Do you remember growing up and getting excited about your birthday party? Your parents probably threw it for you and all your friends came to celebrate your special day. Picking your theme was easy and places to party were plentiful. But as we got older, the themes started to get harder and the location became your favorite bar, or a meet up for dinner at your favorite restaurant.
Just because we get older doesn’t mean we shouldn’t celebrate the same way we used to. You should be doing something fun for every milestone you hit and even if it’s not a particularly special year, there’s nothing wrong with sending out invitations, throwing the confetti, and going all out to celebrate your anniversary of life! We’ve put together several awesome adult birthday party ideas to inspire your best year yet!
What could be better than bar hopping in your pj’s? Have everyone dress up in their favorite onesie costume, and map out a route of your favorite bars through town! You’ll be cute, cozy, and full of cocktails!
Find perfect pairings of cheddar, swiss, Cabernet, Shiraz and so forth. If you want to go all out, offer several appetizers with flights of wine to your guests, or plan a weekend getaway to wine country and go wine tasting at a local vineyard.
Bring in a professional mixologist to craft custom drinks for you and your friends all night based on their (or your) favorite ingredients. It’s just like going to your local speakeasy, and if you want, dress up as flappers and mobsters too!
Remember childhood pizza parties? Throw a homemade pizza party, complete with a pizza making station and add a blended margarita station (alcoholic or not)! Don’t forget the cake and ice cream, too!
Dress up in suits and stilettos, hire a jazz band or play some music in the background and pass around plenty of elegant hors-d’oeuvres. Don’t forget to tip your glasses to a champagne toast and thank your friends for coming!
What’s better than beer, burgers, hot dogs, and veggie kabobs! Don’t forget the chips and dip! Even if you don’t have a pool, you can always play some corn-hole or yard games, then pick your favorite music and you’ve got a party!
Greet your guests with flower leis, craft cocktails in coconuts and pineapples, light some candles, and set up your own tiki bar. BBQ chicken skewers, Kalua pork, lumpia, and halo-halo are all authentic luau foods to include.
Have your friends bring their robes and indulge in DIY facials, massages, and mani/pedis while sipping on mimosas and watching movies.
Kind of like a pot-luck, ask everyone to bring their own food, or create a menu of your favorite meals, and cook it all together.
Have everyone come in their pj’s and bring their favorite adult party game. Cranium, Cards Against Humanity, Apples to Apples, Fibbage, and Exploding Kittens should all be there. As a throwback, have goody bags ready for the winners.
You could head to the bowling alley, enjoy a local sports game, get a baseball/softball team together and meet up at the local ballpark, rock climb, take a group yoga class, or even take a hike outdoors with a picnic afterward in a nearby park.
