  • Ask her what she wants. She is old enough to have some say in what sort of birthday party she would like to have. By the time mine hit 13 they get a large say in how they wish to celebrate their birthdays with friends and family.

  • Then just have a small family party at home and let her have a sleep over with a couple of friends.

  • What is she into? I've got boys, but my friends with girls have done some pretty cool parties. There's a tea house here that does really neat Tea Parties, I used to teach sewing lessons and did some sewing birthday parties for teens, I've seen bowling parties, karaoke parties, makeover parties, and simple parties at home with pizza and their favorite movies while they painted each other's nails.

  • How about visiting groupon and looking for mani/pedi deals,, you could either have this with 2 or 3 friends, or maybe laser tag, movies, bowling with a group? My mom used to take my best friend and I to a hotel, and let us have a "grown up" dinner, but I understand teens are more sophisticated now,,, I am sure whatever you do she will love!

  • Once my kids turned 13, they both had their Bar/Bat Mitzvah. After age 13 we do a family dinner at the restaurant of their choosing. The kids just do things with their friends. They don't want regular birthday parties. They are old enough to let you know how they want to celebrate, if at all.

  • My mom put out food, rented DVDs and bought a cake. We had a great time at my 15th (9 years ago lol). We hung out, she left us alone (she was in the other room though)

  • Ask her and if she doesn't know then tell her to think about it and tell you or she gets nothing.

    Or have a makeover party, teach the girls how to put makeup on properly, so they don't look like clowns or hookers. Have someone come to your house and do a spa party. Makeup, pedi, mani.
