They are certainly not adults and you do not want to do anything to challenge their innocence. So what do you do to keep your teen happy and make his/her party enjoyable and fun? Here are some unique ideas which will be entertaining for them.
Ideas for Teenagers Party Themes
The “ho’ohau’oli” Party
Are you wondering what does this mean? It simply means ‘to have fun’ in Hawaii. Yes! Throw a Hawaiian party for your teenager. I guarantee you that this will be loved by him/her and their friends. Now it is not affordable to actually go to Hawaii, right? So why not create the effect at your own home.
No, you cannot have the sea at home but by some simple elements you can create a fantastic effect to give authenticity to this Hawaiian party. For the decor have shacks of bamboo and hay along with fresh coconuts lying here and there. Try to have those artificial miniature coconut trees to add on to the Hawaiian feel. Create a lagoon effect by hanging streamers of different colors.
In the invitation cards mention about the theme beforehand so that the guests know about it. For the dress code ask the girls to be in those hula skirts of bright colors and a top with floral prints. The boys can be in shorts and Hawaiian shirts along with hats.
Welcome your teen child’s friends with garlands of flowers to wear around their neck, wrists and hair. Now for the food and the drinks, serve mocktails and fruit punches in coconuts to add on the charm. Put small decorative umbrellas on the coconuts and glasses.
Have sea food on the menu and sizzling sizzlers. Cut lots of fruits and cheese on a platter with toothpicks. Have Hawaiian music and drums and ask the teenagers to do a Hula dance. Have guitars and hula loops for the teenagers to have loads of fun.
Go Rugged With The Cowboy/Cowgirl Theme
Teenagers get annoyed when called cute. Yes they aren’t cute now and they simply get put off by anything that is cuteness personified. They want to be bold, rough and tough and daring. Whether your teen child is a girl or a boy this theme will be a sure hit with him/her and his/her friends. For the invitation you can have a horseshoe shape card or the background of stables.
A cowboy hat will also look fantastic. Ask the teens to come in torn, tattered and worked out denims with a cheques shirt and a jacket. The girls can be in short leather skirts and leather boots along with shirts and corsets.
Welcome these guests with a hat that they can wear throughout the party. For the decor to match up with the theme create a stable or a barn like effect. Have cut outs placed in and around the venue of herds of cattle and horses. Throw in lots of dry hay at the floor. Instead of the usual decorations hang whips, catapults, toy guns and daggers. Throw a leather saddle on the table to add on the charm.
For the food have items that go well with this theme. Having a barbeque counter will be loved by your young guests. Other items to jazz up your menu will be beans and buns, mashed potatoes and pancakes.

All this will give a lot of style to that venue. When the singer gets on to the dais to take on the party throw a spotlight at him/her to lend a little bit of style.
Dim all the other lights at this time. The teens will really have a good time laughing and joking around. For the food have lots of starters and finger foods with mocktails, fruit punches and juices.
