i would say a surperise party what you can do for that is ask her to write a list of who see wants ot come ot her party and invite those peopel on her list and send them invitations butr dont tell your daughter about anything and then have a limo pick your daughter up and bring her to where you \r having the party at w\and when she get sout of the limo and goes inot the room all her friends will be there to say surp\rsie and she will be so happy trust me well good lck and have fun palnning

A wonderful thing would be a theme party for her sweet 16th. You could have a formal party and have the guys wear tuxes and the girls could wear their homecoming dresses (again).

Have a 50's car hop party with the grill on and the kids boping to the tunes of the era.

Would your DD like a party at her fav restraunt?

give her the huge party for her sweet 16 if it's nothing that can hurt her then why fight with her. She is changing, she might want to do more grown up thing's, let her. she only turn's 16 once and turning 16 makes a difference in a girls life. I think you should give her the party!!!!!!!

Hey Linda. I don't know if your daughter's birthday has already happened yet, but I was just going to suggest that maybe a date with her mom would be good. I have three girls and they would rather I book a horseback trail ride in the mountains somewhere or take them skiing or fishing just me and them more than anything else. I think showing them how special they are to you by taking time out of your busy schedule to do something totally dedicated to spending time with them is a wonderful gift. I dont' know how many kids you have, but I was one of three and I wish my mom had done some one on one stuff with me more often. If she is a city girl, it may be a nice change of scenery to try something new. What about taking her repelling, or promising to and following through with taking her on a rafting trip this summer? Kids now are so big on limos and bling ect. What about getting back to things that aren't centered so much on monetary value placed in forgettable stuff, but some true "You are special to me and I wanted to take some time with you" birthdays. Hope this helped in some way. Just in case you think I am older, well, I am going to be 26 on Jan. 4. I also have three daughters who I am going to start taking time to go on mini "dates" with them individually. They need to feel special by my taking time with them away from the other two on occasion. If you go over the top with the whole limo thing, ect. She may expect each birthday after that to meet or exceed what her 16th was. Keep it sweet and simple and do a family with a couple close friends at home then whisk her off to a fun filled mom and daughter adventure weekend. Shoot, take her on a scavenger hunt in the woods and have her hunt for her gifts. There are lots of fun ideas to do.. Best Wishes for a fun filled 16th

irst find out if shes been watching " My Sweet 16" on MTV. If she has and you have no money to throw her anything remotely close to the extravagant parties on that show, forget about it.

You could throw her in a limo and take a tour around where you live, then bring her back home to a surpise party. or you could by her a car, or take her out on holiday and plan something out there like e.g. party or something special.

My goddaughter turned 16 in October and we rented a "banquet room" at a rec center (which was only $50.00 - to be returned if the place was cleaned at the end of the party) and rented a KAROKE machine. We invited all her friends and spent the whole day decorating. It was a HUGE surprise when she got there. Simple but fun! BBQ & cake & munchies!! It was lots of fun for everyone actually!!

well linda im throwing my sweet 16 next year and have your daughter to recieve the ultimate in pampering. take her to a nice boutique to pick out a dress or if you want a theme fancy dress is the best. but whatever you do make sure you have the limousine with red capret and the snazzy invites. make sure your daughter invites everyone she knows and another thing you might like for the party to go smoothly is a security gaurd at the door and i wish you the best of luck.

your daughter should definatley have a sweet sixteen extravaganza. one of my biggest regrets is not doinf enough to celebrate turning 16 becasue it reall is a big deal. now im turning 18 and im going all out. what about a costume party? it may sound a little childish but can be a lot of fun. also, i heard a real original idea im considering for my party. buy a large roll of wallpaper or some kind of plain paper and cover a wall of your party venue. then get guests to write messages for your daughter, it will be something to keep forever!

I would let her pick it out so that you know that she will like it. 

Name: monika | Date: Mar 22nd, 2006 3:44 PM
what is your price limit? im 15 and always wanted a cinderella type ball, but they can be expensive!!! lol, if not throw her something like a bbq party if its hot, what ever it is im sure she will be happy monika x x x

My daughter is also celebrating her sweet 16 this year. To throw them the parties they would like would cost far too much. I do not believe that 16 year olds should be drinking, so the comments made to that effect I do not agree with. We have just moved within the last year and my daughter has made some new friends. I know they have something planned for her birthday. What my plans are is to get together her old friends (and her new ones of course) and have them all meet at her favorite restaurant as a surprise. I can't wait to see her face when she thinks we are only doing dinner and all her friends are there.

my 1 daughter is having her sweet sixteen and the other is graduating from college. they want me to send them both on a nice trip. should I? or have any other suggestions for nice presents? 

Name: jenna | Date: Apr 20th, 2006 5:16 PM
Rent 2 hotel rooms next to each other,1 for you and 1 for her and some friends. Make sure it has a pool!! Order pizza,soda,snacks etc.Let them bring a CD player and their own music and let them have a ball!! In the morning take them all to breakfast someplace.Your daughter will think thats cool! 

Name: camryn | Date: May 1st, 2006 4:04 PM
i think you should let her, let her pick out a theme and choose a budget, and make sure she sticks with it! 

Name: parrty girl | Date: May 4th, 2006 10:27 PM

My advice is plan out your party well...plan your budget and a cute party theme is a hawaiin theme! My daughter loved it very much that she showed her appreciation but buying a card that was specialized and then a bunch of flowers! It was cute! 

Name: nina | Date: Jun 2nd, 2006 4:02 PM
sry but the themes are kind of kiddy coming from a gril who has 4 sisters and all already had their sweet sixteens.... what we did was have 2 time partys which are one during the day and then one a night ... during the day 12:00 - 4:30 we rented a waterslide and had the swimming pool open and we also had a basketball hoop for the guys .... then by 5:00 everybody goes back home to change into semi - formal clothing for the night party - at night a dj comes and we set a big screen that plays music videos -the party was awesome every year

i am in the m iddle of planning my sweet 16 im having it at a hall with catered food and im deciding what theme to do to. im leaning towards luah or pretty in pink. Cinderella is way to popular its not unique. 

Name: heather | Date: Jul 1st, 2006 1:41 AM
for a huge party for your daughter, throw a co-ed party with how many kids you want.You could rent out a big room in a hotel with a dance floor or you could just have it at your house. You could pick a theme for the party , like Las Vegas, Pretty in Pink or a Hawiian Luau. Get a DJ to play all the latest music and to introduce her for her "Grand Entrance".
