It is fun to celebrate becoming a teenager, but parents are often unsure how to bridge the gap between cute and cool when it comes to their teens’ parties. Clair, of Calamity Cakes in Australia, shares her son’s 13th birthday party and says that she let her son and his friends be her guide! Clair says, “the brief from the boys was: must be fun, funky and have cool music and a cool venue”. Clair hired a groovy local cafe and three 15-year-old dj’s to get the party started. Clair added a small dessert table for the 60 guests to get their “sweet fix”- and she used themes her son and his friends liked…music, graffiti walls, and longboarding.
