Black and White Ball

With this theme we are getting classic and modern, can you say perfect sweet sixteen? What’s not to love about black and white decor, we are absolutely taken by the cuteness and style that this theme has to offer the birthday girls. A sleek black and white birthday cake has sweet sixteen written all over it, the cake can act as party décor too, just place it on a table in the middle of the party scene. Better yet, create a dessert table or station to set up somewhere at the party. Besides the beautiful birthday cake you can also fill clear jars with black and white colored candies. Other tasty theme related treats are chocolate fountains. Add two fountains, one with dark chocolate and the other with white chocolate to really bring the black and white to life. Your guests will be thanking you for all the tasty treats.

For some black and white esque sweet sixteen party decorations that your guests will be less likely to eat, think black and white balloons and streamers. If you will be serving dinner at the party then you can also add black and white table cloths to the tables. If black and white isn’t enough for the birthday girl you can also add in a design to the party décor. Think stripes or polka dots. A 16th birthday party celebration wouldn’t be the same without displaying the numbers 1 and 6 around the party venue. Add numbered candles to the cake and the number 16 to your party banners.  This party will be looking like a true sweet sixteen in no time and the party-goers will never want the party to end.
