Host A Party Bar in 5 Easy Steps

I’m ready for spring! I’m ready to plan some gatherings with family and friends. For me, that means it’s the perfect time to host a party bar! Easter weekend provides the perfect opportunity. I definitely don’t want to be tied to my kitchen all weekend. A party bar means I’ll be able to host a casual but beautiful brunch, and enjoy visiting with my family during the event. Best of all, I won’t be tied to the kitchen for days next week preparing for it.

Hosting a Party Bar should be fun for you as the hostess. I’ve found planning party bars to be easy as well. The hardest part of planning a party bar, for me, is selecting which printables to use for my party bar. I love them all!

I follow the same 5 steps whenever I host a party bar. I work well when I follow some sort of structure. These simple steps work for any party bar!

Host a Party Bar in 5 Easy Steps

  1. Decide on Event
  2. Decide on a Party Bar
  3. Invite Guests
  4. Set up any Errands, Cleaning, or Organizing Tasks in Any.do
  5. Create Shopping List

Don’t forget, guests can bring toppings or mix-ins for party bars. This makes hosting and attending a party bar easier for everyone! It’s simple and fun to host a salad party bar where everyone brings their favorite salad topping; and, it’s easier for your guests to bring a container of chopped broccoli or sliced cucumbers than it is for them to make a potluck dish.

Letting my guests know about our upcoming brunch was a snap. This is a small event with just family, and social media really has made it easy for our family to stay connected. A quick Facebook message to everyone was all it took. I’m so glad I no longer have to spend hours making phone calls to everyone to coordinate a meal with extended family.

I mentioned using Any-do for planning events in a previous post. I use it for all my planning and love it. It’s a great tool for keeping myself organized. For example, we have family coming for the weekend. I want to be sure to have the shopping done and house ready before they arrive. Instead of trying to get a bunch of tasks completed in one day, I’ve scheduled one or two things to do over the next 10 days. I’ve also added my shopping list. I’m able to grab things and cross it off the list as I see it on sale. The list was easy to add. I just listed shopping items from my Party Bar eBook. It has a shopping and toppings list as well as recipes.

There are endless ideas for party bars. Here are a few suggestions to get you started!
