Choosing Sweet Sixteen Themes

One of the first steps to putting together an unforgettable party is choosing from some of the amazing sweet 16 themes. One option is to theme the party around a favorite color. You can also create a theme featuring the birthday girl herself and include her hobbies and interests. Other fun themes are:

  • Paris
  • Glow in the dark
  • Beach
  • Hollywood
  • Halloween
  • Chocolate
  • Candy
  • Masquerade
  • Fairytale

Selecting a Sweet Sixteen Venue

Choosing the right venue depends entirely on how many people are coming to the sweet sixteen party. If it's a small party with a few close friends and family, you might feel more comfortable having the celebration at your house. On the other hand, if you're inviting many people and need all the space you can get, a party hall might work better. Other venue options in Mesa to consider are:

  • Ballroom
  • Community center
  • Park
  • Hotel
  • Restaurant
  • Sports facility
  • Barn
  • Banquet hall

Picking Out Sweet Sixteen Dresses

Your birthday girl is likely very excited to start shopping for sweet sixteen dresses. There are countless styles, colors, and designs available. When shopping for the perfect dress, she can consider a:

  • Ball gown
  • Cocktail dress
  • Prom dress
  • Formal gown

Planning the Sweet Sixteen Party Menu

There are plenty of options when putting together the food choices for your sweet sixteen party. If the event is at a restaurant, you can simply order from the menu. You can also use the party's theme to guide your food selections. Depending on the size of the party, you can also consider:

  • Catering
  • Potluck
  • Backyard cookout
  • Buffet
  • Finger foods

Foods that are easy to eat while standing up are more appropriate if you know your guests will be milling around. Finally, don't forget about sweet sixteen cakes. For many parties, the cake is the centerpiece of the serving table and everyone looks forward to getting a slice.

Entertainment and Sweet Sixteen Party Games

When choosing entertainment options, decide what you would like vendors to do and what you would like to do yourself. Some of the vendors you might consider working with include:

  • Band or disc jockey
  • Photo booth
  • Photographer
  • Videographer
  • Caricature artist
  • Magician
  • Karaoke

You can also create your own sweet sixteen party games for your guests to enjoy. Some fun options are:

  • Scavenger hunts
  • Pass the parcel
  • Minute to win it games
  • Doughnuts on a string
  • Backyard games
  • Board games
