17 Year Old Birthday Party Ideas?

April 8, 2008

17 Year Old Birthday PartyI'm turning 17 in a couple of weeks and I have no clue what to do with friends. My parents are taking me to Disney World (don't live in FL though), so I'm not going to do a big party. I'm not sure whether I want to do co-ed or just girls. I'd like to do something a little more special than just going out to eat. But at the same time, I'm not looking for something big or with a lot of planning. Any thoughts? Thanks so much!

My son (16) just went to a birthday party at The Olive Garden. They went afterschool and had an early dinner. I think there were 10 of them and they each paid for themselves (they only did salad and breadsticks). He said it was cool to do something "grown up".

Happy Birthday, Rachel! If you don't want to do a big party, stick with just the girls. If you just want to do something silly/fun/goofy... think about:
Minature golf
Bowling party
Roller skating party
Trip to the zoo
Paint ball games
Slumber party
Go-Kart racing
Backyard Croquet or Badminton party
T-shirt painting party
Pot-luck supper party
Picnic party in the park

Have fun, be safe, and say "Hi" to Mickey for me.

How about a plain old out door barbque? Or a cookout - no BBQ sauce required? You could do it in the backyard or the local park?

For my friend's birthday we chilled at her house for a bit then hung out at the mall, went to a movie & had a sleepover at her house. Loud music, dancing, and attempts at wrestling. It was a lot of fun.

You can have a party with just your most close friends. Can you do a slumber party and just have 1 or 2 friends over?

I am turning 17 in December and I want to throw a birthday bash! I was thinking of renting a banquet hall, but I want a theme which will help me get ideas. I am a girl. I have various and diverse interests. I am not a girly girl at all. I play basketball, but I don't think I want a basketball themed party. There will be a lot of people from my school.

Hi guys, my birthday is in two weeks (29th of March) and I want to have a party on that day. My mum does not want to spend much (probably only $30). What foods and games should I have? It will be guys and girls. No theme.
