Perfect Birthday Party Ideas For Teen GirlsPerfect Birthday Party Ideas For Teen Girls

Throwing a birthday party for your teenage daughter can seem like a daunting task. You may feel like your daughter is outgrowing birthday parties, just like she outgrew her love of playing dress-up and having tea parties. So, you may want to look past a roller skate or bowling party, and delve a little deeper. Even though she may roll your eyes at you, and do her best to convince you that she is "way to old" for whatever you might have in mind. Even though this may be the case, every girl loves to feel special and every girl loves to get presents. So, by choosing a great birthday party theme that is unique and fun, you are guaranteed to do both...minus the eye roll.

1) Perfect Make Over Party. This is a fabulous birthday party idea. Everyone knows someone who sells Mary Kay, Arbonne, or Avon make-up products. Enlist their help, and have them bring their goodies and host a how-to make-up party complete with facials and lessons on how to appropriately apply make-up. This is a great idea for younger teen girls who may be reaching that important make-up wearing milestone as a result of this birthday. You can usually hire a hair stylist for a few hours to come over and create some updo's, but this is only worth the cost if it's a smaller party and she will have plenty of time to do everyone. You can send out invitations that resemble a tube of lipstick or a compact, and you can go to a thrift store to find pretty robes and slippers (wash them, of course!) for the girls to get cozy in. You can also, serve healthy foods like cucumber finger sandwiches, green tea ice cream and this amazing green tea mixed drink (see recipe).

Green Tea With A Punch (Serves 4)


1 fresh pineapple - peeled, cored and cut into chunks
2 large green apples, washed and sliced
1 1/4 teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
1 cup brewed green tea, chilled
1 cup mango sorbet or crushed ice

Juice the pineapple, apples, and ginger in a juice machine. Mix the juice with the tea, and stir in the mango sorbet.

2) A Costume Party. This is a great idea, even if it isn't Halloween. To keep it from getting out of hand you might limit it to a certain type of costume party such as animal costumes or Renaissance costumes, whatever mirrors your daughter's interests. If you throw a Renaissance costume party you could create really formal looking invitations, and get some classical music. You might even consider learning a few Renaissance dances and teaching them to the kids. If you have an animal themed costume party, your invitations could resemble zoo cages and you could decorate with a circus type theme. Be sure to provide lots of "doggie treats" and "cat nip" to keep everyone's appetite at bay.

3) A Hollywood Premier Party. This would be a great party idea, especially for large group. Your invitations could resemble movie ticket stubs, and you can have everyone dress to the nines in their formal gowns and tuxes from past school dances. You can rent a "red carpet" and have "photographers" on hand to snap shots of each couple and "TV personalities" to interview each guest. Be sure to get the interviews on video, because that would be a great gift for your daughter. You could create "swag" bags to give away as party favors, and maybe even arrange for your daughter's favorite movie to play at a local theater.

4) A Karaoke Party. This is a fun, relaxing party for girls who just want to have fun. Keep everything laid back as possible, or you can go all-out and set up a stage and couple of café tables in your backyard. You can usually rent karaoke equipment or you could consider hiring a DJ with karaoke equipment for your event. Be sure to provide plenty of room for dancing, and your invitations could look like old records or a microphone. You can serve pizza or wings whatever relaxing, fun foods suits your event.

These are just a few ideas, but whatever you decide to do, be sure to get your daughter involved in whatever you decide to do. After all it is her birthday, and the more involved she is, the more likely she is to not only cooperate, but also have a great time. Every girl deserves to have a fun, memorable birthday party, and with a little bit of creativity you can make that happen.
