Tips for Planning the BEST Sweet 16!

Turns out time doesn’t only fly when you’re having fun. While it might seem like yesterday, it’s been 16 years since your child was born. With only a few more short years before they’re out of the house forever, you’ve decided to throw a sweet 16 party. The problem is, you’ve never thrown a sweet 16 party. In fact, you’ve never even been to a sweet 16 party. You could hire a professional to do all the work for you. Before you do, check out some of these tips below and maybe you’ll decide that you can throw a great sweet 16 party after all.

Include Your Guest of Honor in the Planning Process

The first thing to do when planning a sweet 16 party is to check with the guest of honor themselves. The party is supposed to be a celebration for them, so planning a huge bash when they just want a few friends over is a surefire path to disaster. Likewise, not planning something big when that’s all they really want is guaranteed to disappoint.

Discuss Venue

Once the size of a party is figured out, the next step is to figure out where it’s going to happen. This can range from the basement or backyard all the way up to a hotel conference room. You want to make sure the venue is large enough to accommodate all the guests will be invited to the party. Budget comes into play as well. Larger and fancier venues are going to cost more.

A Killer Theme is Crucial!

Almost as important as the venue is the theme. The theme is another place where you want to talk to the person turning 16, and not decide completely on your own. Work together to figure out what the best theme is, and how to implement it in the decorations and activities.

Little Logistics

Once these large pieces are figured out, it really becomes just like planning any other party. Make sure there will be enough food for the guests as well as enough for them to do. The overall size of the party will dictate how hard it is to put this all together. At the end of the day though, no matter what the size of the party most important part is for it to be fun and memorable.
