To plan a successful party, you need to first establish the occasion and amount of people you will be inviting. Next, you can establish a budget for the party and determine if it will be formal or informal. For parties of 6 guests or less, it is common to plan a formal dinner at home. For informal parties that range from 7-35 people, a buffet set up is preferable. If more than 36 people will be attending, using an external venue can suit your needs more. Start to plan the invitation and theme more than a month ahead.
