Finding a venue for the celebration is your next task. This could be as simple as using your place or neighbors' home, perfect if you need to keep costs down. If so, you will need to decide if the party will be indoors or outdoors. If a residence isn't available, then you can choose from a private room in a restaurant, hotel suite, or a VIP room at a nightclub. Find out if you will be able to use your own decorations. Some people choose the party bus option to make planning easy. If you are searching for the best venue to rent, then start planning at least 6 weeks in advance. Certain times of the year - the Christmas holidays in particular - are the busiest for restaurants. The more tables you need, the harder it will be in acquiring reservations. In that case, you will want to make reservations further out in the calendar. You will also need to consider the time of year when planning the food, as catering services are especially busy during the holiday season.
