Sweet 16 Series 02b – Budget and Theme

Sweet 16

This article is continued from the previous entry.

Formal Dinner or Buffet?

There is absolutely nothing wrong with offering a buffet at a Sweet 16. Just make sure that your guests leave their tables to serve themselves in an orderly fashion.  You want to avoid having one hundred guests standing in a long line all at once.  You might like to have your MC or DJ announce, “Tables 2 and 8, please join us at the buffet!” or something like that.

The Invitations:

You can call printers in your area and arrange an appointment to view their catalogs.  Many printers will offer you samples, and it’s a good idea to hold on to these so that you can compare them and make a good decision about which one you’ll choose.

Alternately, you can search for Invitations on line.  I’d highly recommend that you view our catalog at Sweet 16 Invitations.   We’ve been happily serving Sweet 16 Girls and their families since 2000. (more…)

Planning Ahead: Setting a Budget and Choosing a Theme

It should go without saying: The more time that you leave for yourself to plan the party, the easier it will be on you and the Sweet 16 Girl as the big day approaches.

I’d  recommend  that  as  early  as  a  year  and  a  half  before  the  girl’s 16th birthday, you begin  to consider your budget and options.  I’d advise against making  any purchases or putting down  any deposits  at  this time, because a lot can change in a year and a half.  But you’ll stand a better chance of making the best decisions if you’re not feeling pressured by the calendar.

Chanukah Downloads – Print Your Own

Chanukah is only a month away. That’s kind of hard to believe.  Here in New York City, we were still walking around in short sleeves a couple of weeks ago.  Yesterday was Halloween and as I walked the streets of Manhattan and Brooklyn,  autumn filled my senses.   I lost myself to the crisp air and […]

Free Download – Additional Letter Templates

Free Letter Template

In addition to this free download, we have posted two more designs in the Family Reunion section of our web site.  These files are announcements which can be customized for your own party, no matter what the occasion.  Then you can print them yourself on your own inkjet printer.

These particular styles are 8.5″ x 11″, so no cutting or trimming is necessary.  They can be barrel folded (folded into three segments) and mailed in a standard A11 business envelope.  Print as few or as many of them as is needed for your party.

If you are having any trouble downloading these files or following the tutorial, please leave your remarks in the Comments section and I’ll reply to you as soon as I can. (more…)
