hello there,
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

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: ..... :tick:
