Sweet 16

Fun, unique, memorable …

In the American culture and many Western traditions, a young woman's 16th birthday is a recognized as a big milestone in her life. A Sweet 16 celebrates the coming of age and maturity into a young adult. Sweet 16 parties range in size and theme depending on the preferences of the birthday girl and her family.  

Regardless of whether the birthday girl wants a big Sweet 16 party or a more intimate gathering, she deserves to feel and look beautiful on her special day. There are so many possibilities to choose from when deciding what kind of Sweet 16 party to throw. Some popular Sweet 16 ideas are:

1. Color-themed parties

Color-themed parties are very common among Sweet 16s. The birthday girl chooses her favorite color(s) as the center of the party, from the decorations to her evening dress. Guests are also typically encouraged to incorporate the color into their attire. This is a fun and colorful idea that brings out a beautiful aesthetic in an elegant way. Some popular colors include pastels, purple, royal blue, baby pink, rose gold- the possibilities are endless! 

2. Masquerade Ball

Another fun theme is the Masquerade Ball! Wearing masks adds an element of mystery to the night with the birthday girl wearing the most extravagant mask of all. You can get super creative with decorations and party favors to make the theme pop. Oz Boutique makes custom hand made masks of all styles so you can stand out- even in a disguise! Click here for more information. 

3. Season-themed Parties

Use the time of year as inspiration for your party's theme. Is your Sweet 16 in the middle of the Winter? Throw a Winter Wonderland bash with a gorgeous ice princess dress, white and blue decorations, and of course a snow machine! For the birthday girls in the Springtime, try a Spring Fling Sweet 16. Find a dress with earthy colors or floral prints, make sure your cake has edible fondant flowers, and decorate the venue like a magic garden. For Sweet 16 parties in the fall, Halloween is a fun and one-of-a-kind theme for any party. Encourage your guests to dress up in costumes, hand out trick-or-treat goodie bags, and spook your friends with a haunted house (or hall in smaller venues.)
