Party Planning/my 12th birthday party

Question
hello,
im a girl, my birthday is January 4th and I will be turning 12. I have no idea what to do for my birthday part and I need some help with food, decorations, the guest list,(how many people to invite) and of course entertainment! I know for sure that this will be an all girl party and im leaning on the idea of a sleepover. the earliest the party could start would be around noonish. I have had other birthdayparties before  and they have been just a sleepover and I didn't really have anything superfun planned. I really want this to be a good party!!! could you also give me some advice on what to talk about in our free time so it won't just be gossip? thank you so much! I really appreciate it!!

Answer
Dear Grace:

I am not really an expert in teen parties but I do know that most girls like to do things that they have seen at other parties that were a big hit...so asking your friends for suggestions will get you the best ideas.
These days, most teens have IPods, texting, etc.  So be ready for a lot of that going on.

There are so many websites that feature just the type of party you are planning...I think you will find dozens of good ideas, there.  But I think your friends will be the best for getting your party to be customized to their ideas...

Favorite foods and snacks are usually easy for you young people.

Anything about planning parties for weddings, showers, birthdays, anniversaries, graduations,retirements, bar/bat mitzvahs, business promotions, fund raisers, and civic events. If I cannot answer I will direct you to the answer. I am not an expert in children or teen parties. There are hundreds of sites that specialize in that information if you google "kids parties" you will find an amazing amount of bright ideas. We do have a page on our site that leads to al the different kid's party themes, however. http://www.partyplansplus.com/themes.htm Not for those seeking information about party/event planning as a career. That information is found on the internet under "event planning careers" or at our site www.partyplansplus.com/started.htm
