Facebook event mistakenly invites 1,500 guests to Sweet 16

Date Created: 06/06/2011

Facebook event mistakenly invites 1,500 guests to Sweet 16. A teenager from Hamburg, Germany, got more than she bargained for when she sent out an invitation for her Sweet 16 party. According to, Thessa only intended to have a few of her friends over, but she did not set the invitation to private which inspired an unexpected viral response that drew some 1,500 guests to her home.

Thessa's parents ended up calling the police to control the rowdy crowd that had formed on their front lawn. The crowd brought everything from cake, presents and balloons, and held up signs that said "Where's Thessa?" and chanting, "Thessa, celebrating a birthday is not a crime!"

While this hilarious situation was certainly a birthday to remember, with some traditional party invitations you can avoid a flash-mob on your lawn. A Sweet 16 party decked out with mylar balloons, personalized banners and streamers will create an unforgettable atmosphere.

Make sure you get plenty of input from your daughter so that you can pick the perfect theme for her bash. Hand out some personalized chocolate bars, party favors and other Sweet 16 party supplies that will be a great memento from your birthday bash.
