5 Tips For Hosting a Teenager's Party



Hosting a party for a teenager is undoubtedly daunting. After all, it is difficult to please a mini-adult who is stubborn, growing, and trying to keep up with the latest trends. Here are five simple tips to throwing your teenager an effortlessly excellent party.

Hire Professionals
Teenagers may be the hardest group of people to please. With that in mind, consider hiring a professional party planner. A Sweet Sixteen, quinceanera, or bar mitzvah planner knows the basic expectations of these events. They can assist you in planning entertainment, food, decorations, and the overall timeline of events. The planner will also pair your party with a master of ceremonies (usually a DJ) to keep the event on time and running smoothly.


Consider Eating Restrictions
These days, allergies, dietary restrictions, and dietary lifestyle choices abound. Rather than survey every invited teen before they arrive at the party, create a menu of food that everyone can enjoy. Think of having nut-free options, gluten-free options, and a vegetarian or vegan option. Do the same with beverage options because not every teen enjoys soda or is satisfied with just water.

Open Gifts Later
Gifts are a personal statement from one person to another. In a large group setting, such as a birthday party, save the opening of gifts for a later time. This way the teen of honor can continue to have fun, spend time mingling and talking, and not have everyone stare at them as they open a pile of presents. At heart, most teens dislike being the center of attention all the time.


Include Entertainment Variety
Not every teenager wants to dance in front of their friends. Avoid having an awkward line of high school or middle school aged children standing along the walls by having a variety of entertainment options at the party. Set up a huge screen to view a video, have a table of boardgames set up, or plan charades or even a scavenger hunt with prizes to be found. Maybe plan the party at a park or bowling alley. A photo booth with accessories will keep the kids amused for hours with very little effort on your part too.
Skip Embarrassing Memories
Not every parent means to embarrass their children in front of their friends. Skip the embarrassing baby photographs; keep any toasts or speeches short and sweet. Maybe don't mention their most cringe-worthy moments, like accidents, infamous tantrums, or fashion failures. Those moments may work fantastically for entertaining guests, but your teen will not appreciate it. As they get older, they may be able to laugh more at themselves.

Teenagers are not the easiest age group to please with a grand party. Treat them to a special event that they will happily remember as a huge success.
