On the big day, make sure that everyone finds the venue, you could use a large birthday party banner outside.

Create a Guest List
It is so important that you are able to create a guest list for the party and there are a few reasons for this.

When you have a guest list, you can also plan out how much food and drink you need to have as well.
Consider the Location
Of course, no party would be complete without choosing the right location. If you know that you need to have an elaborate party then choose a venue that will help you to get this done. If you want to have a small party then make sure that you accommodate for this as well. If you want to keep the cost low then a fantastic way for you to do this would be for you to make sure that you are having it at your house or a friends. If you are planning on dining then having a restaurant reservation is crucial. Most restaurants can easily make reservations for 25 people or more with ease. If you have any guests that are in a wheelchair then it is so important that you are able to plan for this and you also need to work with the restaurant to make sure that everyone is going to be able to park up as well. After all, it is little things like this that can make a huge difference and when you are able to take this into account you can be sure to make the whole thing into a success.
