Sweet 16 is such a special birthday for kids … it’s often thought of as a grand time for a celebration. Has anyone seen MTV’s show My Super Sweet 16? Well, you probably don’t want to go that over the top, but a special sweet 16 masquerade ball with your teen kid’s friends would be a memorable way to celebrate. It’s just the nature of things that this is a perfect teen girl party!
Pick your colors: The best way to start is to pick your colors for the evening. Will it be black and silver, or purple and pearly white? Once you have chosen your colors, you can buy card stock in one of them and print the sweet 16 birthday masquerade ball details in the second color (for example, silver card stock with black print). Match the type of font you use to the tone you want to set for the evening. A ball is usually very elegant.
Choose your venue: If this is going a very large party, renting out a community or church hall is strongly recommended. Blow up balloons in the colors of the evening and make a balloon arch over the entrance. As guests arrive, have the Sweet 16 birthday kid take a photo with each guest. Once inside the hall, fill it out with even more balloons.
