Festival Themed Sweet 16 Party

This super sweet 16 birthday was one we won’t forget! When our client asked for a festival themed birthday party, we were so excited! With its vibrant color scheme, fresh florals, and fun props, we transformed this backyard into the most amazing “Sweetchella” event!

We created an epic entrance with a giant balloon arch, themed signage, palm tree props and florals. We love how it turned out and it made a great photo op!

For the backdrop, this ferris wheel prop was perfect! We used custom painted arch backdrops, added sun and palm tree props, and of course balloons!

Check out this gorgeous cake! We incorporated elements from the backdrop and added a fun cake topper.

The birthday girl and her friends enjoyed a beautiful picnic setup with cozy rugs and pillows, fresh florals and place settings with themed cookies.

We love these custom cookies!

In addition to the main backdrop, we added some fun 16 marquee lights and a giant ferris wheel backdrop with more balloons! The hanging lanterns and bistro lighting added to the magic of the evening.

Guests enjoyed the candy cart stocked with face gems to complete their festival looks and some delicious locally made cotton candy!

We stocked up this heart shaped inflatable pool with a variety of drinks for the birthday girl and her guests to stay refreshed!

Happy birthday, Alexah! Thanks for inviting us to help make your 16 birthday extra sweet!
