could anyone tell me if the following sentence is correct?
" three steps to having a marvellous birthday party:....."(followed by some advice. What I'm not sure about is the gerund "having". Would it be better to use the infinitive?
Thank you very much for your answer
Re: a party
Your sentence is perfectly ok. 'to' acts as a preposition in your sentence, and thus, takes a verbal noun (gerund).
Three steps to having a marvellous birthday party: .....
