Not everyone has the skill to plan a really good party. So they’ll either call in some friends, or professionals or just try it alone, even though it seems incredibly overwhelming to them. Another way of learning these skills though, is by taking out a subscription to the National Magazine Exchange and picking up tips on party planning. Read about how other people have planned parties; learn about how to organize a party on a budget; get tips from the magazine on party themes. Irrespective of what advice you need, organizational/logistic-type magazines from the National Magazine Exchange can be of tremendous help.
So check out what titles are available from the National Magazine Exchange or the National Publishers Exchange. Read about how others have managed the same thing – with little or no experience – and finally turn something overwhelming into something fun.
