Top 6 Most Stressful Moments When Hosting A
Party & How to Get Some Relief
1. Making sure you have everything you need can be difficult
This can cause the most stress when you’re planning a party because you stay awake at night
trying to remember… did I get that? did I do that? did I tell this person, that thing?
All these last minute thoughts can be less stressful with proper structures. Try these tips.
● Create a checklist – brings clarity to your party and declutters your mind. Time is
precious leading up to the day of your event. Making sure you’re efficient when getting
your supplies helps to maximize your efforts.
● Label the stores where you’ll need to visit
– If you’re hosting an event for more than
just a few people you’ll likely need to go to multiple stores. Having the specific items
listed for each store will help you quickly get in and out.
● Download our Checklist this is a great starting point for common items to make sure
you have when hosting a party.
2. Getting feedback from your invite list can be hard
Wouldn’t it be great if our invite list told us everything like when they will be there, how many are
coming, or if they’re coming at all? Well, we all know, that doesn’t always happen.
Here’s what you can do to fix that.
● Create electronic invites
Evite is a quick, easy, and free way to create an invite for
your event. You’ll be able to easily see who has viewed, responded, or accepted your
● Set an RSVP date giving your guests a set date to RSVP by helps to clear up any
ambiguity on when they need to respond to attend. Not only that, but doing this helps
you understand how many people you’ll need to feed. It’s not rude, it’s clarifying.
● Send a final reminder life can be hectic. It’s great to remind people of your event 3
days before the final RSVP date. Tell them you’re ordering all the supplies and you want
to make sure they’re fed if they’re wanting to attend.
3. The (extra) work you want to add to the party plan is unrealistic
For whatever reason, we love to create a long honeydo list right before a big event. For
instance, fix the sliding door, paint the bedroom, buy a new bedspread, and the list goes on.
Here are few suggestions to STOP DOING THAT.
● Be realistic
Add the top 3 honey do’s that will make the biggest impact
● Hire extra help
We hosted a party and the owners hired a landscape crew to update
the entire property with mulch. BIG WIN! and it didn’t cost them more than an hours time
● Get creative instead of thinking about all the new things you want, figure out a way to
highlight the elements of the party that already work. REMEMBER this is the first time
your guests have ever joined you… everything is new to them!
4. Going BIG and over the top actually causes more stress
Like most people, we want to impress. That’s okay. What’s not okay is going too far and getting
sidetracked into the wrong dimension.
Here’s a couple examples of that you're taking things too far.
● Hiring a clown, bounce house, and petting zoo is great for your kids 5yo party! But when
you spent weeks trying to contact the Ringling Brothers Circus to get a private show, you
might be overstressing.
● Locking down the perfect wedding venue is exactly what you want to do. But,
● Having a clean cut yard and wellkept hedges looks awesome. If you’re about to hire
someone to paint your yard like the Dallas Cowboy’s Endzone you’re probably going
5. Making people happy is difficult
We all want to make sure that our guests are having a good time and enjoying themselves. This
means that they aren’t going without the things that they want like food, their favorite drinks, and
Here are just a few simple ways to make sure this happens:
● Ask them what they want
– sending out a form to get food and beer preference is a
quick and easy way to make sure that your guests have a voice.
● Have a little variety – not everyone can or likes to eat and drink the same things. It’s
always good to get some glutenfree food options and buy a few classic beers like Bud
Light and Corona Light. They aren’t the most glamourous but to some it’s a comfortable.
● Set up specific areas
– Lots of decorations look great but people love to congregate
and talk. Set up chairs and tables in areas for people to sit down, relax and hangout.
6. Why everyone is going to be happy
This one is the most important the day of the event. There will NEVER be an event where every
person is happy. It’s not you, it’s them. Stressing over making everyone happy will cause you to
not enjoy the party that you worked so hard to prepare. Plan your event and then have a great
time making memories.
