Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this series about a party-planner contains some positive messages about family, mentorship, and the importance of discipline and professionalism. There is some petty arguing between the characters and some sassy behavior from some of the more immature teens, but overall the content is mild. Though the parties featured on the show are for tweens and teens, this age group might not be interested in a show that's more about overcoming professional challenges.

What's the story?

PARTY AT TIFFANY'S is a reality show about parties, professionalism, and starting over. After being laid off from her corporate job and losing everything she owned five years ago, 30-year-old Tiffany Young has opened the Pink Pastry Parlor, a one-stop cupcake shop and tween-oriented party planning business in Alpharetta, Georgia. With the help of her mom Corcetter, her overworked sister Terra, and her teen staff known as the Parlettes, Tiffany is committed to giving every young client the upscale diva party of their dreams. Pulling together unique, over-the-top celebrations, especially when some of the Parlettes' undeveloped work ethic threaten the success of the event. But Tiffany is committed to continue making her business an empowering pink success, one party cupcake at a time.

Is it any good?

QUALITY
 

The series offers a lighthearted but honest look at how someone can successfully rebuild their careers (and their lives) with hard work and the help of a supportive family. It also shows how someone can also use that opportunity to serve as a mentor to young women, teaching them important lessons about responsibility and professionalism.

Occasionally young clients (and their parents) are uncomfortably demanding. Some of the scenes, especially those with the Parlettes, seem a little rehearsed, too. But the overall show is a positive one, and those who tune in will find a good role model here.

Families can talk about...

  • Families can talk about things that can happen during difficult economic times. How does the media address issues like unemployment and starting over? Walt Disney, Oprah Winfrey, and J.K. Rowling are examples of people who turned to occupations that made them famous after they were laid off from their jobs. What do you think helped them become successful in their endeavors?

  • What does Tiffany stand to gain or lose form being featured on this show? Do you think her company is benefiting from this show?
