The sixteenth birthday is a teen’s milestone to adulthood. And before big responsibilities catching up, a fun and special party can be a relief to your teen. If you’re the lucky youth, it is even better! Organizing your own party can be an opportunity to learn about being in charge of something big. Therefore, read this guide thoroughly so that your sweet sixteen can be one of the best days of your life!
A Backyard Party
Who says that having a party at home is boring. It all depends on how creative you are when you plan for it. For instance, music is vital. Without it, no matter how delicious your foods and beverages are, the party will be boring. Everyone has got to dance to good music. The organizer has excellent DJs who understand what real music is for teenagers.
Second, the decor must be authentic. Remember that a sweet sixteen is a transitional phase in your life. Drop that childish taste and go for something more mature and elegant. One clue here is not to overdo the decor. Balloons, some twinkle lights, and flowers are enough. What’s more important are games or activities that everyone can get involved, like table tennis, table football, Jenga, darts, etc.
A Mocktail Party
If you can serve drinks for your friends, you show them that you can be in charge of something, that you are reaching adulthood. Even better, learn several recipes of mocktail first, and make sure you train yourself well in making them. During the party, serve the drinks in front of your friends. And you’ll be the coolest among your friends!
However, a mocktail party will still be boring if there is no music to dance to. Therefore, you must hire a DJ or musicians for the party.
An Outdoor Movie Party
If dancing is not your thing, then why don’t you set a big screen and sound system in the backyard and invite your closest friends to come by to watch movies together with you? This kind of party doesn’t cause too much commotion, and there won’t be too many people involved. It is best if you or your teen don’t like a noisy and crowded party.
A Waterpark or Beach Party
If you don’t want your house to be dirty, or maybe you just want to have your party elsewhere for a new atmosphere, you can try a waterpark or beach party, depending on your location and budget. In a water park, you can enjoy water plays with your friends. What’s better than to ride a water slide together with your friends, anyway?
If you decide to go to a beach, you must also make sure that there are fun activities to do there. Don’t just focus on yourself! For example, if you’re good at surfing, don’t assume all your friends are comfortable with that. Provide options and prepare activities that everyone can enjoy.
