Planning Tips

Catering in Canton MA from Main Course MarketIt can be overwhelming to plan and host an event or party. You don’t want to forget the little things, you want it to be memorable, and it would be nice if you got to enjoy it too! Here are some tips to help you reduce the stress of party planning.

Plan early. Pick a theme for your party and send out invites a few weeks ahead of time. Plan decoration ideas and what kinds of food you want, as well as activities. Making a list of all the things you need, or will need to buy or rent will give you a check list to go off of so you’re less likely to forget something.

Make a checklist. Write down everything you need. Checking things off of your to do list lets you know what is and is not taken care of.

Accept additional help. You can hire someone to clean the house before or after a party. Perhaps friends and family are willing to lend a hand, and if they are, let them. Delegating responsibilities to others, even if it’s something as simple as picking up ice, is a big help in the end.

Do what you can ahead of time. Decorating, table settings, preparing gift bags, you can do these things beforehand so you don’t have to stress the day of making sure the ambiance is right.

Hire a caterer. You can spend hours in the kitchen before the party and during the party. Instead of stressing over making sure you have enough food for everyone and food preparation, hire a catering company to handle it for you. Food is an important part of any event, and catering saves you the time and trouble of working through the party. Depending on what services the caterer offers, caterers can save time from serving to clean up.
