Decide how you plan to handle the menu. If you are making food on your own, the checklist should have a food and ingredients item. Think about the types of foods you want to serve and the amounts of ingredients needed. Your checklist should also contain information about the catering company, in case you plan to use the services of such. Have its name, telephone and address listed. You should also include information about the menu selected and the progress on food preparation. Location Ideas _ Some information about the venue should be included in the party planning checklist, as well. Have a checklist item included about all suitable venues, their availability and contact information.
You\'ve also forgotten to send invitations to so and so and a few others and the party is only a few days away. Suddenly you find yourself scrambling back to all the same stores trying to find the items you missed the first time around. Then out of nowhere the night of the party arrives and you realize you don\'t have enough food for all the invited guests. Then the worst possible thing happens, you hear a knock at the front door. It\'s as if a new and frightening nightmare has blossomed out of thin air. You feel the shakes coming on and your stress level is reaching new and incredible heights. I could go even further, but I think you get the idea. If only you had begun your planning by keeping track of all that you need, every purchased item and menu dishes prepared. If only you had made a party planning checklist none of the awful party mistakes listed above would have happened. Now that I\'ve gotten the point across about how important a checklist is I will now inform you about what it needs in order to make it work.
