Decorating The Room

Decorating the room is the first thing you should think about decorating for your sweet sixteen party. The room sets the tone for the rest of the evening, if guests arrive and everything is decorated in sweet sixteen style decorations then you will definitely set the tone that you put time and effort into the evening and that it will be a blast!

Think about:

  • Outside of the building – Entryway, signs directing guests where to go, balloons, sweet sixteen lighting
  • Entrance – Where guests walk in (create a middle space, a small area where guests must check-in, they get a wrist band and then are allowed into the party)
  • Walls – Will you leave them blank or put up signs with the birthday girls name, cover them in decorations,
  • Ceiling – Can you hang balloons from the ceiling, columns, or other room enhancing decorations
  • Floor – Lighting is the safest, you can also use glitter and confetti in some rooms

Decorating the Tables

Decorating the tables so that guests are surrounded by sweet sixteen party decorations is something to think about. Generally giveaways on the table for everyone works well, assorted glow sticks and necklaces, masks, light making LEDs, disposable cameras, beads, leis, just about anything that can be worn works well.

This helps ease guests into the evening because they have a prop they can use to help them get more in the party atmosphere. This works very well for people who are more quiet, it gives them something to work with.

Think about:

  • Centerpieces
