If you’re a parent, you’re probably very aware of how important birthday parties are. Whether you have 10 daughters, one son, or any combination of children, you have to make sure that each year’s birthday offers something good to remember.
And most important of all is the teenage milestone of turning 16 years old.
Sweet 16 parties are looked at (in your children’s eyes, at least) as one of the most important days of a young person’s life. It’s your job as a parent to make sure that your child’s 16th birthday party is amazing. No matter how much you plan on spending — sweet 16 parties for teenage girls can cost anywhere from $300 to even more than $25,000 — as long as you’re careful and plan ahead, the party should be a success.
Here are some things to consider in order to keep your teen and all of their guests happy during a party.
Even if you’ve had a successful track record of throwing great parties, you should be sure to start planning as soon as possible for this milestone event. Something can always go wrong when it comes to party planning so it’s important to have backup and emergency plans just in case. The longer you give yourself to plan for the upcoming party, the more time you’ll have to plan for these emergencies. Your child will surely thank you for it.
Know who the party is for
Obviously the 16th birthday party is for your child turning 16-years-old. But that doesn’t mean that every parent knows how to throw a party for a teenager. A lot of parents think about what they would want as a teenager and throw that kind of party, which can be a disaster. Be sure to actually talk to your child prior to making any party decisions and find out exactly what they enjoy and want out of the party. It won’t hurt to involve your child in the the decision making process (within reason) as you plan their party, either.
