From the moment you decide to throw a party or organise a special event you’ll quickly discover that you’ve committed yourself to spending a lot of time making it happen. We’ve put together a handy event planning checklist as there will be a very long list of things to do and, for every item you tick off, there will be more to add. Along the way, there will be umpteen decisions to be made – and then yet more.

For every element of your party or event, you’ll need to find suppliers. This in itself can be a lengthy process – finding two or three that look good, checking availability, getting costs in and comparing, possibly juggling your party budget as things are put in place. It’s a process that has to be repeated constantly – from choosing a florist to hiring props to booking the venue or choosing a marquee company. And it all takes time – great if you have plenty to spare, more challenging if you’re doing this around work commitments or even as part of your work commitments if yours is a corporate event.

Book Your Own Party

Being organised about your organising (really!) is key to the success of any event. We do it day in day out but we never leave anything to chance. Every event that we work on is distilled down to a series of highly detailed spreadsheets and time schedules. The end product may be full of creative thinking, visual impact and inspiration, but it’s making sure that every tiny detail is addressed in the run-up to the day of the event that ensures success. And it’s exactly the same for you!
