What’s in a theme?

Why choose a themed party? Because they’re awesome, that’s why! Themed parties are also a fantastic way to create a cohesive look for your shindig. Throw your birthday teen a party they will definitely remember for their Sweet 16 or Quinceañera by choosing a theme that fits their personality and hobbies. If you are in need of some inspiration on just what kind of décor or theme to choose for your teen’s birthday celebration, below are a few of our favorite themes to help dress up a party.

 Photography Theme

If your teen is into photography, think about hosting your Sweet 16 or Quinceañera party with a photography theme. Use photos the birthday teen has taken and place them around for décor that has a truly personal touch. Photo booths make for tons of fun, so get a selection of props and encourage all your party guests to dress up and photograph the party away. Creating a special memory book for the birthday teen with some of the photo booth pictures is a great gift to give them full of sentiment and memories.  Pen Factory offers a selection of customizable photo pens and photo keychains that you can have made to commemorate the birthday festivities as well.

Neon Pop Theme

This party will be so bright, you may want to give out some sunglasses to go with it! If you are in the market to throw a vibrant, totally teenager-friendly party, try going for décor in varied shades of neon colors. The festive pop of bright colors is enough to make most anyone party ready. Decorate your tables with practical party gifts like neon custom pens and pencils, goodie bags filled with journals or photo albums, and colorful paper goods. Neon colors are perfect for birthday celebrations any time of year as they mimic the bright days of summer and go straight through to boost spirits in the cold of winter. Add some custom neon party supplies to the mix to brighten both your teen’s birthday and their mood!

Favorite Movie/Play/Sports Team Theme

This one is for all the fanatics out there with a favorite team or scene. Make your teen’s party into the set of their favorite movie or play and use props from the scenes to ‘set the stage’ for the party. Another great décor theme is to go with a favorite sport or sports team. Host your sports themed party with a faux set up of a playing field and customize your gifts and prizes to include intriguing displays with the appropriate sports equipment and team colors. Using a theatrical or sports theme to outfit Quinceañera and Sweet 16 parties provides a fun way to get your teens and their friends using their imaginations.

Mystery Theme

Detectives get ready- there is a mystery to be solved! Mysteries keep things interesting, so have the birthday teen and their friends go on a scavenger hunt or solve mysteries with this theme. Use your personalized party supplies as clues along the way to help them solve the mystery or use them as prizes at the end of the hunt. One mystery that was solved long ago though- custom party supplies are all the rage when it comes to throwing a satisfyingly memorable teenage birthday party.

Customizing your décor to the theme of the party will help you send a celebratory message to the birthday teen. You can create an atmosphere worth remembering by getting creative and finding personal ways to honor the birthday one.  Pen Factory offers a selection of Sweet 16 and Quinceañera party supplies to help get you started on your party decorating journey. Sweet 15 and Sweet 16, we are ready to greet you with custom party swag for any theme!
