    I'm gonna be turning 16 at the start of November so I'm planning my birthday party. I was planning on going out for a meal with 9 of my friends but I figured this would be quite expensive as my grandparents have offered to pay but as well as my friends, 10 of my family members will be coming along. The other option was to stay at home and just have a party there with like buffet food, but I feel this would be boring as a lot of people my age drink and would want to but my parents are very strict so this obviously wouldn't be allowed. Also people can't just eat for 2+ hours but I can't think of anything we could do without it seeming childish (like typical party games).

    I don't want to sound like a ****, but maybe do something a bit more extravagant like a house party or something? You only get one 16th.

    If I could have one I would but like I said my parents are strict with alcohol especially since I'm the oldest out of my group of friends so everyone else will be 14/15 :/

    Buy everyone fake IDs and go out? I know quite a few people that did that for their 16th.
    Anything to do with alcohol would be off limits because like I said I have strict parents

    You seem to be missing the point, they don't need to know. Just say you're having a meal or going to the cinema or something, then say you're staying at one of their houses. How have you gone sixteen years without lying to your parents?

    I understood your point and I've lied/hid stuff from my parents plenty of times but not only are fake ids exspensive (when there's 10 people), I think I'd prefer a more a laid back party, thanks for the suggestion anyways.

    Boring party idea: invite a bunch of straight stupid teenagers around and watch them awkwardly act like they're cool and know everything.

    Seriously turning 16 is meaningless, the only reason it has such weight attached to it in the US is because you can drive at 16 so often it goes hand in hand with getting a car and corresponding concepts of greater individual freedom - which doesn't translate to either British society or geography (not to mention law).

    Just spend time with the people you actually enjoy hanging out with, doing what you like doing with them.
