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?
By Hannah from Unicoi, TN
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. :)
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)
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!
Another idea is to provide some ice cream and lots of fun toppings and everyone makes their own "Signature Ice Cream".
I am turning 15 on October 1st, but I have no idea what to do for my birthday which doesn't involve a massive party. I live in England so this time of year it gets pretty chilly, so no camping. I would like to do something fun, but I did bowling last year and cinema the year before. I would like some new and fun ideas please.
I'm turning 15 soon and I really want to have the greatest party ever. I want a party that most teens are interested in, nothing too big but nothing too small. But I have no idea what to do. I really need some ideas. What should I do?
Karaoke parties are a hit with both sexes. Make sure there is plenty of food too.
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. :)
I'm betting, Tracy, that more than anything she would love to spend a day with you. Just think of the fun and anticipation you could both enjoy planning things to do together (the planning and imagining being a big part of the treat).
How about a luncheon out, with either shopping for a birthday gift (like clothes) or a movie or a trip to someplace that she might like such as an art gallery or a museum or a zoo. You might go just the two of you, or you might bring along one of her friends, or perhaps a girls day with your mom. Another idea is to do a spa day or go for a mani-pedi, the two of you. If money is a problem, you could go online and find out how to do things like masks and pedicures at home, and have an at home spa day.
For my 14th I went to a buffet restaurant with close friends, which was great because it was a time that we could celerbrate but it didn't feel like a party! Any restaurants a brill (it was also cool because no parents were ther so it felt very sopisticated) Hope this helps!
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!
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?
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.
What about a bowling party? Both genders would like that.
It's your birthday. What do YOU like to do? And make a party around your preferences. For instance, if you like to cook, hold a pizza party (where everyone makes their own with toppings you all prepare / slice). If you love music and dancing, ask everyone to bring their favourites and clean space in your house for people to dance. You get the idea ....
Do some discreet asking among your friends to find out what sort of activities appeal to them. Then you could select one or two and make a group booking. Or you could go for something completely out of the usual - paintballing, orienteering, quad bike racing - these are just ideas to set you thinking outside of the box!
what about going to the mall or just girls day out its pretty fun
what about the mall
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?
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?
My birthday is coming up in a month or so (August 8th) and I can't decide if I want to have a party or not, and if so what kind. I like video games and youtube and stuff, kind of nerdy. I don't want anything really girly, and I know I don't want it to be huge, maybe just a few of my close friends. Recently I've had issues with some of my close, or who I thought to be close, friends so I'm hesitant to even do anything. Ideas?
Hey I'm going through the same thing. The only thing different is that my birthday is august 10th.
You go out for a movie with your close friends, that would be equally fun and a kinda party. take your family with u
If she is turning 15 it doesn't matter what she do just make sure she have the best party ever because you only turn 15 once!!!

Girl I feel you. There are so many snakes in my life, but keep going. As for the party, wanted seems like a fun plan with your close girl and guy friends.
You should have a sleep over filled with movies and FOOD!!!!! its a easy and fun birthday idea. You can invite some CLOSE friends and perhaps have a bonfire or late night swim if you have a pool. In the morning you can all go out or make your own breakfast at. Its a really great way to bond and to have a great birthday. Hope this helps!
My 15th birthday is September 5th, 2016. I have no idea on what I should do. I want to have something big, but not too expensive. Do you have any ideas on what I should do for my 15th birthday?
Hey, for my friends 15th birthday we went camping overnight, but she could only take limited numbers. however, it was cheap and amazing fun.
You can do a pool party with all of your friends.

My birthday is coming up on the 20th of June, but I would like to have my party earlier and send invites out in about a week. I would like to have a unique party, something different from what everyone else always has. I'm inviting around 20 friends, both guys and girls. Because it is such a large number, I will have to have a local party. I know that I would like the second half to be just all of us eating and sitting at a table, doing the cake, etc., but I would like to do an activity for the first half. I was originally thinking movies, but the movies are so often done for birthday parties. My budget is around $350 maximum. I would like an activity in which we are able to talk and be together the whole time, but any suggestions are welcome. Please help me!
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.
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.
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.
My best friend and I are turning 15 soon and have the same birthday so we want to have a joint birthday party, but we don't know what to do. Anyone have any ideas?

A search for "teen birthday party ideas" will produce many sites with lots of great ideas and themes.
My birthday is in less than a week. I'm only inviting my 2 best friends as I'm only 15 and I don't want anything big. I have no idea where to go or what to do. Please help me!
I would say why don't you go to the cinema or go ice skating for the day and then go back home after you have done a bit of shopping. Then order a pizza in and watch movies together so its cute and cuddley :) xx
My 15th birthday is in July and I'm a girl. I have no idea what to do. I can't do anything at my apartment because it's too small and crowded. I can't go to the spa or anything like that because my dad wouldn't let me. The only other option is to go out. But I don't know where we should go and what we should do there.
I'm going to be having my 15th birthday party in mid July. It's not a quinceañera just something more simple. I bought my dress; it's short lace sparkly black and beige. The problem is that I don't know what decor and centerpieces would match because I don't want everything to be black and gold. I was thinking to add some pink, but idk if that would look good. Please help! The party is for about 70 people.
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!
I'm turning 15 and my birthday falls on Easter. Any ideas?
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!
My birthday is on February 5th, in 12 days, and I really don't know what to do! Can anyone help me? I'm a tomboy, my fav color is blue, and I like sports. Plz help! All ideas are greatly appreciated.
Near my house, there's a place where you can schedule a party and they'll provide the food while you go to an indoor sports arena thingie (basketball and a field) and play lacrosse, basketball, organized fun games, soccer, etc. Maybe you could do that. Or you and your friends could just hang out at your house. If you have a pool, you can invite people over for a pool party.
Hey sorry I know its late! I don't know where you live, but reasonably near me there is a huge trampoline park, and a slightly smaller one even closer! these are so fun with friends, and you don't have to have any experience. They are often relatively cheap and they normally do birthday deals
Do a superhero themed party

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?
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.
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.
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?
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?
My 15th birthday is in July and I don't know what to do for a party. Does anyone have any ideas? I'm a girl and I either want to have a small party of like max 10 people or a bigger one. Thanks for the help.
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 am turning 15 next week on Monday in October. I have multiple friends and I don't know what to do for my birthday.
