Sweet 16 Masquerade Party

I'm planning a masquerade party for a sweet sixteen with a low budget. I need some ideas; the colors are pink and silver. I found the cake and mask she wants for herself and the girls, but don't know what the boy's mask should be or what color. Any ideas?

Girls masks could be the pink, boys the silver. If you can't find them that color, get any and lay them on paper in the garage and spray paint them several days in advance so they dry really well. Or the boys could be black and silver. Both could have glued on glitter sprinkles.

Then on maybe poster board, draw the mask faces one sees symbolizing a masquerade and paint one pink and one silver, you'd only need silver paint and pink. Perhaps you could get a cluster of appropriate curled ribbon at the dollar store to afix to the poster. You could cut the masks out and put them on the wall, in pairs or multiple pairs. Walgreens, Walmart, and dollar stores all have cheap posterboard.

You could get a copy of Marie Antoinette, the new version with Kirsten Dunst and have it playing in the background. It has a great masquerade ball scene. And the costumes are fabulous in that movie. Your library might have copy. Also the music in the movie is modern pop songs.

Serve pink lemonade and ginger ale for punch or something like that. Pink Kool-aid and soda would work, too. You could make candied popcorn, like popcorn balls, but not formed into balls ahead of time. You could color the candy part with food coloring to a light pink. There must be directions somewhere. Don't use microwave popcorn though. (10/09/2009)

For types of masks the guys might not feel dorky wearing, perhaps Phantom of the Opera? That was one cool mask. Zorro and Lone Ranger style masks might work, too, as well as Batman style. I'm trying not to suggest the obvious Jason or Michael Myer masks, those are pretty creepy. (10/14/2009)
