what do for a sweet 16

Barbara - posted on 03/07/2014 ( 1 mom has responded )




My daughter is going to be 16 next march and of course most of her friends are having these beautiful formal sweet 16 parties like a mini wedding. She does competition dance and I cant tell you how the money flies out the window, leaving no money or time for anyone or anything else. With another child in the family and other priorities, paying for an elaborate party is not an option. Anyone have other ideas?

I didn't even have a party for my 16th, I was working full time by then and it just happened that the company Christmas party was on my 16th birthday.
Just because everyone else is doing elaborate parties doesn't mean you have to. If you can't afford it let your daughter know that she won't be getting a big 16th. Instead ask her what she would like to do.
