Planning a fun, memorable birthday party can be a rewarding experience. Though you may not be a professional event planner, you can still throw a party like a pro. With the right organizational skills and these helpful tips, you can plan an amazing birthday party with very little stress.

Create a Realistic Schedule
The earlier you start planning, the easier the process will be. Once you’ve picked a party date, create a task list. Then make a schedule, including each task on your list. Allow enough time in between your tasks that you won’t feel pressured. Using an app on your phone or an electronic calendar will allow you to set up alerts for your tasks, reminding you to stay on schedule.

Ask for Help When You Need It
If you start to feel overwhelmed, don’t push your tasks back. Instead, ask for help from a friend or family member. Sharing your load will keep you from getting burned out, and allowing you to be a much more effective party planner in the remaining days leading up to the big event. It’s better to share your task list and stay stress-free than to try to do everything yourself and find out something has slipped through the cracks.

Hold the Party at an Outside Venue
Having the birthday party at an outside venue can really cut down on your stress, as the party space can handle a lot of party details for you. You also won’t have to worry about setting up the party or cleaning up afterwards, allowing you time to actually enjoy the event. Many party venues or event spaces offer all-inclusive party packages. These packages can save you a lot of time, and often money, when planning a birthday party.
