Ideas For My 17th Birthday

I am trying to plan my 17th birthday. It's crazily hard! I know who I am inviting but I have NO idea what to do! I live in a small place, not much to do. I didn't have a 16th, so i want to make this my sweet 16! I am stuck, and don't know what to do!




Food and Music

GREAT MUSIC and plenty of GREAT FOOD! That is what I would build your party around. If you are inviting boys and girls and the weather is right in your area, and you have an appropriate place to do it, a bonfire might be fun. Don't sweat it - your friends will have fun just being around to help you celebrate! Just have some good music ready and maybe ask your friends to bring some of their favorite CDs. I would include tons of great "finger food" - nothing that requires a fork to eat! You could also do cupcakes instead of a regular birthday cake. Just relax and enjoy your Sweet Seventeen!

Sundae Party

My daughter just celebrated her birthday with a "Create your own ice cream sundae" party. We bought two gallons of vanilla ice cream, lots of different toppings, and the girls had fun. You don't have to buy the toppings -- there are plenty of recipes on the net, but we ran out of prep time. They played favorite music and a couple of board games. And of course had birthday cake. I hope you have a good birthday! (02/02/2005)

Theme Party

You might want to check out the party planner template in MS Word on your computer. I say have a luau or a fun theme, whatever you and your friends are into. Like casino night, Goth or Ski party... Have fun! Check out Oriental Traders for props or novelties. (02/17/2005)

"Live Like Your a Rockstar"

For my 16th birthday I had a "Live Like Your a Rockstar" party. Have each of your guests dress as rock stars and bring a CD or DVD of their favorite artist. Then just put the CDs on shuffle and get started. We actually hooked up a mike so we could embarrass ourselves further by singing as the star we were dressed as. We had a blast though and everyone I invited the next year came and their friends asked if they could come too. Good luck and Happy Birthday! (02/23/2005)

Dinner, Clubbing and a Sleepover

You can have your 4 best friends come over and go out to eat, then go out to the club or some fun facility. Then spend the night at your house and watch movies and eat popcorn. (03/24/2005)


Tent Party

If you have a big back yard, then you can get all your best buds round and get the old camping tents out and have your very own tent party! Fun even when it's your big 17th!

Musical Chairs

I really enjoy getting all my mates round and playing pass the parcel and musical chairs. I did this for my 17th and was thinking about doing this for my 18th but didn't get round to doing it! I really recommend it! Have fun! (12/06/2005)
