Getting ready to plan a family member or friend’s birthday party? You want to honor this person on their special day and it’s important to you that you make sure the birthday person gets their favorite food. Here are a few tips for planning that will help the party be an event to remember for years to come.

Decide if you will be paying for the party or if you will have the guests pay for themselves.

How many guests will you invite?

Also, find the restaurant and make sure they can accommodate your party, for example if you need to schedule it for a time they are normally closed or see if they have a room for large groups.

Talk with management at the restaurant to find out if there are options for a limited menu for the party.

Make out the invitations, with the pertinent information—if guests will have to pay, if gifts are necessary, dress code, time, day and a request for RSVP along with any food allergies so you can work with the restaurant to plan the menu accordingly.
