A sweet 16 to many girls is like a segment of the MTV show, Sweet 16
but it doesn't need to be like this. Sometimes simple is more unforgettable than over the top (and frankly, way more affordable.). We had DD's 16th at my cousin's tea room with 6 girls and 6 adults. Four of these girls that have been together since DD was in pre-school. This is our Girl Scout troop. A group of friends that I hope will last long after they age out of the Scouting program. I reminded them after the toast what a special group of friends they are and that they have something rare that I hope they will work to preserve. They were certainly the perfect group to celebrate this special day.
