When everyone is throwing a party for their 16th birthday, you want to stand out from the crowd. Here are 5 hand crafted picks that will make your party a night to remember.

Stars and Zebra print invitation by Etsy artisan Inky Pinky Paperie
1) Stars and Zebra print invitation   
You'll have everyone buzzing before the party even starts with this fun and girly invitation. If stars and zebra print aren't for you, customize the invitation with your favorite prints and colors. 

Dresses by Etsy designer MyLolaFashion
2) Colorful Party Dress 
Be the star of your party in a vibrant hued dress. Hot pink is super girly while turquoise pops on almost any complexion. Both options pair perfectly with black party pumps and silver jewelry. 

Arrangement by Etsy florist Palette Royale
3) Dried floral arrangement center piece  
Real flowers will wither away, but a dried floral arrangement will last forever. These pink rosettes will look beautiful as a centerpiece on your tables. 

Cupcake Toppers by Etsy crafter JustTheCuteStuff
  4) Cupcake Toppers  
Instead of a traditional cake, try something different by having a cupcake for each guest with a festive cupcake topper. Personalize it with your name and color scheme to tie your party together. 

Candelabra by Etsy artisan NameWithFlame
5) Customized Candelabra Just because there's no cake doesn't mean you shouldn't have candles! Line your cupcakes up next to a Candelabra and you'll have 16 candles to blow out during the happy birthday song.

Here's where you can find each of the items featured:
1) Sweet 16 Invitation by Inky Pinky Paperie
2) Dresses by MyLolaFashion
3)  Floral Arrangement by PaletteRoyale 
4) Cupcake Toppers by JustTheCuteStuff
5) Candelabra by NameWithFlame 

Lindsay's Art Picks for Sweet Sixteens

Flamingo Art, 8X10
1) Flamingo Fantasy
I love flamingos for their beautiful pink coloring. This painting captures that beautifully and would add color to a 16 year old's room decor~LL

Butterfly Goddess, 20X20
 2) Butterfly Goddess
The purple tones in this painting are youthful yet sophisticated. I love the swirls in the background; they make this painting so unique~LL
