Those over the top parties you see on MTV aren't done around here for 16 year olds thank goodness! What is the norm where you are? She hasn't asked me for anything and it is next month.

 She was performing in a play on her 16th birthday, so a bunch of family members and friends came to watch it, and we went to a local pizza place afterwards for dinner and to celebrate her birthday.

My kids are not party people, so it was at home with cake, ice cream and presents. Then they go and do something fun with their friends.

My older 2 kids both chose cars for their 16th over big parties, so for my SD we had a beach party with about 50 friends down at the lake Hawaiian luau theme. For my DS we did something similar with friends down at the lake. I have a feeling my dd age 15 will opt for the car and smaller car as well. :)

My dd didn't want any type of sweet 16 party. We did what we always do in our family~ birthday person gets to pick where we go for dinner to celebrate  their day.

About a month ago I answered this question:

For my dd's Sweet 16 we rented a party bus for 6 hours for dd and 28 of her friends.  We filled it with balloons and catered it with Italian heros and chocolate covered strawberries.  It came with a $10K sound system and video screen (dd's friends made a video collage and filled  up 4 iPods with music).  They drove all over Manhattan and made stops in Times Square and the South Street Seaport.  My sister and her fiance chaperoned (she's a lot younger and cooler than I am, lol).  

Everyone wore black & white.  Dd wore a gorgeous red satin dress and tiara.  The invitations were black & white with a red satin bow tied into each one.  

Everything we bought and did for this party came out to less than $2000.   Dd's friends said it was the best party ever and many chose a party bus for their party as well. 

Here's the link to that thread for some more ideas.
