Event Planning Checklist, is it Christmas, Birthday, Valentines, Picnic's, or Halloween events that you need a checklist for?
Is your Event more a lifetime milestone, such as moving out, going to college, planning retirement? The lists are endless!
However with this guide you will have something for everyone and no-one will be forgotten!
Most people I have talked to find event planning potentially traumatic, and fret about what needs to happen and when, being reluctant to be the chief organizer.
Whether you have been "volunteered" for the organization or it is something you thrive to do; you should find suitable checklists here to assist you along the way.
In most instances your event planning checklist will need similar things, however having a checklist tailored to your specific event, will make it easier for you in the long run.
When planning any event there are a number of common factors. These should be encompassed in all of our event planning checklists, some of the high level reasons for considering these points are detailed here:
Our calendar's are full of many special days that are not necessarily related an individual member of our family. It is personal choice as to whether you celebrate them or not. If it is your first time to celebrate though, you may well want one of these checklists to help you through...
Mothering Sunday | Fathers Day | Saint's Day | Independence Day
The other calendar events in the year are more broadly celebrated. Here I've collected a number of checklists so you have an easy reference point...
Over my time I have arranged one or two event's to say the least.
They have usually been in honour of someone else, and I host them as I really don't know what to buy them as a gift!
My rationale being that memories are priceless, so what better gift to give!
Now I haven't always had loads of time to organise these events.
In fact my Mum's surprise 40th Birthday was arranged in about 4 days from start to finish. Right under her nose! And she didn't suspect a thing! It was a challenge to pull it off, but I succeeded with assistance from her close friends and my grandparents.
We had a fantastic event and she thoroughly enjoyed herself; I did vow however to always leave myself a little more time, next time!
Most of the events that I have organised have been surprise events, and usually they are for the main guest.
I have always had a challenge though to surprise my Dad. I finally achieved this with my parents' Pearl Wedding Anniversary.
It took some doing, but thanks to a very feasible excuse from my sister and her husband, we were able to get both Mum and Dad to the venue without suspicion!
There are a few key elements to making sure that your event is a success, and being organised with your event planning checklist is only one of them.
The other is sometimes a harder lesson to learn, as you have to know your strengths, recognise your weaknesses, and where most people fail, is to ask for help!
Delegation is at times the name of the game, again, this is dependent on the size of the event you are intending to hold.
Are you not sure what you need?
Perhaps your looking for some assistance?
Help is at hand, and not just from me...
...if you're not needing help, but want to share your Success, we'd love to hear from you too!
