    Lots of pizza and assorted kind. NO CLOWNS. A cheap good Dj, NOT AN OLD PERSON either. Encourage them to dance, if your not between 15-25, DONT DANCE( can you say embarrasing?) I forgot drinks. The party shoul be from like 8. Why? Because one, fasonably late, and two, it give you time to set up. NO PARTY FAVORS LIKE TOYS. NO CONTESTS!!!!!! Exept for money and cool things like gift cards(dont spend too much on gift cards. And IF you decide to do contests, nothing cheesy like sack races and apple bobbing things. Like Kareoke and dancing. Thats all I can say comming from a 15 yr old.

    Kind of difficult to answer, since you don't say whether you are an adult planning a party for teens, or a teen planning one for friends. In either case, you will definitely need music (better find out what those you are inviting like), Nachos and dip and other snack foods and lots of soft drinks. If you're going to have a bonfire, make sure that at least one sane, sober and responsible person is supervising it, or forget that idea. And yes, I'm a parent who has raised three teens.

    I think you should play rap & hip-hop songs for instance A Bay Bay or Soulja Boy.. Any songs like that.(T-Pain, Akon, 50 Cent, Kanye West, Neyo, etc.)

    If you have a cemented area in your backyard you could have a certain portion of it be your dance floor.

    You could serve fajitas, nachos, tacos, mexican food basically since the bonfire theme.

    I think you should do it from 7pm-11pm. I think that would be age appropriate since the kids ARE in High School.

    Burgers and such since you are having a bonfire. Tropical punch with fruit in it is better than sodas. A fruit tray would be yummy! You don't need a DJ for music, it would be cool if your folks would splurge for one. How about some volley ball?

    Sounds fun!

    ok it depends on what kind of area you live in and what your style is. loud up beat music is usually good at the beginning then later dont play any but if you wan to make it lower. marshmellows are lame, try using dough boy croissants, you find them near the milk abnd all that crap. then you wrap them around a clean stick/pole. then you put whipped cream and or jam in the middle, they may sound lame but my friends all loved them. for main foods, it is cool to have stuff you can make by the fire, like hotdogs and stuff. hope this was a little helpful!
