I really need some help. It's my 14th birthday in May and I don't know what to do. I need some ideas, I was thinking of hiring a hall and doing something in there, but I don't know what. I was thinking of having about 20 girls, but we only have about 100 pounds max to spend. Have you got any ideas? Thanks.

If your looking for something more exciting and different other than a sleepover and a girls night, then the first step you need to do in order to have a night that's stress free and memorable, is to invite only the people you feel won't be a drag on your night and won't bring you down. Invite the people you know will have fun with whatever you do.
If you don't want to spend a lot of money, then don't. Its easier than you think. What people don't remember is that this birthday party isn't for impressing people its for your birthday. It's your celebration and on this day you can do whatever you want.
An idea. Put together a play list of all your favorite, raving party music and play it. If no one gets up and dances don't worry, as least its not silent. Then have the normal food out; chips, whatever you think fits with the theme. If you really like a certain movie, like The Notebook, then base your theme on that and make everyone dress up like they are from the 40s, with dresses, hats, and bright red lipstick, and fancy jewelry.
If that's not your style and you want to be chill, then just hang with your friends, put together a nice dinner and pretend to be royalty with nice music in the back and act all polite. Then later that night put on crazy music and just jump around and dance. It's more fun than it sounds. Then everyone will feel comfortable around each other and see being silly and making a fool out of yourself in front of people isn't bad.
Just remember whatever someone might say like "this party is not fun" just be like "then why are you still here?" as long as your having fun don't let others drag you down, its your birthday. Don't put too much thought into your party, the theme or idea or whatever it might be will come to, and when it does it will be amazing. (03/15/2008)
If you are having a boy/girl party, but you are planning to not spend a lot of money you could have the party at your house and have a bonfire and play "manhunt" at night. You can also have a water balloon fight. It doesn't sound that much fun, but when you try it it is really fun because usually everyone participates in the games. Also, have a lot of food it gives everyone energy to play. (03/30/2008)
Try hiring a bouncy castle. Even at 14, the kids love it. (05/22/2008)
You should do a mall scavenger hunt. I went to a party last month and we had to go into all different stores with a partner and do specific things then take a picture of it. An example was that we had to wear the weirdest things like a blue floor length prom dress or get the signature of the guy working at the tuxedo store and ask him "Do we have to return the tuxedo when we're done?" Oh and you try not to see or talk to any other teams. It was so much fun. (05/27/2008)
You should do a carnival theme. (06/05/2008)
You should theme it on a prom, like all your mates should bring a guy with them or you could just have an almighty P.J party at your house pick out some great DVD s get your parents to rent a 15 or more and scare or laugh your self silly. Also do things like best snores, first asleep, best PJs, etc. (08/11/2008)
Cheap tickets to the theatre. The theatre is always fun. If it's your thing. (08/29/2008)

I have a great idea, you can do a murder mystery and everyone comes to your house dressed as there character in the murder and you have to solve it. When we did it we had a set of books and we turned off all the lights and it was really scary. (12/31/2008)
