Birthday celebrations are not only for the young but for all ages. All ages are to be celebrated as each year could be a new milestone to you! Don’t shy away from hosting your own birthday celebrations even though you have long past your 21st birthday. Even though you may dread the thought of turning yet another year older, age is just a number. If you have a “young” mentality, it would radiate on your face and your attitude towards life!
When you were a kid, it was easy to pick a favourite theme or place to host your party. However, as an adult, it can be trickier. If you need help in thinking of how to plan and what to do during your birthday celebration, read on to find out more!
1) Party games
Parties can be boring and clique-ish especially if you are having different groups of friends over. In order to help break the ice and make sure your friends from different cliques mingle, have some party games to get everyone involved.
2) Do a cook out
If you love to cook, have your friends and family over to do a cook out. It can be really fun and engaging when everyone crowds round the island top and stove and have a few picks of the dishes as it is being made.
3) DIY wine tasting/ alcohol tasting
Create your own wine tasting in the comfort of your own home. Request for friends to bring a bottle of wine each rather than a gift and you can open up the wine for the wine tasting so that everyone can enjoy and vote on which is the best wine!
If wine is not your thing, you can always opt for whiskey, gin, tequila, sake or any other types of liquor.
4) Mixology party
Hire a mixology to create customised drinks for your guest. It is nice to have something that everyone likes rather than the usual few party drinks.
5) Movie night
You can choose a movie you like and have your friends over for movie night. Prepare popcorns, slashes and movie treats that can be munched on while everyone is enjoying the show.
If you have a bigger budget, you can opt to rent a movie theatre and invite friends and family over for a movie screening.
6) Fine dining
There are many fine dining concept dinings available out there. You can invite a chef over to cook a nice dinner for your family and friends. If you would like to cook the meal yourself, there are pre-made meals which you can buy and follow the step-by-step manual to whip up a decadent meal.
Have you guest dress up to the nines for this party and have lots of fun taking nice photos and eating gourmet food.
7) Glam up
Have your girlfriends over and you can host a mani-pedi session at your house, a facial session or even an eyelash extension party. Glam up and get ready a Photo Booth so that you can snap lots of photos after the make over.
8) Jewellery making
If you are into DIY things, you can try out making your own jewellery. You can make your own jewellery by getting DIY kits or buying materials from craft stores. These DIY jewelries also serve as good memorabilia and door gift for your guest to take home.
Have fun outdoors over some barbecue. Get those sausages smoking up and relax over a beer as you wait for the food to cook. If you are hosting the barbecue near a pool, you can even have a pool party!
10) Host an overseas trip
If budget is not your concern, you can choose a relaxing and nice destination which you want to visit and book a flight for your family and friends. Head over to that destination and enjoy a few days of rest and relaxation before heading back to reality.
