In life we have tons of life events that occur birthdays, engagement parties, weddings,holiday parties, housewarming, baby showers, anniversary party, etc. Event planning, can be fun, enjoyable,amusing, but it can be chaotic, hectic and overwhelming if you don’t plan well. It is vital to have a positive mindset and be organized. Here are just a few tips on what to prepare and plan for.

??????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

1.) The Blueprint

 

There are a few questions that needs to be asked when you are trying to put an event together.What is the point of event? Is there a goal,or a mission?Is it a fundraiser? Are you going to display a new product? Whether you have a business goal or just want to put a smile on someone’s face, you definitely want to have a clear end goal.

3.) The perfect time and place

 

It can be a hard task trying to find the perfect venue and time, depending on how much time you may have to your scheduled event date. Some really great venues are hotel banquet halls, convention centers or even some universities and colleges have great halls depending on how many people are planning to attend your event. A lot public places from the city or state may have reduced rates.

4.)Who’s Who?

 

Who to invite is just half the battle. It is important to create invitations that reflect the event and the personality of the company,team, couple or individual. It is imperative to send the invitations with a sufficient amount of time left to send out so you can receive RSVP back with enough time so render your guestlist.
