  • Book an event venue. 69% of event planners select venues based on word-of-mouth recommendations. 58% will use search engines and 34% use online listings and marketplaces.

  • Arrange entertainment. Great party ideas for adults include DIY personal pizza stations, DJs, and themed photo booths.

  • Make a guest list. Guest list etiquette states that party planners should give hosts or key stakeholders a strict number of people they can invite.
