Party Planning Guide Printable

December 9, 2012 by Jenny Melrose

As many of you know my profession is a reading specialist.  I love my job because I like knowing that I make a difference in the lives of my students.  As a reading specialist, I work with multiple classes, which allows me the opportunity to get to know many different students and their learning styles.  I have a confession to make though.  I’ve found within the last two years that my passion is for party planning.  I love seeing all the details come together in one grand event.  Some of my favorite parties that I’ve had a hand in are:

Minnie Mouse Birthday Party

Teddy Bear Baby Shower

Transportation Birthday Party

Cupcake Fairy Birthday Party

Since I’m a full time working mom of a very busy three year old, I find that it is imperative that I stay organized throughout the party planning process.  I use my time as efficiently as possible.  In order to help with the organization, I’ve created a party planning guide that keeps everything in one place.

You can find the printable here.  What do you find is key when planning a party?

    Thank you for the good writeup. It in fact was a leisure account it.
    Look complicated to far introduced agreeable from you!

    However, how could we communicate?

    If you do not write well, consider hiring a writer to create the
    copy for this article. Share information that benefits your customers even if it
    doesn’t directly help your bottom line. A recent study has disclosed around 500 million active users in facebook
    alone out of which almost 50% of the users actually log in to facebook everyday and spend
    around 800 million minutes per month on facebook.
    Many companies only check their profiles a couple of times per day.
    The word “Activism” brings to mind placard carrying individuals.
    Internet marketing has flourished rapidly in past few years due to the optimum increase in online
    shopping. You should definitely think twice before you hire out a
    company dealing specifically in social media
    marketing. It affects client loyalty to certain products and permits a
    small business to have interaction with or else unreachable folks.
    When a woman cheats she often feels an overwhelming
    guilt for destroying all of those beautiful images of marriage that she had.
    This will help you to gain authority and make your business popular on the internet platform.

    Love this printable! I am in the business of party planning…. as a profession, soon to be “past profession” but I still love to throw a good party and this printable is gonna come in hand- ALOT!

  • Christmas Around the World

    There is neither an airport nor a train station in the
    town, so traveling to Livigno during ski season can be a challenge.
    All the collections in the portals come with delicacy and tenderness in every delivery along with the best
    rates then one can achieve from the physical stores and malls.
    Children are eagerly waiting for the Santa Claus to come on this day.

  • Christmas Around the World

    Even you may spend a lot of money, never do forget to attach a small token of you love for the person with your own hand.
    However, some people love Christmas so much, they also celebrate this Santa-driven holiday in the middle of
    July, when it is cold enough for a proper English Christmas dinner.
    The best feature of the portals is the on time deliveries at the right destinations.
