Consider having a grand entrance to make the party more personal and special for the birthday girl.  Mom or dad should consider giving a toast after the father and daughter dance or after dinner.  A seventeenth candle also known as the ‘good luck candle’ is always a great idea to have in addition to the sixteen candles.  The birthday girl and all of her friends should line up around the cake for a group picture after the candle lighting ceremony. It’s great to have for memories.  Decide on one or two games to play in between meals. The game’s should last only 5-10 minutes each. This will help prevent the party from dragging.
