Teen Birthday Party Ideas

1. No parents

2. No parents!

3. Rent a limo

4. House party with lots of friends, music and games

5. Pop concert

6. A night club

7. Pizza, chinese takeaway and cake

8. Sleep over

So that's a whole lot of big teen birthday party ideas! The key is to plan, negotiate and compromise.

First decide how many friends to invite. It's inevitable that the list will end up longer than anticipated. Be sensible but remember that not every-one will be able to come.

Plan your happy birthday invitations, you could design them yourself on the computer. If you're planning theme for your party you could use this in the invites. Colour makes a good theme. Black and lime green or black and fusia pink work well teenage party themes
. You could ask every-one to dress in the party colours.

The next decision is a good venue. At home if it's big enough or a friends house.

I had a joint party when I was a teen, with my best school friend, we had it at her house, as there was more space than mine (and her parents were more liberal!)

Two other parties I remember well were - a camping party. This was held at some-one's house, but as they had a large back garden we all took our tents and camped over night. Also a posh party, it was held at a local hotel. All the boys wore black tie suits and the girls ball gowns.

If home isn't an option then see what local facilities there are. Sports or social clubs can often be a good venue, with a dance floor and a bar (selling soft drinks). Night clubs in our local town now organise teen nights, that would make a great venue for a happy birthday party.

Hiring a DJ should ensure the party goes with a swing. Dj's are a great way to get every-one involved. Ask him to encourage some audience participation with some fun dances such as the conga, limbo, the time warp etc.

Decorations add to the teen party themes. These can be age related for a 13th, 16th or 18th party. Theme or colour related. Don't forget the helium balloons, not only do they look great but they provide great entertainment later when people start talking like Donald Duck!

Entertainment Teens do tend to create their own entertainment. However you can plan to introduce some. Music of course, with karaoke and guitar hero. A good icebreaker is who's that baby Ask all the guests to bring a a photo of themselves when they were a baby. Put them on a wall or board and see if you can guess who is who! Would you consider hiring a bubble or smoke machine, either would add to a party atmosphere. click here for more teen birthday party games

Ensure there's enough adults around, but not too many, and keep a low profile!

I would make sure I removed anything valuable, breakable or sentimental to a safe place, just in case.

Party food can be fairly easy, snacks such as finger food or takeaway pizza.

Be relaxed about the end time, as late as you feel you can handle!
