This year I am planning my sister Jenna’s birthday party. She is turning 50. Since this is a milestone birthday, I want to make it special and memorable. I know she always likes house parties so I was going to host it at my house with family and her close friends.
Having ample time to prepare will allow me to throw a relatively hassle-free birthday party. I made a list on my Penless Idea Board https://www.penless.com/ so I wouldn’t forget anything. I included the following:
- Choose the date
- Pick the venue
- Finalize guest list
- Send invitations
- Formulate a budget
- Plan the menu
- Make a shopping list
- Decide on theme
- Rent high top tables & heaters
- Buy decorations
Most of this was pretty easy. Since her birthday falls on a Saturday, that was the day of the party. It was going to be in my backyard, so the venue was set. I am going to hire caterers which will supply all the food, set up and clean up. Doesn’t get much easier than that!
I want the backyard to look very festive, so I went to get some twinkle lights, pretty table cloths and nice centerpieces.
One thing my sister is going to love is getting the birthday themed Penless greeting card. Penless has a variety of greeting cards but one is specifically for birthdays. I am giving a few to my friends who haven’t downloaded the Penless app yet. After downloading the app, all they have to do is upload a video or picture onto the QR code. Jenna is going to love getting all the personalized cards. Since I know she already has the Penless app, she just has to scan the QR code and enjoy.
As far as the invitations, I am sending a nice card with a Penless sticker. The guests can scan the sticker and it will have all the information they need for the party.
I can’t wait to welcome my sister and all the guests to my house and have a great time.
