So you’re planning a party for someone special & you want everything to be amazing. How does all that work itself out? By keeping the focus on the reason for the party - your VIP! And yes, that’s easier said than done.
Here are a few things we’ve learned over the years:
If you’re throwing a surprise party for someone, make sure they like surprises. Nothing sours the mood at a party like the VIP arriving & being upset.
When booking the entertainment, don’t hire a band if your VIP prefers DJs and vice versa. Keep your personal playlist strictly for that & allow the artists to please your VIP with music they love.
Only spend money on items or services that focus on the VIP. No need for a Luau if your VIP never goes to the beach. Also, the other guests can have their own party some other time.
If the demographic of the guests are from another generation or country, align yourself with someone from that one. This will save you lots of guessing & assuming!
Let go of your own desires & keep the VIP first in every decision you make. The venue, decorations, entertainment, catering, etc. should all be focused your VIP.
To plan any event is a challenge, but with the right preparation, anything can be awesome!
