A sweet sixteen is a coming of age party celebrating a girl's sixteenth birthday, primarily in the United States and Canada. The term "sweet" is indicative of the innocence and virginity of the girl before she becomes a woman. It is the age of consent in many states, hence it is viewed by many adolescents as an important milestone. Turning 16 is also a time to obtain a driving license. If you bought your daughter a car for her 16th birthday then a fun idea would be to order a bouquet of flowers in a Ford Pickup Truck bouquet and hide the keys to her car in the flowers! Other sweet 16 floral choices are floral arrangements shaped like birthday cakes or our Birthday Present Perfect flower collection which features fresh flowers in cute gift boxes wrapped in tissue paper.
