That's it really. Planning to invite about 6 or 7 girls (all similar age). DD would like to do something more than just have a meal together, but not really sure what. Anyone got any suggestions?

How about a makeup artist, nails, then out for pizza - leave them to it, then pictures. Lots of selfies.

'Build your own' pizza and movie. They all make their own pizzas and pop corn and watch a movie or 2.

I love the pizza building idea but as I can burn water and my five year old son can cook better than me, I think he would have to be in charge! If you have a reasonable budget, Niemierko, a wedding planner, also organises children's parties for any event. We used them last year for our daughter's twelfth birthday and they were superb.

Film premiere & after show party theme ??

We did this for our DDs 11th, basically they dressed up in their finery, DH put a suit on & escorted them all to the cinema as their "minder"

they then came back here where I had set up the downstairs as a "night club" -

basically means I threw cheap sparky fabric over all the all the furniture.

Dresses as a waitress, offered them "raspberry champagne" in cheap plastic flute glasses ( schloer with floating raspberries)

Set up a cocktail bar serving a choice of "mocktails" from a printed menu of fancy names in £1 shop plastic stemmed glasses. With straws & umbrellas & kept them coming all night ( various flavours of smoothies with ice, or crushed ice )

& a buffet table of fancy looking film themed versions of typical party foods, such as star shaped pizza & a chocolate fountain.

Disco lights, bubble machine, music & dimmed lights. Plus a net canopy with a split in the middle, tied shut with ribbon & strung up on the ceiling, this was filled with balloons, streamers, sequins etc & let it all loose ip over thir heads when they finished happy birthday & blew out candles -

the resulting sparkling mess kept them occupied rolling around & covering each other up in it all for the next couple of hours.

Take lots of photos, they take lots of selfies
