The Party is Over and It’s Time to Assess

We spend a lot of time planning and preparing for celebrations. Once the party is over, it’s important to take a few minutes to assess the success of the party.  Use our printable Event and Party Assessment Chart to analyze your party, so that your next one turns out even better.

There are three sections:

  • What worked well
  • What didn’t work
  • Things to do next time

Assessing the event

Be sure to think about all of the phases of your party:

Planning: invitations, guests, date time

Meal: food, timing of appetizers

Set up: decorations, plates/napkins, flow of room

Here are some questions to ask yourself:

Were the right people invited?  Too many people?  Not enough?
Was there enough time for guests to talk and socialize?
Were you happy with the food preparation and selections?

How did the beverages work out?  Did you have enough to serve?
Did the dessert work out well?

Use the last section of the form to jot down any additional comments and thoughts.

Happy planning!
