A girl's "Sweet 16 " birthday comes once in a lifetime. You can make your daughter's birthday memorable by throwing a party to celebrate this important milestone in her life. The decorations should mirror the theme of the party, which is fun and youthful. Streamers and balloons in various shades of pink are an easy way to decorate. Flirty table centerpieces pull the whole look of the venue, whether indoors or outdoors, together to create a splendid look. There are several different kinds of table centerpieces that you can create to make your daughter's sweet 16 birthday party even more special.
Iluminated Punch Bowl
A large glass punch bowl is the perfect base for this centerpiece. Fill a large bowl with water and add one or two drops of red ink. Float 16 small floating candles in the bowl and scatter a pinch of gold or silver glitter over the water. Light the candles a few minutes before the guests are due to arrive.
Tiaras and Mirrors
Party supply stores sell a wide array of plastic tiaras. Some tiaras are specially created for sweet 16 parties and have a large number "16" in the center. Place one of the crowns on a medium-sized round mirror in the center of the table. Sprinkle the border of the mirror and table with metallic pink confetti hearts to complete the centerpiece.
Flowers and Glitter
Flowers are always a hit when it comes to a girl's birthday party. For a sweet 16 party, pink and red roses are sure to make a statement. Arrange the roses in batches of 16 and place in a vase on the center of each of the tables. Sprinkle the flowers with flecks of gold or silver glitter to finish.
Sweet Lollipop Pail
There is nothing sweeter than candy when it comes to throwing a birthday party. For a sweet 16 party, 16 lollipops make the perfect tabletop centerpiece. Place a small foam ball inside a small aluminum pail. Insert 16 lollipops in an attractive arrangement. Tie a large grosgrain ribbon around the rim of the pail and finish with a bow to complete.
