Sweet 16

       Daughter turning 16 in October. She wants a big party with friends. I'd rather just have closest family at the house and a couple of her closest friends. We have a small home and can't invite everyone. Nor do I want to. Just the few people that show they care.  Money is a big factor as well.  So, what did you do for your daughters sweet 16 ?

My dd is 6 LOL so I have no idea yet what we will do. When I turned sweet 16 my parents put Streamers up in my room while I was at school and gave me $20 to "play with" while I supervised my little sister who wanted to go to the mall. Needless to say anything would be better than that.

 That's funny. So I guess giving her $20 and drop her off at the mall would not be good then?..... ;-D

Not if she hates shopping, and is stuck supervising her sibling.

My dd didn't want a party either.  What if you give her a budget, and let her figure out what she could and would want to do within that budget, and presented it to you?
