A 'Spa' birthday party. Manicures and pedicures @ home don't cost much. A 'camp out' birthday party. 'Splash pad' party with water balloons. A 'talent show' might also be fun. A 'painting party' where each guest paints their own picture on a canvas to take home.

Take a few good girl friends to a local thrift store to look for really cool accessories or jewelry. You never know what you might find, and they are usually cheap to shop at. Ask your friends for their opinions if any of them have similar taste as you. You might find a shirt or a hoodie that you fall in love with. Or a neat belt or purse...who knows what you might find.


After, let your friends buy you a slice of pizza or an ice cream to celebrate. Later, I would hope your family will help you mark this milestone too !!!!!
Have fun and enjoy YOUR BIRTHDAY, as 17 will be years behind you before you even realize it. Happy B'day !!!!!!!!

You don't need a big budget to have fun. The main thing is to invite your best friends.

Here are some ideas for the party:

Joke Night. Everyone brings a joke to share with the group.

Dance Party. Everyone brings their favorite dance song and move.

Surprise Party. The element of surprise makes even an inexpensive party much more exciting.


Fun in the Park. Play flashlight tag, frisbee, or capture the flag.

Do crafts. Ask a crafty friend who is coming to the party to bring supplies and conduct a mini-class for the guests. Your friend will be pleased you ask for help and will want to show off his or her expertise.

Have a party at home with all your friends to help celebrate. It could be a costume party. Those are always fun for everyone!

Since funds are limited maybe it would be better to plan something that can be done at home.
Since we do not know where you live it is difficult to make suggestions.


Near the beach? Maybe a beach party with a small portable barbecue grill and hot dogs or burgers.
No beach? maybe this at home?
Pool party?

Perhaps you could contact your girlfriends and ask for 'suggestions' on what they think would be fun?
Seventeen is a great age - have fun - be safe.

Happy early birthday to you! You can do a movie night at home and have some friends over. For food it could be simple pizza party with finger foods (like snacks, chips).

You can have a small party at home with your friends. Most people are fine with pizza, pop, and cake (you can bake your own cake and pizza). Pull out some old board games or turn on a movie. You could also have a bring-you-own picnic in the park and bring a cake to share with your friends! Most parks allow small parties (less than 50 people) with no associated fee. Bring frisbees or nerf guns to play with!


Happy birthday! Hope it's a great one!
