Need 16th Birthday party suggestions

Debbie - posted on 06/12/2009 ( 2 moms have responded )




I am looking for a few Umique party suggestions. My teen daughter turns 16 in July. She has no boyfriend. She is a great kid and really into music. We have had previous parties at swimming pools, skating rinks, bowling allies, home sleepovers, etc.

She is very feminine, kind, well behaved, and gives us no reasons for worries or concerns. I am looking for something that would let her know what a precious young woman of God she is and to honor her musical achievements.

Suggestions can't be cost prohibitive. I can't afford trips or vacations.

Do you have concerts in the parks anywhere near? You could look for orchestral or other acceptable music? Pack a picnic meal for the kids she would invite.

I don't know if she likes sports, but some minor league baseball teams have party packages - they provide the dinner and cake - you get great seats. I'm planning to do this for our son's 8th birthday. (We plan to celebrate 8 and 16 big.) I think I would have enjoyed it at her age. ?

A luncheon at a local botanical garden?

I'm not sure how much $ you would plan to spend, but maybe these ideas will give you something to work from.

Waht about a theme party like a Luau or 50's. You can get really inexspensive decorations at Oriental Trading Company. They have a web site and also other great party ideas.
