Birthday party help :(?!

Question: Birthday party help :(?
Well, I have a small house, and the party will only be in the living room and kitchen.
I'm inviting maybe, 20 people. Is that too much?
It will be from 5PM-12AM. I will have one parent present, which is my step-mom.
I'm turning 15, and most of the people I invited are 1-5 years older than me.
I'm very responsible, and there wont be any alcohol.
What should we do at this party with so many people?
And should I tone down on the invites?

Usually not all people invited actually show up, but just make sure there's enough room for 20. Have plenty of food and good music!! Since no-alcohol(minors), ask your step-mom to help you make the same type of cocktails(minus the alcohol) for fun. Make margaritas. pina coladas, etc..& serve them in cocktail glasses.You can probably get some disposable ones at a dollar store or local party supplies store. Get a disco ball, the multi color light ball or strobe lights to give the room a nightclub atmosphere. Get some of those neon glow sticks or bracelets to add a little more fun. I've also seen them at the dollar store or local party supplies store. Have Fun!!

Too many invited and 5 yrs older than you is too should be 14, 15 & 16 yr olds. Interest of people with that wide of age gap is too great.
Maybe a pizza & movie party, play some board games, karoake (sp), do make-overs on each other.
Play pictionary or some fun games like that and have prizes....
You could even have make your own personal pizza instead of ordering out.

I would recommend a smaller number of people, maybe only your closest friends. Have dinner (your favorite food or pizza, maybe?) and a lot of snack food (chips, dips, veggies), table games and cards. Seven hours is a long time to entertain people, make sure you have plenty to do and possibly shorten the time frame a bit.

How about some theme? Like Hawaiian. You could buy tons of decorations for cheap in Dollar Store and make some sweet juice drinks
