    Both are correct. The difference is so slight as to be insignificant. One could suggest the first refers to making the party possible whereas the second (for) is more about making the party successful. However, this could be seen as splitting hairs, as well as more imagination than reality.

    the first one after the party, the latter before the party

    The first would be more common. The second is not grammatically wrong, but it's a little strange. "For" in this case, means "for the benefit of". I suppose you could be benefitting the party, but it would be more common to say "Did you bring the fruit for the guests?" or "did you bring the fruit for everyone?"--- meaning "for the benefit of everyone."
