Throw the best party of the season

Read Article

Let’s be honest, everyone loves a party but very few love planning one. With the holidays approaching the chances of planning a holiday get together are pretty high. I found a few apps that will help you manage all aspects of planning your next soiree from concept to menu design. Not all of these apps are free but they’ll definitely help you throw the best party of the season!

Pro Party Planner

The Pro Party Planner app helps you manage your event from start to finish. There’s a section for all your party needs: guest list, menu, drinks, entertainment, decorations and favors. Even better: organizational tabs for the shopping list, tasks list and party timeline keep everything in order.

Speakeasy Cocktails

Not much of a mixologist? Enter the Speakeasy Cocktails app. It has everything you need to create cool, party-perfect drinks. The how-to app includes HD video tutorials, instructional graphics, hundreds of recipes, a buying guide and a glossary with 190 key liquor terms.

Liza’s Simple Soirée Party Planner

This app provides an easy-to-use guide for entertaining. Event planning expert Liza Rivera Salta put her tried and tested tips into a simple interface so that you can plan your menu, record RSVPs and coordinate shopping lists all in one place.


If you plan to cook for a group, the free Pepperplate app is an ideal way to manage your recipes and combine dishes into a customized menu for the event. The best part: multiple cooking timers help you stay sane during the prep period.


A party is so much better when you’ve got good music to back it up. Spotify gives you instant access to millions of songs on your mobile device. With the Spotify app, you can choose to listen for free, or subscribe to Spotify Premium. U.S. users can listen to radio for free. Discover and save music on the go! If your station plays a song you really like, save it with a single tap. Unlimited songs and stations — listen forever!
