Teen Party Ideas For Fun And Fabulous Teen Parties!Teen Party Ideas For Fun And Fabulous Teen Parties!

Coming up with teen party ideas can be a challenging task, to say the least. The days of throwing together a quick Barney party are long gone. So, roll up your sleeves, gird your loins, and get ready to sit down with your teen and figure out the "magical" theme that will bring a smile as big as the moon. Here are a few ideas to grease the shoot, so to speak.


Teens love to have their parties at night, so you might as well take advantage of the dark and host a glow-in-the-dark party. There is instant excitement when you escort your guests into a pitch-black room that is illuminated with phosphorescent party items to greet your guests. Decorate with lots of balloons, curling ribbons, and streamers that will glow under the black lights. Add some tablecloths, party ware, hats, glow sticks, and wall decor, that all have glow-in-the-dark designs. Replace all your light bulbs with black lights. Consider hanging old-fashioned strobe lights and disco balls for a super effect.


Since your teen is the star of this soiree, you might as well take advantage and roll out the red carpet. You can either visit a carpet liquidator for a red carpet remnant or create a red walkway using plastic red tablecloths. Glue or tape large silver stars along the walkway containing the guests' names. At the entrance, place a larger gold star containing the birthday teen's name. Require the guys to wear black suits or tuxedos and the girls to wear long formal wear. As everyone arrives, give them each a pair of black sunglasses, perfect for a group photo op. Also, you might consider giving the guys black top hats and the girls "diamond" tiaras, to create another great group photo op. Fill the walls with movie posters or posters of Hollywood's great stars and starlets.


Laser tag facilities usually offer special birthday party options from which you may choose. Laser Tag is a sport loosely associated with tag and hide and seek. It is played in a high-tech environment. Usually you will find theme arenas with special effects like fog, laser beams, mazes, and pulse-pumping music. The great thing about a laser tag party is that it takes everyone away from your home for the main event. The facility will clean-up as part of the package; all you need to do is show up! If you want to extend the party, opt for a pizza lunch or dinner, or you can take all the teens out for Chinese, tacos, or whatever the birthday teen desires.

Although party planning with a teen may be a bit challenging, remember the payoff will all be worth it in the end. When you see that smile on your teen's face on their special day, it will have all been worth it! Alas, another special memory created.
