Teen Party Basics

….

Nothing is more fun (and at times, more trying) than hosting a teen party. Party Idea Pros will walk you through every step of planning your teen’s birthday party by providing professional recommendations on just about every detail of your celebration including theme ideas, invitations, party and table decor, centerpieces, and party favors. And if we forget something, feel free to remind us.

The biggest difference in hosting a teen or sweet sixteen party and other parties is the “security” issue. Please seriously sit down with your teen prior to the party to discuss your views on the subjects of the use of alcohol by teen guests and other inappropriate behaviors. Make it absolutely clear what behaviors will and will not be tolerated. Also be clear you and other adults will be supervising the party and will not hesitate to ask anyone not following your rules to leave immediately. Do not be too disappointed if your teen chooses not to have a party after this discussion. We understand how embarrassing it is to have your parents lurking around, however, your teen needs to understand that you are legally and morally responsible for all behaviors at the party.

Another “security “ issue is the guest list. We recommend that only those on your teen’s guest list be allowed into the party and once in, they must stay in. Do not, we repeat, do not allow the guests in and out access unless you are willing to live with the consequences and legal liability. Warning: if you do not control your guests on the front end, the chances of losing control of the party are increased dramatically. We also recommend all purses, backpacks, and bags of any kind be checked at the entrance. This will not only protect you and your guest against theft but will also insure that unwanted beverages and other illegal products do not mysteriously make their way into the party. Yes, we may be cynical, and you obviously know your teen and your community best, so ultimately how strict you choose to be is a personal decision. But in party planning, our rule of thumb is to always be prepared for the worst rather than surprised by the unexpected.
