When Devvan Dowdy wanted to throw her daughter D’Avion a memorable sweet 16, she pulled out all the stops. Not only did she require that guests above the age of 21 wear black, and below that age wear white, but the party was perfectly planned down to the very last detail, with a candy buffet, ice sculpture, entertainment, and a crane game, where guests could win fun prizes like custom t-shirts,  stuffed animals, and miniature pillows.  Then there was the dessert room, complete with a chocolate fountain, ice cream bar, waffle station, and cotton candy station. Devvan hired Magic Moments to help transform The Royal Manor in Garfield, and using special effects and lighting, they had D’Avion and the whole party “dancing on clouds.”
