Party Planning Made Easy

If you're anything like my friends and I, then you enjoy a good get together. Over the years, I've learned how to take the burden out of party planning, and actually enjoy the party. I was excited to come across HGTV's Secrets From a Party Planner's concise list of how to make party planning simple. Some of my favorite tips are below. For the full article, Click Here!

Tip 1. Table Settings: A perfectly set table doesn't have to be complicated; feel free to give place settings a modern twist. Tie flatware with pretty ribbon or fabric, handwrite names on a piece of kraft paper and tie to the stem of seasonal fruit, or add a vibrant napkin for a pop of color. Try incorporating natural elements that mesh with the concept, like bare branches with snowy white votives for a wintry setting or glass vases full of seashells for a beach party.

Tip 2. Don't Forget The Favors: A small token of affection is an unforgettable way to end a celebration. Pretty boxes with candies or homemade baked goods are personal and sure to be much appreciated by your guests. Small terra-cotta pots with herbs and flowers are super affordable and even double as a table centerpiece during the party.

Tip 3. Setup A Kids Table: For a family-friendly gathering, it's often smart to set up a separate area for little ones to have their own fun. Try covering a table in butcher paper, and place bundles of colored pencils in Mason jars at each seat so kids can channel their artistic side right on the table. Bamboo plates make cute (and disposable) place settings, and a cupcake centerpiece is sure to be met with delight. Just don't expect them to save dessert for last!
