Glamour Shots
Make the Sweet sixteen party one to remember by taking glamour photos of all the party guests.  Set up an inhouse (or travel to a studio)  photo shoot with a photographer.  Bring in professionals to do hair and makeup and ask guests to bring a few changes of clothes for their photos. 


Glow in the Dark / Neon Glow
Glow in the Dark or Neon Glow parties are fun by on their own or pair them with a dance party.   White shirts and colored highlighters are a great party favor and show up great under black lights.   See the Glow in the Dark party theme page for fun ideas on party food, decorations, games, activities and more.   





Make Hollywood the sweet sixteen theme - stars walk of fame, the large Hollywood sign, dark sunglasses for all guests ... perfect for sixteen year olds who love the lights and fame of Hollywood.  


Luau or Hawaiian theme
Decorate with a Hawaiian theme and give guests grass skirts to wear for the party.   Lots of fun no matter what season the sixteenth birthday is in!   See our Luau party theme page for fun ideas, games, activities, decorations and invitations and party food.


Mardi Gras
Make the Sweet 16 a real party with a Mardi Gras theme!   Masks, beads and lots of fun music!   Our Mardi Gras party ideas will help you create your own perfect party. 


New York
New York, New York!   The big apple is a great party theme for a sweet sixteen party!  We've combined our favorite New York party ideas on one page - decorations, invitations, party food, games, activities and more fun party ideas.


Outdoor Movie
An Outdoor Movie party theme is really fun and a great way to hang out with friends and enjoy a great movie!   Set up a large screen outside (you can hang a white sheet) and project a current movie or an old favorite like Sixteen Candles onto the big screen.   Have guests gather around with sleeping bags, beach towels, lawn chairs or beanbags and have fun under the stars.    String white lights in trees and around the party area to look like stars.   Pop popcorn and serve in small tubs or brown bags, serve movie sized boxed candies, hotdogs, nachos and sodas.   



Create a beautiful party theme filled with Parisian influences.   Eiffel towers, flowers and funny mimes all add to the Paris party theme - see our Paris page filled with ideas for games, activities, party food and more.
