Sweet Treat Ideas for a Sweet 16 Birthday Party


Want to make your Sweet 16 party ideas even sweeter? Here are 16 fabulous ways:

Ice Cream Bar

Ice cream is fun, but how about a sundae bar? Take it to the next level and serve fresh homemade ice cream.

Build Your Own Favors at this Buffet

Talk about the ultimate in personalized favors. Create a candy buffet and let guests fill their own goody bags.

Snow Cones

Crank up the snow-cone machine and let guests custom order their treats. Buy syrup or make your own.

Cake Pops

These trendy treats are fantastic multi-taskers. Use Sweet 16 cake pops as favors or create centerpiece displays.

Custom Lollipops

Speaking of multi-taskers, personalized lollipops fall into that category as well. Use them as place settings or cluster them as centerpieces.

Cookie Pops

Even store-bought varieties such as Oreos make great cookie pops. If the birthday girl isn’t wild about cake – people like that do exist – serve a giant birthday cookie instead and ice the cookie pops to match.

Chocolate Fountain

With a dessert table featuring a chocolate fountain, guests won’t want to wait until after the main course. Offer marshmallows, fruit, pretzels and cake cubes for dipping. And don’t forget the personalized napkins. Things can get messy.

Fruit Kabobs

Particularly for summer parties when the ingredients are fresh and in season, fruit kabobs are fantastically refreshing. Serve with or without dip.

Champagne glass cupcakes

It’s a favor! It’s dessert! It’s both when you perch cupcakes in custom wrappers atop colorful candy in a plastic champagne glass.

Chocolate-Covered Strawberries

Expensive to buy but oh-so easy to make, chocolate-covered strawberries look great on a dessert tray or on top of the cake.

Personalized Sodas

Make beverages part of your decor, too, with colorful sodas served with customized bottle labels.
