From creating a menu to choosing the location of your celebration, planning parties can be fun. However, there are some things you need to put into consideration before planning a party to avoid stories that touch.

Money

You want to plan a party and you don’t have money, “are you kidding me?” Even if you have a thousand in your account, it’s not enough to say you want to plan a party. With the high cost of food utensils in the market, your money won’t cover appetizers, talk less of the main course or dessert. If you want to plan a party, you need loads of cash in your account. 

Location

Another thing to consider is where you want to have the party. Is it your living room or a hall? When planning a party, location matters. The location of your party depends on the scale of the party you want. If you want a massive wedding with the whole of Africa in it, you can’t have that in your living room. On the other hand, a living room can be a perfect location for a simple birthday celebration.

Decoration

The decoration is greatly connected to the location. If the location you pick for your party has a nice setting, you won’t need to bother about decoration. If not, be ready to spend cash. The scale of decoration also depends on the scale of your party. If you’re having a simple parlour party, you can decorate yourself after checking videos online. If you’re using a hall for your party, you need an expert decorator. 

Guests

Don’t plan a party without looking at the calibre of guests you’d be bringing. In this part of the world, we don’t discriminate against guests that even “the friend of your friend’s friend” can come to your party..lol. The most important thing about this aspect is knowing the number of guests you’re expecting. Even at that, you have to make provision for extra guests. This is Nigeria you know(winks). 

Food

Food is the heart and soul of every party. Trust me, Nigerians don’t care about the amount of money you spend on getting your hall or how beautiful your wedding gown is. The major reason they’re coming to your party is to eat. If you don’t have enough to cater for food, don’t make the mistake of organizing a party. You already know Jollof and fried rice are the most popular food served at Nigerian parties. If you can afford it, you can also add amala and porridge. The size and category of food you prepare for your party depend on the scale of your party.

Aso-Ebi

Aso-ebi is our trademark in Nigeria. Whether funerals, weddings or naming ceremonies, we Nigerians will always find a reason to pick aso-ebi. The only party where aso-ebi is not so common are birthdays. But don’t be surprised if picking aso-ebi for birthdays soon becomes a trend 🤣 Speaking of aso-ebi, I wonder how it would look like if white people also start picking general wears for their parties as well. Anyways, when picking aso-ebi, ensure it’s something unique and yet affordable so your guests don’t swear for you. Picking aso-ebi makes your party look united in a way. Still, not all parties require aso-ebi. A good example is a simple parlour party.

Music

Music is the livewire of every party. When your guests are done eating and drinking, the remaining thing is to boggy down. For music, the type of guests you’re expecting at your party will determine the kind of music you’d prepare for. You obviously can’t play Fuji all through a youth’s party or Afro-pop Afro at a party filled with eighties blood. You have to balance the equation. Also, you have to decide whether you’ll be bringing a DJ over to spice up the party or you’ll be using your home’s mp3. If your party is high scale, you might need to invite talented musicians like Kizz Daniel or King Sunny Ade to grace the occasion. 

Once you consider these things and you make the right decision, trust me, you’d have the greatest party of all time. I’m waiting to receive your invite oo!
