Part 1 of 3: determining the type of party

Celebrate a 14th Birthday Step 1

Step 1. Don't throw a classic party

If you think you are too old to throw a normal birthday party, then don't. Instead, invite relatives and close friends over for dinner and cut the cake. On the other hand, if you feel like having a big party, read on.

Step 2. Choose a theme

One of the hardest parts of planning a birthday party is knowing what to do. Get inspired by these ideas:

  • a theme evening (Hawaiian or Hollywood),
  • a Spa evening (at home or in a professional spa),
  • a make-up evening,
  • an evening of shopping (visit the mall with friends),
  • a movie night (watching a movie at home or at the cinema),
  • a karaoke night (go to a club or use your karaoke system),
  • a themed game evening (Nouvelle Star, Koh-Lanta, Amazing Race, Top Model),
  • go to an amusement park,
  • take a horseback ride,
  • organize a dance party (in a community center or at home),
  • go quad biking or ice skating,
  • organize a beach party,
  • go to a concert,
  • do sports (football or baseball),
  • bowling,
  • play the laser game,
  • organize a party in a club by renting this place for example,
  • make outdoor campfires (sleep in tents or roast marshmallows),
  • fights in the mud or battles for food.

Part 2 of 3: planning the party

Celebrate a 14th Birthday Step 3

Step 1. Set the date

Pick a suitable day on which you can organize the party. It is best if this day is close to your birthday, but it doesn't have to be. Make the effort to throw your party on the weekend, or at least on a Friday night. Another great option is to choose a day off. Be careful, because if you schedule your birthday party during the winter, spring or summer holidays, some of your friends may not be present, as they will be going on vacation during this time.. You should also find out if there is anyone else who is planning to throw a party during the same time as you. Your friends shouldn't hesitate between attending your party or the other's, as both parties will be at the same time.

Step 2. Choose the location

This is where the party will take place. If you are having a party at home, then the home party is your party spot, it’s that simple. However, if you plan to play the laser game or organize a dance party, be sure to reserve the place so that you don't have a problem on D-Day.

Step 3. Make a list of guests

You have to choose the guests who will be present at your party. Do you want to invite only boys, girls or both? How many people do you plan to invite? Is it five or ten of your close friends or all of your classmates? Discuss this with your parents and make sure they agree with the idea.

Step 4. Send invitation cards

You can write them by hand, type them out, and send them by mail, email or SMS. You also have the option of inviting your classmates over the phone or in person, or using a free online service (like Evite) that lets you design invitation cards. However, remember that there are some shady sites that can break the mood of your party.

Celebrate a 14th Birthday Step 7

Step 1. Prepare the food

Think about what you will feed your guests. You wouldn't want to deprive your friends of food at your party. If you only serve chocolates, fruits, juices, soda, pretzels, candies, chips, snacks, you can also offer entrees like Buffalo-style treats or chicken wings. If you want your guests to wait for a nice meal (dinner or lunch), order sushi, pizza, Chinese food, or take them out to a restaurant. If you want to give them breakfast, be sure to serve them eggs, sausage, bacon, waffles or pancakes. Also remember to have various desserts, whether it's ice cream, pies, brownies, cupcakes or a cake.

Step 2. Make decorations

You don't have to decorate the party place, but it still makes a difference. Decorating is important as long as you're having a theme party, but it's always best if you have some adornments, even if it's just balloons. Also decorate less or more as you see fit (depending on your financial means).

Step 3. Plan activities

You wouldn't like your hosts to be bored, and for that, present some entertainment activities. You could keep it simple and play some music or light up a movie, depending on the type of party you are having. You also have the option of hiring artists or dancers to liven up the evening. If you want, you can hire a DJ to help you with the music. This is the best option if you are having a dance party. You can also play these classic games:

  • twister,
  • riddles,
  • truth or Dare,
  • treasure hunt,
  • karaoke,
  • bottle game,
  • trivia quiz.


  • Wait until all your guests are present before starting the activities. You can make the exception and wait for those who are really late. Don't ruin the evening because of their delay.
  • Plan several activities. They will happen faster than you think.
  • Carry out activities that excite you! Don't make decisions based on the opinions of others.
  • Have fun and don't let anyone get you down, it's your day!


  • Make sure everyone is involved and having fun.
  • Always watch the guests and identify those who are allergic to certain foods, as this could affect the meals you serve at the party.
  • Make sure you have drinks that are appropriate for your age.
  • Watch out for the movies you watch. Just because you've just turned 14 doesn't mean all your guests will agree to watch movies appropriate for that age group.
