Your Ultimate Checklist to an Awesome Party in Singapore
Throwing a party is for the bold and creative.
In fact, planning for a special occasion will always be a Herculean feat at the beginning. There are so many ideas to consider including the unintentional pressure from your guests. Of course, you want everyone to enjoy the party.
But no worries, take a deep breath, keep calm and start ticking the boxes in your party planning checklist.
Choose the Theme
From birthdays to weddings, a theme comes in handy when you don’t know where to start.
First, you need to decide whether you are going to have a specific theme such as an 80s-themed party or just a coloured theme like blue and white.
Take your time to list your ideas no matter how simple or trivial they are. Include the options for entertainment, food, party supplies in Singapore, and venue. Ask your family and friends which ideas they would love.
Once you have chosen a theme, you can start with creating a few detailed lists.
Know Your Budget
There are a lot of times when a party gets dictated by the budget you are allowed to spend. Many would love an out of town party but there will always be someone going, “You pay ah? I sure on!”
To set the budget, you need to know who will be chipping in – your friends, your parents, your colleagues, or just plain you? Once that is settled, you can now have the total amount you can spend on the upcoming event. You can divide the money between the lists of food, entertainment, venue, and so on.
Pick a Date and Time
Pick a date and time that most of your family and friends can attend. Do this in advance to give people enough time to save the date of your party in their calendars.
Create a Guest List
Of course, you need to make a list of people who will attend the party. Rock your brain and make a rough list. Go through it after a few days and you will surely make a few changes.
Next, you need to design your invitation based on your party’s theme. Make it quirky by putting a personal touch.
Now you we have a lot of social media apps, you can easily make a virtual invitation too.
Do not forget to ask everyone to RSVP and keep a record on who is definitely attending. Make sure that even the extra guests they may bring are listed. This way, you can book the right sized venue and number of caterers.
Book a Fun Venue
Take your time considering a couple of venues. Naturally, you will have to visit a few venues before you can decide the perfect spot. Book the venue as soon as possible and pay the deposit to make sure that it will be available for you on the day of the party.
Here are some unique options that you can try to throw a memorable party:
Take Your Party to the Sea
If you want to surely “wow” everyone, rent a yacht.
And before you tell me “It’s for rich people only lah…” you have to know that there are budget-friendly luxury catamaran yachts and boats for rent in Singapore.
This idea may not be the first to come into mind when you want to throw a birthday party or a bridal shower, but it will surely be a memorable one especially that most people think it is too posh.
You can choose between a Day Cruise, Sunset Cruise, or a 4 to 8-hour cruise. And if celebrating in a yacht is not enough, you can try heaps of water sports and ride a motorboat.
If you are still thinking about the expenses, you can breathe now since yacht rental companies offer budget yacht packages. The truth is, you can rent one for as low as $220 for a 2-hour family trip (SingExperience) or pay $399 (Sgyacht) for a 4-hour rendezvous good for 12 people. The fee includes the kitchen and entertainment amenities.
From here, you can incorporate a theme to your party. You will find our hip party supplies in Singapore the best when it comes to Ocean Adventure themes.

Solve a Mystery
Escape rooms games are quickly becoming a phenomenon.
The rule can be put simply as “you have to escape from a locked room in a set time limit.” Each room has a unique storyline and puzzles to be solved. But the adrenaline, excitement, and perhaps time pressure will surely make someone scream or snap at other people.
If you want to see your friends handle pressure in a fun way or you just want to make a surprise birthday party, an escape room is the best option for you. It’s cheap too. You can play for as low as $22 per person.
Want to add more surprising elements? Party Shop Singapore has Surprise Balloon Boxes which we can personalize for birthdays and wedding proposals.
If the venue does not supply plates, cutlery, and so on, you need to sit down and work out exactly what you need. Be specific with your list.
This can range from table napkins, dishes, bowls, scissors, extension cords, trash bags, and even duct tape. Note which party store can supply you your needs or where you can get them near you. Your friends can also chip in with the sound system and other items.
Never Cut Corners
Many party planners have a limited budget to spend but this does not mean that you should cut corners and ruin the party. Cutting corners is skipping necessary party elements to save time or money – especially on the theme, entertainment and the food.
If you want your party to be successful, leaving out the small extras that you can do without rather than sacrificing the quality of crucial party elements.
To save up, you can find a one-stop party store in Singapore such as Party Shop SG (wink).
Make a Back-Up Plan
Murphy’s Law says “If something can go wrong, it will.” Such is life. When you think that everything will be great, there will be something that can ruin the party. It may be the weather, no-show of the DJ, electric or heating failures, and much more.
Unexpected things happen when you least expect it.
With so many parties that our team has handled and attended, I can say that what saves the day is keeping your cool and having a backup plan included in the party planning checklist.
