Supplies must not be missed out in the checklist, as their importance should not be considered trivial. It is better to buy pates, napkins, spoons, cups, and saucers in huge number so that the host will avoid eleventh hour purchases. Preparing extra food is necessary as it is nearly impossible to be able to arrive at an exact estimate. If one wants to make the guests elated with surprise gifts, he may have to do some research which should also be included in the checklist. Tables, chairs and other equipment that should be rented should also be mentioned accordingly in the checklist. In order to satisfy every guest\'s party spirit, checklist becomes an essential requirement for the hosts. Hosts have different ways in coming up with a checklist but the execution and implementation are similar. If one wants to see things happening orderly, organized and efficient, the checklist is the powerful weapon.
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.
