My birthday is October 19th and I will be turning 14 so I don't want anything babyish, but I can't have a pool party because it will be too cold. Any ideas?
How about a hotel party? There will be an indoor pool, snacks, a gym and you will have your own room with your friends!
Hi,maybe if your having both boys and girls you could do something that would appeal to both genders: going to your nearest town to the cinema or theatre or (if you don't mind paying more for it) you could do indoor skydiving? I'm doing that for my 14th with guys and girls, hope this comes as useful advice? Have a good birthday!! X
U can try spa day and movies
I threw a party for my daughter,and what we did is a scavenger hunt. tied it in with holloween along with fear factor things. The girls had a ton of fun and still talk about it. the next year we did just a bunch of games tone of the last things we did was a fashion show catch was they had to only use foil it was a ton of fun. this year the girls are older so we are doing a surprise party i have planned a scavenger hunt but this one is different we will be diveded up in two groups and instead of doing around the neighborhood we will be driving the girls around ti do the hunt they will have to have photos and have them developed and be at the meeting place by a certain time after that we will go back to house where i have the deck set up as a disco party with lights and music just some ideas for u
I'm going paint balling? that could be cool or ice skating... it depends what your into
I'm turning 14 soon and I am stuck for party ideas. I'd only be inviting girls and I'd like to invite a lot of my friends. I don't think a disco would be good seeing as there are no boys. Any ideas?
I think you could go with disco - girls all like to dance. At 14, you would have trouble getting the boys to dance anyway. If that is what you would like, go for it!
Apples to Apples was played at our friends party and was really fun. Then, just have pizza and cake. Murder Mystery is another fun one.
High tea? You could have it at your house or out somewhere. Or you could o ice-skating, this is especially good if you go on one of those days when they have ice-skating discos.
I am turning 14 on August 21st and I have "no clue" on what to do. I am inviting 7 girls so, including me that's 8 people. I don't want to spend over $200 because during this time I have to go school shopping and that's a lot of money. I am not the type of girl that likes to have makeover parties or anything like that. So can you please help me?
The word clue in your post made me think you should do some sort of mystery party.
I believe they still sell mystery parties in a box. Everyone gets a role and is given ideas on how to dress. Most people get lines to read. The kit gives ideas on food to serve, etc. They are lots of fun! The kits are about $20 if I remember right. Look at a store that sells games. Better yet, call before you go. Have Fun! Happy birthday!
Go camping! Dress in fancy dress and pitch a tent, even in your garden if the parents won't let u go elsewhere. Get marshmallows, face paints, songs, campfire, have a blast!
I'm turning 14 in July and I have no ideas what to do apart from have a BBQ. Any other ideas which are better or is that OK?

I heard of a girls teenage party at the mall. It was turned into a scavenger hunt and picture taking. So each girl gets a camera (or can use their phone) and a scavenger hunt list with items from the stores. Just take pictures of the items with their faces.
At the end there is a finish line (chosen place at the mall) and the winner is the 1st person or team arriving. You can look at the pictures downloaded on a computer later or develop pictures later and send them with a thank you note. This is a cheap and easy birthday party.
You could do a lake party and BBQ
I know my birthday is still in 4 months, but I like to plan ahead. I wanted to have a sleepover, but my mom doesn't like the idea of 7 girls running around at 1 am. Then I thought of going to a hotel with some girls and my dad, but then I thought some people might not like the idea of them staying the night with a guy. So I thought about the mall and things like that, but it feels like it would go too fast. Any ideas where they could stay longer then a few hours yet not sleep~over?

How about a pizza, pajama movie night? They could show up late afternoon and be picked up late, say 10:30 or 11.
You should get tents in the back yard and just have your parents check up every once and a while... and if you can get someone to scare you guys unexpectedly even better.
When I was younger there was late night rock-n-bowl and lock-ins at the roller rink. Maybe your town has something like this that your parents would be okay with?
I'm turning 14 on the 14th of May, so it is not that far away and I need a birthday idea. I'm not really allowed one this year, but I might be moving schools at the end of this year so my parents are allowing it. It needs to be something non-expensive, but also super fun. My mum doesn't really like the whole shopping centre scavenger hunt thing. But she suggested horse riding, a great escape thing, bowling, or dinner and then a movie. She also said no sleepovers. So can anyone help me? If you can't think of any do you think any of the ones my mum suggested would be good?
P.S Where I live May is autumn so it's too cold for a pool party and I've already done ice skating so yeah please help.
Thanks TAESMLP xx
Well you could just go to the mall with you friends then see a movie and then have dinner with your family
Indoor (at-home) spa day with manis and pedis then do karaoke! I'm suggesting this because this was what I did for my 15th and it was such a blast.
My 14th birthday party is combined with my best friend and it is in 2 months. We have about 50 people coming and it is a Scouts party because we do scouts. We have lots of scouts coming and we would like to know a really cheap way for our food and decorations. Thank you.
Lots of balloons and ribbon from the dollar store/ paper plates, cups and napkins from walmart - hot dogs, chips, and a birthday cake from a discount grocery store, like Costco.
My birthday is in early July and I wanted to invite about 6-9 people. I only want to spend money on decorations and food because I recently had a big party and spent a lot of money. I've already went to a hotel, the lake, and the movies. I've also already had a hula and soccer themed party. I was thinking about going to the river where there's a rope swing and rock to jump off, it's very private and cheap, however it could be a little dangerous. There's glass from high school parties, and there's a small current. Other than that it could be very fun with music and food. Should I go for it? I can't find anything better.
You can have: Eighties karaoke party, if any of your friends have a machine.
A glow in the dark or black light party.
A fiesta or Hawaiian Luau party.
Movie night party
My birthday is also coming up and my 5 friends that are really close are coming over. I've got a big tent and we're going to sleep in my backyard! We will have some candy while watching a movie and then the next day I'm having a small proper party with a bit of cake and candy. If you have a tent I suggest that because you're not spending a lot of money on sweets and stuff. I hope this helps.
I don't know what to do for my 14th party. It will be all girls. Please help. My birthday is December 1st.
Neon and disco theme. if you have a house use the basement, if you don't rent a place. get the stuff form blacklight.com. Have a stand where you have the food at, and a couple of tables, music, neon balloons at the top of the ceiling, and etc.
My soon to be 14 year old daughter wants to have her birthday party at home - again. Last year we had pizza, they hung out and after the boys left, the girls watched movies during the sleep over. This year my daughter wants the same. About 8 girls and 6 boys. Any suggestions for activities? They may not want to do anything that I plan, but I want to have a few things available. Pictionary maybe? Thanks for any ideas.

Steel Bingo is so much fun (: you get a lot of cheap fun prizes and wrap them with plain paper. Then you put them in the middle of the people circle and roll two dice. If you get the same numbers on both dice, you choose 1 prize. You keep passing the dice around till there is no prizes left! Then you set a timer for 3 minutes and roll the dice again, but this time you can Steel other peoples presents! When the timer beeps what you have in front of you is yours! Its so much fun :) With max. of 6 or 7 people!
