3 Tips for Planning a Sweet 16 Party, Reading, Ohio

Turning 16 is a big deal, and trying to plan the perfect party for your teen can be overwhelming. Many factors go into planning an event, and you need to take care of them methodically and early. Luckily, there are steps you can follow, and by covering all of the bases and working with a party-planning professional, you can be confident you create something your teen will enjoy and remember forever.

How to Plan a Sweet 16 Celebration

1. Set Expectations

Before you do anything, you need to know what’s essential, how much you can spend, and the pertinent details of the event, such as how many guests you’ll invite. This is a good time to secure a venue, so you know your limitations. Keep your teen involved, as they’ll have plenty of insight. This is also the perfect time to partner with a professional who specializes in planning an event; you’ll find that the process is much more organized and less stressful.

2. Select a Theme

3. Create a Schedule

Once you have all of the big picture details in place, sit down with your party-planning professional to organize a schedule for the party. Take into account special activities, guest arrivals, games, dining, dancing, presentations, and time to mingle. This will give you a definite game plan for the day and eliminate many what-ifs that can create stress and confusion.
