When planning your daughter's sweet 16 birthday party, keep her taste in mind. Even though your daughter is coming out of her childhood, she still can have an exciting birthday party. Create stylish decorations, put out her favourite foods and have a couple of activities planned for the birthday girl and her party guests.

Black Light Party

Plan a black light party for your daughter's sweet 16. Hold this party in the evening so the black lights will be more effective. On the invitations, tell the party guests to wear white or bright clothes that will glow in the black lights. Let the birthday girl wear all white so she will stand out. When guests show up, give them a few glow sticks and highlighters. Colouring their fingernails and toenails with the highlighters will make them glow. Replace all white bulbs with black light bulbs, available at most dollar stores or retail stores. Give each party guest a white T-shirt to decorate with neon markers and paint at the party.

Surprise Party

Get in touch with all your daughter's friends well before her birthday and plan a surprise party. To throw her off, have the party the weekend before her birthday when she is not expecting anything. Decorate the party area in pink, white and silver. If you don't think a party will please her, surprise her by getting her best friends together and hiring a limousine. Tell your daughter to get dressed up because you are taking her somewhere fancy for a birthday dinner. When you are about to leave, have the limo filled with her friends pull up. It could take the girls to dinner and the movies or their favourite hangout. However you plan to surprise her, make sure her friends know to keep the event a secret.

Toga Party

Throw your daughter a sweet 16 toga party. Tell guests to bring a white bed sheet or piece of fabric and help them create their togas--if they don't come dressed in them. Guests can use green vines and brown sandals to accessorise their costumes. Have dance music playing and an area set aside for dancing. Place fruit baskets, green ivy plants and white Christmas lights around the party area. Serve Greek salads, sandwich wraps and fresh fruit trays. Award prizes to the funniest, scariest and best toga costume.
