Sweet Sixteen Party Themes

You only turn sixteen once! Make your sweet sixteen party special by choosing a theme that will wow your guests. Consider these popular party theme options for your birthday bash.


Sweet_16_Candy_Bar_WrapperLights! Camera! Action! Make your guests feel like celebrities at your Hollywood themed sweet sixteen celebration. Have everyone enter by walking the red carpet with a photographer snapping photos at the entrance for the paparazzi  effect. Decorate with old hollywood posters and red, white and black balloons and stars. Require guests to wear formal attire fit for your oscar-like affair. Give out mini oscars to best dressed, best dancer, best comedian and best hair style to make them feel like stars. Waiters can serve non-alcoholic punch and sparkling grape juice while everyone dances the night away to high energy club music with pulsing strobe lights. Put a popcorn maker in a corner of the room with a flavor station and small popcorn holders for each guest to hold their popcorn concoction. Finish the night off by giving each guest a personalized candy favor such as SBP04 A Flashy Affair.


Customized_Chocolate_BarsWho doesn’t like chocolate? Celebrate your sixteenth birthday in sweet style with a chocolate party theme. Use chocolate brown, creme and white as your decor colors when creating your chocolate masterpiece. Along with brown streamers, balloons, tablecloths and napkins, create vases filled with various chocolates for the centerpieces. Surround your centerpieces with small votive candles to brighten each table. To make your event extra sweet, ask guests to only wear chocolate colored clothing. Don’t forget to fill the room with CHOCOLATE! Give your guests plenty to choose from–chocolate cake, chocolate milkshakes, a chocolate fountain, hot chocolate & chocolate faux-tinis. Send them home with a favor they will love! A custom Hershey’s chocolate bar like our item SB150 Chocolate Pattern is both delicious and a perfect keepsake.

Glow Dance Party

Your friends will love celebrating in the dark while wearing white & neon clothing covered in glow necklaces & bracelets. Provide lots of glow sticks for guests to wave in the air while dancing to club party music. Deck the room with neon signs, black lights, glow-in-the-dark balloons and neon streamers. Add to the party atmosphere by putting a black paper roll around the party walls for guests to decorate with glow markers & neon tape. Set up a glow-in-the-dark face paint station to bring extra light to the room.  Put a spin on the traditional birthday cake by feeding your guests a cake with black icing and orange, green, yellow & pink splatters that will glow. Match your theme with a sweet party favor like our SBT10 Paint Splatter personalized chocolate bars.
