I’ve got a lot of supplies for the Valentine’s do now. I am very excited for the party and the food and it all coming together. I’m planning on baking a cake for the do as well.
I’m making a list (and checking it twice) of everything I need to bring to setting up the Valentine’s party. From the big stuff like the box of decorations down to the tiny stuff I need to fix them together with. What food I’ll need, what practical emergency items I’ll need. I’m starting to get worried about the number of guests coming. I only know of 3 people coming. 15 people in total have responded either coming or interested, and even if all of them come then I’m only half way to my minimum capacity. On the other hand, if all those people come and bring someone (who I suspect a few might) then I’m already at the number of guests I need without being aware, so I’m cautious about inviting more people or pushing the advertising even further. If it were a bigger event with more guests to fit in and cater for then I would have put up fliers and physical invitations. I would make the event appear on every screen I could. It’s tricky.
I'm the founder of an Event Planning Business called Better Days. Here is where I write my process from step one to the present. This helps me keep track of all I do and when I do it. At the moment it's a personal tool, once I'm up and running I can use this blog to give advice and tell of y recent projects. Then it will be stream lined and professional and much more interesting for you lovely people. - Samantha Field
