Tara Chambler. Themes Birthday. October 03rd , 2017.
Grab a couple of your teen’s closest friends and catch a baseball game or a show. Hit the beach, go river rafting, or book a cooking-for-college class at a local kitchen boutique. If you go the ball game route, be sure to arrange for a happy birthday message on the scoreboard! It is a moment of embarrassment that they will appreciate and never forget. A pricier, but luxe party option involves renting a limousine for a couple of hours. This idea has particular appeal to teenage girls who like the idea of a glamorous, dressed up night on the town. They can tour the city, snap glamorous photos of each other and grab dinner at a teen-pleasing restaurant like the Cheesecake Factory, a favorite with the prom crowd.
Fish Relay Game Divide guests into 2 teams. Use 2 large buckets to hold water and place at the starting line. At the other end of the playing field set up 2 plastic milk bottles - one for each team. The bottles should be the same and have a smaller opening at the top. Place a foam fish in each one of the plastic milk bottles (the fish have to float when water is added to the container). Fill the buckets at the starting line with water and give each team a sponge. One by one team players take turns dipping their sponge into the water and then running to their bottle and squeezing the water into it, then running back to the starting line and handing off the sponge to the next player on their team. Teams keep going until they can fill their bottle full enough to make the foam fish rise to the top and out of the bottle.
Flower Petal Hop Children hop from one flower petal to the next while music plays then they have to stop and find a petal to stand on when then music stops. Cut large flower petals out of poster board or felt - they should be large enough for 2 children to stand on. Use as many flower petals as there are guests playing the game. Put the petals around the floor. Tell birthday guests that they are going to pretend to be bugs and when the music plays they must hop or fly around the room, but when the music stops they must find a petal to land on. If you want to give out a small prize before the party write down a different number on the bottom of all of the flower petals. Buy small prizes or toys and assign them a number that matches the numbers on the bottom of the flower petals. At the final round of the game tell guests to pick up the petal they are standing on and they win the prize that matches the number on their petal.
A surprise party is always a fun and relatively easy option. The trick is keeping it a surprise! Enlist the help of a couple of your child’s friends to assemble a great guest list, choose a location and get your child to the designated location at the appointed time. Maybe throw in an at-home taco bar or panini buffet to make the party a little more special. No, not the old find a clothespin and a green Lego type of hunt. This is the kind Stanford’s freshmen run every fall during campus welcome week. In the Stanford version, students fan out across San Francisco with cameras and a list of quirky, hilarious and often edgy items to capture and bring back. You can use your town's landmarks and icons to throw a wildly whimsical scavenger hunt party that will be remembered for years.
Deciding on the theme, decor, and style of a 18th birthday party can be tough. They are still your kid, but this is their debut into adulthood, and it is time to transition to a party that is a little more grown-up. There’s a formula for doing young child birthday parties, a few party games, some cake, and a few goodie bags usually do the trick. But a 18th birthday is something special. Your teen is taking their first steps into adulthood and will probably want a party to match. If your child is already away at college when the big day hits, here's how to get a birthday cake shipped there in time.
