I'm panicking. I have rented a ballroom and I have a possible lead on a DJ. I have to get the food catered in (not my favorite part because it is expensive and I'm trying to figure out how to narrow that down). Now that the basics are thought of, what other things do I need to know about planning my soon to be 16 year old son's formal dance birthday party? What about the scheduling/timing? Decorations? (May have to order these online so I need immediate help). Creative ideas? At the moment it feels very boring. I don't have experience with high school dances so I'm hoping some of you have seen enough and have some creative ideas to share!
