End goal – Plan for and execute the hosting of an event. (plan, schedule, budget, prepare, cook, entertain, music, socialize & enjoy, clean up…..wait for it…be invited to other parties.)
Have you been to some really good/bad parties? What was great about it, what was missing? …. think about it, what would you do differently ?
Video with the basic steps:
$$$$$$ There is a COST: Try to think of how to reduce some of the cost….
What kind of party do we want to make happen?
Potluck BBQ? Game night w pizza? Wedding? Camping trip? Concert? Yard sale? …. Graduation party?
(Hint here – time line and time of party….could it be that more people are hosting a party during these times… is there anyone else graduating at the same time as you.?? Scheduling conflict for your guests possible??? )
Set the time line: There are thousands of party/event checklists out there… find an example that works for you.
