Sweet Sixteen Party – The Do’s and Don’ts of Planning a Party
A Sweet Sixteen party is something most girls look forward too. Its important to remember that this is just a party not a wedding. But it’s an important party. How do you find a balance between a regular birthday party and a formal, expensive affair? We’ve collected some important do’s and don’ts for throwing a successful sweet sixteen party!
DO! Make a plan. It’s important to have a theme for your party. Pick something that you can get creative with like a Beach Theme, Carnival Theme, or Winter Wonderland. This will make your party cohesive and also give you a concrete set of things you need to buy.
DO! Stick to the budget. Decide on how much you want to spend and stick to it! A sweet sixteen is an important party, but its not the most important party. This isn’t a wedding and you don’t want to go overboard.
DONT! Don’t go into the store without an idea of what you need. You don’t want to overspend so it’s important to have a set idea of what you need. This way you won’t be just picking up anything you see and you’ll save money.
DO! Make an invite list and require people to RSVP. You need to know how many people are coming so you can pick the right location to hold your party. Once you have an idea of how many people will be coming, you can book the correct space and order the correct amount of food.
DONT! Don’t have unrealistic expectations. Shows like “My Super Sweet Sixteen” on MTV may give teens the idea that they need to get a car or have an extravagant party. This is your party. You don’t need to do what everyone else is doing. Stick with what you want for your party. This is your special day. Have fun with it!
