Sweet 16 Party How to Celebrate in Style


You only turn 16 once, and for your teenager, this is a huge deal. Your soon-to-be 16-year-old will probably want to go all out and celebrate this momentous occasion in style—and who could blame them? Here are a few ideas that will make their sweet 16 a night to remember.

Attraction Rides

If you want to make it an unforgettable event, then go one step further and offer your guests some old-school attractions. There is nothing more fun than racing around in a dodgem car with your family and friends. Fun Crew USA provides bumper car rental to large and small parties and can help take your bash to the next level. Their battery-operated bumper car rental includes an impressive inflatable arena and light-up bumper cars. Party guests don’t need a license to drive either; they can simply get behind the wheel and put their foot down.

Dance Like Nobody’s Watching

They may not be old enough to dance the night away in clubs yet, but you can create a fun atmosphere with ambient lighting, an area to dance, and a DJ. Hiring a professional will make their sweet 16 even more special. When sending out your invitations, you can ask guests to include a song request when they RSVP to make it a more personal experience. If your teen is up for it, your DJ can evoke some competitive spirit by challenging all partygoers to a dance-off. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but a dance-off can help create unique memories of the night. Rather than putting the spotlight on one individual, have the DJ group people together in teams for some friendly competition.

Sing Your Heart Out to Karaoke

Everyone loves a good sing-along, so give party guests that feel-good feeling with a karaoke machine and a platform to sing their heart out. If renting a karaoke machine is out of your budget, don't worry. All you truly need is a good microphone, a selection of songs on a smartphone, and a screen to display them. Then, simply download a social singing app and let your party guests take over. Karaoke is a fun addition to all gatherings; it will bring the shy guests out of their shells and will help liven up the party vibe.

Blowing Out the Candles

No one can say no to a slice of cake at a party, and a cake for a sweet 16 should be extra special. Blowing out the candles and making a wish is an iconic moment at a birthday party, so make sure you match the occasion with a spectacular cake. Everyone has a favorite; whether your teen’s favorite is red velvet, carrot cake, or simply vanilla, make sure you cater the cake to their taste. Cupcakes are a great way to incorporate different types of flavors and are a great idea for both large and small groups. You don’t need plates and forks; party guests can simply throw away the cupcake wrapper once they have finished.
