Sweet sixteen party themes are super popular. In addition to the Mardi Gras and America's Next Model ideas mentioned above, there are dozens of different themes out there. A theme can be carried throughout the invitations, event and even in the favors. Therefore, you should take some time determining a fun theme. Consider ones from Fashion Glam and Formal Balls to Alice in Wonderland, Go Green (for the sustainability crowd), Makeover, Sleepover, Karaoke, Diamond Princess, and even the old Toga Party. Our personal favorite is the Limo Scavenger Hunt. You can never go wrong with a limo. (My apologies to the Green party people.) A survey by one party site concluded that the most popular theme was a glow-in-the-dark neon dance party. The important thing is that the theme reflects your daughter's desires or interests. If she's a jock, go with sports. If she adores New York, have a Big Apple party. Fluent in French? Golden Goose How about a Paris themed brunch with crepes, berets and cappuccino (if you dare)?
