Tips on How to Plan a Great Party for Your Teenager

If party planning doesn't come naturally to you, it can feel like a very stressful process. This is especially true for parents who are naturally introverted. However, it's important for your child to socialize and create memories. If your child is at the age where they can verbalize that they'd like to have a party, make it happen. Consider the following ways you can make sure your child has an amazing party.

1. Create an itinerary.

A timeline will help you to make sure there's no lull in the party. If the party is from 4 to 6 pm, make sure that there's entertainment to last that time. Write down when you'd like to cut the cake, serve the food and play different games. If things are running late, you can adjust. However, it's best to make sure the kids are entertained during the time they're at your child's birthday party.

2. Determine what the menu and decor will look like.

Think about what your child's favorite foods are. It's also wise to consider your budget, allergies and preparation. If it's a lot easier to order a ton of pizzas, that's totally fine. Then, you can focus on purchasing large bags of chips, trays of cookies and the birthday cake. Ask your child what they'd like the theme to be. The theme will help you decide whether you should include inflatables new jersey or another option.

3. Solicit help.

Consider asking one of your close friends if they'd be willing to help you through the process. Let them know that party planning isn't your forte. Truthfully, you should have a few friends that you can reach out to. Once you communicate your needs and your friends agree to help out, begin to actively delegate. One friend can help with the party set-up on the day of the event. Another friend might be willing to create the e-invitations to send out to a specific email list of parents. Once you can check off a lot of these major tasks, you'll be able to enjoy a great time. Try not to put so much pressure on yourself. It can be an amazing experience for all. Plan accordingly. Then, you can relax.
