Sweet Sixteen Birthday parties are traditional and mark a teenage girl’s passage to early childhood. In some areas this is a very formal event welcoming a young lady into another stage of maturity in her life and the society. Sweet sixteens can range from modest parties at home with close family and friends to a large affair with a hired DJ, make up, hair styling, expensive gowns and big venues. With big venues comes extravagant decorations like balloons, centerpieces, and flowers. Sweet sixteens are also very colorful with up lighting, pin spot lighting, and gobo projections on dance floor with the name of the birthday girl. Hispanic culture also has a similar tradition what is called a Quinceanera which also is a big event for a young lady for their fifteenth birthday welcoming her from childhood to womanhood. Other parts of the world like Brazil the celebration is called Festa De Debutantes, in French Caribbean and French Guiana it is called Fete Des Quince Ans. United Kingdom also have comparable parties called Debutante Balls no matter what the culture or tradition these parties all have the same meaning and mark an important day in a young lady’s life.
