Beach volleyball and swimming are more than enough activity and you can provide do-it- yourself sundaes to complement the cake. Luau parties with a Hawaiian theme also work well around a pool as well as a beach. Supplies such as paper leis, grass skirts and beachcomber hats for the boys are easy to find, and games such as water balloon volley ball and a limbo and hula contest work off the energy before a barbeque.

Teenage girls especially enjoy cooking for the party themselves. With help from willing parents, a French bistro can be set up with small tables, candles, and a menu in French. Non alcoholic wine can be served by the French waiter, and there can be a choice of entrees, salads and desserts. If this is too ambitious, just a dessert party can be a great success. Guests can assemble their own sundaes, or decorate their own cupcakes for prizes. To add a little more challenge, guests should also try their hand at difficult desserts such as crepes, crème brulee or individual lemon meringue pies. A good movie to follow completes the Dinner and a Movie idea.

Spa parties are very popular for girls and these can range from an expensive afternoon at a local spa for facials and makeovers, or at home with careful planning and shopping for supplies. Provide flip flops, which the guests can decorate and keep, offer mineral water and diet snacks and do some dancercise to a video or yoga stretches – then bring on the desserts!
