In the excitement of planning a party, sometimes we forget details. Don't let "Oh no, I forgot!" become your mantra. Writing it down makes planning a party easier and reduces your stress.
When you first decide to have a party, create a checklist. Write down everything you want for your party: food ideas, games, supplies needed, people to invite. Tape your list to the refrigerator or write it in a notebook. When you think of something new (hey, I want to put ribbons on the ceiling), add it. When you complete something, like sending out the invitations (a check for each person), check it off. This is a great way to keep your party on track.
