Every girl looks forward to turning 16 because it often comes with a coming of age party, otherwise known as a “sweet sixteen.” It’s the chance for her and all of her friends to celebrate being a teenager. But it’s not your typical birthday. Here are a few must-haves for a fun, exciting and memorable bash:
The right invitations
Set the tone for the theme and style of your sweet sixteen party with the right invitations. For a glamorous, movie star-like affair, this Red Carpet Event Bright White Invitation is perfect. It has the feel of a Hollywood A-lister, resembling a hot ticket to the latest big party or event. For the 16-year-old princess, this Sweet 16 Crown Invitation is just regal enough to incite some royal admiration.
Just like any good bash, a sweet sixteen party should have a theme. This is where you can really get creative and inject some personality into the event. If you love celebrity gossip, how about rolling out the red carpet for a Hollywood party? Hang up old Hollywood posters around the room and even make a walk of fame for everyone attending the party. If you’re into sports, decorate the space to look like your favorite sports stadium and have fun sports trivia and games set up at the bash.
Hire someone to be in charge of the music at the event. The right music can set the tone for fun and upbeat festivities. Choose songs that go with the theme of your party, or go with some of the hottest songs of the year. Songs for a 2013 bash could include Icona Pop’s “I Love It,” “Wobble” by V.I.C., “I Knew You Were Trouble” by Taylor Swift or “Levels” by Avicii. Make a list of must-hear songs before the soiree, so you can be sure you’ll hear all of your favorites.
