What Should a Party Planning Checklist Include in 2023?

Sep 7, 2023

If you’re planning a party in 2023, there are a few items to make sure are on your party planning checklist. According to G2, the start of event planning occurs six to 12 months in advance for 48% of event planners surveyed. Now’s an ideal time to review your checklist for completeness and to ensure that nothing falls through the cracks.


When you’re planning an event, no matter the type, it’s important to provide your guests with quality entertainment. This could be a clown at a child’s party, a band or DJ at a wedding, or a motivational speaker at a corporate event. Be sure that the entertainment is appropriate to the event and has experience working with live crowds. Regardless of the type of entertainment, you’ll also need staging and flooring to accommodate. Be sure that staging, dance floors, or tent flooring is on your party planning checklist.

Custom Cocktails and Menu Items

The most effective way to make your guest feel special is through delicious food and drinks. Custom cocktails are the perfect way to elevate your event to one that’ll be remembered for many years to come. And, selecting a menu with a few locally sourced or specialty items will also give your guests the feeling that they’re somewhere special! Taking some extra time with your caterers to create the perfect culinary experience for your party or gathering is always worth the time and effort needed. At Allied Event Solutions, we can provide you with the grills, sheet pans, carving stations, ice chests, and more that your event needs.

Tables, Chairs, and Linens

While these items may not be as exciting as others on your party planning checklist, it’s difficult to host a successful event without them. Working with an experienced rental company will make the planning portion of your event a lot less stressful. Now’s an ideal time to begin interviewing and considering rental companies to help with these essentials. Professional companies also have items like dance floors, heating lamps, and tents to rent. Depending on the type of event you’re hosting and its location, your rental company team could likely become your new best friends!
