And the guilt and the pain
Every tear I've never cried
Has sealed your fate.

or were you just too blind to see
that every effort made has failed
and there is no destroying me?

first of all, HAPPY PRE-BIRTHDAY!!! well for my birthdays, i usually like to be different and come up with a new birthday trends...

~one year i took my friends to build-a-bear (yes and i was 13) which for people who dont know is a place where you pick out a stuffed animal skin, put stuffing and a heart in it, name it, and dress it how ever you want, so it was really fun, and i made a stuffed cow [Smile]

~this year for my 14th birthday i went to HERSHEY PARK!!! it was sooo much fun and everyone had a blast, but make sure your friends/family enjoys rides, because that could turn out pretty badly if they dont [Frown]

~down the shore, depending where you live?

~another i went to medeivil times, a stadium where you dress up in medevil clothes, have a "feast" (by the way, it was really good) and watch people fight on horse backs and such. of corse, its all staged

~THE mall!! take your friends on a shopping spreeeee!!! much fun!

~maybe since summer is comming you could have a pool party?! they're always fun!

~bowling is a classic!

~DANCE PARTIES!!! haha my favorite

~or the usual if all else fails, take your closest friends to dinner/movie or whatever then back for a sleepover, which are always a blast!!

hope you have a great birthday!!! and celebrate it the way you want to!!!

Ok i know it sounds kind of lame but why not try a themed party, maybe with fancy dress?
I had a james bond themed party lol and it actually turned out to be really cool! You could do a certain time period like the 60's and have everyone come dressed up in groovy clothes and stuff, fancy dress parties may sound a bit childish but I still find them really really fun -----enjoy your birthday" [Big Grin]

Dress up parties are great, but sometimes you can run into trouble if guests can't afford a costume and/or feel obligated to go out and buy one. In the past I've found it helpful to provide a few low-cost costume pieces at the door, so guests who come without costumes won't feel left out. That aside, if you like dressing up, themed costume parties can be endless fun.

On campus, we have "theme parties" for just about everything. Toga parties have obviously become the favorite because of the sheer versatility of a bedsheet.

Of course, we've also done:

Rock star -- dress as your favorite musical artist
Retro -- dress in the style of your favorite decade
Generic Celebrity -- dress as any famous person you can come up with
Generic Masquerade -- put on your best dress/suit and pick up a mask at the door


They've all been fun, aside from cleaning up after the few who had too much to drink >.<

Masquerade Parties rock!

We had one after college one weekend and it gave us a chance to wear those prom dresses we bought and thought we'd never wear again.

I once attended a pajama party, which was really loads of fun, but some people can get out of hand. . so depending on your company and guests, you may want to reconsider the idea if it pops into mind. [Wink]

If you're wanting to host a party, then how about hosting a mystery party (or getting one of your friends to host one). There are lots of "How to Host a Murder Mystery" games you can buy, and there are games available with the same sort of idea but without the "murder" bit. If you're a Star Trek fan, there's even a special "How to Host a Mystery: Star Trek" version.

Or you could get some folks together and go do some community service before you go party. Helping people is a great way to celebrate...so maybe plant some trees, clean up a local green area, help at the local animal shelter, do a shift at a food kitchen, or other service.
