Take the traditional Under the Sea theme to the next level and create a wondrous deep-sea adventure for your guests. A combination of contrasting colors on the walls and beautiful detailed additions for centerpieces will make your Sweet Sixteen a night to remember. Here are some great tips and suggestions to host the perfect Underwater Themed Sweet 16.
1) Uplighting is perfect for transforming a venue into a dramatic and magical underwater extravaganza!
Place blue and green uplights 5-10 feet apart around the perimeter of the room to wash the walls in color. Add depth to the room by incorporating different shades of blues and greens. You’ll just love how awesome you Under the Sea Themed Sweet 16 will look if you add splashes of fuchsia uplighting for contrast!
2) Gobo monogram lighting is also a great way to create an Under the Sea look.
Use pattern gobos to create bubbles on the walls or ceiling. It looks especially perfect when paired with aqua blue uplighting! Starfish or seashell patterns look fantastic on the dance floor. Don’t forget you can customize the design to put the name of this Sweet 16 princess in lights!
3) Tall glass centerpieces with white tulips tie in the ocean look together perfectly.
Tall pieces of coral and seashells make great alternatives to flower centerpieces. Fill glass vases with shells, water, and floating candles to incorporate a few ocean elements.
4) Highlight your centerpieces with pinspot lights to make the small details stand out!
Pin spots traditionally add a beautiful glow to your centerpieces or cake. Combined with bright orange coral in your centerpieces, this contrasting look will transport your guests to the deep wonders of the sea. Elegant white chair covers ensure the tables for your Under Water Themed Sweet Sixteen look perfect.
