Did you mean to say she doesn't want a party? I'm guessing no, but if you did mean to you may want to ask her why she doesn't want one. If you aren't opting for a surprise party ask her what she would like to do within reason. Maybe just have a big sleep over with several of her closest friends. Rent some movies and get pop corn and snacks. Or if you want to throw a surprise party you'd want to get a couple of her close friends involved to help with the guest list and details. This past year I was on a rather tight budget for my daughters bday and we had a big cook out and played limbo and I rented a cotton candy machine. The kids loved it and even though it wasn't extravagant everyone really enjoyed themselves. (All the grown ups liked the cotton candy as well!) I also got her a nice cake to go with her 'theme'. We were going to do water balloons and other stuff like that, but no one had extra clothes with them. This time of year probably isn't ideal for that unless you live in a warmer climate than I do. Party stores sell sweet 16 party decor and favors. You can go to the grocery store or Walmart and get a sweet 16 cake or get one with a car design since turning 16 comes with a drivers license and getting to begin driving. Another year when I had a tight budget we had a 'dance party'. I turned the living room into the dance floor and decorated with stuff from the party store with streamers and I hung CDs from the ceiling. I had CDs of her fav music and had it playing. I turned the kitchen table into the snack bar and made punch and had different snack foods.

I would check in with her friends to get their imput. Ask them about what she likes and wants. I think they will be a big help.
