14th Birthday Party Ideas For Boys and Girls
Achieving the perfect 14th birthday party can be a bit tricky as your child is now too old for a traditional ‘cake and musical statues’ kind of party as s/he is now a teenager. There are many ways that you can have a party that is a balance without it being too adult and still fun.
The most common ideas for a 14th birthday party are have a dance party where you hire a DJ, a sleepover with a scary movie/pamper party or going out either to a restaurant, movie, paintballing, bowling or laser-tag.

To decorate the room, welcome the guests with a ‘Welcome to Hawaii’ sign and greet them with Aloha and a badge/sticker with their name in Hawaii for example Peter is Pika and Kate is Keke (you can find a name translator at hawaiianring.com). Decorate the room with paper lanterns hanging from the walls or ceiling, tie netting so that it hangs from ceiling and hook seashells and starfish in it to add to the holiday and beach effect. Scatter beach balls and umbrellas on the floor and play Hawaiian music in the background.
