Teenage girls and their mothers will no longer have to look at wedding books or types of party books and adjust what they read for the Sweet 16 party.
Brooklyn, NY (PRWEB) January 10, 2013
Party planning can be quite overwhelming, especially when it’s in preparation for something as important as a Sweet 16 birthday party. The popularity of MTV’s “My Super Sweet 16” has raised not only the excitement for the celebration, but also expectations. To help plan for one’s Sweet 16, Rosa Rodriguez has penned the new book, “Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen: A practical guide for planning and celebrating a Sweet Sixteen” (published by AuthorHouse).
“Teenage girls and their mothers will no longer have to look at wedding books or types of party books and adjust what they read for the Sweet 16 party,” Rodriguez explains. “This book is practical, with short to the point chapters, and doesn’t assume the parents can afford to spend $20,000 or more on a Sweet 16 party. In fact, it actually discourages parents from over spending.”
Rodriguez has practical experience planning and celebrating Sweet 16s and Quinceañeras, having planned several herself. Now she takes her wealth of knowledge and helps other parents and their daughters plan for their own celebrations.
“Happy Birthday Sweet Sixteen” shows the benefits of planning with attention to detail through to the party itself, showcasing how proper planning can lead to a successful and stress-free party for both parents and children. In addition, it is colorfully illustrated by artist Alana Lively, whimsically leading readers through the book.
