Quickstart Guide: Five Fun and Simple Ideas for Your Teen Party at Home

Are you planning a teen party at home and looking for creative ideas to make it a memorable and enjoyable event? Hosting a gathering for teenagers can be exciting, but coming up with engaging activities and themes can sometimes be a challenge. Fear not, Photo Party London has your back! In this quick-start guide, we'll explore five fun and simple ideas to help you throw an epic teen party in the comfort of your own home.

1. Outdoor Movie Night

Transform your backyard into a cozy outdoor cinema and host a movie night under the stars. Set up a projector and screen, scatter blankets and cushions for seating, and pop some popcorn for that authentic movie theatre experience. Let your teen and their friends vote on the movie selection beforehand to ensure everyone's happy with the choice.
We will actually be doing this very one this year for Freya's birthday. We'll be sure to share each step with you and how we found each element! Head to our Pinterest board to see what our inspiration is so far!

2. DIY Pizza Party

Who doesn't love pizza? Turn pizza-making into a fun and interactive activity by hosting a DIY pizza party. Set up a pizza station with pre-made dough, sauce, cheese, and an assortment of toppings. Let the teens get creative with their pizza creations, and then bake them to perfection in the oven. It's a delicious and entertaining way to satisfy hungry appetites!

3. Karaoke Contest

Unleash your teen's inner rockstar with a karaoke contest at home. Rent or borrow a karaoke machine, set up a stage area with microphones and speakers, and let the singing showdown begin! Encourage teens to choose their favourite songs and compete for prizes or bragging rights. It's a guaranteed recipe for laughter, music, and unforgettable moments.

4. Outdoor Games Tournament

Take the party outdoors and organise a friendly tournament of classic backyard games. From giant jenga and football to badminton and frisbee, there are plenty of outdoor games to keep teens entertained and active. Divide the group into teams and let the games begin! Don't forget to provide refreshments and snacks to keep everyone energised throughout the tournament.

5. DIY Photo Booth

Create lasting memories with a DIY photo booth where teens can strike a pose and capture hilarious snapshots of the evening. Set up a backdrop using colourful curtains, streamers, or balloons, and provide an array of props like hats, sunglasses, and funny costumes. Encourage teens to let loose and express themselves in front of the camera. You'll end up with a collection of priceless photos to cherish for years to come. You could also add in the use of an Instax camera and a scrapbook. They can stick their pictures in and leave a message for the birthday girl!


With a little creativity and planning, hosting a teen party at home can be both stress-free and incredibly fun. From outdoor movie nights to DIY pizza parties and karaoke contests, there are endless possibilities for creating a memorable and enjoyable experience for your teen and their friends. So go ahead, pick your favourite idea from this quick-start guide, and get ready to throw the ultimate teen party that'll be the talk of the town!
