Throwing that Sweet 16 Party for Your Princess
March 29, 2012
It’s finally here! The event your daughter has been dreaming of for years. No, it’s not her wedding, it’s her Sweet 16 birthday party! Let’s face it, this is probably the biggest event of a teenage girl’s life. After all, it’s the only day that all the focus is on her. It’s the day that all her friends and family will gather to shower her with love and gifts and make her feel special. So it’s up to you to make her Sweet 16 birthday party a magical event that she’ll remember forever. And yes, it is possible to do that without taking on a second mortgage!
Start out with personalized Sweet 16 party invitations. With more than fifty designs to choose from, your daughter is sure to find one that fits whatever theme she decides on. And since our personalized Sweet 16 party invitations are fully customizable, let Windy City Novelties fill out all the details, saving you a little time and a lot of stress.
Your darling teen is sure to have lots of ideas on the theme of her Sweet 16 party, so let her browse through our selection of Sweet 16 decorations to get an idea of the kind of party she wants to have. Is she looking for a fun, casual get together with her closest friends? Then our ice cream centerpieces will help set the mood for a sleepover or be a perfect accent for a sundae bar where they can satisfy their sweet tooth. Or does she want to have an elegant party where the guests dress up in their finest suits and dresses? In which case, our white chair covers and silver metallic decorating kit will add an elegant touch to any room.
We also have plenty of decorating supplies if your soon-to-be sixteen-year-old wants to have a Sweet 16 luau party! The guest of honor can greet each of her guests with their own floral lei and show them the way to the tiki bar. In keeping with the luau theme, you could serve spare ribs, or even go all out with a full pig roast! Server non-alcoholic pina coladas in coconut shaped glasses and encourage the girls to wear their favorite grass skirts!
If the luau theme isn’t quite what your daughter is looking for, there are plenty of other ideas to check out. What girl wouldn’t want a Hollywood themed 16th birthday party? Have all the guests dress up in their red carpet finery and treat them like A-list celebrities as they arrive, snapping photos like the paparazzi. Every girl wants to feel like a supermodel and rolling out a red carpet floor runner will get any girl in the mood for an evening of star-like finery!
Another fun option for your daughter’s sweet 16 birthday party is to throw her one last slumber party with her friends. Your daughter will love having one more chance to act like a kid and giggle the night away! Send out the sweet 16 invitations letting everyone know to come in their favorite pajamas and bring their sleeping bags, pillows, and teddy bears!
Plan some special spa treatments for the girls to give one another, such as facial treatments, manicures and pedicures with fun nail polishes, and let everyone settle in for a night of pampering fun. Or, rent some scary movies, turn down the lights, and let the girls scare themselves silly! Just be prepared for lots of screams and the lights to be on for the rest of the night.
And don’t forget all the traditional sleepover foods. You’ll need lots of popcorn and chocolate, some greasy pizza, your daughter’s favorite chips and dip, plenty of soda, and lots and lots of ice cream with all the toppings! And of course, they’ll need candy to get them through the night. After all, it takes a lot of sugar to keep them hyper and giggling until the wee hours of the morning! When they finally do roll out of the sleeping bags the next morning, all rumpled and looking just like they did when they were ten years old, before they spend hours in front of the mirror slathering on the makeup and fixing their hair, transforming into the more mature teens your used to, treat them to a hearty breakfast. Pancakes, bacon, eggs, and orange juice are a perfect way to start the morning. Or just set out some donuts for them to snack on whenever they decide to wake up so that you can sleep in a little later as well!
No matter what theme your daughter decides on for her sweet 16 birthday party, just remember, it is possible to throw a party without breaking the bank. With a little imagination, a lot of input from the guest of honor, and the help of Windy City Novelties, you’ll be able to throw your daughter a sweet 16 party she’ll never forget! And once that party’s done, she can move on to planning the next big event, her wedding!
