Who is your favorite High School Musical star?
Having a party? Nothing is more fun than themed party ideas for teenagers, they are a blast! It's fun for all and right now, HSM is...
This teen party has several options on how to make this theme work for you.
Because of how popular it is, there are many party supplies that are ready to go.
are ready made invitations, balloons, plates, cups and banners etc. and
I agree that depending on your teen, this may be the way to go. Or
sometimes when you're short of time, this would be the best option.
But personally, I like planning in advance so although I would use some of the party decoration ideas I found, I prefer to get a little more creative.
So, I try to come up with some creative party invitation ideas, party food ideas, and of course, the party music.
When I plan a party with a movie theme, I watch the movie and study it. What parts are highlights, and more important, what does my teen daughter think are the best parts and most importantly, are they fairly easy to re-create?
Then I get a look at the props and will try to create one scene as the focus of the party.
Does your teen and his/her friends like to perform?
Here are the Soundtracks!
If so, maybe they would like to work on a musical number to perform later, maybe for the parents. That is what my daughter, (then 13 years old and no boys at the party) did. The girls loved it! So did the parents!
This theme has gotten very popular, ever since the movies have become all the rage. The actors that starred in the movies seem to be everywhere.
This theme is fun and gives your teen a chance to be a High School Musical star!
Are you ready? Here we go!
Have the kids dress like the star they like best:
All of these characters have a dream and by playing one of them, your teen can pursue those dreams too!
Not everyone needs to be a main character, there are plenty of basketball players, cheerleaders and students to give everyone a chance to join in the fun!
Just remember...red is their school color!
Okay, here you can go with buying the HSM invitations that are out or...you can create your own.
I always get my teen involved and it usually turns out to be a terrific time!
Making your own...
The party stores have some great supplies. For this theme, I started with confetti and red and silver musical notes and some sparkles. You can use a program to write your message on the invitations, but then add your own creative style to them. Better yet, have your teen and a friend design the invitations.
I know parents hate this so try it at your own risk...but it's fun to put confetti in the envelope. Well, if you don't have to clean it up!
Don't forget to make a note that the teens should dress as their favorite character!
You may want to make or buy a banner or sign and hang it in the doorway of the front door. We also put a red carpet up the walkway to the front door. Having the paparazzi there shooting photos is fun and you can use the photo as a party favor!
You can also get a life size cut-out of Troy or Gabriella.
Decorate the house with red and white twinkle lights, pom poms, and the soundtrack from High School Musical playing as the guests come in.
Also, having a couple of CD's that your teen makes is a good idea, since everyone will get tired of the same songs playing over and over!
Supplies you may want to pick up:
If they decide they want to perform, you will need enough room for the teens to work on their musical number.A spotlight or disco light is always a blast!
It's time to put the band back together and rock and roll! You may want to have the teens get into small groups and put an act together.
A spontaneous Karaoke talent show will have everyone up on their feet and ready to rock. Make sure to have a variety of inflatable instruments around so every singer can have a band to back them up!
Choose a few the optional party fun & games and your teen will have a party they will never forget!
Always keep the food simple. A buffet of a good variety of foods is a nice idea.
This can be so much fun if you have a good group of teens who will want to participate!
