Throwing a Winter Sweet Sixteen Party

With the holidays in full force, unfortunately… sometimes the winter babies get lost in the shuffle. But if you’ve got a special someone turning 16 this winter, be sure to make them feel like the princess they truly are.

A Sweet Sixteen party can be extremely significant to a teenager. The event should be a celebration that is fun, creative, and as unique as they are.

Here are some sweet winter Sweet Sixteen ideas to help your teenager feel like this occasion is all about them, and not just about the holidays.

For a winter Sweet Sixteen party, decor should be sparkly. This creates a glistening snow effect and last time we checked, teenage girls tend to love glitter. Try out this DIY glitter disco ball. It’s extremely pretty and on-theme.

For a dress selection, an icy blue, shimmery, and fun & flirty frock should do the trick!
