Planning a Sweet 16

Planning a special Sweet 16 is always a stressful experience. Something is bound to go wrong whether you’ve planned it over and over again or gotten every detail nailed down. But don’t fret yet! Here are a few helpful tips to help keep your Sweet 16 planning under control.

Find the Venue First

The venue is where all the magic is going to happen. If you don’t have the room/too much room, the party’s going to look either crowded or empty. You want to find the perfect sized space in order to get the full effect of a rocking party without finding it hard to maneuver around. This will also allow you to fill the space with your many decorative ideas/entertainment. Make sure you get the proper space required for the big idea!

Keep Everything in a Planner

There’s going to be a lot of things you’re going to handle in order to make this huge party a success. Entertainment, the cake, the dresses, the decorations, etc. is going to take up a lot of your time. Keep track of all of this information in one place. If you don’t you may be looking around the house for a receipt that needs to be refunded or anything that could go wrong will go wrong. Always being prepared to deal with new situations that are presented to you would be key to the success of your party!

Plan the Right Menu

This will also include the cake, because we want to make sure everyone can enjoy a piece of that beautiful cake you just bought! The menu is extremely important because that is what is going to keep your guests energized. Go with something that the birthday girl is going to enjoy and keeps your guest’s stomach full. You want to run out of food for the best reasons, not because it’s all in the trash!


With these few tips, you’ll be sure to keep everything in check as the Sweet 16 unfolds!
