There are a few things you need to keep in mind when planning a birthday party. Having drinks and dancing are not the only two things that make up a party. You might have to put in a lot of work to see that through.

Don't stress if you feel completely lost when it comes to planning a party. We've simplified the process with the help of a checklist! Here are the basic items that must be included in every checklist; feel free to add your own as needed.

  1. Set Your Budget
  2. Decide On The Location
  3. Decide On The Theme
  4. Buy Your Decor
  5. Prepare A Guestlist
  6. Plan On What To Serve

Set Your Budget

How To Plan A Birthday Party


Budgeting is a must when throwing any kind of party. It gives you a cap to stay within so you don't blow the budget and ruin your mood for the celebration.

The rest of your planning relies around your budget once you've established it. That's the easiest part! With a budget, you are shown which way to follow, such as what you can and cannot afford.

Budgeting is more than just deciding on a figure and sticking to it. Setting a budget entails calculating how much you're willing to spend and cross-referencing it with every item required for the planning.

Decide On The Location

There needs to be a location for parties to take place. Your budget and the convenience of both you and your guests should guide your choice of venue.

Are you interested in having an outdoor party?  or would doing it at home be a safe option? If you want to have the party at a venue that requires advanced booking, such as an Airbnb or a banquet hall, then you need to be sure to reserve the area at the appropriate time before the party.

Decide On The Theme

Now for the fun part! Deciding on the theme. The beauty of birthday party themes is that you can choose absolutely anything. Whether it's a colour, a movie or even your favourite book, it's all up to you!

Themes aren't necessary but themes can set the mood and add to the party atmosphere, making it extra fun. It even makes it easier for the guest to know what to wear to the party as well as makes it easier for you to buy the decor for the party.

Buy Your Decor

Once you've settled on themes and established a spending limit, decorating the venue is a breeze. The atmosphere of a party can make or break it, so it's important to put some thought into the decorations. They make the ceremony and setting look more fitting for the event.

Aside from matching the theme, you can also buy some standard birthday party decorations like balloons and party hats for you and your guests. Party hats are always a hit.

Prepare A Guestlist

A guest list is also necessary to ensure that no one you invite ends up missing the party. A birthday party is an expensive endeavour, so it's crucial to consider both your financial resources and the number of people while making your guest list.

Is it for close friends or for family only? Is your party open for everyone to bring plus ones or do they require RSVP? all of these are important to consider.

Once you've finalized the guest list, you can go ahead and send out the invitations, and now one more item is off the checklist.

Plan On What To Serve

Well, your guests aren't just gonna stand around and do nothing, right? Time to come up with the menu! Your guests would highly appreciate a menu that you've carefully put thought into. 

Are you gonna cook or just getting takeout? We would hate for anyone to have to go to the hospital because of a forgotten allergy or vegetarian guest, so consider that. 

Now that everything is checked off the list, you can finally take a breather. Oh no! You forgot one more thing; your birthday gift! On your special day, you also should not forget to get yourself a birthday gift. You can easily get one delivered to your party and unwrap it with your guests along with the other presents.
