AT THE MOMENT, WE'RE IN THE MIDDLE OF A CRAZY BUSY RUN OF PARTIES AND EVENTS, SO I'VE DONE UP SOME FREE PRINTABLE PARTY PLANNERS TO HELP KEEP THINGS ON TRACK.
I had intended to divide these 12 free party planners into separate sets, but I think they work better as one big mix and match group; this way you can print exactly what you need for a kid's party, afternoon tea, family reunion, dinner party, and any other event you can think of.
I have, however, divided the post into two parts because it was just so long!
1. ENTERTAINING SECTION COVER:
If you're keeping all your party printables in your Home Organizer, an Entertaining Section cover sheet will help you find them quickly!
2. THE QUICK PARTY PLAN:
This is a great starting point for any event, with space for a few notes on all the different planning aspects so you don't forget anything.
This can easily be used on its own, or you can use it as a summary and flesh out each aspect on a separate sheet.
3. GUEST LIST:
A must for all but the smallest do's, a guest list lets you easily tick off who you've sent invites to and who has RSVP'd.
I've included a phone/email column rather than the classic address contact, because few party invitations are mailed these days.
4. GIFT RECORD:
A great way to make sure you thank the right person for the right gift! It's especially useful for kid's parties.
5. CATERING AMOUNTS:
One of the biggest headaches people have when planning a party is figuring out how much food they need.
This little reference sheet aims to give you a guide - I did quite a bit of research on this to ensure the quantities are accurate.
That said, do use your own judgement depending on the crowd; hosting 30 CWA ladies for brunch will be quite different to hosting 30 of your teenage son's friends the morning after a party!!
6. PARTY FOOD:
I always find this planner particularly helpful - it's a list for all the dishes you're serving so you can see everything at a glance.
I added an 'amount' column, as I often end up making double or triple batches of a recipe, or, I'll have two bowls of dip at either end of the table.
I also added a column for what the dish will be served on because I always run out of serving platters!
