When hosting a sweet 16 party for girls, consider themes such as a dance party with 16 of the birthday girl's favorite songs on replay or a pink pool party complete with pink beach balls and decorations. A roller skating party with 16 obstacle courses on the rink or a scavenger hunt party prompting guests to find 16 of the birthday girl's favorite items are also ideas for the celebration.
If the group of 16-year-old girls attending the celebration is into video games, set up 16 stations with dance, music and competitive games for the girls to play at the party. An outdoor movie party with a projector screen on the side of a home allows the girls to watch a movie themed around 16-year-olds, such as "16 Candles."
A pampering party may also delight a group of 16-year-olds, complete with pedicures, manicures, facials, makeovers and hair styling. Add some glam to the celebration, and prompt each guest to style someone else's hair, nails or wardrobe. Slumber parties for the sweet 16 birthday are also popular. Gather magazines, favorite movies, popcorn, snacks and sleeping bags for a night in with the gal pals to celebrate the birthday girl's monumental day.
