Back in the day, I prepped for parties by spending hours and hours making 12 different dishes from scratch, and designing an artful tablescape and a handmade favor for each guest. But now, I just want to look like I spent hours on party planning—even though I really just pointed and clicked for about 20 minutes to put the whole thing together.

If you want the secret to planning a perfect party fast, these food and decor delivery services are about to become your new best friends.

Order up a tablescape

Mismatched plates and dishes can be an aesthetic choice—or can just make your party feel a little haphazard. If you don't have a full china set for 12 sitting in your cabinet (or the one you have feels a little too formal for your party plan), opt to order some dinnerware instead. The bonus: You don't even have to do the dishes—you can simply wipe them down and let the rental place handle the deep clean.

Decide on a party menu

Obviously, you could always order takeout (usually online) from nearby restaurants through sites like DoorDash, UberEats, or the restaurant's own site. But with a few clicks, you can order something wow-worthy from places farther afield.

You can always order decadent treats from Goldbelly or Williams-Sonoma—but there are plenty of other cool places to order sweets for your guests.
