The first step in planning a sweet sixteen party is to find a venue that is available for your chosen date. Because it's a birthday party, you will want to choose a date close to the girl's actual birthday. Setting a budget is also important. A sweet sixteen party can be an elaborate affair or an informal gathering of friends, and that decision depends on how much you want to spend and what the birthday girl prefers. Once you've chosen a date, time and place, you can order and send the sweet sixteen invitations.
Pick a Theme
A sweet sixteen party is all about the theme. This gathering focuses on the birthday girl, so the theme should reflect her interests. The sky's the limit as far as themes go. Maybe it's a school activity, such as music, sports or cheerleading. Another choice might be a place she wants to go, like New York, Paris or Los Angeles. The season could be another factor in the choice. Winter Wonderland is a great theme for a winter party, while a beach party is perfect for summer. Whatever theme you choose, it's a good idea to note it on your sweet 16 birthday party invitations.
Coming of age is an important aspect of sweet 16 birthday parties, and there are many ceremonies that have developed to mark this special occasion. Some cultures mark a girl's coming of age with a tiara or a pair of high heeled shoes. Another special way to do it is with a candle lighting ceremony. Gather together sixteen people who have been important in the birthday girl's life, and have each one light a candle for her while saying something about her importance in his or her life.
