What stuff should i get for my 15th birthday party?!

Question: What stuff should i get for my 15th birthday party?
I'm having a sleepover with 5-8 teenage girls. What kinds of food should I get and what should I do to entertain them? What are some good scary movies? Wii games? I have a hot tub, should I that be an option? What are some things to do to have a fun b-day party?


If you're ordering in and have a low budget I would just order several different pizzas: one meat, one vegetarian, one cheese.

If you're ordering in and have a higher budget I would order Thai food or something you really like that's not every day food.

If you're making your own food I would do a Mexican theme where you make tacos and nachos and guacamole. You can have virgin margaritas with it.

If you want to have snacks on hand for throughout the night I'd get chips, veggies and dips for them. Maybe make some chocolate covered strawberries and bananas. Also have a few different sodas and juices on hand.

Scary movies that you might like are Vacancy, Pet Cemetery and Chainsaw Massacre.

You can tell everyone to bring a bathing suit and if you all decide to use the hot tub then they'll be prepared.

Arranging to all go see a movie or go out to dinner can be nice too.

**Setting up a manicure/pedicure thing would be cool. Get several new bottles of polish, top coat, cotton balls, toe separators, nail file and polish remover in case they already have old polish on. Buy some cheap flip flops for everyone. You can find some at the dollar store or even just Walmart.

Have fun and happy birthday!

Hot tub sounds fun if you can all fit. I also agree that something like make your pizzas is a good idea, it takes time, is fun and you don't have to worry about people being picky eaters. You can always make it more healthy with whole wheat or pita bread for the dough. I would suggest not having all junk food, people, especially teenage girls can be weird about food. They might just want to eat junk, but some are trying to be healthy (which is a good thing), some get weird when they just eat junk, and it is nice to have options. Veggies and dip, air popped popcorn, maybe do cupcakes instead of cake and you can decorate your own. As for scary movies some people really don't like them, and might feel pressured, uncomfortable, scared etc, and I had more than enough stupid drama during parties like this when I was a teenager (I'm 25 now) that I would want to avoid anymore, so an older scary movie is a good idea, unless you know for sure that they're all okay with it. Something like Arachniphobia is a classic, I know people who find it scary though. The first Friday the 13th is an idea, or really old ones like the creature from the black lagoon or something with Vincent Price would be my suggestions. Something like twister or balderdash can be fun too. Happy birthday and I hope it goes well.

food wise- nachos are best, add pinto beans for protien. you can have single serve pizza that are all plain and add your own toppings and have small salad bar. junk food have stuff for smores and toppings for pop corn simple is always better an that way no one gets sick
have a mix of 2-litters and juices afte 3 cups (8oz ea) of any soda the body lose water and will make you more tired.
definalty have the hot tub open, and get the plastic martini cupz for the dollar store and mix 1 part kool-aid of fave flavor or color add 1 part soda 7-up,sprite, seria mist.. then add fruit and a tooth pick umbrella.
older but good movie Dolly Dearest, never look at a doll the same again. also the best fun i had was when all the guest would have mini-pedi's and as a favor when they went home i gave them each a white pair of flip flops( dollar store) to go home with an show off the new colors.

personal story and party planning career.

This is the same recipe as for standard-sized muffins except that a mini-cheesecake pan is used and the baking times are different. This recipe makes 24 cute little muffins.

The keys for success with this recipe are:

Use the ripest bananas that you can find. Ripe bananas have much more flavor.
Adjust the flour if you have to. Because bananas differ in their moistness as they ripen, you may have to add a couple tablespoons of flour. The batter should be half way between cake batter and cookie dough for drop cookies. It should be stiff enough that it can mound in your scoop.
Start out with a hot oven. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and then reduce the temperature as directed. The initial hot oven creates a burst of steam that helps lift the muffins.
Check the cooking time. Because you turn the temperature down, times are only an estimate and reflect the time required in our oven. Other ovens may retain heat as ours does.
Fancy Banana Muffins

2 1/4 cups all-purpose flour
1 tablespoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

2 1/4 cups ripe mashed banana
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup sour cream (not low fat)
1/4 cup vegetable oil
3 large egg yolks
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 cup pecan or walnut pieces

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.

Mix the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl.
In another bowl, mix the mashed banana, sugar, sour cream, vegetable oil, egg yolks, and vanilla together.
Add wet ingredients to the dry and stir just until the ingredients are mixed well. Fold in the nuts.
Put the removable bottom disks in the pan and fill the tins. Use all the batter for 24 muffins. Sprinkle on the optional streusel topping.
Bake for 6 minutes at 400 degrees. Reduce the temperature to 350 degrees and bake for another 6 to 10 minutes or until done. Remove the muffins by pressing the bottoms up with your finger. Place the muffins on a rack to cool.
Streusel Topping

1/3 cup walnut or pecan pieces
1/3 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2 tablespoons butter, melted

To make the streusel topping, combine all the ingredients and stir until well combined and crumbly. Sprinkle over the muffins before baking.

My mom recently held a b-day party for my 12 yrs brother with the help of http://www.searchme4.co.uk/party-organisers/586200/1.html and it gone great. Everything food,decoration,games etc were just perfect. So i suggest you to consult them for the best advice. Best of luck.

Go for the old 80's horror movies, they're a good laugh and not scary at all! check out these:

* Chucky
* Poltergeist
* Tales from the crypt
* Any from Stephen King novels Eg: Misery - really good.
* The Exorcist (haven't seen it myself, too scared ha ha)

Have an awesome party though! ;0)

Have a BBQ and Hot Tub Party. When It get's dark go watch a Chainsaw Massacre movie :)

You could try methamphetamines. Those seem to be all the rage these days.
