I have absolutely no money but I really want to have a birthday party, it's my 15th. So I have decided to have a no budget birthday bash. This will be rather hard, and my parents are saying they will pay for food and drink only. I was wondering if anyone had any ideas for me?

No theme necessary, and I don't know how many guests, probably between 5-15 ppl. I hoped you all could help me with this, as you are so creative and imaginative. :-)

Help craftster! help me!

Im planning a party on a tight budget too!! Looking for ideas on here to help me make decorations though. So far I have found how to make your own paper and thats it, might make some big flowers out of it..

My sister has said we arent having a theme just colour of purple pink and white as my auntie has bought the balloons and confetti.

I will get back to you as I find more things!

Bunting!! Just need pretty paper and string or ribbon! If you dont have pretty paper kicking around use wrapping paper on the day from presents?

If your parents are paying for food and drink base the party on that! Have a 'cupcake and cocktail party! Bake a tonne of cakes (I know it sounds a bit primary school here) then when everyone gets there you can have fun making mocktails or milkshakes and decorating your cakes, Im sure there is something you can also make as prizes for the best cakes.

Oh and I just got into crafting with toilet rolls (haha) if you squash them and cut in half then half etc till you have pieces as thin as you want I got mine to 8 pieces per roll before my hands were hurting , they should have a petal shape, pva glue around one point / corner of the petal shapes and stick to another, I did it in 4s but you can go up to 8s, hold them for a min and they should stick (i also used a blob of clear nail varnish in the centre) Then spray paint any colour you like, once dry stick to walls and make as many as possible! You can glue flowers to more flowers etc and attach a ribbon for hanging decorations.
