Planning a Small Sweet 16 Birthday


I'm going to be turning 16 at the end of February and I have no idea what to do! I want it to be a sweet sixteen and I was thinking of maybe 2 of my closest friends & I could go for makeovers after school in a limo, then go pick the other 8 girls up and come back to my house. That's where I'm stuck.

I don't have a theme and I don't want it to be a big party. Just something sweet and memorable! I could really use some tips in the next week because I need to have it planned by the beginning week of February.

Congrats on your Sweet 16! When my daughter turned 16, she borrowed a karaoke machine and CDs, and everybody had a great time. Since you will be made up, you might want to set up a photo studio at your house, and take glamor shots of each girl. Have fun!

I would nix the limo idea...costs WAY too much and you can use the $$$ for a nice party! How about cashing in on the Valentine thing and have a few kids over for food, drinks (pop), and have the girls stay overnight. Parents will be on hand to keep things in control and just have lots of cool music, good food, and fun. Maybe make it semi-formal with dressy dresses and suits. (01/30/2008)

We did a dance theme. Bought some black lights and screwed them into regular lamps. Made posters with markers that really showed off the black light..disco ball.. music.. and 16 kinds of each food, 16 different drinks, 16 posters, with games based on 16. The dancing took up almost all the time, and really fun! (01/30/2008)

Hey. I understand your struggles. I'm having a sweet 16 in March and am wondering the same thing. I think that the limo idea is good and as for the theme...you should ask your friends what they like to do because along with having a memorable sweet 16 for you, you also want your friends to remember it too. If you all enjoy dancing, then have a dance theme. Keep your friends entertained as well as yourself because that's all that matters when it comes to your day. Have fun and happy birthday!

This may sound corny, but how about a "Grease" the movie theme. Have a sleepover and watch both Grease 1 and 2. Then write love letters to your favorite boys like they do in the first movie and sing the songs in karaoke...Maybe I'll do that for my 36th! LOL, Happy Birthday. (02/06/2008)

I'm having a sweet 16 in September and I think it would be great if I went and picked up my 10 closest friends and we went to a skating rink. Then after that, we would go out to eat and go shopping. I would finish the night off with a sleep over at my house or a hotel with a pool. (03/27/2008)

I'm having the exact same dilemma. I want to go to The Arboretum with my three-five closest friends but one of them nixed the idea before I even said that it was for my 16th. I wanted to do a fun and quirky photo shoot type of thing (some black and white photos too!). My grandma has a pool and I want my friends to stay over. I'm sure if you packed the day with makeovers, showing OFF your makeovers to the world at the mall or just taking a walk at a busy place, and then a sleepover (with specially made foods by you and your friends), everyone would be happy :)!

For my daughter we did a fairy tale theme, but not really like the kid (Disney) fairy tale. Little bit more elegant and with only a few of her good friends. We added some nice elegant touches. Here is where we got some favors from - http://www.favoraffair.com/sweet16-quinceanera.html - and then we ordered a castle cake from a local bakery. (03/05/2009)
