Below is my initial posting on this task which includes the planning and preparation stages, for the final posting, and to learn how it turned out see 34: The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly.
Throwing myself a superfun birthday party might be number eight on my Bucket List; but it is the first item that I will tackle. Mostly because my birthday is coming up, but also because it is a fun task to take on. I think successfully tackling this one will give me momentum and keep me motivated to face my other self-imposed challenges.
This is the list of To Dos for the party. I’ve started to work on some of the items already, and I am wondering if there are steps that I am missing:
Recruit Help Make a Guest List Set a Budget Reserve Location Order the Cake Pick a Caterer Decide on the Menu Decide on Form of Entertainment Send out Save the Dates Give out Invitations (working on it) RSVP Process Buy my Outfit (still need the shoes!) Buy Decorations and Supplies (working on it)No longer needed. New location is already decorated around my “theme” Buy Outfits for the KidsNo longer needed since it will be a grown-ups party Recruit Help for Kids Activities (working on it)No longer needed since it will be a grown-ups party Call guy in charge of sound system at the location to figure out what I need to bring/do Put together soundtrack and figure out sound system of location (will finally meet with the guy tonight; he’s putting the soundtrack together for me) Get a Mani/Pedi (on my way) Hair and Makeup (have an appointment for tomorrow)
- Most Importantly – Enjoy the Party!
