  • Hollywood Party: Roll out the red carpet for this sweet sixteen party theme! Send out invitations to your guests to let them know about the big event. Hang up old Hollywood posters around the room. You could even make a Hollywood Walk of Fame star for each of the guests attending the party. Give out miniature Oscar statues as awards for best dressed, best dancer, etc.
  • Sports-Theme Party: This is a fun sweet 16 theme for either a boy or girl birthday party. Send invitations to your biggest fans that look like tickets to a sporting event. Decorate the room to look like a stadium using your favorite sports gear and other party supplies. Some fun activities to play at the party are sports trivia, flag football, and set up an obstacle course.
  • Fortune Teller Party: For this sweet 16 theme party, you could either hire a palm reader or have an adult dress like a gypsy to read your guest’s fortunes. Serve fortune cookies and star shaped cookies. For activities at this party, you can do tarot card readings, palmistry, or have your guests write horoscopes for each other!
  • Backyard Bash: A great sweet 16 party theme idea is to host the party in your backyard for an all out dance party. Hang up twinkle lights and lanterns to illuminate your yard. Invite guests to kick off their shoes and start a dance party on the lawn set to a great playlist of all your teen's favorite songs.
