You want to plan something special for your daughter's sweet 16 birthday. Involve her friends and family and celebrate this particular birthday like no other. She will remember this time in her life forever. Do something memorable and significant to mark this special occasion, and, more importantly, do something you know she will love.

Party Time

Rent out a community clubhouse or hold the party in your home or backyard. Have her write out a guest list of all the people she would like to invite--classmates, best friends, boyfriends and family members. Have personalised invitations made for each guest. Stage the party at a site with room to dance and hire a disc jockey or a band to play her favourite tunes through the night. For decorations, put up collages of photos of her from childhood to the present. Place a photo on poster board and have all her guests sign it and write a sweet 16 birthday message. For a fun twist, hold a theme party--such as Alice in Wonderland, punk rock, 1960s, '70s or '80s or formal dress. Serve her favourite foods.


Have her choose 10 to 15 of her close friends or family members and rent a limousine to take them out in style. The limo could go to each of the kids' homes to pick them up and take them to a spa or salon, where they can get pampered and styled for the night--make-up, hair, manicures and pedicures. Once they are ready, the limo could take them to a downtown restaurant of your daughter's choice for a fun dinner with her favourite pals. You can reserve a private dining room at the restaurant and have other friends and family meet there to celebrate. After dinner, the limo can take the party to another venue such as a teen dance club, karaoke site or ice cream shop.

Theme Park

Get a group of your daughter's friends together and take them out for a day at a theme park such as Six Flags or Great America. The teens can spend the day on thrilling roller coasters and other rides. Pack some cupcakes or treats so everyone can gather at some point to celebrate the birthday girl. Or pack a picnic of her favourite foods so you can have a lunch of her choice while the kids take a break from the activities. Sometimes, theme parks host concerts in the evenings--go on a day when a performer she likes is playing. Perhaps she can get a mention of her birthday during the show.
