Sweet Sixteen Yacht Party Your beautiful daughter’s “Sweet Sixteen” or “Quinceanera” will be the talk of the town when you charter a yacht for her special event. An exciting yacht party, thrown by Charter One Yachts, is the perfect way to celebrate and create memories that will last a lifetime. Because this day is an important milestone for your daughter, here are some unique tips for a sweet sixteen:

Create a Distinctive Theme: After you have made your decision to hold your daughter’s sweet sixteen party aboard a chartered yacht in South Florida, the party’s theme and décor should be your next consideration. Boat parties provide an atmosphere of style and grace; because of this, there are many themes that can be incorporated.  Possible party themes include White Chic, Masquerade, Diamonds and Denim, Black and White, Luau, Diamond Princess, Club Dance and Karaoke, and Nautical inspiration. Sticking with a classic or popular theme is a great way for both adults and kids to enjoy the event.

Consider Entertainment Options: There are numerous sweet sixteen ideas when it comes to entertainment. Securing a great DJ should be your first step. Parents should consult with the DJ and make him/her aware of the party theme, type of music your daughter prefers, and should also inquire how that particular DJ involves adults when it comes to music selection. Many DJ’s will occasionally include an adult favorite so the attending adults can get on the dance floor and have fun. Other options that both adults and kids enjoy is including a karaoke hour – belting out favorites had been a mainstay for people of all ages and lets everyone join in on the fun. Other entertainment ideas include hired dancers, performers, and characterture artists. To add an extra dose of fun, rent specialty lights, a fog machine or a chocolate fountain for guests.

Plan a Creative Menu: Throwing a sweet sixteen aboard a yacht allows for creative expression when it comes to customizing the menu. Menus should be teen-friendly and theme-conscious. Finger foods are ideal for party guests of all ages, allowing them to mingle while enjoying delicious fare. You can serve sliders, fruit skewers, chicken wings, mini-quiche, quesadillas, chips and dip, etc. If you decide to hold the event on a boat, you may want to incorporate seafood or sushi into your menu. Sushi rolls such as California rolls and Shrimp tempura are great teen selections and do not contain any raw food; chocolate dipped fortune cookies can also be a great side treat.
If seafood is not your daughter’s preference, consider menu themes such as a Mexican fiesta (taco bar, seven-layer dip, apple enchiladas), Hawaiian or beach-inspired (grilled meats, pineapple and ham pizza, ice cream bar), or Hollywood Gala style (prime rib, steak, potatoes, mini cheesecakes, etc.).

As your beautiful daughter begins her journey into adulthood, mark the day with an incredible celebration that friends and family will never forget. Combine sparkling ocean waters with a unique theme, creative menu and exciting entertainment for a sweet sixteen on a luxury yacht charter like no other.
