Your life is filled with limitless celebration-worthy events, so don’t let the logistics of event planning how-to’s get in your way.
We’re on a mission to revolutionize the party scene of womanhood, making sure women from all walks and stages of life feel empowered to celebrate their lives, successes, and milestones as they see fit.
Struggling to plan the perfect party? Whip out your event planning checklist and get ready to take notes. Today we’re sharing a quick crash course to event planning….Party Positivity style!
We don’t think the celebratory champagne should be reserved for only weddings, birthdays, and graduation parties. Not that these things aren’t worthy causes for celebration, but there are so many alternative, non-traditional, milestone events that call for a major celebration, too. Party Positivity is here to revolutionize the party scene of womanhood.
Here are just a few examples of part positive celebrations that challenge the status quo:

The world is changing. Collectively, we’re saying goodbye to the oppressive and hello to the progressive! We’re trading outdated (and often patriarchal) traditions for fresh and revolutionary ones.
Remember: You’re allowed to celebrate your life on your terms, alternative cause-driven cakes and all. Women should be the ones defining which milestone events we can celebrate– not society, and certainly not social media feeds.
Planning any great party requires planning, planning, and more planning. Use this “How-To” cheat sheet to ensure nothing slips through the cracks!
Decide what you want to celebrate! Here are questions to ponder on for a party positive celebration:
Also, think about the vibe. Is it formal or casual? Is it a surprise? How big or small do you want to go? How will you celebrate diversity? (Event planning without inclusivity just isn’t Party Positivity’s style!). No matter what type of event you’re planning, it’s important to have a general vision for the celebration.
There are a few foundational things to keep in mind for any event, starting with the what, who, when, and where.
Will your guest list be intimate or will it be a large bash? (Remember that the size of the party will set the mood and tone!).
What type of food/appetizers, dessert, and drinks will be served? Consider incorporating your party positive theme into the names of your dishes or cocktails (e.g., banana splits for a divorce party or serving “spirit cocktails” in honor of a new spiritual journey). Ensure the cuisine fits the various palettes and dietary needs of your guests.
Will your celebration be based on a personal date? Or will your celebration date require a particular season, month, or day of observance?
And what venue would be most suitable for the vibe and size of your celebration? Parties are not bound to ballrooms, banquet halls, and bars. Transform your patio, garage, or backyard into a celebratory space. Or choose your fave brunch spot, yoga studio, or park as an alternative venue!
Once you’ve established those basic elements, you’ll also need to come up with a rough budget for the event. Don’t forget to leave room for the crucial event décor and party favors!
Finalize the theme and design of the event, and get ready to notify your guests about what’s to come! This is especially important if it is an occassion they have not been invited to before.
Here are important items to include on your event planning checklist.
You’re ready to make everything picture-perfect.
