If your daughter is turning sixteen years old, she's more than likely so excited that she can hardly stand it. For one thing, this might be the year that she will get a driver's license. Perhaps she has been waiting until her sixteenth birthday to go on her first date. While she is full of excitement, you might be feeling a bit melancholy. After all, turning sixteen years old more than likely means that your daughter will soon be graduating from high school and going away to college, or even getting her own apartment as she starts a job. Meanwhile, it's time to celebrate this special birthday, right? From hiring a band for your daughter's sixteenth birthday party to helping her be a gracious hostess, here are some ideas that might help you.
Hire A Party Band To Celebrate - If your daughter and her friends love music, they probably love dancing, too. If that's the case, think of hiring a party band from a company like Band X Live to help the celebration be an extra special one. The party band you hire will more than likely be determined at least in part by how much money you want to spend. If you're going all out and money is no major concern, consider going with a professional band that is accustomed to playing at events like weddings, anniversary parties, and corporate events. However, if you want to save some money, consider hiring a band that consists of players right from your daughter's high school. Think of checking with the band director at the school to see if he or she has a band that he or she can recommend. No matter which band you select, think about asking the band leader to play songs like Sixteen Candles. Also, think of asking the band to play something like The Way You Look Tonight for your daughter to dance with her dad.
Help Your Daughter To Be A Great Hostess - While it is natural that the focus of the party will probably be on your daughter, this is also a great time for her to use the skills and the conduct that she has probably learned throughout her life. When it's time for refreshments, remind her that guests are served first. Remind her to look out for people who seem to be alone so that she can tactfully incorporate them into part of a group. And, of course, remind her to send thank you notes after the event is over.
