"Planning a birthday for a 13 year old boy is not easy!! They are too old for THEME parties and there is so much that is NOT cool. I asked for help with not only an invitation but the party theme. I had a Murder Mystery Party for eleven 13-year-olds (boys and girls) and Had To Be There provided me with an awesome invite as well as a story plot for the kids to follow. THANK YOU!!! The party was a HUGE hit."

"We had such a great time being transformed back to the 1950s. The music was perfect and the menu was obviously well-planned. Everything was great and we had a blast (in the past)!"
