4 Simple Adult Birthday Party Ideas
Many times, it’s easy to forget about birthdays when you transition into adulthood. It might have been a craze in your childhood and teens, but the moment adulthood hits, people seem out of options. Statistics indicate that after age 31, people only celebrate milestone birthdays. However, it shouldn’t be so, especially when several ideas are available to make your adult birthday memorable. All it takes is planning and making provisions for a budget.
Organize a wine-tasting event
A private wine-tasting event is an excellent idea for an adult birthday. This requires planning and ample knowledge of how to store the wines. Fortunately, there are many resources for storing different wines before the event. Moreover, with lots of ice, you can be sure to have chilled glasses of wine for the tasting event.
An easier way to plan this is to ask your guests to show up with their favourite bottles of wine. This is often a cost-cutting measure for an adult birthday party. Before you know it, you and your guests will be sampling the rarest wines worldwide. As a precaution, providing safe transport options for guests who will not be sleeping over is recommended. This is to prevent them from getting charged with a DUI.
Organise a barbecue event with extra party options
What’s an adult birthday party without a barbecue grill and lots of beer to go with it? You can take it a step further by having vegan and vegetarian options on the side. This is to ensure that your guests have their different dietary needs met. You don’t want to leave any party guest feeling out of place with the food options. You will need many blankets, seating options, and a comfy setup for these barbecue parties. It’s even better if the party is held in a home’s spacious backyard.
That cuts out rental space fees, and that money can go into providing more food and drinks for your guests. On the other hand, you can pay for party rentals as a backup for more fun and various activities for an adult birthday celebration. The objective is to have something fun for all your party guests on that special day. In the end, a birthday party is meant to bring everybody together, reconnect with old friends and establish new friendships.
Host a film screening at home or a rented space
The options for movies are endless for an adult birthday party. With the right selections, a screen, and a projector, your backyard, living room, or any available space can be transformed into a screening area for party guests. Another option to consider is renting a theatre for the afternoon or night. If this is well-planned, your guests can pitch in to help with monetary contributions to rent the space. Thankfully, some theatres offer complementary snacks for such celebrations. Others may offer a special package that includes renting the space and birthday finger foods.
Depending on the celebrant’s interests, movies can range from cowboys to historical pieces. Setting trivia games after each movie can make it even more exciting. The winner of each trivia can choose the next movie to be screened. Another option is getting winners to invite other party guests to an activity. The idea here is to get everyone involved in the celebrations.
Set a dress-up theme
You don’t have to wait for Halloween to get all dressed up in various themes. An adult birthday can be another opportunity to get your guests to show up in their best creative party outfits. In pride communities, this is very easy for participants. You can make it even more exciting by planning simple ‘best dressed’ awards for guests who put in a lot of effort. Another option to explore is to ask party guests to show up dressed in costumes the birthday celebrant loves the most.
This will be hugely successful if you choose three or four themes that make up the celebrant’s all-time favourite costumes. As part of planned activities, it would be an excellent idea to set up a photo booth where guests can have even more fun. In this era of social media, you can post these photos on pride platforms. Before posting, however, ensure that all party guests are comfortable with having their images on these online platforms. The last thing you want is for a fun birthday party to turn sour.
Your birthday is the one time of the year you can use to appreciate how far you’ve come and the people on the journey with you. These simple ideas can help you make it special.
