For adult birthday party ideas that are perfect for a simple affair with friends and family, or a full-blown bash, we will help you to showcase your creativity with panache! Here are some ideas that will rev up your party engines and get your creative juices flowing.
ADULT PARTY THEMES – First you must come up with a theme that is appropriate for the birthday person. This is vital, as it will give you a sense of direction, plus it helps to enhance the anticipation of your guests’ attendance. It will also boost your party atmosphere, while bringing a sense of excitement to everyone attending.
When planning a party for a friend or family member, you will want to factor into the equation what he or she enjoys doing the most. If you are celebrating a milestone birthday, then the pressure might be on to come up with an idea that will rock the recipient’s world.
Some of the most favorite adult party themes are:
Black & White Party – A black and white party is a grand affair, patterned after Truman Capote’s famous 1966 black and white ball. If your birthday person likes dressing to the nines, elegance, and has a flair for the spectacular, you might want to consider hosting a birthday ball.
Fiesta Party – Take your birthday person south of the border with a fun fiesta themed party. Tell them to grab their maracas, toss down their sombreros, and get ready to Par-tay!
Medieval Birthday Party – If your birthday recipient is a fan of the Renaissance, then a medieval party is a must. Everyone will have an opportunity to kick up their heels, dress in a super fun costume, and take on a new persona for the evening.
PARTY LOCATION – Sometimes selecting the location to hold the party, will enable you to whittle down your options and come up with just the right theme.
One obvious idea for a location is your home. If you are planning an outdoor party, just be sure to consider the weather at that particular time of the year. Nothing puts a damper on a party quicker than an unexpected drizzle or a rainy day. So make sure you think long and hard about the right location so everything will run smoothly.
If your budget permits, you might want to consider hosting your party at a restaurant or rent a community building. Just remember, there may not be as much privacy in a busy restaurant as you might prefer. In addition, the restaurant might not be able to provide you with adequate time to set up and organize your event in advance.
INVITATIONS Use creative invitations to set the tone of your upcoming party. A properly crafted invite can serve to excite your guests and have them counting down the days to the big event.
If you’re celebrating a milestone birthday like a 40th, 50th 65th, and “Yikes!” right on up to a 100th birthday, then you might want to consider creating an invitation that has a picture of the guest of honor when he or she was a baby or a child.
As you can see, implementing all the right adult birthday party ideas into your event definitely takes time and preparation, but the end result will well be worth it all. Remember, a successful party is all about the details!
