Teen Birthday Party Themes Fun birthday party ideas for teenagers Teenagers love nothing more then friends, food and shopping. Any combination of these will make for a great teen party! Pool Party Fun swimming pool party theme ideas - complete with invitation, decoration, games, party favor and activity ideas for teen pool parties. Mystery Dinner - Fun and crazy birthday idea for teens. The teens are served dinner - but don't know what they have ordered until the food arrives. Crazy fun and teens love it!
Hotel Shopping Stay - Pick a large hotel next to or adjacent to a large mall. (We use our bonus hotel points so the rooms are free). Give the girls, usually 2-3 plus the birthday girl, a little money each and let them shop the mall.
Eat a birthday dinner at the mall if there is a nice restaurant and swim in the hotel pool afterward. You can also play mall scavenger hunts for extra fun!
One Color Party - Easy and fun birthday party theme! Pick one color and make everything in shades of that color. If lime green is the color then make the invitations on lime paper with dark lime writing and envelopes. Tell everyone in the invitation that they are to wear only lime green. Hats, noisemakers, plates, napkins, cake, utensils, decorations, balloons, crepe paper, gift bags, prizes, food - EVERYTHING Lime green! Simple, but the kids will always remember it!
Restaurant - Take them to a nice restaurant or for more fun a Japanese steakhouse where they cook the food in front of you, or reserve a private room in the restaurant.
Music Videos - Borrow several video cameras and let the kids make crazy videos of themselves dancing, singing to karaoke or just being themselves! Edit and make a DVD for each guest.
Chocolate fountain - Simple idea, but teenagers love it! Set out long toothpicks and bowls of strawberries, marshmallows, fruit, graham crackers, Twinkies (our favorite!), rice krispie treats or anything that can be dipped in chocolate (which is pretty much everything!) This is fun, festive and a real treat! Just add music and dancing.
