Planning tips for a smashing Sweet Sixteen Party
This is one milestone that you want to make extraordinary! Since this marks turning from a child into young adult, you want to make this customized and extra special. Be sure that you set the right tone from the most beautiful and decorative sweet sixteen invitations to set the tone for this event.
You can feature pictures of the guest of honor through the years as a nice way to show the beautiful young woman she has turned into. Make this all about her and if her favorite pattern is leopard print, then use this to dictate the decorations throughout the venue.
Invite all of her close friends and family alike to what is sure to be the best part of her life. A sweet 16 party is all about crossing the threshold into the young adult years and so you want to make her feel like a princess in a very mature way. Center the menu around her favorite meal or special dishes that she likes, but keep it simple so as to avoid too much work or spending in the end.
You don’t need a lot of activities at a party like this as the guests are likely too old and perhaps “too cool” for games. Do be sure to focus on some great music, particularly the type that she likes. You can hire a DJ or just ask a musically talented friend to make up a great dance mix.
A sweet 16 party is one of the last birthdays of the adolescent years, and so it should be above and beyond what you may have done in the past. From beautiful invitations to decorations fit to her style, this is a party that she and her guests will remember for years from now.
