Celebrating the “Sweet 16” birthday has become especially popular over the years. For parents, throwing a Sweet Sixteen party can quickly feel overwhelming—especially if you’ve never been through one yourself! Autumn is a great time for Sweet Sixteen parties. Here are a couple of tips for planning a fall-themed Sweet Sixteen.
Choose a Venue (Ideally Exchange Hall!)
If fifty (or more!) screaming, excited kids running around with soda and cake in hand sounds like a strain on your home, then you should choose a venue for your event to take place. This should be one of the first steps you take, since wedding receptions, award ceremonies, and other events will be competing for locations. In choosing a venue, make sure it fits your needs—double check how long you can be there and if they provide referrals for vendor services (like a DJ). We have experience in hosting sweet sixteens and birthday parties, and happy to help with your plans.
Embrace Fall Decor
If the sight of pumpkins and colorful leaves gives you a warm and fuzzy feeling, translate that sensation into your Sweet Sixteen celebration. This can range from homemade save-the-date cards, displaying colorful pressed leaves and opting for tablecloths and table runners in vibrant shades of bordeaux and dark orange.
