Sweet 16 party ideas

shaknzmomJuly 22, 2006

My oldest turns 16 in a few months....and I need some ideas.

We ARE on a budget so there won't be any limos or other such extravagances. I was thinking about a hotel room for a night with a few friends....can't get beyond that.

Would appreciate any ideas you can send!

Hang 16 sugar cubes wrapped with pink satin ribbon from ceiling in your house...lovely for the girl and she will never forget it.
Forget hotel room-limo---why does she need this?

Tell her to invite her closest girlfriends for a sleepover. Provide good teen food/drinks and leave them alone. Buy her a special piece of jewelry and tell her you would rather her have that to remember than a hotel room night.

What do they spend their time talking about? If it is Make-up, see if you can find an Avon rep or the like to do a party for several girls. If it is clothing, organize a trip downtown to stores they do not usually shop at, throw in lunch or a play.

A hoel room without activities, does not seem like as much fun as doing something they don't get to do usualy.
