Well, without knowing what she likes to do or how many people she is planning to invite, here are some ideas:
Chef Party: Have the kids make their own pizza, decorate their own cupcakes, or design their own sundaes.
I know that Dance, Dance Revolution is popular (if she has a Wii), as is Karaoke. You can buy inexpensive Karaoke CDs.

This woman threw an American Idol' slumber birthday party for her 11-year old for $66.00 : http://beingfrugal.net/frugal-tween-birthday-party/
For a spa birthday party or for party favors, know that Dollar Tree has lots of cute lotions, spa stuff (gloves, manicure and pedicure sets,nail polishes, etc.) for a dollar each.
Good luck! :)
