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.

Instead of the hotel and hall, think fun. Have your guests come in formal or fancy dress, give them small cameras, and take them bowling and at least one other activity, the more the better. Have a competition to see who can come up with the prettiest/wackiest/most revealing photo. Retire to a friendly café for birthday cake and coffee and circulate your photos there for voting which is best. Have fun!

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?

Do you like bowling? That's always a fun group activity, and your wheelchair-bound friend can participate too -- they have metal ramps for them to launch the ball. Good luck, and hope you have lots of fun!

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 :)

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.

1. What restaurant throws you a party?

chills, macaroni grill, cheesecake factory, red lobster, olive garden, Arby's, buffalo wild wings, TGI Fridays

2. Where can I have a dance party?

Any venue or country club near you. Some restaurants rent out their basement as a place to have a dance party

3. What kind of electronics have certain songs you can play outside out loud?

You can get a bluetooth speaker from best buy or even amazon. I recommend a beats pill.

4. What's something fun I could do that's not only for kids?

Go to a trampoline place, go karting, I did laser tag with my friends this year and we are 16 and it was still really fun, mini golf, bonfire at night with s'mores. Since your birthday is in December you could go ice skating or even roller skating. Bowling.

5. How many friends should I have at my party?

depending on what your doing I'd say around 10 or less if you are taking them out to dinner.

6. How to get my family to let me invite my crush to my party?

Tell them that he's gay or that he has a girlfriend. If they know he's your crush tell them that he's close to you as a friend.

7. How to not be sad when my birthday party is over?

Keep yourself busy. School, hobbies, realize that now that you're 17 you can legally drive.

8. How to talk my grandma into getting me a car? (I don't have a driver's license.)

I really don't see the point in getting a car if you don't have your license unless you have your permit and you are on the way to getting your license. If that's the case, ask her nicely and tell her you'll do everything she needs you to do like chores or driving her places if need be.

9. How to celebrate my birthday the whole entire day?

3 or 4 of the suggestions from your 4th question and then dinner and a movie.

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

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.
