This month, in addition to planning a cultural celebration, you should also find a way to survey your "clients." This can mean any friends or family for whom you would someday like to plan a party. Ask them the following questions and then examine your results. What did their answers tell you about why it is important for party planners to listen to and learn from their clients?
1) What was your favorite party as a child? Why?
2) What do you like best about parties now? Food, music, decorations, friends?
3) If you could plan a party for your FAVORITE holiday or occasion, what party would you plan and why? What would you be sure to include?
4) If someone were planning a party for you, what should they know about you and your personality and tastes?
