It's Time to make some Decisions:  Here's what you need to think about

What is your budget? 
Everybody has a budget and the best way to see how far your money will go is to make a list of all the things that cost money. On the list put the most important things at the VERY TOP and write down the cost of each one. Once you reach your spending limit- then see how many things are left on the list. Can you do without those things to pull off a great party? If yes then full steam ahead. If No then you need to either save up more money and have the party at a later date or have others go in together and split the cost of the party. At last resort- pick a different type of party. 

How many people do you want to invite? 
Are you wanting a nice quaint party of 6 to 8 that could easily be seated at one table or are you looking to invite 12 to 24 people which would require a more buffet style of eating?

Where do you want to have the party? 
Remember you need to pick a place that will accommodate the number of people you are inviting. Will everyone fit in your living room or will you need to reserve a conference room somewhere? Maybe it's warm weather and you would like your party outside?

When do you want to have it? 
Make sure you give yourself at least 3 weeks ahead for planning the party. Think about who you are inviting too. What shifts do they work? Give the guest enough time to request off from work if they need to. Will you be having your party on a week day or the weekend?

► Party Food,  ► Beverages and   ► Traditional Holiday Food:
                     
A party just wouldn't be a party without food now would it? Part of the fun in socializing is eating. In fact many parties are based on the food itself and offer plenty of it. But don't let that scare you. Always remember the golden rule... "You don't have to have tons of food to put on a good party. Just make sure you have good food for the party."

Have fun labeling your food:
Halloween parties and Pirate parties are the most popular parties that name their food as part of the party theme. For Halloween dishes like witches fingersDead Head CheeseballSpooky Spider Dips and goblin stew are popular choices. For more great recipes visit our Halloween Recipe section.  Are you having a Pirate Party? Names like "Ye ol' bucket of bread" for a Swashbuckling (pirate) party is just perfect.
