Choosing a Theme for Your Sweet Sixteen Party

Sweet 16 Yacht Charter in NYC

Turning sixteen is a once-in-a-lifetime event that every young lady looks forward to. The best way to mark the occasion and ensure it’s a night you’ll never forget is to throw a Sweet Sixteen party!

So, you’ve narrowed down the guest list and chosen Metro Yacht Charters as the perfect Sweet Sixteen venue in NYC. Now all that’s left to do is pick a theme that shows off your unique personality and interests!

Here are just a few ideas to consider when choosing a theme for your Sweet Sixteen party:

Under the Sea

This is not the type of Disney theme you remember as a kid with Ariel and her friends. For your Sweet Sixteen, approach an under the sea theme with the mystery of a world beneath the surface. Think of cool, ocean-blue colors and the golden sparkle of sunken treasure. And honestly, where better to host an under the sea Sweet Sixteen party than aboard a private yacht charter?


Who doesn’t love a good beach-themed party? Just because you won’t be sailing off to the islands of Hawaii doesn’t mean you can’t host your very own luau on the Hudson River! Hand out leis to everyone, serve tropical punch, have a limbo contest, and maybe even hire a hula dancer. You can even set up a photo booth area and give guests luau-themed props to pose with to really make them feel like they’re in the Aloha State.


Say “Ahoy!” to this theme. Maybe we’re a little biased, but we’re all about the water and boating-themed parties! I mean, how great is it when you can host a nautical-themed Sweet Sixteen party on an actual boat? Have guests leave you little birthday messages in a bottle, decorate the space with blue and white accents, and indulge in sailor-themed sweets. Anchors away!

Hollywood Nights

Glitz, glam, and a night aboard a deeply fabulous private yacht—what’s more Hollywood than that? Ask your guests to dress to impress and have them walk the red carpet as they make their grand entrance. Set up a snack bar with all the quintessential movie theatre classics to make it feel like a real movie premiere and have “paparazzi” walk around all night snapping photos of the VIPs.

No matter which theme you choose, there’s no better choice for your Sweet Sixteen party venue in NYC than a private yacht from Metro Yacht Charters! We offer yachts in a variety of sizes, depending on how many guests you want to invite, and are here to help you every step of the way.
