plates! Make sure to secure your rental items early to avoid a last minute rush, especially during major holidays when there are lots of parties. Each checklist varies from host to host and party to party. But it is clear that creating a party planning checklist is a wonderful way to stay organized, get everything done in the proper amount of time and the ability to give the best party you can.
Next, we transferred the information over to an Excel spreadsheet. It\'s not imperative that you use Excel, or even a computer for that matter, but I always have my computer with me. You can write it down on a piece of copy paper if you have to. I just wouldn\'t recommend Jill\'s Post_It method. That can be okay if you think of something while you\'re out, but don\'t have your checklist with you at the time. Just be sure to transfer it to your checklist as soon as you can. Once everything was transferred to the Excel checklist I had created for her, she told me which items on the list she had finished, and we checked those off. She even remembered a few more ideas she had about the menu, so we entered those in the appropriate section.
