Teen Party Ideas

Teen Party Ideas
by Wendy Switzer

Sweet 16 Party

  • Poster board - black and a main color, 1 piece for every 2 letters in the name
  • Adhesive
  • Balloons
  • Metallic gift wrap
  • Paper gift wrap
  • Cardstock matching poster board colors
  • Tulle
  • Ribbon
  • Party Favors
  1. Cut each piece of poster board in half.  
  2. Cut the lighter/contrasting color into letters to spell the name of the party guest or occasion.
  3. Adhere the letters onto the black poster board pieces.  Cut around each letter leaving a 1/4"-1/2" border creating a mat around each letter.
  4. Cut smaller letters to finish creating your banner/title/names, etc. 
Favor cake boxes
  1. Cut cake boxes using contrasting cardstock color for the box and the other for the lid.       I used the Cricut machine, "Tie the Knot" cartridge and the "cake box" shape. 
  2. Punch two holes in the end of the box.
  3. Cut 8" of coordinating ribbon and string through the holes, tying a bow on the outside of the box.
  4. Fill the boxes with goodies or specialty party favors
  5. Stack the boxes in 4-6 rows to create a tower of favor boxes. 
Theme Sandwiches
  1. A fun way to feed a lot of teens is fix sandwiches! Not only regular bread sandwiches...but create bread that goes along with the party theme.
    • Shape dough into the birthday number...sweet 16, 21, etc.
    • Shape dough into a party theme, football, princess crown, etc
Decorative Snack Bowls
Dollar stores are a great way to create a fancy look for very little money.
  1. Purchase large bowls and small bowls.
  2. Place the smaller bowls upside down on the table.  Place the larger bowls on top of the smaller bowls. 
  3. Tie a ribbon around the top of the smaller bowl.  Add a party favor or other decor to create a unique look.
