Party ideas for a backyard summer 16 yr old party!?

So far, this is what I've got:

water balloon toss

egg toss

--any other games??

slip n slide



grillin out

cake & presents

decoration ideas:

banner hanging from my back deck

lanterns hanging from my big tree

lights woven through the fence

everyone brings a lawn chair

tables for presents and food

--anything else??

I'm thinking the time will be from 4-whenever they want to leave.

Any ideas would be great!

Thank you!!

    Truthfully, allot of people think it sounds lame! So, lets shake it up with the same ideas. (Hopefully your the parent, because I would feel sorry if you were 16)

    OK, so, lets try a dance theme.Get your iPod or CD player, load it up with tunes, and get a huge speaker(or 3) and place them out. Make a playlist of the best songs, and turn it on after like, 3 people arrive.

    Then, you can have chips, salsa, dips, allot ( =run the store down) of soda. Get the grill on, start the burgers and hot dogs!

    This gives a main activity and is loose enough so they can just sit and talk if they want. Also, you may want to try setting up video games like Halo or Dance Dance Revolution(depends on gender.)

    For the decoration, I have a few tips. But this is a must: BURN THE BANNER!!!! It is social suicide. Don't embarrass them! Try adding a theme, like island, beach, or summer. This will narrow it down. Then, you can try adding a few fire crackers and fireworks for fun at night. Maybe a tiki torch. Just whatever is SUDDLE, and NOT RIDICULOUS!!

    For the time, make it form 4 to 10. Give all the time needed while keeping a boundary on it.
