A Sweet 16 party is a celebration of a teenager's most important milestone, turning 16. Celebrate this special day with a neon party, which can include brightly coloured decorations and lots of neon and glow in the dark decorations. Make some creative invitations that let your guests know what type of party you are having and what they should be expecting. Get guests ready for some bright, eye popping fun at your Sweet 16 party.

Skill level:

Things you need

  1. 1

    Cut the card stock to reflect what size and shape you'd like your invitations. Since you are hand delivering them, it doesn't matter how large they are. In fact, larger invitations would probably be more fun. Make edges fancy if you like by using decorative scissors or pinking shears.

  2. 2

    Write the party details on the invitation using glow-in-the-dark neon ink or paints, so guests will have to view the invites in the dark. Word the invitations with phrases such as "Come help Shelby light up the dark at her Sweet 16 party," or "Neon Party for Amy's 16th, come get your glow on!" Decorate the invitation with glow-in-the-dark stickers or cut outs.

  3. 3

    Attach a small neon-coloured glow stick necklace or other neon favours to the invitation that guests can wear to the party. Remind guests to wear something white if possible to make themselves glow at the neon party. Hand deliver the invitations to make it more fun and to give guests their party favours.
