Organize a Dance Party
A dance party can turn out to be a huge success for both, girls and boys. Since teenagers are enthusiastic and always full of energy, they will definitely enjoy dancing together. The dance party can be organized in the backyard, in your living room, in a discotheque, or simply on the terrace of your building.
If possible, you can hire a DJ to play some hit songs from the latest albums. You can switch to various dance forms throughout the party to add more fun to it. You can go for salsa, Latin, disco, African, or even Jazz and play the music according to the dance style. A casual dress code for this kind of a sweet 16 birthday party can work well.
Play Your Favorite Sport
Friends and family gathering around to play the birthday boy or girl's favorite sport will not only be a unique idea, but a whole lot of fun as well. It won't need much money and will indeed make the birthday party a memorable one. You can simply form two teams of the invitees and play your favorite sport such as baseball, basketball, or tennis.
