Inventive Birthday Party Ideas for Adults

  Jasmine Anderson is guest hosting the next couple of weeks. Her first article is inventive ways to throw parties for adults. I love this topic and it is not discussed enough. Enjoy!

We firmly believe that a great number of grown up people felt a sting of envy when looking at kids’ birthday parties. The kids seem to have it all – the cake, the toys, the fun games, and theme parties while adults seem to have cocktails and brunches. Doesn’t seem fair, does it? Well, if you’ve got an inner child that’s been looking forward to your birthday party or you have a friend who does, we give you a list of ideas you could implement in order to throw a fantastic birthday party for adults.

Beach vibes

It doesn’t matter how old you are, beach is the place where everyone can have a good time. Whether you enjoy playing beach volley, surfing, swimming, or simply sunbathing while sipping cocktails, a beach is the place to be. So, why not organize a beach birthday party for all your friends and ensure that everyone has a good time?! Bring some reliable speakers and play music from your phone, or you can even hire a DJ. Everyone can show up in their bathing suits, beach kaftans, and baggy tees, eat sandwiches, make barbecue, and feel comfortable. If the party lasts for a long time, you can even make a bonfire and bake some marshmallows just like you did when you were little.

Hippie heaven

If you have the means, why not turn your backyard into a hippie heaven and throw a birthday party everyone will talk about for days, or even weeks? You can organize a Kombi Van Hire, serve colorful cocktails in cut out pineapples, play music from the ‘60s, and even ask everyone to show up wearing retro clothes. Set up a photo booth, put pixie lights on trees, arrange lazy bags and soft cushions all over your lawn, and after everyone’s got a few drinks pull out a game of Twister for the ultimate fun.

Picnic time

As we grow older, the responsibilities on our shoulders also increase. We have to take care of our family, cope up with the big pressures of office and also be a part of various social circles. Between all this, we tend to have less and less time to actually sit down and enjoy the company of our family. This birthday, make sure that along with you, all your friends are also able to spend some really good time with their family, by inviting them over for a nice winter picnic party. Put up huge umbrellas in your garden and arrange for a nice picnic basket for every family. Plan nice picnic games which allow families to participate together as one unit, and besides birthday wishes, you would also get a lot of heartfelt wishes for this amazing birthday party idea.

Gorgeous gothic

Being Goth isn’t just about loving all things black. It’s about the music, the architecture, the style, and the elegance that surrounds this subculture. If you’re a gothic lover or you’re throwing a Goth-themed party, you should think outside the black box. Yes, all things black are welcome: black lemonade with activated charcoal, black napkins and tablecloths, and little paper bats as décor, but feel free to add a bit of red or purple to the mix. Red velvet cake, red roses, sugar skulls, and plenty of candles will do the trick. Don’t forget to use black invitations decorated with silvery spider webs and blood-red flowers to set the mood.

Masquerade ball

Who says it has to be Halloween for people to pull out their costumes and dress up as someone else? Masquerade balls are mature but still incredibly exciting and fun party ideas for adults. Print out invitations with a nice font, use shiny luxurious paper, and encourage your friends to show up wearing their tuxedos and most elegant gowns. If you want to take the things to the next level, ensure there’s enough room for couples to dance together with their partners. Music and masks are the most important things here, and if you do it right, your guests will feel like they’re in Venice at the carnival.

From time to time it’s good to give yourself the chance to become a child again, and birthday parties are probably the best time to do so. Depending on what you and your friends like, you could always turn your birthday into a carnival, a scavenger hunt, or a costume party and allow everyone to have a great time while celebrating your birthday.
