With a number of kids known to me turning 16, I got to witness quite a selection of themed sweet sixteen parties. There were garden tea parties, surprise parties, beauty & the geek parties, masquerade parties and many more. Did you have a party to celebrate turning 16? or have you attended one? If you did, please describe.
I had a sixteenth birthday party, but it wasn't really different from my fifteenth or seventeenth birthday. What's so special about sixteen? The only thing I can think of that changes is that you are then legally the age of consent. Surely parents aren't actually throwing their kids a party celebrating the fact that they are now old enough to have sex?
I never had one. Growing up in the UK, sweet sixteen parties weren't really that popular. I had a couple of friends in America who had big sweet 16th parties, but they just weren't something that was common in the UK.
Yes I did but nothing of the scale that they hold today. I am happy that mine was much simpler as it left me with celebrations to look forward to and a building sense of anticipation as I grew into adulthood.
