Sweet Sixteen 16 Birthday Tips

Sweet Sixteen

is the ultimate age: exactly halfway through a youth’s teenage years! It is the perfect time for a captivating social gathering to celebrate one’s special birthday. Guests are invited to the host’s private home to dine, socialize and celebrate in recognition of this special day. Whether this event is wild and lively, or calm and peaceful, each will display the birthday’s theme. Themes range from a variety of choices, each portraying an entirely different atmosphere: Exotic, Fantasy, Night life, Aquatic or any other aura. Food and beverages will be served as well as a hip DJ to keep the mood flowing. This day only comes once, so make it the best you can!

Quinceanos

is the Hispanic custom to celebrate the daughter’s Sweet Sixteen or historically known as The Sweet Fifteen. This event focuses on the transition from childhood to adulthood. The opening begins with a religious ceremony followed by the reception usually held in the home or a banquet hall. The daughter will wear a tiara portraying the number 16 on it as well as a ball gown. Families should select a theme that has special meaning to them. Themes revolve around the child’s interests so they will live out their perfect day. Everyone has a different tradition or custom, there is no right one. During the reception, the Quinceanera Waltz begins (The Vals). The males must all wear tuxedos. The first dance is danced by the daughter with her father or second most important male in the family. Sometimes the waltz is followed by a self-composed choreography, which is usually performed by with friends. The music can range from traditional waltz to popular hip-hop.

Other Cultures

can celebrate their Sweet Sixteen incorporating their traditions into the reception. They can serve their culture’s food and beverages for dinner as well as serve traditional appetizers. To help create the cultural atmosphere in the hostess’ home, playing their culture’s music is a great mood setter. Also, wearing the cultural garments adds even more traditionalism to the event. The main focus in one’s culture may be God, so the dominant focus during the celebration may be thanking God and then celebrating the child’s successes. Others may be honoring their heritage’s symbols and representing them during the event. Examples may include Chinese animals or the Christian cross.
