Why not have an 80's era party. The girls can dress up with big hair, neon colors, fishnets, etc. and have a costume contest. Then you could turn a room into a dance floor with fog machines, bright balloons, and music from the 80's and now. Then you could finish it off with a movie from the 80's like Pretty in Pink. Hope you like the idea.

A tea party is great at this age. Have the girls dress up to include white gloves, undo hair, etc. and serve finger foods. Cake in the shape of a tea pot, and different flavors of tea to sample. White table cloths and soft music.


Include the moms. Later the girls can spend the night. It is really fun especially if the adults gather and it is a great time to get to know the parents that you don't know.

Go through these ideas in the archives with your daughter and see if anything sounds like fun. I see there is also a 13 years old party idea list. She may like something rather low key like a sleepover, pizza and movie night. If not, there are many ideas suggested. Have fun!

Hi, I have a daughter who is 11 years old and will be 12 in a few weeks! She is going on Holiday on her actual Birthday, so I was only going to do something small for her party! What we have decided to do is, go to our local beautician who has offered to give the girls makeovers and new hairstyles! After that we will head home and get some snacks in and play little mini games like, eating cream with maltesers of a plate without using your hands and trying to cut a bar of chocolate and eating it using a knife and fork before someone rolls a six on a dice then you will swap!


Then rent a movie out and watch that, and my daughter insisted on doing makeovers in the dark so they will do that before going to sleep, and the next morning they will chill out and go to town and do a bit of shopping where there I have secretly booked a limo to come and drive the girls about then take each one home! I know I said I was going for something small, but it's her twelfth and its her first Birthday she wont be with me for it! I hope this helped!
