If the special teen in your life is getting ready to "come of age", why not celebrate this rite of passage in style with an 18th birthday party bash?
Here are a few exciting party ideas that send your teen into adulthood with a bang:
Recreate the beach indoors or out by draping tables with beach towels, setting up brightly colored sun umbrellas, and dangling beach balls from archways, decks, and eaves. Chill beverages in wading pools, serve snacks in sand buckets, and celebrate with a beach bash cookout or catered clambake.
If your teen is into pampering, treat her and a handful of friends to a day spa excursion, or hire a traveling spa service to provide at-home manicures, pedicures, and facials.
