It’s party planning central here at the moment, with both mine and Immy’s birthdays just around the corner. Throw in back to school preparation and I am finding that I am needing to be extra organised to keep everything moving in the right direction.
Immy has decided that turning 5 is all about mermaids. Thank goodness for Pinterest is all I can say! I have been pinning all sorts of playful, sparkly underwater-inspired ideas and yummy food suggestions. However to stay organised I am the sort of person who has to actuallt write it all down in order to make it happen in any form of logical manner. Initially I had multiple lists on scraps of paper – food on one, decorations on another, party favours and games scribbled on a third but after an urgent, desperate search for one such scrap (which I eventually found hung on the front of the fridge) I knew that it was time to put all of my plans together in one place.
With everything from the contact details of the cake decorator to ideas for music to download for Pass the Parcel, this quick party planner that I designed has literally been a lifesaver. I can tick off tasks that have been completed and guests who have RSVP’d or get busy with my highlighter as a reminder of items that still need to be purchased. If you think a copy of my planner could help you get organised for your next party, feel free to download a printable copy here.
To download and print: The poster is available as an A4 sized document here. To print, you may need to select “Fit to printable area” (or similar) depending upon your printer type and paper size.
If you would like to check out my inspiration for Immy’s party be sure to check out my Party Ideas board on Pinterest. I’ll be sure to share more details here once the party is over 🙂
Will your child/ren be celebrating with a birthday party this year? Do you have a theme in mind?
