Party Planning/Combined Parties


Hi. My Daughter is turning 14 and so is her really good friend. They both were born in the same month, and so we were thinking of a combined party. How do we address the gift situation? They pretty much have the same friends, so do we need to say anything on the invite?

Hi Skylar

I'm sorry but I don't understand the problem.

To my mind, an invitation is just tha and I wouldn't dream of requesting or even mentioning anything about a present on it. So, for me, it makes no difference that it may be a double party.

Stuck for ideas? I can help with ideas on theming, entertainment and anything creative. I specialise in the unusual and have created party experiences for small gatherings right up to large international corporations. I have a great original idea that is totally flexible and personalises the party in a way that touches people.


I have been involved with Corporate and Private Events for many years. I both organise and provide entertainment at a wide range from house parties, anniversaries, celebrations, fun days, conferences, seminars, workshops and street parties.

I gained a degree in Graphic Design and Communication and worked as a Creative Director and Design Consultant for over 20 years. My consultancy Gordon Ollis Design gained commissions from leading International Blue Chip companies and won awards for the work we produced. Since then I've worked in the event industry being involved with theming and entertainment at a wide variety of parties, events and celebrations
