Those early childhood birthdays for your kids are always so much fun to plan and usually go off without a hitch because, well, little kids are easy to please. Once those teen years start rolling in, however, planning a successful birthday can get a little tricky. Between indecisiveness about interests to a great need to feel like they fit in, teenagers can be so had to please. Thank goodness there are lists like this to give you a few pointers so your teen's birthday party can make your child and the attendees happy. Check out these three ways to make your teenager's outdoor birthday party a success.
Don't skip out on the music.
Ask just about any teenager what they will want at their birthday party and there is bound to be at least one common thread: music. At an outdoor party, music can set the tone of the event and keep everyone from getting bored with the atmosphere. You can usually rent sound equipment, like speaker systems, that connect to your own devices so you can keep the tunes pumping. However, renting deejay equipment can also be a lot of fun as well because this can give the teens at the party the chance to get in on cranking out their favorite tunes.
Keep the teenagers occupied with something fun.
Teenagers have usually outgrown the need for constant stimulation at a party, but they will enjoy some good fun that keeps them busy while in attendance just the same. Even though inflatables are often thought of as childhood birthday features, they can be a lot of fun at a teen party as well. Consider implementing an inflatable water slide or even a bouncy house designed for older children. You may be a little surprise how much fun these big kids have with such backyard party fixtures.

Plan the party after dark and include visual stimulation.
Pick up some outdoor projector equipment and a large portable screen and make the party a movie night in the backyard. Allow the birthday boy or girl to pick a favorite flick and play it toward the end of the night before everyone has to leave. Serve up some popcorn and drinks and make sure there are plenty of blankets and chairs for all the teens to kick back and relax and they are bound to have a party experience they will always remember.
