Sweet Sixteen Celebrations are often portrayed in movies as big, expensive affairs. Something along the line of a Quinceañera or even a wedding reception.

That is great, and if you have the budget for that sort of teen party, the sky is the limit! You may even hire a party planner to help manage all the details of a large affair.

Not everyone is in that situation, and I think no matter what your budget, everyone is always looking for something creative and memorable.  

This website offers lots of ideas for teen parties, both large and small.
