There are many people who believe that birthday parties are done only up until a certain age, and then after that it should all just come to an end. This is unfortunate because there are so many creative and fun adult birthday party ideas. For example, the classic children’s birthday party involves food, favors, games, and gifts. Adult parties can incorporate all of these same things, but they can be about much more than a favorite cartoon character or TV show.
For example, adult birthday party ideas include things like a “casino” theme party that has gaming tables, exotic cocktails, and a requirement for guests to wear their best “black tie” garments a la James Bond. This is the sort of event that could really serve as a great birthday celebration, but which would also allow the birthday man or woman to remain out of the spotlight too.
Remember, when selecting adult birthday party ideas, that not all people actually enjoy being the center of attention. This is actually one of the primary reasons that people dislike their birthday in the first place. When you are planning a party for them, you should keep such sensitivities in mind and select adult birthday party ideas that can allow them to fade a bit into the background and still be the guest of honor.
Another example of a good adult birthday party theme is the “Hollywood” or “red carpet event” theme. This would allow the guests to dress up in their best designer duds or even come in costume as their favorite celebrities. There should be a few guests willing to serve as the paparazzi and you might even lay out an actual red carpet (which is an item readily found at most high-quality party supply stores). Trophies, or even miniature “Oscars”, can be awarded to the best, worst, or most convincingly dressed. The guest of honor can receive the most coveted award, and all of the décor and food can be built around this glitzy theme too.
Naturally, one of the simplest and nicest ways to celebrate an adult’s birthday is with a good meal surrounded by friends and family. Whether this is done in a formal setting such as a restaurant, or in a private home, it is important to still be sure that there is something “extra special” about the décor and the experience. Small favors, special tabletop décor items, and formal invitations are all a good way to be sure of a successful and memorable event.
