Sweet 16 Surprise Birthday Party


How sweet is this!? Being surprised by all of your friends and family dressed up to impress for your Hollywood Themed Sweet 16 Birthday Party! Beautiful decorations, dancing, and sweets. Now it’s a party!  A Reigning Affair did a great job planning this surprise event.

The Event ~ This surprise sweet sixteen party was thrown for a truly sweet young lady by her mom in the backyard and basement of a Dorchester home. The theme was “Hollywood Celebrity” with a musical twist that gave the party the mature feel that my client was looking for all at the same time keeping the party fun for the guests. Guests were asked to dress to impress to help the birthday girl celebrate her birthday in true celebrity style.

The Planning ~ Making this party come together was not an easy feat. With a color palette of lavender and turquoise, space limitations, keeping the element of surprise, as well as a modest budget, we had our work cut out for us. As we traveled through the planning process we tried to at all times keep the wants of our client in mind as well as add key elements that would create that wow factor. From the initial charms on the candy buffet containers to the musical notes sprinkled on each cupcake we tried to make this an event that they would remember always.

Other special elements ~ Glowing centerpieces on the guest tables, the poprock martinis made from black cherry soda and strawberry poprocks, and the little crystal table accents strewn about under ever changing lighting gave the event the elegant fun touch we were going for. We completely revamped the basement turning it into a small club for the kids. We had a great DJ, Mr. Keys and an awesome photographer D.irvin, that kept the kids smiling and dancing into the night. After the kids were done partying the birthday girl cut into an amazing cake made by Cakes by Erin in Haverhill, MA, and we knew the party was a success. All in all though I think it was our attention to detail and true desire to make our clients vision a reality what made this surprise sweet sixteen party unforgettable for our clients as well as for us.
