Got an Answer?
At my 16th birthday there was a lot of pressure to have alcohol, from my friends at the time. I wasn't very big on drinking though but didn't want to get paid out on. So my mum (the brilliant genius she is) got in contact with every invitees parents and told them all that the alcohol being served was actually just lemonade with some different cordials mixed in. Then she made up a big punch bowl full of punch and actually did put a teeeny tiny bit of alcohol in it (like a quarter of a can of west coast cooler in a MASSIVE punch bowl of fruit juice) and "accidentally" let slip that someone had spiked the punch. All my guests thought they were getting wasted (and acted like dicks), and their parents were fine with it. We had those big drink dispensers with the taps on them pre loaded with the "booze" in a variety of flavours and guests were told strictly no outside drinks would be allowed in. She made up some little jelly "shots" as well. Ah my mum was so cool back then.
It worked for my party with only a few guests (16 guests for a sweet 16th). We had a theme and all, everyone came as "alternative barbie or ken". We had 3 or 4 hooker barbies, 5 pimp kens, 2 zombie barbies, and a few other bits and bobs.
Maybe that's something you could think about doing?
Definitely consider something like that , as I said her idea! Not her fathers or mine...
Don't supply alcohol to minors what sort of example are you showing teenagers no alcohol or no party simple parent responsible .
Yeah, she is 16 she shouldn't be drinking alcohol. Who's the adult here?
Teenagers and the pressures they face
And what other parents are allowing blurs the lines of responsible parenting. I’m old school trust me .
My friend hired a stretch hummer for her daughter's 16th birthday. It drove them to dinner and then a dessert place. They all got dressed up and had professional photos taken with the car and each other. I think there were about 8 kids invited.
I wouldn't be allowing any alcohol.
I hope you are cashed up. The fines for supplying achcol underage are ridiculous. Police can breathalyse the teens and charge you if they are on your property.
Even a west coast cooler in a pinch is supplying an underage.
They will sneak shit in.
It is so sad that kids that young think they need alcohol to have a good time. When my daughter tuned 16 , she and her friends went to the city for dinner at a nice restaurant and then headed to the foreshore for some photos. They had a great time eating, talking and laughing and spending a fun night out together.
Get her drunk and take video of her and put on you tube and put Loud music on when she wakes up
My friend had a 16 year old girl die from alcohol poisoning at her house when her daughter turned 16. Not worth the risk
