Congratulations! It’s your BIRTHDAY!!! That’s awesome happy birthday! Of course you want the hottest dance party in the school so let’s get going.
Theme is the key. Hollywood night club is fabulous or 80’s disco!
Make a list of about twenty base people. You can then add and subtract people. Make or order invites that pop! Sparkly is great! For the clubs they can be black originally with purple and green. Hollywood can be red and black with movie stars.
Get a few boxes of pizza, chips, momos, and of course Birthday Cake! If you want to go more sophisticated with the cake you could do cupcakes or cookies with your initials on them!
No DJ! It is totally unneeded. Get your friends to mix you CDs for your birthday or bring their own. Have a friend DJ!
Decorations- Strobe lights are fabulous for the clubs and mirror/disco balls are too. Make everything sparkle!
Of course dancing is going be your main activity!! Get out DDR and hook it up and for some old school fun you can always play Spin the Bottle!
Beforehand, talk to your parents about the ideas you have for your birthday.
Get lots of sleep the day before so you are not too tired on this exciting day. If you’re having a sleepover this may also help you try to pull an all-nighter if you want to.
On the morning of your birthday, wait for your parents to go downstairs to ‘set everything up.’ You’ll probably wake up early, so occupy yourself by reading a book, for example. Your parents will call you downstairs when they’re ready.
Ask if you can open presents. Make sure you show appreciation for your gifts, even if it’s something you don’t think is quite ‘you.’ Perhaps even see if you can eat birthday cake for breakfast, unless you’re having your cake for your party.
After you’ve opened all of your presents, play with them. Figure out how they work and what you can do with them.
Go get dressed (If you haven’t already) and perhaps go biking around the neighborhood. Say hi to all your neighbors, this will get both you and them all in a good mood.
When you return home call your friends! Tell them all about your day so far and perhaps how excited you are for your party if you’re having one. Make sure you let them talk a little about themselves as well, you don’t want to seem selfish or too full of yourself.
If your party is on that same day, you may or may not have some spare time until your guests arrive, so spend it wisely! Try spending this time with your parents so they don’t feel excluded – they’re as important as your friends are. If your party isn’t on that same day, then use that time to be with your parents. It’ll help show your appreciation for how special they’ve made the day so far.
When your guests arrive, show them where to put their stuff and remember to thank them for any presents they give to you then and there. Give them a tour of the venue, whether that is your house or a different place, and spend time showing and telling them about the gifts you got. Remember to ask them about themselves, this creates a balanced conversation which is always essential in every relationship.
Have a good time. Remember to enjoy yourself – it is your birthday party after all.
Have a nice dinner with your friends and/or family. Pizza is always a good choice – and remember, you could always go out and eat.
The fun doesn’t end in the evening when you’re having a sleepover. Perhaps, you could pull an all-nighter? Make sure that you aren’t being too loud though; there are other people in the house that want to sleep, too.
When parents come to pick your friends up, remember to say thank you for coming. Perhaps even offer to carry their stuff to the car.
