Whether you are planning a birthday party, a sweet 16 party, a Bar Mitzvah, etc., if it is a party for a teenager, you may end up having a tough time coming up with just the right idea for an awesome party they will love. After all, they are teenagers, and they seem to be into something different every other day. But, with the right planning, you can pull off a party that your teen and their friends will be talking about (in a good way) for many weeks to come.
Consider Your Teen’s Preferences
Give Yourself Time
- Dance Party – Teenage girls love to have dance parties, and there are a lot of boys who enjoy this type of party as well. To really make the party special, rent a hall or other venue, and decorate it to look like a real prom. Make sure that the guests dress accordingly, depending on the type of dance you host (formal, sock hop, rave, etc.).
- Spa Day – If you have a teenage daughter, you can be sure that she and her friends would absolutely love to be pampered during a spa day. Even if you can only afford to get them manis and pedis, they will love the experience, and they will also love showing off their lovely fingernails and toe nails.
- Movie Night – Boys and girls both love movie nights, and this is a great way to ensure they are having fun while being safe. You can choose to have the movie night at your home, or send the party goers to the theatre for a real movie night. If they are under 14, they may need to be chaperoned, and you will need to make sure that everyone has a ride home afterwards.
- Adventure Day – If your teen is athletic and enjoys extreme sports, why not plan an adventure-themed party for their big day? Ideas include rock climbing walls, skating, go-karts, paintball, laser tag, hiking, etc.
