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. :)
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.
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!
Another idea is to provide some ice cream and lots of fun toppings and everyone makes their own "Signature Ice Cream".
My 15th birthday is coming up (female) and I don't know what to do. My house is too small to have a party with all my friends (boys and girls) and my parents don't want to spend a lot of money. Help!
Bowling is an activity that is affordable and appeals to both sexes. You can have cake and soda there too.
Just have everyone go to the mall together. I remember doing that for one of my friend's 14th birthdays. It was co-ed, it was free, it was super fun. It was about the company. You can just buy a huge pizza for everyone to share.
I am not sure where you live, but for me - I live in California! So it's still beach or pool season so you could have a party there! And the food would be easy chips, pizza, snack food and water/soda/Gatorade.
Other options could be, having a party at the park! Again with the easy snacks and pizza. Play board games at the park, activities/sports or find inspiration online especially Pinterest! You could craft your own decorations prior to your party.
But my all time favorite would have to be the bowling alley. It's inexpensive and you can check your local bowling alley place if they have any special or deals going on. Or, if you have a pool hall/arcade center that'll be fun too!
Here are a few 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
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?

You can do a pool party with all of your friends.

Why not get a piñata, have a BBQ, play lots of little kids games like you used to when you were little. E.g. Musical statues and so on that is what I did for my 15th (I am now 16). Have fun!
You can do laser tag, paint ball and maybe a movie.
I am turning 15 years old on June 4th and I don't know what to do. I love to do stuff with my friends and one of my friends lives in a different town so that is one reason I want to have a birthday party.

Why not chuck a birthday party that way your friend can come too? It could be a massive party with all your friends and you could even let them help you plan it since it is not that far away.
