Teenager and Tween party Melbourne
The children who are not quite yet adults have always been a challenge when arranging a party. You can't pull the wool over their eyes as you could with the younger kids and they will be upset if they find you trying to scrimp on the party. Normally this means they want the best and most expensive party money can buy. Clowns, magicians, fairies and face painters won't cut the grade with this ever demanding age bracket for their birthday parties. Pony riding and animal farms are also regarded as young kids stuff and won't be acceptable to teenagers and tweens for their next party event. Because this age bracket of kids are focussed on things like the other sex, loud music and similar things, you may be able to get away with a party which has little more than a good sound system and space to dance. Sometimes however this is just not enough and you may need to add something. This added something could be something as simple as a change of venue. Perhaps having a party at a farmhouse or on a boat is all that's needed to make it a more momorable occasion.
People have been known to hire a few limos for the tweens to have a night on the town, or at least cruise the streets if they are too young for licenced venues.
Teenager parties are usually best in the evening or early evening, so that there is no conflict with daytime commitments like sport and other activities and at a time that they'd probably otherwise be sitting at home being bored or watching TV. It also pays to have some good adult supervision at a teenager party as it's not unheard of for gangs of kids to gatecrash the party to attack some kid they don't like. While this is most common for boys rather than girls, because most teenager parties have both sexes present, the risks in terms of secutiry and potential violence are present at most teenager parties. Adult supervsion is also good in terms of preventing drug and alcohol-related problems. At this age bracket a lot of parents prefer to keep things simple and just take a few friends to somewhere special and to foot the bill. This may be a day trip to a zoo or even the beach or a holiday house.
Tween and teenager parties have many options and if you let your imagination run wild, you'll find plenty of options in Melbourne.
