I am having a 13th birthday in September. I am having it at a local hall and, of course, it's a dance party but I don't know what else to do. What if they get bored of just dancing and this party has to be PERFECT. I was thinking of doing a mini fashion show during the party but I don't know if people will like that. I need to know what to do! Please help!

I just turned 13 and i had this party and it was "camper sheek". I just had 13 of my friends over and spent the night making smores, telling secrets and ghost stories. I totally recommend that! (06/15/2006)
A Hollywood party sounds fun. Have everyone dress as glamorously as possible or even as their favorite media star. A "red carpet" would be nice to step out of the limo onto. Your parents could take lots of flash pictures as "stars" walk the red carpet. Movie sound track music would be good. How about trays of fancy finger-food and bubbly soft-drinks in plastic stemware. You could have a parent tape interviews and video everyone. Karaoke (sorry about spelling) would be fun too. Hope these ideas help. (06/21/2006)
Well my B-day is on july 4th so I thought it would be fun to have fireworks and marshmallows. I also know all my friends like movies and if your watching a movie it goes over well with everyone. Also, you have to make sure you have music and food in case your just sitting and decide to dance or just talk. Trust me, I've had parties like that all the time and it's never boring. (06/24/2006)
I'm tuning 13 on july 26th and I'm really excited! I'm going to invite 5 of my closest friends and we are going to have all colored lights hanging in my basement. We are going to blast music, watch movies, have makeovers and tie die pillow cases. We will also order pizza and eat cake. All my friends are really excited and I suggest you try something like it.
Ok listen everyone do not freak out! Remember most of the people you are inviting for your big thirteen are coming for YOU not the party! Listen there are some very basic games to play like...
Motor mouth and other stuff! I suggest you start with a little soft music. You have a quiet room with no music so that people who wanna take a break from the dance floor can chill out, eat and play some board games or cards in that room. Remember IF POSSIBLE: little drinks with umbrellas are a must because they so cute! more fun things to do are maybe having them bring there swimsuits and have a water balloon fight! you could probably have karaoke and an american idol thing. just remember most of your guests are there for YOU not the PARTY.

Why not try a pinata full with candy. They are great fun, decorative and the candy is nice. (07/31/2006)
Maria, the limo is a great idea but i don't think that the boys would like the fashion show. They would probably get bored and leave but if you get a good DJ, crank up the tunes, and have good food and drinks then you should be fine! (08/14/2006)
i am having a 13th party, it is joint party with one of my friends. We are going to have a disco with a pinata and a dance competition. Then I will have a sleep-over. (09/06/2006)
You could have a black and white birthday party. Have the girls dress up all formal and have the guys in kakis and a white shirt. Kinda formal but if you have a lot of dancing and great food it should be a blast!
I'm am just doing a cake and Ice cream party that my friend Jon and I are doing at my church youth group then I'm going to have my 2 best friends come over and we'll dress up then go out for a night on the town. You guys have awesome Ideas. Thanks (10/25/2006)
