MO teen party location guideIn every teenager's life there's reason to party! For special occasions - whether it's a graduation, Sweet 16 party, bar mitzvah - special planning is called for to mark the day as an important milestone.

Experts suggest starting at least a few months in advance to discuss with your teen all aspects of party planning. Gone are the days when McDonald's or bouncy houses would entertain the kids. Even though you might still consider them your 'baby' they definitely have other ideas!

Get them involved from the start, and make it party planning a teachable moment for teens by letting them shoulder some of the responsibility. That means sticking to a budget, finding the venue and arranging the guest list..

Along with local restaurants that offer party rooms and birthday packages, also consider unique venues that may be appropriate for a fun teen party such as country clubs or manors, resorts, museums or galleries that increasingly offer party space for special occasions. Most will even offer the services of a professional party planner who can arrange for a caterer, live band or DJ to entertain on party day.

Depending on your budget, a big Sweet 16 bash might also include a limo service to deliver your princess to her birthday gala, or hiring out other entertainment or party rentals such as a tarot reader or photo booth so popular at teen birthday parties today.

Whatever your budget, be sure to leave yourself enough time to work closely with your teen to shop around for the perfect package at the best price. Are flowers and decorations included? Can you opt for a buffet over a more pricey sit-down dinner? Once you have the location set, and the guest list down to your teen's 'BFFs", you can further cut costs by having your teen send out invitations using a cool and popular e-invite website - for free.

Whatever you decide, know that on party day all mom and dad have to do is show up, with no set-up ...or cleanup! And what's that worth?

Have fun!
