When my daughter was about to turn 16 a few years ago, I knew that I wanted it to be a party that she would remember. I started evaluating things like budget and schedule, and I realized that we could afford to throw her a pretty great party. The only problem was that I didn't know how to get started. I began talking with different professionals in the area to figure out how to handle things, and I learned a lot along the way. This blog is all about planning a great party by knowing what to do and what to avoid.
