Planning a Party? No Stress!

Organization is key to make hosting a breeze. There are six questions to answer to get started: What is the date? How many guests will be there? What is the location? What type of party will it be? What is your budget? Is there going to be music or entertainment?


Everyone loves a good party, but not everyone loves organizing one. In our hectic lives filled with deadlines, meetings and day-to-day errands, the process of party planning often becomes an afterthought rather than a fun activity.


With Christmas just around the corner, and New Year beckoning, here's a checklist a start:
