If your birthday is coming up, you’ll probably be thinking about planning a party. Birthday parties are a great way to get all your friends and family together for a good time. You’ll be able to catch up with those you hardly ever see and the whole event can be like a reunion for you and your close ones. Not only that, though, but it’s an excellent way to celebrate you turning another year older. Older, wiser and more fabulous of course! To help you plan your best party yet, here’s the ultimate checklist of everything you need

A Venue

If you only have a small guest list, you could host your festivities in your own home. However, if you are inviting everyone you know, you may need to hire out a venue. Local pubs and restaurants may have a function room available. One of the best things about hiring out a venue is that the owners will usually sort out catering for you as well!

Food

Speaking of catering, you’ll need to consider food options. If your venue will organise it all for you, then that’s one load off your mind! If you need to sort out food on your own, there are many cheap options. One of the best ways to feed a large group is by putting on a buffet. Remember to include vegetarian options and anything else needed for guests’ dietary requirements.

Decorations

No matter where you are holding your party, you should brighten the place up a bit with some decorations! Enchanted Florist’s birthday flowers can add colour to the room, and you can also buy banners and streamers to add a fun element to the whole decor.

Fancy Dress

How about a fancy dress party? If you give your party a theme, then you can ask all your guests to come in costumes that match the theme. Everyone will love getting creative with their outfit and makeup. You’ll also be guaranteed to hear a lot of laughter throughout the night once guests see what everyone is wearing!

Entertainment

You need to make sure your guests will have a good time at your big bash, so you should think about putting on some entertainment. One of the easiest ways to do this is to have a disco so everyone can dance the night away. You may also want to hire a karaoke machine to give guests the chance to show off their singing skills!

Photos

Taking photos throughout the night will help you create some special memories. You don’t need to walk around with a camera, though. There are many inventive ways to do this! Buy some disposable cameras and place them on the tables so your guests can take snaps. You could also hire out a fun photo booth!

Invitations

Of course, there is no party without any guests. So to make sure everyone turns up, get your invites in the post well in advance of the party date. Then people will know to save the date just for you!

Put on your dancing shoes – it’s time to party!
