1. Finalize the Details
First, before anything else, you must come up with a date, time and location for your daughter’s Sweet 16 party. After all, you won’t be able to send any actual invitations if the details aren’t set in stone.
Try to choose a date, time and venue that works for your guests to ensure the highest possible turnout. And don’t forget, most people don’t have Sweet 16s on their actual birthday, so there is a lot of flexibility available when choosing a date.
2. Compose a Guest List
Whether you’re inviting just family, friends or everyone in between, a guest list is a Sweet 16 planning essential. No matter who you decide to invite, it’s important to get an early estimate on headcount to determine if the party venue can accommodate everyone.
3. Send Out Invitations
Once you’re gotten the party details and guest list figured out, you can officially move on to invitations. If you have a theme in mind, it doesn’t hurt to incorporate it into the invitations to get all potential guests in the party mood. Just make sure you go with whatever option best represents the birthday girl!
4. Choose a Theme
No good Sweet 16 is complete without the addition of an awesome theme. Therefore, ask the guest of honor what she has in mind and go with whatever works best with her. Having a specific theme in mind will also make the rest of your Sweet 16 planning that much easier!
5. Planning it All Out
After the theme has been finalized, you can focus your Sweet 16 planning on finding the right décor, furnishings and activities for the party. Ideally, they should all relate to, or at least complement, the party theme or else it can get confusing. Just go with anything the birthday girl would enjoy, and you should be good from there!
6. Acquiring Party Favors
It’s not uncommon for Sweet 16 guests to leave a celebration with party favors. Whether they’re simply goody bags, sweets or just something related to the theme, you really can’t go wrong with any type of parting gift. Whatever you choose will be the cherry on top of an out-of-this-world party!
