Camille Styles article on HGTV called “Secrets From a Party Planner: Top 10 Tips for a Stress-Free Party” offers several easy to apply tips when planning your next event. The author is a party blog editor as well as an event planner, so she has the keys to keeping your event low-stress.


Staying organized is perhaps the easiest tip to manage. Styles encourages the reader to keep a master to-do list while keeping the planning simple. The master to-do list should have everything from the RSVP list to any dietary restrictions and even shopping lists to keep you on top of everything you need to do.


A fun way to keep your party stress free is to create a theme. By setting a tone, you can provide a memorable party. This can also help you pick out your signature drink to stay in line with the theme.


Styles suggests that you should keep you invitations simple. Use online invites for last minute get togethers but when planning a bigger event, it can be better to provide a mailed invitation. There are online stationary stores that provide well-designed invitations.


During the party, offer a self-serve bar so your guests can be a mixologist for a night while letting you focus on enjoying your party. Keep the menu to appetizers to make it easier than a full out sit-down meal. Similarly, keep your settings simple. The table doesn’t need to be complicated, simple additions like tying the silverware together with a ribbon. Don’t forget to have a party favor ready for your guests to show your appreciation.
