Sweet 16 Party Ideas

Sweet 16 birthday parties are a special time in every child’s life. Turning 16 is a stepping-stone towards adulthood, and many teenagers anticipate getting their license and their first car when they make this turning point. Help your teenager celebrate their Sweet 16 party with a few simple tips and ideas from Pink Frosting.

Themed Sweet 16 Parties

Many Sweet 16 parties incorporate a treasured theme the teenager chooses. This can be anything from a favourite sports team and outing to a national party to a tea party or Hollywood themed sleepover party.

Surprise parties are a great way to make your teenager feel special during their birthday. If you plan a surprise party, make sure you find out what the honoured guest likes ahead of time and coordinate with his or her friends to make the party go off without a hitch. This may be difficult if you have trouble keeping a secret, but it will all be worth it to see the look on their face when they arrive at the party!

Every party needs decorations and supplies, so if you are looking online for these, look no further than Pink Frosting's Sweet 16 party supplies department.  They can help you find just what you are looking for to throw a fantastic Sweet 16 party.

If your honoured guest is a girl, you may choose more feminine colours for party decorations like pinks or purples. If you know one of her presents is a car, have your baker make a cake in the shape of the car not only to honour this special age, but also to give a hint as to what she can expect when she receives gifts. Teenage boys may not want a big flashy party, so stick with deeper hues when you choose how to decorate their party for a simple design that is just as special as a more complex one. It is likely the teenage boys at the party will be more interested in socializing and any activities you might have available rather than the look of the party.

You may choose to show pictures and videos at your party showcasing special moments in your teenager’s life. To do this in a simple but effective manner, make a brief slideshow ahead of time set to music with movie-making software or ask a tech-savvy friend to do it for you.

If you are hosting a slumber party, showing a movie about a 16th birthday may be a fun activity as the evening draws to a close. Rent a class movie like Sixteen Candles and let guests watch as you pop popcorn or make snacks. This is a good activity if you want your guests to settle in for the evening and get comfortable enough to sleep. You might want to go the modern route with your rental selection and instead show episodes of the MTV show My Super Sweet 16.  The over-the-top Sweet 16 parties featured in the show might help guests appreciate the low-key party a little more or plan a wild party for their own Sweet 16 party.

Australia’s #1 party shop, Pink Frosting, will be there with you from the beginning of planning your Sweet 16 party until the last guest goes home.
