This one is usually pretty easy, the birthday date! Otherwise find the nearest Saturday night and lock it in!
How much do you want to spend overall on the occasion? If you have a larger budget – first plan out all essential items and then see how much you have left over for fun extras. Otherwise, with a smaller budget, prioritise a list of wha you will need and assign as much budget according to how important it is.
If you have the space then a party at home can be the best option! With no cover charge this can save a lot of your budget, however does leave the cleaning and food and drink preparation up to you (or some lovely helpers). If you have enough in your budget it can be great to choose a venue that suits your theme and will be able to take care of all of the nitty gritty details.
Will this be a small or large event? The size of your guest list might be directly linked to how large your budget is. It all depends on how many people you can afford to provide for!
In the era of Facebook Event invitations it is an old tradition to send physical invitations. For a significant birthday like a twenty-first or thirtieth this is a nice touch to remind your guests that this is a special occasion that you really want them there for.
The latest trend in events is to have less roaming canapés, instead a more extravagant singular table of free-range grazing. A larger grazing table can be set up to include savoury snacks like cheese as well as sweeter treats like fruit and chocolate, all intertwined and easy for guests to pick what they like, when they like. Adding a centrepiece or decorative items like edible arrangements can make your grazing table feel full and stand out!
