Who says birthday parties are only limited to children? As we grow up, the glittery essence of an annual birthday party slowly fades into the distance. Whether it’s because of one’s morbid surroundings or lack of meaningful past experiences, the excitement just disappears. However, that doesn’t mean you should ban all kinds of celebrations altogether.
Sure, adulthood may not be all fun and games, but there are multiple ways you can turn a dreary day into a lifetime memorable adult. All you need is a group of close friends or loved ones to elevate your birthday as an adult. And in order to throw a mean, unforgettable event, you can choose from either of the following adult birthday party ideas.
- Y2K Theme
While we’re all set into the 2020s, the early 2000s and late 90s era have developed a cult following of its own, known as the y2k. It encapsulates all things snazzy and crazy. And what better way to get hit by a blast from the past than to shape your birthday party according to the theme? We’re talking about affordable 90s decorations and trendy outfits to make a statement.
- Summer Pool Party
You can never go wrong with a pool party, especially during the summer. The best part about hosting a pool birthday party is that you don’t need to spend too much money on decorations. Some pool floaties, endless cocktails, and a lively playlist are all it takes to make a splash in the party scene.
- Backyard Adventures
If you’re more of an activity person and so are your birthday party guests, perhaps a backyard adventure theme might work best. You can plan a scavenger hunt, get jungle-themed decor, host a bbq feast, and even camp with a bonfire.
- Las Vegas Casino Night
While it may be badass to fly your guestlist all the way over to Las Vegas for a casino party, the expenses can be a real bummer. But what if we told you that you could host a casino royale birthday party right in your living room? For this, you’ll need to go big or go home. Bring out the fancy decorations, everything glitz and glamour, to really wow the guests.
- “Take a Shot If…”
Nothing screams bonding better than shots and shows. That is to say, if you want a simple get–together with your friends on your birthday, put on your favorite tv show or movie and play the “take a shot” game. It’s when someone points out a repetitive occurrence/dialogue in a show and says, “Take a shot every time person A says or does this,” etc.
- Murder Mystery Party
For all those who enjoy a little crime-solving, a murder mystery-themed birthday party would be a riveting experience. You may need to invest in a murder mystery story pack and then send out the invitations accordingly. This would include character descriptions, a proper dress code, and a promise to shake up their detective minds.
- Game Night
Whether you prefer good ol’ board games or enjoy fast-paced video games, they both work wonders for an adult birthday party. After all, nothing brings childhood nostalgia, like playing games with your friends. You can decorate the gaming space with LED lights, lay out snacks, get mini prizes, and even set up a drinking corner for extra heat.
Jazz Up Your Big Day!
