well, my 18th birthday is coming up relatively soon, and i want to do something to celebrate, but i REALLY don't want it to suck! i know quite a few people who tried to do extravagant, big, 'original' things for their 18ths but all backfired and turned out awful..
also, the majority of my friends will still be 17, so there's a limit on stuff i can really do - ie clubbing = big no-no, they're super strict with IDs where i live
so i just want to know what did any of you do? was it good? or not so much? recommendations or ideas for me? any discussion is good really - funny 18th anecdotes very welcome! lol
thankiessssss

I had a limo and went out with my close friends for dinner. Then came back to my house and had a mini-casino, and drank cocktails all night.

Perhaps, go for a meal with your friends - take your own wine and then go back to someones house for a sleepover type thing? Make vodka jelly! and ask everyone to bring buns lol. And get drunk and have a laugh lol

Or go for a picnic - take booze!

My 18th is soon, and all my friends are in Leeds.. It's really crap. I'm gonna be lonely on my bday! How ****e is that? lol

What sorts of things are you and your friends into? Are you 'immature' (I meant that is in would you enjoy something like an few hours bouncing around a play centre)? Or are you very 'girly' - What about a Virgin Vie party? (Or even an Ann Summers party - Is there an age limit? XD) Are you adventurous? What about Go Ape? What sort of budget do you have? What about a night in one of Alton Tower's themed rooms, or Centre Parks?

when my sister was 18 we had a massive barbecue (in march) - family, family friends, her friends, neighbours. There was at leat about 150 of us - it was absolutely amazing - one of those nights i will always remember.

It was amaing - he were all outside sitting under patio heaters - drinking heavily (first time i got properly drunk) - until about 5 in the morning - drinking whiskey with my grandad - good **** - it also started snowing at about 1am - it was class.

I reccomend something at your house - but not a house party with just friends - i dont really see how anything could top my sisters 18th - it was just class

Friends threw a suprise party (all my friends were waiting for me at a restaurant, parents tricked me into believing I was going out with the fam for a meal) the night before my birthday, and the next day went up to london to do a lot of shopping......

I really had quite a normal day. My granny came over with my presents from her and later my best friend came over with hers.

Then at night I went to the cinema with my parents and brother to wath St Trinians and went to TGI Fridays where I didn't even have my 1st legal drink. Infact it was only last week when I had my 1st legal drink (pimms- how exciting!) 6 months after my birthday!!!

I do regret not doing more really. Shame!

I spounged off other people's parties because the week I was 18 was also the week about 4 of my friends were 18. So on my actually birthday I went out to dinner with my family. While the remainder of the week, I just went to other peoples parties and got wrecked

I was never good at organising things so it worked out well

I had a meal at a really posh restaurant with all my family and boyfriend, then we all went back to my Nan's house and had drinks etc, then I went out into town with my boyfriend and cousin. This was a week before my birthday.

Then on my actual birthday, I went for a meal with my mum, dad and boyfriend and me and him went out afterwards for a few drinks. Then I went to New York 3 days later
