Sweet 16 Party Themes

By: Denise Sanger

Planning a Sweet 16 Party and trying to decide on a party theme? There are so many wonderful party themes to choose from. Let's take a look at some of the more common themes. These themes will work fantastic if you have a time crunch and need to get the party planning done quickly.

1. Fairytale Party Theme. Every little girls dream is to be a princess. A fairytale themed Sweet 16 party is a fantastic way to make that dream realty ' at least for one day.

2. Favorite Color Party Theme. Using the Sweet 16's favorite color, design a celebration using that color in the favors, decorations, party dress, cake and more.

3. Beach Party Theme. Always a favorite, the beach party theme is actually easy to recreate at a backyard pool, picnic area, and community recreation center and at the lake or ocean.

4. Hollywood Glamour Party. Think of Hollywood in the good old days. Women dressed to impress and dapper men. Have your guests dress in the style of their favorite glamorous movie star.

5. Surprise Sweet 16 Party. May not be easy to keep the party of secret from your Sweet 16, but if you can do it ' it will be all worth it. Select a secluded location and swear all the guests to secrecy.

6. Musical Sweet 16. Choosing music from any favorite decade, plan the Sweet 16 party around the music. 50's music can be a sock hop. 70's music is disco inspired.

If you have more time, the following Sweet 16 party themes will be well worth the planning and effort you put into them:

1. Las Vegas Casino Night. What could be more fun that a party with a Las Vegas Theme. Decorate the location casino style with card tables, dice games, and playing card party favors that can be used during the party then taken home by your guests. Use a large marquee in front of the hall that announces the event for the day. Remember, what happens in Vegas Baby....

2. Masquerade Sweet 16 Party. I don't think I know any teenager that wouldn't love to wear a mask to a party. Decorate this themed party in silver and gold sprinkled with other dramatic colors like burgundy or sapphire blue for effect. Have your guests dress up and provide them with a mask when they enter the hall or room. Choose matching favor boxes filled with trinkets to give your guests on the way out the door.

3. Willy Wonka Candy Themed Party. An all time favorite movie becomes a fantastic party theme. After you have selected the location for the party, it's time to really get creative. Choose a chocolate fountain with plenty of dipping items like marshmallows, bananas, and strawberries. Place large bowls throughout the room filled to the brim with M&M's, Sweet Tarts, Jolly Ranchers and any other favorite candy. The cake should be decorated all around with candy with Jessica's 'SWEET' 16 in the center. Fill party favor boxes or bags with sweet treats for your guests to take home.

We hope the few ideas above helps you get started to create the Sweet 16 party that dreams are made of. Most importantly, have fun.
