Throwing the perfect party for a teen is no easy task. The ideas of princess and unicorn themed birthday parties are no longer an option because it’s just not ‘cool’ anymore.

Whether your daughter is turning 13 or 18, a boho-themed party is sure to earn you some cool parent points.

Soft colours

Shades of pink, cream and rose-gold make the foundation to a gorgeous party setting. Incorporate balloons with soft colours, comfortable seating with fluffy white pillows and plates and cups to match the rest of the décor. Balloons displaying the birthday girl’s age is a popular and elegant option too.

Something to nibble on

Your teen may be moving past the days of fairy bread, party pies and sausage rolls on their birthday (or maybe not – they’re pretty delicious after all), but that doesn’t mean the party snacks need to be boring. Arranging a platter with fruits and cheese, a number of different finger foods and homemade mocktails are a recipe for a great party.

Picture perfect

Another fun idea for a teen’s birthday party is setting
up a ‘photo booth’. Hang up a boho-themed sheet,
place down a few chairs and position a camera on a tripod, and your photo booth is ready to go – and makes for great memories.
