Whether you’re just doing the party at home, in the office, or in a different event venue, make sure that it’s not difficult to drive to. After you have decided on the venue, start planning the decoration and concept of your party. This makes the other details easier to plan.

You can opt for lighting your venue with hundreds of candles, just some string lights, or even go grand with a chandelier.
3. Have a Plan
Plan for everything and make sure that you consolidate the littlest details in one place. Include the dates, tasks, owners, and status. This ensures that everything is accounted for and will make the entire planning process easier for you.
These are three simple ways to make your party planning hassle-free. Despite the pressure of planning and organizing, remember that the most important thing to do is to enjoy the process and actual event.
