My 17th birthday is March 17 next year, on a Friday. I just don't know what to do. It's also my golden birthday. I had a hotel already and rented out a hall. I was kind of thinking of a bowling party or a photoshoot because I like taking pictures. I don't have that many friends. Any ideas?

Have a 17 themed party. Invite your friends to see "The Edge of Seventeen". Have them come back to your house to make their own pizzas. Have 17 toppings: mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, mushrooms, green pepper, yellow pepper, red pepper, orange pepper, tomato, onion, olives, meatballs, eggplant, chicken, pepperoni, ziti, and mini ravioli. You could have your friends take 17 pictures and use an app to make a collage.

Why not find a Mary Kay representative to come in and do facials/make up for you and your friends? Have someone else take BFF pictures, and then do some type of mini scrapbook/craft idea with the pictures? There's a couple of perfect CRICUT cartridges, that can provide you with super inexpensive designs for your albums. There's a Teenage Paper Dolls cartridge, and other fashion type! Happy Birthday in advance, and have fun! Respond back if you need help planning :)

My birthday is in January and I'm wanting to do something fun, but I have a friend that is in a wheelchair and I would like to do something she could do too. I don't really want to go to a restaurant again because we have done that for the past 3 years so I'm wanting to do something different. I may be inviting a lot of people too, at least 8 friends and a lot of family, but they all won't come so I don't want anything super expensive. Any ideas?

I still don't know what I would like to do for my 17th birthday. All I know is that it will have to be on a Sunday as most of my friends now have jobs on Saturday. It can't be too expensive as both my friends and I are strapped for cash. I am open to any suggestions. Thanks.

On my sister's last birthday, she made a list of new things she wanted to do / try: one item for every year. Why not ask your friends to help you with a list of your own, then do one of those things with them to celebrate your b'day? No item need be expensive or complicated, could be as easy as a one-mile hike or taking a jewellery-making class.

Alternatively, what are the things you love to do with your friends? Pick one and do a few things to make it special? For instance, if you love to have a meal with them, why not make the meal? If you all love getting together just to hang out, why not get dressed up and drink soft drinks from wine glasses? Could be the start of a fun tradition for all of you?

Happy Birthday!

I'm turning 17 December 5 and I don't know what I should do. I want to do a dance party, but my grandma doesn't like the same music I like and my mom doesn't like a lot of people to be at her house. Mom wants to take me to a restaurant, but I don't know which one sings happy birthday and gives you a free desert. I'm going to ask short questions. I'm going to number them and I hope someone can answer them.


1. What restaurant throws you a party?
2. Where can I have a dance party?
3. What kind of electronics have certain songs you can play outside out loud?
4. What's something fun I could do that's not only for kids?
5. How many friends should I have at my party?
6. How to get my family to let me invite my crush to my party?
7. How to not be sad when my birthday party is over?
8. How to talk my grandma into getting me a car? (I don't have a driver's license.)
9. How to celebrate my birthday the whole entire day?

Well that's all the questions I can think of. Another thing, I know I'm posting this early I just can't wait till my birthday comes.

I will answer a few of your questions. First, just about any restaurant you go to will give you a cupcake and have the wait staff sing happy birthday to you if they know it is your birthday. You can always have someone phone ahead and check if this is something that the restaurant will do.

I do not know what sort of party you are expecting, but perhaps you could have a restaurant meal with your family, and then have a group of friends over for a party. A house party does not need to be an elaborate affair, and even if you have large house and talk your parents into hosting a dance party, I don't think you should have more than 20 guests. If that is not a possibility, perhaps you could do something like have a bowling party, swim party, skating party etc, followed by food and cake. It should be easy enough to invite your crush if you are inviting a large group of friends. When my sons were teens, if the party involved a big expense, such as paintball, the guests paid for that themselves.

I think it is rather unreasonable to expect your grandmother to get you a car. Concentrate on getting your drivers' license first, and perhaps a job which will enable you to save money to buy your own car.

You will have many more birthdays in your life. Each one does not need to be more dazzling and wonderful than the previous one. Enjoy the day, and focus on setting goals that will enrich your life, like learning to drive.

My 17th birthday is coming up on December 14th. Each year I throw memorable and fun parties. Last year I threw a masquerade party for my 16th. I want to keep it home, but I have no idea what I should do. I could do a movie night, but I do those anyways and it is not as lit. Please send help, I'm so stressed!

I'm turning 17 on June 27 and my mom decided it would be totally OK if she were to host a baby shower on the same day. A baby shower that she is not going to be here for.
I am sad and angry, but the baby shower is for someone I love a lot. I have no idea what to do. And if my mom is not going to be here for the baby shower that means she won't be here for my birthday. Do I talk to her about it or just leave it be?

AnswerWas this helpful?Helpful? Yes
May 11, 20151 found this helpful

I can see why you'd be upset. Your mom didn't even talk with you about this or whether or not you thought it was okay. Certainly someone else could have hosted the baby shower, or she could have chosen a different day.

The important thing is that you talk to your mother about this and how it made you feel.

Omg that's my birthday too, wow so amazing. Here are few ideas I had of my own:

1. Go skating( good ole skating just brings everyone together, you get to watch your friends and family fall and dance and eat and just enjoy themselves)

2. Bowling

3. Go eat out at favourite restaurant(it's that one special day to eat whatever you like and also it will give you and friends to communicate and enjoy yourselves)

4. Throw a party(you can invite how ever many people you want and u can manage your own budget since it'd your party)

5. Go to Dave and Busters( perfect place to show your fun side and win awesome prizes, also perfect to compete and have fun with friends)

6. Go to movies ( perfect opportunity to catch up on new movies, and also hang with friends)

8. Go shopping( you'll never get too old for clothes)

You can do all these with friends and under a cheap budget

When my kids were about 17, all their friends used to hang here all weekend. They made pizza buns, fudge, and milk shakes...watched movies, played video games, and put crazy make up on the people who fell asleep.

I turn 17 in November 2015. This my first time planning a party. I don't know what drinks I should give out, since most of my friends are drinkers. I wanted to hand out soda, but I'm stuck on this one; please help.

When you say most of your friends are drinkers, that indicates they drink alcohol. I am sure you didn't mean that. But it did give me a thought that might be fun. There are a bunch of "virgin" drink recipes out there. Here is a link to some of them.

http://www.tabl  3da-d3a63074198c

If your parents okay it, it might be fun to have a "mock cocktail" party. This is not to promote how cool it is to drink, before anyone gives me a lecture. But it might be a way to taste what is out there in a fun, safe way.
