Custom Neon Lights
One idea that’s definitely on-trend in 2023 are custom Neon Lights with “Happy Sweet 16 + Name” To greet the birthday girl or boy and guests as they enter the building. It’s also a good keepsake that will bring back memories of their party for decades to come. While hot pink is extremely trendy for these cursive neon signs, electric blue, turquoise, purple, or whatever their favorite color is would work.
A selfie wall is an inexpensive way to get your teen’s party trending and visible online. You can also use artificial vines, artificial turf, or even a greenery wall as the backdrop, then weave in some real or artificial flowers and install the custom neon lights over it for a truly unique experience (don’t forget to hashtag #turquoiseacresranch and #sweet16). Throw in a funky modern couch or chair and provide some props in an umbrella basket beside the wall like sunglasses, masquerade masks, feather boas, top hats, berets, etc. to encourage interaction and creativity.
Photo booths are a great way to let your guests get into the spirit of celebration and double as keepsakes they take with them. Old school photo booths that print out polaroid style photo reels are definitely trending right now. You can also put up some fairy lights across a wall with clips and invite guests to take pictures and add them to the wall so that the birthday girl or boy can add it to their scrapbook of sweet 16 memories.
Modern dance lessons that are simple and fun can also be a big hit at sweet 16 birthday parties. Moves like the smooth step, inverted happy feet, MJ shuffle, and hip roll are all hot in 2022. But don’t overlook the classics like the two-step, cupid shuffle, the dougie, and the chicken dance.

Is your son or daughter in sports, have any hobbies, or favorite activities? Incorporating things that they like can make their sweet 16 celebration truly unique and special. You may want to discuss these things with your decorator so that they can get a feel for the things, colors, and styles they like before finalizing design plans. Custom table toppers, flower arrangements, balloons, and personalized goody bags can all incorporate a unified design style.
Have you considered hiring a local pyrotechnician who can put on a 3 to 5 minute fireworks display? There’s no better way to end a beautiful evening of celebration than punctuating it with a fireworks show at the end. Your guests and 16 year old will love it!
