More often than not, outdoor party planning proves to be quite challenging. There are a lot of details to consider and many things that can slip through the cracks. Naturally, party planning has become a popular career choice, as many people don’t want to host events on their own. 

However, if you’re set on planning a party on your own, we have no doubt that you can do it successfully. That being said, we want to provide a little help. Keep reading for a quick guide on how to plan flawless outdoor parties.

Assess Your Budget

First, you need to check your financing to avoid going over your budget or planning a party outside your means. If you already know what your budget is, do some research to find out more about the costs of outdoor parties.

Find the Right Venue

Now that you know what your budget is, you can start looking at ideal locations for outdoor parties. Look into public parks, private property, and BLM land. 

Some places might require permits, payments, and reservations. However, much of this comes down to the size of your event and the type of event you’re hosting. 

Create a Guest List and Send Out Invitations

Next, start planning your guest list. This is one of the most important parts of planning outdoor events. 

If it’s a private event, determine who you want to invite and send out invitations. If your hosting a public event, like a concert or festival, or charity run, this means marketing your event for maximum exposure in the community.

Be sure to give your guests plenty of time before the event to plan accordingly. This is a vital rule in planning outdoor parties. 

Plan the Outdoor Logistics

Finally, you need to think about all of the logistics of planning outdoor events. For example, are there any outdoor party themes that are intriguing to you? If it’s a birthday party, you might consider playground parties. 

Regardless, you need to think about the other aspects of your event that will determine its success. This includes:

  • Catering
  • Entertainment (live bands, DJs, Stage magicians, etc.)
  • Bartending services
  • Portable bathrooms
  • And more

In terms of renting portable toilets, you have multiple options. You can rent a few basic porta potties or provide your guests with luxury bathroom trailers. Luxury bathroom trailers are perfect for weddings and other upscale events because they add a level of sophistication.
