Sweet sixteen season can certainly be exciting. However, many parties ultimately end up being exactly the same! You know the drill: indoor catering hall, candle ceremony, cheesy party favors (after all, how many pairs of oversized sunglasses can you even have?!). If your sweet sixteen party is coming up, it’s likely that you want it to be fun, memorable, and completely unique to your dazzling personality. And it’s also likely that the last thing you want is to have a party that’s practically identical to the last three sweet sixteen parties you attended this year. With summer just around the corner, why not think outside the box and have a backyard sweet 16 party?
Sweet sixteens can cost anywhere between $300 and $25,000. Having a backyard sweet 16 party will help you to save a great deal of money on venue costs and put your funds towards the hundreds of other details that go into planning a party, such as food, decorations, or favors.
Check out these awesome theme ideas for your backyard sweet 16 party:
Outdoor Vintage Movie Party
This elegant backyard party theme will have your friends and classmates talking about your soiree for years to come. To have an outdoor movie party, rent a projector and screen (or just use a large white sheet!). Lay out tons of comfy places for your guests to sit while you play dreamy black and white films. When you send out invitations, invite your guests to dress like their favorite old-Hollywood film stars. You can even rent a red carpet to give everyone the star treatment!
Around the World
Let your celebration take you and your guests to the most beautiful parts of the world. Using a few backyard tent rentals, decorate each tent as a continent of choice. From there, invest in party equipment and decor that will make each table an individual country. This way, your guests can get a taste of the world without leaving your backyard! Additionally, tent rentals allow you to get as creative as possible without worrying about weather conditions.
