Casino night, Bad Taste Party or Action Party: Teenagers love theme parties, but only if they can decide and organize them themselves. So our birthday party themes for teens are for you and your teens to make the party the highlight of the year. Each guest and you as host has room for their own imagination and can implement the theme simply or elaborately...
Teenagers don’t celebrate a birthday, they throw an epic party. Everything should be perfect, just like in the imagination. Under no circumstances should it be embarrassing or lame. Unforgettable, unusual, with an exciting program or minimal program, full of action and totally chilled out. One thing is set: it must be maximum fun. And of course, the important friends must be there. Not parents!
Teenagers definitely want to organize their own theme party and design it according to their own ideas. Do you already have the first gray hairs and think to yourself, that sounds like a hell of a lot of work and many question marks? The ingenious thing is, a motto erases all the question marks: the teens decide on the motto and you help if desired with the preparation and possibly discreetly invisible in the background. And we give you here lots of ideas and tips for the 10 best birthday party themes for teens.
All 10 theme party ideas are completely different, are trendy or unusual, funny, action-packed, can be implemented with manageable effort and the input is certainly welcome by the teenagers.

Sunglasses on, casually throwing the dice, or gambling your head off? The Casino Party is all about gambling and playing. What exactly you play is completely secondary. It can be a nerdy role-playing game like Stranger Things, poker, roulette, taboo or any other game. It’s great when there are several tables with different games waiting for the party guests.
A casino party is one of the birthday party themes for teens that is completely different for thirteen year olds than for eighteen year olds. Cocktails should definitely be mixed by yourself and dressing up properly as for a posh casino in Las Vegas provides glamour.

Too garish, totally out, ugly – perfect! A bad taste party is a lot of fun, if you really feel like getting dressed up in crazy clothes. The funniest thing is when all friends bring as many ugly, old and shrill clothes and accessories from grandma and grandpa, parents, siblings and themselves and the Bad Taste Party becomes a real dress-up party. Who will top everything and win the trash trophy for the absolute tackiest outfit?
Of course, anyone who wants to can put on makeup. Clothes that are too big or too small, nasty color combinations and pattern orgies, old-fashioned clothes and kitschy accessories will make their grand entrance at the fashion show. The worst look of all will be chosen by you and will receive a gruesome prize: for example, a kitschy porcelain clown or a bouquet of plastic flowers.
Costume ideas: borat, garish lipstick, false eyelashes, glitter eye shadow, leopard leggings, oversize boy band fan shirts, wigs, plastic accessories, sweatbands, glitter, bathrobe, bath slippers, gaudy bike shorts, aerobics outfit from the 80s, old tracksuit, gold chains.
Party Deco: Look around in the attic and basement…. a disco ball comes super. Super are also Christmas decorations, cheap, garish decoration, kitschy knickknacks, clothes everywhere, wildly combined what does not fit together, of everything much too much
Catering: Snacks like chips, pieces of pizza or pizza rolls, pasta salad, chocolate kisses, preferably everything in cheap plastic bowls and on paper plates
Music: Call on me, 80s music, oldschool music
Faster, higher, further! For once, the Action Party is not about dressing up, decoration and catering. Because the party takes place in the skate hall, on the go-kart track or in the climbing park.
At the action party, you can have super small competitions. Think about challenges or tasks where you compete against each other or in teams.
Even more action is offered by karting gyms, skate parks, climbing parks and similar facilities. On winding tracks and steep walls, young people experience the limits of speed and their own bodies.
Costume ideas: No costume, with Mario or Yoshi making history in the group picture at the latest.
Party Deco: Aparticularly for round birthdays, you can decorate your table or place after registration with the provider suitable for the 13th, 16th or 18th birthday, so that party feeling comes up.
Catering: Finger food for a delicious picnic, if it is allowed to bring your own food and drinks.

Chill out, relax, and most importantly: no adults far and wide. Storm-free is a must. At the pajama party, everyone dresses up in their most comfortable sleeping clothes and relaxes in the shared sleeping area. Enough mattresses or sleeping accommodations are absolutely essential – everyone can bring their own sleeping bags or pillows and blankets.
And then? Start a series marathon together, a movie night, gamble, play an Escape Game or just talk and do what you love to do! You don’t need more program than that.
