So you want to plan a vision board party. Well, as someone who just hosted a very successful one, I’ll explain how. It’s rather simple and it was an idea that came about randomly. I knew it wouldn’t take much thought to put together and it would be a fun excuse to bring close friends together for an afternoon of fellowship and fun.
I am going to start this post off with a tip. Google Docs is the best. I used google docs to plan out my party and create a contact list for attendees.
Unless you have the space, its important not to invite too many people since this is a huge arts and crafts task that requires time and space. Also since a vision board party outlines someone’s inner most desires for their present and future be mindful of who you invite and make sure everyone is encouraging to one another.
Figure out a date, time and location. I sent all my invites via e-vite. I found a cute template and the rest was history. Most importantly, my invitations didn’t cost a dime and I was able to keep track of who viewed the invitation and rsvps.
The invite encouraged people to answer the following questions:
- What is my vision for my life?
- What are my dreams?
- What do I need to do to achieve my dreams?
- How much of my past is shaping the way I think and what I do? Is it effecting my present and future?
I also encouraged people to bring their own magazines.
What’s your budget for a party like this? It may all depend on the amount of attendees invited, but you have to set a strict budget and stick with it. Mine was $100 but of course I went over.
- Poster Boards
- Garbage Bags
- Rubber Bands
- Plates, Cups, Utensils
Food and Beverages
My vision board party was entitled EnVision and Sip which meant I served wine and non-alcholic beverages for my guests. My food of choice was Lasagna. We served two types of lasagna-veggie and beef with garlic bread and hors d’oeuvres. I gave everyone a cake pop to go home with as a thank you in addition to their vision boards.
Figure out a reason for this party. Are you trying to figure out your life? Will you share your story or other encouraging words for your guests? Will you allow your guests to speak? These are the things you have to know. I made it clear to my guests that they would have to present their vision boards. Luckily for me, everyone was more than happy to.
Have an example
As the host create your vision board beforehand. This is important. It’s not safe to assume everyone knows how to create a vision board or even knows what it is (which was the case with my party). A lot of my attendees asked for an example.
It takes a lot for someone to be vulnerable and reveal what they want out of life. I am so happy that all my guests came out and envisioned with me. I created a Thank You Newsletter on Mailchimp, for each of my guests filled with their pictures from the party, contact information among other things. People really loved it.
Now that’s how you plan a vision board party.
