What to do for a 15th birthday party(7 Posts)
DD's 15th is fast approaching (8th of December). She has assured me she wants a birthday party of some sorts she recommended a house party since it would be the easiest to set up but I've told her I don't think I'd be comfortable with this after reading all the MN articles on it. She was fine with this saying it was just the first option to came to head.
I was thinking a local restaraunt function room since the restaraunt would offer catering, its well shaped with a dance floor, dj booth and Tables as well as a buffet area, the price is reasonable and it's a great size. Also I should add due to it running club nights on certain nights it also has a very good PA system and also lights and lasers which would be great for my DDs party since she does want a dance floor. By the way my DD is contributing half towards this party (she has a part time job and is a saver).
So what do you think. Is the function room a good idea. By the way I'm not listing the price but it works out cheaper than a hall since all I'd have to pay for is the dj outside that and the dj I'm getting my Brothers friend to do it and he's given me a discount. Where's with a hall even if I didn't have food if I was to rent a half decent PA system, get drinks and also maybe some lights since I know the dj I'm hiring doesn't have any of them it would work out as more for a worse result.
By the way one good thing about the restaraunt is also there's a wide range of drinks such as Mocktails for the younger ones and Wine for me
And just in case anyone Misreads it like I've done a billion times I said mocktails the ones that are basically fancy fruit drinks no alcohol
I think it sounds lovely, especially if you have a sensible DD with sensible friends. My only concern would be alcohol as a lot of teens that age want or expect it unfortunately
Sounds great, but I’d also hire a security guard who can watch the door and also look out for inappropriate behaviour/bringing in alcohol.
@raisinsraisins forgot to mention that in the original post the venue can provide door staff as well for a small extra free. It all seems to be coming together nicely
Sounds like you have it covered. Hope all goes well and don't forget to report back here!
