Life Well Lived: Getting Organized and a Kindle Fire giveaway!



As Spring rolls right on in, it's time to start thinking about parties. Why? Because as the weather continues to warm, BBQ season is fast-approaching! BlogHer's Life Well Lived panel wants to know what your best tip is for hosting a get-together that is enjoyable and stress-free for both the host and the guests.

For me, having a list of RSVPs is essential. There's nothing that makes me more crazy than not knowing who to expect at a party. So, if you're throwing the party it's important to give guests the necessary RSVP info. Can they text you or email you their response? Would you rather they call? Is there an e-vite on Facebook to which they should reply? Pick one or two and stick with them. I don't think it hurts to follow up a few days prior to the event if people have not yet responded. I hosted a party last year and I was still getting last-minute replies THE DAY OF. Super stressful.

And with that said, if you're asked to RSVP, please do! It is so important! Food and party favors may be planned based on the number attending, so give your host the courtesy of a response. Even if it's a negative, just do it.
