Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party Ideas
Planning a Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party:
- Don’t forget to involve your daughter in the planning process. She might have a different idea of what she’d like than you may think
- What are your daughter’s interests or hobbies? What would make her feel especially grown up? Try to plan your party based on these considerations.
- Make it clear that you or a chaperone will be there as well. Remember, this age group thinks they are all grown up, and that could lead to problems.
- What kind of food would she like? Does she want a sophisticated dinner? Or is she still into teen food such as pizzas, hamburgers, salads, etc.
- Don’t forget to have a camera handy for pictures of this milestone event.
Tasks to complete beforehand: It is important to set your budget first. The expense of this type of celebration can vary widely. You can keep things under control by limiting the guest list to just a one or two close friends. You can also limit the time at the spa or pick a more modest, yet better than fast food joint, restaurant to keep the budget reasonable.
- Make a reservation at spa
- Order theater or movie tickets
- Make restaurant reservations
- Take your daughter shopping for an appropriate outfit
- Make chauffeuring arrangements. If your budget allows, you could hire a limousine to take the girls around. Remember, however, that this does not replace a chaperone for the day.
Invitations for the Sweet Sixteen, birthday, party: Almost all girls like to be pampered, and your daughters friends will love an invitation to come to a spa party that will coddle them for a few hours!
Sending out spa invitations is a great way to set the tone of the party. You can ask your daughter to select an invite template and customize it with some spa pictures, cosmetics pictures, face masks etc. The caption of the invite could be “Welcome to the Spa Party, come prepared to be a princess”. Don’t forget to mention in the invitation that it is going to be a whole day affair and the time you intend to start the celebration. Ask invited guests to provide confirmation that they will be attending so you can plan accordingly.
Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party Activities: Once all the guests have arrived, you can take them to the spa where they will begin the day. You can arrange for any treatment that fits your budget, from facials, manicures, or pedicures to massages. After the spa visit, you can stop for a special lunch. After a trip to the theater or a to a movie, your daughter and her friends will be ready for a nice dinner at one of your daughter’s favorite restaurants, where the girls will be treated as princesses. Make sure you ask them to serve plenty of soft drinks and appetizers. Then arrange for a table to hold 16 gifts boxes (15 empty and 1 with the gift) on it. Ask the birthday girl to open all the gifts one by one, until she finds the actual gift box. See your daughter’s eyes light up with the whole concept.
Sweet Sixteen Birthday Party Favors: For the luxurious birthday party centered on a visit to the spa, a theater and dinner, how about giving the guests something to remember the day. You can give them a music CD from the show they watched at the theater. You could also give them a small box of after dinner mints tied with a special ribbon. Another option is to send the girls home with a gift bag full of mini spa products. This will help them continue their spa day once they get home.
I am sure this luxurious birthday party theme will make your daughter’s eyes light up.
