Rocking Teenage Years: How to Best Organize House Parties
Parties play a major role in a teenager’s life. Only cool kids organize house parties and invite almost every single one in their school, which can end up in chaos. House parties for teenagers are very important, as they use this kind of event to socialize and to put their name out there. As a parent, decorating and organizing everything for your kid’s party can be really overwhelming. But don’t worry; here’s a guide we have put together to help you out.
Choose a Theme.
Whoever decides to organize this party, whether it’s going to be a parent or a teenager itself, a good way to start organizing it would be to pick a theme. Picking a theme doesn’t always have to be something extra, like a custom party. It all depends on what kind of person you are and what kind of friendship you have. A theme can be, for example, to have everyone dress in purple or green, dress as your favorite artist, or dress as your favorite TV show.
Send Out Invitations.
I don’t really think teenagers send out invitations on paper; instead, they use some sort of social media platform. But you can design a cool picture based on a theme that you have picked and send it out to everyone who would like to come. Picking cool fonts will make your invitation unique.
If you are a teenager who has decided to organize everything yourself, you should enlist the assistance of your best friends. If you’re planning a party with your parents, you might want to sit down and have a quick conversation first. Let your parents know how you would like your party to look and how to set some boundaries here and there. Make sure you take out all of your valuable things and put them in a closet.
When you pick a theme, it’s easier for you to decide what kind of music you’re going to play and what kind of food you want to serve.
Make sure you serve finger foods, as they are perfect for parties like these. And to avoid breaking glasses and plates, because believe me, in a teenage house party, that is a big possibility that might happen, choose plastic plates and glasses or a disposable dinnerware set. You will save yourself time by cleaning everything. Once the party’s over, you can just throw everything in a plastic bag and call it a night!
Play the music before the guests arrive. That will take them out of their comfort zone. Have your best friend break the ice with some dance moves, and everyone will then join her. After you have danced a little, make sure you let them know where the food counter is, in case anybody gets hungry. You can also play karaoke, have a nonalcoholic drinking game, or play some fun board games. You want everyone to feel involved and have fun; otherwise, it will ruin your mood and your whole party.
A Teenage Party Without Supervision? What Kind of a Planet Do You Live In?
Having supervision doesn’t mean you don’t have control over what you do. A parent shouldn’t, however, stay at their kid’s party and constantly check what they are drinking or how they are dancing. There is a difference between being overprotective and just checking if everyone is okay. A teenage house party would need an adult, and in this case, I would suggest a big sister or brother. If it’s going to be a parent, you can just have a conversation with your kid before your party and sort out some rules together.
It is true that organizing a house party can be really overwhelming. But at the end of it all, it’s really fun. There are so many fun things you can do at a teen house party, such as karaoke, a non-alcoholic drinking game, fun party board games, and so on.
This all depends on what kind of party it is going to be, as you want your party to match your personality. Try to have as much fun as you can and remember that quote: “No one looks back on their life and remembers the night they had plenty of sleep.” Well, this is what the teenage years are all about.
