Adult Birthday Party Ideas
Every year, it becomes more and more difficult for birthday people and their loved ones to plan a holiday in order to make it not only pleasant, but also memorable. Celebrating an adult birthday requires investment and a bit of imagination to surprise guests and leave them with positive emotions from the evening. The right choice of theme and location are the determining factors for a successful holiday.
When choosing the right idea for an adult birthday, you should rely on the taste of the birthday man and his hobbies. Nowadays, it is possible to throw a fun party even on a narrow topic – the variety of shops and places for entertainment allows you to choose everything you need for a great evening.
And with financial opportunities, you can resort to the help of agencies that specialize in creating custom-made holidays.
The most popular options for holding an adult birthday include the following topics.
Based on movies
Movie buffs will definitely appreciate a party inspired by their favorite movies. It can be a costume party with a free choice of outfit or a pre-prepared list of roles for each guest. Depending on the number of visitors, you can choose the most optimal scenario for the holiday.
- Up to 10-15 people. Suitable for a birthday celebration in the style of a pre-agreed film. To do this, it is recommended to choose the optimal location that will resemble one of the key scenes, as well as select the appropriate menu. The soundtracks from the film can be used as musical accompaniment.
- From 16 or more people. A costume party where each visitor dresses up as their favorite character from the film, and as the main entertainment of the evening there is a competition for the best and most authentic costume.
If the birthday person wishes, the evening can be made more comfortable and secular. Set the table with light snacks and give them the names of your favorite films, and then arrange a movie screening of the cult film.
Lovers of delicious food will appreciate the theme party, where the main entertainment will be deliciously prepared dishes. Depending on the preferences and scale of the celebration, the following ways to have fun and eat delicious food can be distinguished.
- Master Class. The best way to celebrate your birthday in an unusual way and not set the table yourself is to invite guests to do it. To do this, you can hire your favorite culinary blogger and cook delicious and interesting dishes step by step with your friends.
- “Who is bigger?”. As a themed entertainment, you can go to your favorite cafe and play the game “who will eat more?” with friends.
- Gastronomic tour. A birthday person can surprise his guests with “islands” of food, each of which will serve traditional dishes from all countries where he has already visited or is just planning to. As an entertainment, you can arrange a quiz, during which visitors guess the country where this or that dish is popular.
Also, birthday people who are seriously fond of cooking can surprise their guests with their own live cooking process by renting a suitable location for this in a cafe or restaurant.
For lovers of jeans, you can arrange a theme party, where guests will come exclusively in denim. As a serving, you can use a tablecloth with sewn pockets, where cutlery will be placed. Comfort will be created by blankets sewn from denim pieces and patches.
As the main entertainment, you can arrange a contest of applications and patches that will be glued directly to the jeans of the guests. A commemorative prize will be given to the author of the most original piece of jewelry.
The use of flowers in the design of the location will help to emphasize the feminine atmosphere. Fresh flowers and plants will look especially beautiful. In advance, guests can make a ranking according to the names and color of the flower, as a result of which the fair sex will have to decorate herself with the appropriate bud and dress in its color.
If men are present at the party, they can insert live buds into the breast pocket of their suit in order to emphasize the “belonging” to their lady.
Black and white
A costume party in black and white is the perfect option for creating a secular classic event. Guests can choose to dress up in black or white. This contrast will help set a special mood.
At the request of the birthday man, the main theme of the birthday can be chess. If his friends know this game well, then as the main entertainment on the dance floor, you can create an analogue of a chessboard, and the guests will become figures on this board – some are pawns, and some are the queen and king of the ball, who were previously chosen as the owners of the most beautiful suits.
For fans of The Walking Dead series or just action, many organizations offer to hold themed birthday parties for adults on their territory, where conditions will be created for successful immersion in the essence of this topic. It can be a costume party at a paintball stadium or a pre-paid quest where actors will make guests tickle their nerves.
For a large company, you can organize a costumed themed party, where guests will have to dress up as the dead. The main focus will be the festival menu, namely snacks in the form of human brains and worms, bloody drinks with glazed snacks in the form of eyes.
The nautical theme has always been very popular at parties. Lovers of the spirit of freedom and adventure are advised to organize such festivities in a bar-restaurant located on the water for the most vivid sensations.
Costumed attributes of sailors can be used not only by guests, but also by waiters present in the hall.
The main entertainment can be a game where valuable prizes are played – an alternative to the “treasures” that pirates will look for. To do this, you can come up with and install a special obstacle course that only the strongest and most dexterous pirates can pass. For the losers, you can install barrels of water and a board, on which the winners will “force” them to walk.
“Marvel” won the hearts of not only children, but also adults. Many men and women choose this theme to have fun. It could be a dress-up party based on famous movies and comics, where guests get to dress up in the superhero costumes of their favorites.
To add variety and make the holiday even more memorable, we can agree that women come in male superhero images, and men in female ones.
A comic version of such a party is widespread, when visitors need to come up with funny names and superpowers for their characters, as well as choose the right costume.
For lovers of an active lifestyle, a sports-style party can be the perfect birthday celebration. As the main venue for the event, you can rent a place where all participants can play their favorite sport. So, for example, it can be a football party at the stadium, where there will be favorite snacks and loyal fans watching the game of their close friends in the stands.
A less active celebration can be moved to a bar where friends can have fun watching their favorite game on the big screen. As memorable prizes – custom-made scarves in sports style with the name of the birthday man.
Where can you mark?
There are many places where you can celebrate your birthday as an adult. Consider the most popular options.
- Bar or restaurant. It is possible to book a table for a small company or rent a hall for a large-scale celebration. These places often offer birthday benefits, with the ability to reduce the amount you pay for alcohol and snacks. As an additional entertainment, you can invite a host with a prepared holiday scenario, choose a hall with karaoke or a dance floor and a DJ.
- Lofts or rental houses. For a holiday, you can rent a loft for a few nights or celebrate at someone’s dacha, while setting the table yourself. The advantages of this method are significant savings on rent, as well as the absence of restrictions on snacks that the birthday man will order in a cafe or cook himself.
- Outdoors. This day can be spent in the forest or by the river for barbecue. Camping is also a good idea. Although this option is irrelevant for the celebration in the winter.
Unusually you can celebrate the holiday in the following places:
- mini cinema;
- sports stadium;
- art gallery;
- paintball sites;
- city tour by bus;
- swimming pool;
To achieve an unforgettable atmosphere, it is not enough to choose the perfect place for the holiday, it is also necessary to provide the evening with fun games and competitions.
Original games and contests
The selection of contests for a fun company can be an overwhelming task for a birthday person. If the hero of the occasion does not want to play the classic games that are offered at most parties as entertainment, and really wants to surprise his guests with something, it is recommended to contact special agencies for this, which can organize a turnkey scenario for an original holiday.
The least common games include the following options.
- “Bouquet of feelings”. The birthday girl is given one flower per basket, while saying a compliment and a wish.
- “Bottle of Destiny” Leaves with funny stories from the life of guests are folded into an empty bottle, and then they are read out in order to guess its owner.
- “Night of pleasure”. For a certain period of time, several participants must collect the kisses of the invited girls so that lipstick marks are visible on their body parts.
Among the competitions, those where guests need to choose the best costume or image, as well as in which there are valuable prizes, are especially popular.
The classic scenario consists of several parts.
- Presentation of the theme of the holiday. The host or the birthday person himself tells the background of the chosen topic.
- Rest with snacks. Guests are given time to have dinner and drink, as well as to say a few toasts in honor of the hero of the occasion.
- Table game. Without distracting the guests from the meal, the presenter or the birthday boy arranges a small digression in the form of a short blitz, during which funny facts about the guests are found out, helping those present to get to know each other better.
- Main entertainment. Then comes the time of the “nail” of the program, which most fully reveals the essence of the theme of the holiday. This, for example, can be an ordered master class for guests or watching a movie in a rented cinema hall.
- Contests. They are held in a comic format with commemorative prizes.
- Active entertainment. It can be dancing or sports themed games where guests can move around and relax.
- Unpacking gifts from guests.
- Summing up and ending the evening.
Depending on the theme and wishes of the birthday person, the adult birthday scenario can be supplemented with other fun stages.
