  • i worked for a party store and a cute popular idea was a red-carpet themed party. Get a long peice of cheap material from somewhere in red/set up an area in your house that looks like the entrance to a hollywood even and let the girls dress up. U can get cheap party supplies and props at, or make your own stuff with posterboard, cardboard. 1 mom bought a ^4 strobe lite to flash as the girls danced and stuff because it looked like paparzzi taking photos.

  • Do you live on base? If so you might can find something cheap to do there. Such as movies, bowling then let her have a sleep over at the house with snack food and girl talk. :-)

  • wel these days in age teen aged girls want a awesome cool party that you can even afford and still is appropreit for their age. If you allow throw a girl boy party. EVeryone can dance and hang out have good enertainment no clowns how about a good affordable dj. i know one if you want info. Go t places like party city for good things like non kid plates and paper lanterns. Get your daughter a cute outfit, remeber she is growing up and will want to be cuter than u you prefer but compromise with her and fairly. Serve pizza and soda your daughter will be fine with that idea. If you dont allow boys then have a pizza party and day at the home salon get nail and toe nail kits chick flicks ice cream and cool games and magazines like 17 cosmo girl and gl ( girls life ) for the girls. Plus pizza and a awesome pair of pjs there are some cool ideas that are affordable.

  • 80's themed party - drag out your leg warmers and turn on Rick Springfield. Decorate with neon and make a pac man bday cake.

  • sleepover girly girl party.Do thier hair, nails, dance, watch chick flicks ! let them amke thier own pizzas .
    if she isnt girly girl type how about a movie and burgers with a couple of friends ?or bowling? do you have a skatin rink for either roller skating or ice skating?

    can you rent a hotel room that has an indoor pool and have her party there? bring soft drinks have pizza delivered and let them swim.You dont even have to sleep over.We rented a hotel room for 50 bucks for my son and left at 10pm when the pool closed brought the kids home to sleep over.

  • I had a glow in the dark party for my 13 year old son. It was a hit.

  • If she's the active type...what about an outdoor field day type of party. You can have ballon races, egg toss, 3 legged race, bobbing for apples, etc...My family used to do this every summer and it was fun for us adults too!
