Yesterday your daughter was learning how to ride a bicycle; circling the cul-de-sac on training wheels. Today, she’s learning how to drive a car. The years certainly fly by for parents, which is why it’s so important to celebrate our children’s biggest milestones. Are you planning a Sweet 16 in Washington, D.C.? Discover how to get started with tips from Raptor Productions!
Pick a Date
It would make sense to hold the Sweet 16 on the date of the honoree’s birthday, but it doesn’t always have to be on that specific date. If her birthday doesn’t land on a weekend, pick the two weekends that are closest. Consult close family and friends about the two dates, and choose the option that works best for your family and guests.
Before you choose a theme or finalize the guest list, talk to your daughter about the event. Inviting family members is important, but she’ll have more fun if the guest list includes friends from her classes and extracurricular activities. Ask her to draw up a vision board for the event, and use this as a reference for the rest of the planning process.
Secure a Venue
Washington, D.C. is one of the largest cities in the United States, so it’s important to book a venue as soon as possible. Narrow the search down to three possible options, then make your selection based on location, size, and other accommodations.
Hire a Reputable DJ
A Sweet 16 birthday party is an important event, and the entertainment could take it to the next level. Don’t rely on your Spotify playlist to get the party started. Trust a professional DJ to elevate the mood and encourage friends and family to dance and sing. Only a professional DJ has the tools and expertise to throw an extraordinary party.
