What should I do for my birthday this year. I am turning 15 and it is on May 3rd. I am mature for my age and am not sure what would be appropriate.
do you like horses? the Kentucky derby is Saturday the 6th. everyone could dress up with fancy hats and bow ties like at the derby.
It's my 15th birthday tomorrow, and my mum asked me where I wanna go. I have no clue. She suggested bowling, but I don't like bowling, so I'm not sure what to do. Help!
Is this a small party between your family? Or, with friends also?
How about go karting? Movies? Pool Party? Laser tag?
I'm turning 15 on the 3rd of May and I'm a twin, but neither of us have any idea on what we want to do. It also has to be something local as there will be 17 of us. Any ideas?
I love the Mexican theme above--- you could also make your own pinatas. So fun!
My girlfriend is turning 15 and I am planning a surprise party for her, but I don't know what to do. I'm really bad at planning parties. I need fun but inexpensive ideas for her party. I really want her to have a great birthday.
Awww...you sound like a good friend to invite her favorite friends to a party.
I don't know how shy she is but here are a few idea's..
I'd definitely make a big poster board with the title:
'Why you so special'
Then have little colored post it notes (Staples and others sell really cute ones!) and pens for friends to write their answers and stick them to the poster.
If you can get some pics of her as a little child (get the CUTEST ones so she isn't embarrassed) you can also post them around the room or on the table or make a sign that says Happy Birthday- You must have been a beautiful baby.
You can make a little quiz of questions and print multiple copies of it and play a little game with attendees.
The game would have a number of questions about your birthday girl and you'd ask them to answer them.
WHERE was I born?
What color eyes do I have?
What's my favorite song/singer/food/dessert/school subject/etc...
personalize it to her interests and hobbies (check her bedroom walls for idea's)
Be careful that the questions aren't too hard that NO ONE knows the answers!
Then every one stands up while you read off the first question.
Whoever gets the correct answer stays up and the incorrect sits down. Eventually only one person should be standing and they win some silly, funny prize like a paper doll of your birthday girl (tape her picture to a piece of stiffer cardboard and cut it out) or just give her them a yellow rose (which signifies FRIENDSHIP)
Or you can ask each friend to bring an index card with one memory of some fun time with your birthday girl OR how they met. They turn them in at the beginning of the party and you will read them aloud at the party and everyone will need to guess WHO WROTE IT.
Of course, her favorite music and possibly a lip sinc contest, a bunch of cheap watercolor trays and better watercolor paper for an artistic portrait painting....of the birthday girl or whatever is good for laughs too!
Lots of fun!
My 15th birthday is coming up in 2 weeks and I have only just started thinking about what I want to do. There are about 4 of my friends I'd like to invite, but none of them have the same interests as me. I'm a total bookworm and I love movies like 'Beauty and the Beast' and 'Alice in Wonderland'. I was going to do Wonderland themed, but I don't want a big or OTT party. Also, I have no idea how to make sure my friends don't get bored. We also have a pool and a pizza oven, but I had a pizza party for my 13th and all the same people came and it's autumn so it may be too cold for the pool as it isn't heated. We have a massive property and a huge house, and my dad won't be here at the time of the party so my younger siblings are able to stay in my mum's room with her for the night. Also we live far away from everyone so it has to be a sleepover or it isn't really worth it. Please help me!
Since it's four people, did you want to go to the movies together? Would they like to watch the movie. Beauty & The Best is trending right now for all ages!
Then you can go back and have a nice pizza party, chit chat, play board games, talk, watch movies and have a nice sleep over.
I am turning 15 on April 1st. I was wondering what I could do for it. It would be on a Saturday. No bowling cause my dad did not book it ahead of time.
Depending on where you live, weather permitting, food and fun at a park?
I'm turning 15 and my birthday falls on Easter. Any ideas?
It'd be fun to do an Easter Hunt! But did you want to do Easter related activities? Or a pool party? Movie party? Slumber party? Bowling!
Ok so I am turning 15 next month on April 26 and I have no idea what to do. I am a girly girl, but also sporty. I can't come up with any ideas to make my birthday fun. Can you please help me?
You can do bowling, indoor ice skating, Old fashioned rolling skating if your friends have them.
Have you ever tried horseback riding? If there is any facility near you bring just a few close friends.
Spa day with a few friends as well, if it's girls only.
Is there an obstacle course near where you live or a rock climbing wall? These would be good for both boys and girls.
I'm turning 15 and I've always struggled with thinking of themes and entertainment for my birthday parties. There will be both males and females at my party. What kind of thing could I do? By the way, my friends and I all attend an arts school, if that helps at all.
We're in Beaverton Oregon
I'm turning 15 soon and I have no clue on what to do. I'd like to invite 6-7 girls. And I would like to have it at my home. I liked the theme glow in the dark, but the thing with that is I don't know what to do at the actual party? Any ideas?
for my 15th birthday, my uncle rented a room for me and my friends at best western. we went to the movies right across the street, and stayed in the pool most of the night. Then we did each others make up cranked up the radio danced in our pajamas. it was a lot of fun. i think i had an amazing birthday that year.
I will be fifteen on November 1st and I want to do something cool for my birthday, but I don't know what to do. Can you give me some ideas?

I'm turning fifteen in August! I'm acually Mexican but, I am not having a quince, instead I'm having a party at home. So, movies, dance party, bonfire, and a nice but not fancy dinner. :)
I'm turning 15 on November the 20th this year. I want to have a birthday party for once. But the down side is that most of my friends have church on the weekends, but I want all my friends to be there so I need help. What should I do for my birthday? And when?
If your friends go to church, you may have to choose another day. Church time is family time, and their parents will probably not permit them to come to your party.
I'm turning 15 April 1st and have no idea what to do. I love dogs and horses and outdoors. And I want to do something with friends and family. I'm kinda tomboyish as well. I was thinking of inviting my whole youth group and other friends as well as their parents so it would need to be lots of people friendly. I would love it to be pet friendly as well. Maybe a sleepover after? Open to anything! Also nothing crazy expensive. Thanks!
How about hosting a party at a park where it is pet friendly or camp site and you call can sleep over there.
I need someone's help. My birthday is on March 27th. I'm a girl and I don't know what to do. I was thinking of celebrating either the weekend before or after. I can either have it at my house or go somewhere. I'm not sporty and I like baking and sort of shopping, but my besties aren't that girly either so not sure what to do.
I have a largish garden with a trampoline and a table tennis table in my log cabin. Also, I would like to have my besties and maybe one of my guy friends that I'm close to, but then I'm not sure which one of his friends to invite cause I don't want it to be just him and girls. I just really need help any sugestions at all will be much appreciative and helpful.
In addition to the trampoline, table tennis, music and dancing, why not add "make your own pizza?" If you'd make the dough and half bake it (individual sizes) before the party (it freezes well), you and your friends could slice and dice favourite toppings and even grate the cheese(s).
As to your male friend, why not ask him who he'd like to bring, if anyone, or if he'd be okay hanging with a bunch of girls?
My birthday was on December 12th and I have been 15 for 18 days and I'm planning on having my birthday party in January, but I don't know what kind of party I should have. Btw I am a girl, and I'm tired of having sleep overs, but I want to invite my best friends that are girls and I want to invite some guys from school too, sooo plz give me some ideas. I'm from North Texas.
Play Dictionary or Pictionary with teams competing against each other. Song titles charades would be fun, too. Serve hamburgers with lots of toppings and ice cream sundaes. Name that tune---playing only a few notes of favorite songs--- would also be great.
My birthday is the 12th of March, and I'm turning 15. I'm having my party the Saturday after. I'm sort of tomboyish, and I'm having it at my aunt's house. I have no idea what to do, or what to make my theme. I need something relatively cheap. I'll accept all ideas graciously! I play softball, and love the outdoors. I don't really want anything mainstream, but I'm still open to it, so put it please.
If you love softball, and your friends do as well, then have your party in a park, with a picnic lunch or dinner.
I am turning 15 on March 2nd and I do not know what do for a birthday party that is not expensive. I want to have it sometime around my birthday on the weekend, but it needs to be a flexible schedule because my sister works from 4-11 on Saturday and Sunday, as well as Friday. Could you please help if possible?
have a brunch time party.... yo could have a cupcake decorating contest... makeup session ..... or any crafts you all like... or make small blankets to give to cat shelters out of fleece and tie them ... Happy Biethday!!
I'm turning 15 in four months and I haven't even started planning. I'm a girl and I want a huge party, but still suitable and safe. I want boys and girls to come, but I'm shy at talking to guys. Please help me plan.
I would have a party with some athletic activity. This way, people are not sitting around awkwardly with painful silence. After the physical activity, have some great food, and you, and everyone else, will have plenty to talk about.
I'm turning 15 on the 15th of January which is in 13 days. I can't think of anything to do! I can't do anything that involves running because I sprained my foot really badly last month. There aren't any good movies out at the moment. It's gonna be raining on that day; so I can't do any beach stuff. I also don't own a pool because my back yard is really small. I was thinking of a sleepover, but I always have them and they always turn out really boring. I want to do something fun, but I'm all out of ideaS. :/ Can someone please help?
Rent a karaoke machine to sing songs that are popular with your friends. Have a painting party with you supplying paper, paints, brushes, after which an adult of your choosing judges the art work and awards prizes.
My younger sister's birthday is soon. I want to do something for her, but don't know what to do. She is turning 15 this year; her birthday is in March. She doesn't want to have a birthday party because she feels like she is too old for them. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
