Pick a theme
Not just for the dress code. Go all out (without over-doing it, of course). Traditional, contemporary, vintage, whatever look you decide, incorporate nuances of it in everything from the invitation to the food.
Pro Tip: Have a signature cocktail to go with your theme.

And last but not the least, keep it lively
Not everyone at your party will know each other. And the last thing you need is awkward silence. Keep things moving! Card games, live music; make your guests have something to keep them entertained.

Now, that you have the basics sorted; start planning already.
