I love throwing parties and I have a notebook that I keep my notes in. I write my menu, budget, timelines, even a copy of the invitation. When it’s over, I write a bit on who came, who needs a thank you and amount of food prepared vs. Amount needed for crowd, along with anything else noteworthy.
Slowly but surely, I save time, money & sanity by looking back at what worked & what didn’t. Someday, I’ll have some printables to share but right now I’m still just taking notes :).
How about you? Do you have a party planning notebook?
