Choose a popular teen movie to show, and select party decorations and games that go with the movie choice. An outdoor movie is also a great addition to a Sweet 16 pool party.

A scavenger hunt party can take place in a neighborhood, downtown or at a local mall. Theme each item after something special about the guest of honor.
