Inexpensive Teenage Birthday Invitations Cards for Teen Party Celebrations
Many mothers are at their wits end when it comes to planning a teenager birthday party. This particular age group is notoriously hard to please and an over consumption of television programs and computer games have added to this.
Planning a teen birthday party is different to planning a party for a younger child. For a start it is not always easy to get your teen to talk about any interests they may have and so using a theme is not as clear-cut as it was in the past. Another thing you should bear in mind when planning a teen birthday party is whether they are young teens or older teens.
Some teenage birthday party themes that work well are based around popular TV programs or a book or movie character. One theme that some mothers have used and which proved to be a popular theme for a teenager birthday party is a detective theme. This theme works well when it works with the traditional who done it, murder mysteries such as those written by Agatha Christie.
When you order personalized teen birthday party invitations, you can include in the custom text that the teen birthday party guests dress up in some way so that they represent different characters in a story. Before the guests arrive you can ensure that the clues to the mystery are hidden in different areas of the house. Once guests arrive at a detective teen birthday party then you can start the story off and send them away to look for the clues. You can choose whether food should be served before the search gets going or after the ‘mystery’ has been solved. Nibbles and other finger foods are often popular with teens as they prefer to pick at things over a period of time – even when they are searching for clues perhaps?
If you are holding a teen birthday party during the summer then perhaps a beach party would be a good idea although you would need to ensure that is well chaperoned – beach parties that get out of hand can be dangerous. A teenage birthday party on the beach could include some beach games and perhaps a BBQ followed by some fireworks and a bonfire. If you don’t have a beach nearby, you can use the same theme for a teen pool birthday party. You could always get some sand delivered which could be put down near the pool or in a specific area of the backyard.
Many mothers are at their wits end when it comes to planning a teenager birthday party. This particular age group is notoriously hard to please and an over consumption of television programs and computer games have added to this. However, these can also provide ideas for a particular theme, perhaps based on a TV reality show such as Survivor or American Idle star. You might be able to get the teen birthday party guests to dress for a particular part at this type of teenager party – and they are sure to enjoy an evening of fun and games based around this.
Trying to keep secrets from a teenager is not an easy task and you will probably need some outside help if you intend holding a teen surprise birthday party. It is a good idea to enlist the help of your teenager’s friends if you want to provide something that will please them all. Whatever you decide, it is probably easier to keep quiet about a teenager surprise birthday party if you hire somewhere for the party to take place.
Here are some helpful hints when planning and organizing for a teen birthday party:
* Don't make it a surprise party unless you know that your teen will not feel intimidated by it. Teens fear that if the parents do something embarrassing and spoil their image so they want to be involved.
* Make the central theme of the party ‘food’ since boys, at this age, generally are always hungry at this age.
* Remember the '4-W' decisions: What, Where, When, Whom. Always let your teenager make these choices.
* Keep you distance at the party since teens are often embarrassed by their parents and their funny, old-fashioned ways. However, be sure and not leave entirely unless you want to run the risk of your house resembling a riot area.
* Since it is your teen’s birthday, easy up on the rules a wee bit so he thinks the day is special. Allow the music to be a bit loud and hope your neighbors understand.
