Tips on How To Plan a Super Sweet 16

A Sweet 16 is a party to mark a teenage girl’s passage to early adulthood. In some cultures, a more formal event is held to welcome the girl into another stage of maturity in her life and the society. It is also often referred to as a “coming out” ceremony.

Sweet 16 coming out

For most girls, turning Sweet Sixteen is an important part of her transition into adulthood, and is considered a close second to her wedding. That is why planning a Sweet Sixteen birthday party is something that should not be taken lightly as just another birthday party.

To-Do List 

Pre-planning: 2 to 3 months before the party

Planning a Sweet Sixteen party can take a lot of time depending on how detailed you want the party to be.

  1. Decide on a date. The date doesn’t have to fall exactly on the day of the birthday. It can be after. Make sure you consider the holidays and schedule accordingly. You don’t want an empty birthday party.
  2. Select your venue. Picking a location for such a big event can be a daunting task. You need to keep in mind how many guests you’ll be having and of course your budget. Aside from a ballroom or party hall, you can use your yard, a local park, or a community center.
  3. Who will be attending? While some girls want an intimate party with just close friends and family, some will want a big, elaborate one. Be sure to plan out in advance the guest list.
  4. Send save-the-dates notice. Since the big bash is months away, it’s a good idea to send a save the date magnet first so the guests will not plan anything on that date.
  5. Order an appropriate Sweet Sixteen invitation. Once you finalize the venue, date, and guest list it’s time to order your sweet 16 invitations

Planning the Details: 2-8 weeks before the party

During this phase of the planning you’ll be taking care of the important details of the party. You many need some help so don’t hesitate to ask for one.

  • Theme – pick out a theme that will make the party unforgettable for the birthday girl as well as the guest. Be sure to ask her opinion as she might already have something in mind. Young girls can be very creative!
  • Food – this is where most of your budget will go. You can have the event catered or have a home-cooked buffet. If the event is at a restaurant, then be sure to check the menu ahead of time. Don’t forget to order the cake.Indian-Food buffet
  • Entertainment – a sweet sixteen party is not complete without a program that honors the birthday girl. Plan out a few games to entertain all the guests. Hire a DJ to play some of the most favorite music of the birthday girl. This will give everyone a chance to dance and have a good time.DJ
  • Party favors – a good hostess will never let the guests go home without a sweet 16 party favor. It can be something edible like  sweet 16 candy jar or chic like mini favor purposes. Options are endless so be sure to match the favors to the style and personality of the birthday girl.candy jar

Fleet Week 2014 Makes a Return To Staten Island

Fleet Week 2014 Makes a Return To Staten Island . Staten Island Fleet Week was established in 1990 while the Stapleton Homeport was an active U.S. Naval Base. The organization was incorporated as a 501(c)(3) organization in 1999.  At it’s inception we started as a  community based “Adopt-A-Sailor” program, which enabled local families to adopt crew-members for the day and treat them to either a home cooked meal, or visit the sites of New York City.

An all volunteer board and staff enable the group to fulfill their mission to provide recreation, morale and support the welfare of the visiting crew-members to the New York City area.  To date, close to 250 military ships have visited the Homeport site since 2000.  Fleet Week continues to bring in excess of 30,000 visitors to the event, not including the the crew-members and their families.  Fleet Week is an annual event which takes place each year during the Memorial Day holiday.

As a joint effort with the North Shore Business Association, to show our appreciation we provided complementary lunch to the men and women sailors of the  U.S Navy.  It was our pleasure giving back to the men and women who serve us.
