For young women around the country, Sweet 16 and Quinceañera parties are cherished rites of passage. They’re major milestones that mark the transition to adulthood, so it merits no small amount of to-do.
With the right planning, though, you can throw a great party for the special little lady in your life. And when you do, Quail Hollow is the perfect place to hold it. Below are a few tips for planning a Sweet 16 or Quinceañera party at Quail Hollow that your girl will remember forever.
Narrow Down Your Guest List
How many people attend is another major factor in how much it will cost. Will it be just close friends? The whole neighborhood? Will there be a section for adults, too? Determine whom you would like to attend and send out invitations with RSVP instructions attached so you can get an idea of how many will be there and plan accordingly.
Set the Date
If the birthday falls in the middle of the week, you’ll probably want to hold the party on the nearest weekend. Whatever day you choose, lock it in place well in advance and get the word out so that the guests can clear their schedules.
Decide on a Budget
It’s easy to go overboard with this type of party, so figure out how much you’re willing to spend and exactly what you can get with that money. Our director of events and marketing, Carly Kennedy, specializes in creating custom party plans for Quail Hollow clients, so she can walk you through this process if you need help.
Figure Out the Food and Entertainment

When it comes to entertainment, there are a few more things to decide. Will you hire a band, a DJ or go another route entirely? Kennedy and Quail Hollow’s expert event planners can help you make decisions like this and book who you need hassle-free.
