Do you have a teenage girl who is too old for a small children’s party? Stuck for ideas for the birthday party? Party ideas for teens are sometimes much harder to find than younger children, since teens are much more demanding. Teens also want to plan their own birthday celebrations, so you should meet them halfway in whatever decision you make.
It is often considered that teen parties are night parties when parents are absent. But this is not really the case. Sure, this happens, but these birthday parties are not planned. Therefore, it is time to erase from your mind the bad image of teen parties and discover how to plan the best birthday party for your teenager.
There are many themed parties for teenagers like:
High school graduation party
American Idol Party
Fear Factor Party
American Idol Party
And, of course, the important Sweet 16!
Too many to decide? Choosing a theme depends on the age and tastes of your teenager. Once you have a party idea, you should keep everything within that theme.
Begin by setting a date and time for the party and agree on a guest list with your teen. This may be the cause of an argument, but be reasonable and depend on the type of party agreement on guest numbers. A spa party would obviously require much less quantity than a barbecue party.
Invitations and decorations can be bought or made at home to match the idea of the chosen party. For example, a spa party for teenagers would involve pretty pink and relaxing invitations. A relaxation room with candles and lots of pampering products would be all you need for a great party.
The next one is food. What will you serve? Teenage food varies from buffet meals to Chinese food. Again, the type of food depends on the theme of the party. Delicious sandwiches, salad and bottled water for a spa party, to take to a slumber party and hot dogs and hamburgers for a barbecue party.
The ideas of the teenage party do not stop there. What about the activities and favors?
Discs, pampering, quizzes and movies are great activities. While CDs, makeup, hair accessories, diaries, perfumes and photo frames are great favors.
Just remember that when planning ideas for teens, (unless it’s a surprise party) involve your teen in planning. The last thing you want is a cranky teenager on the big day!
