- 1 large glass vase


- 4 small vases or glasses

Light up your candles and sit the large vase in the middle, with the small ones on each side of it. And there’s your sweet 16 centerpiece!

The Best Ways To Make A Delicious Candy Centerpiece

Putting several large lollipops in a vase filled with smaller candies is an excellent centerpiece. This is also great for a candy party theme, and for everyone to snack on.You can also make dishes of mixed candies such as:


- Jellybeans


- Cinnamon hearts


-  Skittles


- Colorful wrapped chocolates


Put them centerpiece on a glass mirror or a white cloth,sprinkling colorful confetti around the piece.


You can hold your centerpieces in large candy dishes or vases, but make sure that each centerpiece is very bright and colorful.

Make Your Own Fabulous Candle Centerpiece


Floating white candles are beautiful centerpieces for formal parties. You can put food coloring in the water to change its color to your party theme, and to make it unique.


Put floating candles in a large bowl with floating flower petals is also great for a centerpiece. Another great idea is to buy a few glass vases, and fill them up about a third with small fashionable stones or seashells. Pour water on top of the shells or stones and place flower petals in the water. Flower petals float and are safe to use near lit candles.

Next, stick a floating white candle in each vase and place the vase on top of a glass mirror or a doily. Place a few seashells or  river stones around your mirror or doily.


Immitation candles can also wor for these centerpieces if you are worried about the candles actually being lit. You can find battery operated candles at craft stores and most bargain stores.

Sweet 16 Tiara Centerpiece

Place a sweet 16 tiara in the center of every table, on top of a small mirror. The tierra will reflect and give a cool effect to every table. Tiaras are a big symbol to the sweet 16 experience. Using one as a centerpiece for each table would be a great way to show that this is a sweet 16 party!

Effortless Balloon Centerpieces


Purchase vases and several balloons attached to sticks. Make sure that the balloons match you parties color theme. Bundle the balloons together in each vase and use them as centerpieces! This is a great sweet 16 centerpiece idea that is cool and very inexpensive.


I would recommend haing a balloon centerpiece at a table where guests are not sitting, ie. a birthday present table or uffet table. The standing balloons may make it hard for friends to see each other at a dinner or social table setting.
